How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality in Spring

Pollutants such as dust, pollen, and biological growth can lower your Newnan, Georgia, home’s indoor air quality. They can lead to asthma or allergy symptoms, rashes, eye irritation, sore throats, fatigue, headaches, trouble concentrating, and other problems. Biological growth can also create bad smells and damage your walls, ceilings, and furniture. Fortunately, you can improve your indoor air quality in spring by using a dehumidifier, maintaining your HVAC system, and doing some spring cleaning.

Use a Dehumidifier

Humid air feels hot and stuffy, and it can increase asthma or allergy symptoms and encourage pests and biological growth. Since Atlanta is often humid, using a dehumidifier will prevent these problems by removing excess moisture from your home’s air. You can have a whole-home model installed in your ductwork by a professional, or you can use a smaller, portable model on one or two rooms at a time.

Maintain Your HVAC System Regularly

Have your system checked by a professional in spring before you start using the air conditioner to catch any issues that could reduce your indoor air quality before they start making you and your family uncomfortable. You should replace your HVAC system’s air filter at least every few months and trim any trees or shrubs near your outdoor unit, as well. Use a hose to wash away any leaves, twigs, grass clippings, or other debris.

Do Some Spring Cleaning

While you’re putting away winter clothing and getting ready for hotter weather, don’t forget to clean your home’s ceiling fans and air registers with a damp cloth to remove dust and pollen. Wash your bedding often to control dust mites, and ask people to take off their shoes when they enter your home which will minimize dust and pollen being tracked inside.
