5 Simple Ways to Improve Air Quality in Your Home

1. Keep Your Floors Clean

By sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming often, you reduce the pollutants and allergens sticking around in your home. Using floor mats reduces the amount of dirt and pesticides entering your home.

2. Watch the Humidity in Your Home

Pests and allergens love humidity. It’s very important to keep the humidity in your home between 30% and 50%. Using a dehumidifier during the summer can help reduce humidity in your indoor air. Your air conditioner can also reduce your pollen count.

3. Keep Your Home Smoke Free

Smoking not only has a disastrous effect on your health, but on your indoor air quality as well. Cigarette smoke alone contains over 4,000 chemicals that can be released into your air.

4. Test for Radon

Radon is a colorless and odorless gas that significantly increases the risk of lung cancer. It appears in both newer and older homes. Testing is inexpensive and easy.

5. Focus on Going Natural

Sprays and cleaning solutions used in your home can be filled with synthetic ingredients that are harmful to your health. Make sure to check the ingredients before purchasing products.

“I first met Marcus Pickett, the owner, in 2006 when he installed a new furnace in my home as part of a city rehab project. Out of all the contractors who worked on my house, he is the only one I still do business with, and I had him put in central air in 2009. He does quality work at reasonable rates, and the equipment is reliable and efficient. But what impresses me the most is his attitude. He sees each customer as an individual, not just an invoice. He is professional yet friendly, explains all your options and really tries to help you get the best value for your money.”

“Our furnace went out in January, on one of the coldest days we had this past winter. We called Temperature Doctors off of a recommendation, and they sent someone out and made sure we were able to get the furnace up and running that night. We would HIGHLY recommend Temperature Doctors to anyone looking for an honest, trustworthy company to maintain, repair or replace their existing units. Thank you for all of your help, Temperature Doctors!!”
