Helpful Indoor Air Quality Tips for Transitioning into Summer
Summer is right around the corner! As we transition into the warmer months, most of us will start spending more time outside. Our summer plans often include beach days, pool parties, BBQs and other outdoor activities. But, what most of us don’t realize is how poor the air quality is during these summer months. There is little you can do to control the outdoor air quality, but you can take steps to enhance the air quality in your own home.
Air Oasis has designed the Air Angel, a portable air sanifier, to help you do just this. The Air Angel cleans and sanitizes the indoor air you breathe in rooms up to 250 square feet. Its portability allows you to use it wherever your family spends time, whether the kitchen, living room, nursery, playroom, or anywhere in between.
Here are some additional steps you can take to help keep the air you breathe indoors clean and fresh all summer long:
- Keep your floors clean: Summer calls for a lot of foot traffic going in and out of the house. This leads to outside chemicals or allergens being tracked into your home. It is crucial to remove your shoes before coming in the house or keep a doormat at your front door to reduce the amount of dirt, pesticides and pollutants that inadvertently get dragged in.
- Clean your air ducts: Just cleaning the air ducts in your home can improve the indoor air quality immensely. Air ducts allow for pollutants, dust and other allergens to collect over long periods of time. It is important to make sure your air ducts are sealed and insulated to keep air from flowing out and pollutants from coming in.
- Install a UV light in your air filtration system: By installing an ultraviolet (UV) light in your ductwork or air filtration system, you will help capture and destroy harmful bacteria and other viruses that may enter your home. The UV light helps break down the smaller organisms that you can’t see such as bacteria and fungi.
- Install potted plants: Plants are one of the easiest ways to help filter the air in your home. The leaves and roots in plants take in excess pollutants and release clean oxygen back into your home.
