Tips for allergy-free indoor spaces

AC Filters 4 Less
Whether it’s your home or business, allergens can easily become trapped inside carpets, rugs, and in all sorts of surfaces. They can cause everything from minor eye and respiratory irritation, and they can even become a more serious issue for those who already suffer from asthma or allergies.

So, if you want to keep your indoor spaces as comfortable and healthy as possible, there are some steps you should take to help make them allergy-free.

Cleanse the air

Air filters are a great way to filter out the pollution that gets brought in from outside and then trapped indoors. The first way to keep the air clean is to setup air filters that are rated for the square footage of each open area you place them in. These air filters will help remove dust mites and other allergens for a healthier indoor environment.

Maintain your filters

Now, air filters are not a “set and forget” type of device. You will need to check the manual for the air filter you purchase, and you will also need to take the filter itself out regularly to clean it. The filter should be replaced every so often as well to continue functioning at its best.

Vacuum regularly

Did you know that carpets are the ideal breeding ground for allergens and bacteria? Vacuuming regularly is essential to maintaining the surface of your carpets and keeping particles from getting embedded deeper within the fibers.

Clean your carpets

Vacuuming alone does nothing to kill germs or disinfect, and it also cannot remove the particles that are deeper into your carpet’s fibers. That’s when a regular professional carpet cleaning job should be carried out. Depending on usage, you should plan on having carpets cleaned every 6-12 months.

Be mindful of cleaning products

Harsh chemicals aren’t always the best option to get the job done, and if you’re using chemicals to clean carpets and other areas of your indoor space, you might be causing more harm. These chemicals leave a residue behind on most surfaces that can further degrade the air quality. Be mindful of what you’re using to clean.

As you can see, just a few simple steps can quickly clean up your indoor space and make for a healthier living/working environment. With regular maintenance and attention to detail, you can prevent the build-up of germs and allergens and keep your indoor spaces looking and feeling great.

With a new year upon us, now would be a great time to commit to making your indoor spaces healthier. Start the new year off right by implementing new clean protocols and a schedule to keep your indoor spaces clean and allergy-free. Once you start, you'll undoubtedly be able to feel the difference.
