6 Ways to Boost Your Indoor Air Quality

1. Clean from top to bottom

When cleaning your home, start with the highest surfaces first. This way, any displaced dust that falls to the ground will be cleaned up last.

2. Change your air filter regularly

Your air filter will trap excess dust in your furnace—but it will also get clogged with it quickly. That can lead not only to dirt circulating through your home but also problems with your HVAC systems. For best results, change your air filter about every one to three months to keep fresh air flowing and dirt at bay.

3. Clean more often if you have pets

As much as we love our pets, they do create extra mess. Vacuum frequently to reduce the amount of fur and dander in your home and prevent it from settling on your floor and surfaces. Also, groom your pets regularly to reduce excess shedding.

4. Eliminate excess clutter

Books, toys, and clothes all can collect dust, so don’t leave them laying out. They’ll create extra work for you on cleaning day.

5. Keep windows closed

While you don’t want to keep your windows closed all the time, it makes sense to do it if it’s extremely windy or if there’s construction or landscaping being done in your neighborhood. In these cases, excess dirt is flying, filtering through your screens, and settling in your home—so keep it out by closing your windows.

6. Install an air purifier

For the ultimate way to get rid of dust in your home, install an air purifier. These systems filter out dust particles, preventing them from recirculating through your air. They create cleaner air for everyone but are especially helpful in reducing symptoms for asthma and allergy sufferers.
