Our Brooklyn neighbors shouldn’t have to worry about the indoor air quality in their own homes, so Petri Plumbing has some advice on how to keep indoor air clean and free of pollutants.
Keeping your indoor air clean is important. You may feel fine now, but the effects of bad air can show up later. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the health effects from indoor air pollutants may not be experienced until years after exposure.
Clean air starts with a clean house. Clean all the hard surfaces in your home on a weekly basis to remove dust and grime. Clean carpets using a vacuum with a high-efficiency particulate arresting (HEPA) filter. Remember to check and replace your air filters as needed.
Consider adding a whole-home air cleaner to your HVAC to remove harmful invasive particles like pollen from the air that are too small to be captured by air filters. For additional protection, ultraviolet lamps can be installed inside the HVAC system to help clean the air. There are two types: One type of lamp is designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria and mold in moisture around the coils inside the unit, and the other variety is used to sanitize the air being blown into the home.
Giving your HVAC regular TLC also benefits the air quality. The experts at Petri Plumbing can perform an annual inspection and maintenance on the unit to keep it performing efficiently and to eliminate any factors that contribute to poor air quality. Our technicians can clean the inside of the unit, making sure there is no dust, mold, or mildew. We also offer duct cleaning, sanitization, and video camera inspection of all HVAC systems.
