Are you starting to get cabin fever? Since there’s no sign of leaving our homes soon because of Covid-19, and you’re spending all that extra time indoors, it’s important to make sure your indoor air quality is high. One of the best ways to tackle poor indoor air quality is with a clean home. Here are some household chores that can raise the quality of your indoor air.
Sweep and Flip Your Mattress
Your mattress can play host to all sorts of unpleasant odors and bacteria. You want to make sure that where you lay your head down at night is fresh.
Wipe Off Your Fan Blades
When was the last time you cleaned the blades on your ceiling fan? They be dust traps, especially if they aren’t in use. Freshen up your indoor air quality by going the extra mile and wiping those off.
Dust. Dust. Dust.
If you are noticing dust on more surfaces than usual, it could be an issue with your furnace filter. Change your furnace filter at least twice per year. It is the best line of defense against poor indoor air quality – trapping harmful particles before they have the chance to circulate through your air.
Don’t Wear Shoes Inside
Have a go-to pair of slippers or stick with socks. You could be tracking all sorts of unpleasantness from the outdoors into your home – lowering indoor air quality and making it necessary to clean your floor more often.
Scrub The Carpets
Carpets, like ceiling fan blades and mattresses, can be bacteria traps. Deep cleaning your carpets at least once a year will help you get all those deeply embedded particles out of your home.
