Because of airborne diseases, people are more concerned about the quality of the air in their homes more than ever. Here are some tips on how to clean in the air in your home to avoid viruses that are typically spread through the air.
1. Clean Your HVAC filter
Every HVAC system has a filter that collects unwanted particles in the air. If you don’t clean the filter regularly, these toxins can be put out into the air. It’s a simple process, and there is generally an indicator on the unit to tell you when it’s time. When there is a virus outbreak, you should clean it more often than normal.
2. Buy an Air Purifier
The filter can’t possibly pick up all of the bad things in your home’s air. Get some additional help by purchasing an air filter. This air filter will pick up dust and germs in the air well before they reach your HVAC unit. The best place to put the air purifier to get the most benefits is in the bedroom or in the living room.
3. Vacuum and Clean Often
When dust gets into the air, people end up breathing it in. Respiratory diseases and breathing in dust will only exasperate any problems you may have. To get rid of extra dust that could disrupt your breathing, you should dust the furniture often. You should also vacuum regularly to keep the room as clean as possible.
4. Get Professional HVAC Maintenance
If you want your air to be clean, you should ensure your HVAC unit is running properly. To do this, you should get regular maintenance once a year from CABS Heating & Air Conditioning. It’s great timing to get the maintenance done right at the beginning of spring or during a virus outbreak.
