When it comes to maintaining overall health and wellness, the spaces in which people live and work have an enormous impact on the efficiency of that process. To start, the air quality in a room, measured as the amount of dust and particulate matter found within a given space, influences everything from allergies to aggravating respiratory diseases. However, keeping the air clean and fresh is simple if a few proactive steps are taken.
Improving Indoor Air Quality
Here are six suggestions for improving the air quality in a room that involves everything from buying a few houseplants to employing professionals to help install and maintain equipment.
Make a Housecleaning Schedule and Stick to It
One of the best ways to maintain air quality and an optimal environment is to create and stick to a regular cleaning schedule. Minimizing dust and dirt inside the home presents less that can be circulated in the air.
Buy Some Houseplants
Houseplants not only add life and color to a given space, but they also purify the air. Classic indoor plants include rubber plants and bamboo palms. Both are resilient, low-maintenance, and aesthetically pleasing. Choose plants that will grow in the available interior light. Also, select plants that match your maintenance abilities – leave high maintenance plants to the experts.
Change Air Filters as Scheduled
Changing air filters on schedule makes the air cleaner and allows the HVAC system to work more efficiently. In addition, regular maintenance and cleaning can extend the life of the HVAC system by spotting any problems and fixing them before they become significant issues.
Installing dehumidifiers can significantly improve the air quality in a given space and make it more comfortable. There are small units and commercial-grade dehumidifiers to suit any range of usage scenarios.
Use Air Purifiers
Along with dehumidifiers, specialized air purifiers come in various sizes, from small, in-room devices to those fit for large commercial spaces. In addition, there are air purifiers that specialize in removing different types of contaminants using multiple technologies to achieve that. So there’s something for everyone, from medical-grade purifiers to something to help with seasonal allergies.
