The past month has definitely been a learning curve for many of us! With COVID-19 on the rise, a lot of us are forced to adjust to working, homeschooling, working out, etc. from home. Our homes have truly become our safe spaces. During this time, it’s important to do everything you can to keep allergens out and your family safe and healthy. Here are some helpful tips when it comes to self-quarantine and your HVAC!
Open Your Windows
Since we’re all stuck inside, it doesn’t hurt to let some fresh air in every now and then! Opening up your windows lets air ventilate throughout your home and can also lift your spirits during this time. Taking in some fresh air can help you feel healthier during this crazy time!
Sweeping your floors is a must to get extra dander out of your home! The number of particles you bring in when you come inside or that you collect if you have pets can build up in your air vents, register, and air filter and continue to circulate back through your home. If you’re looking to go the extra mile, mopping the floors and taking your shoes off when you come inside can help too.
Change Your Air Filter
This is a small step that you can take to rid your home of pet dander and allergens. Although you’re having to stay on top of everything else going on, taking time to change your air filter can make a world of difference. Try to do so every 30 days!
Check Indoor Air Quality
An indoor air quality controller can help rid your air of irritants and pollutants like pollen, dust, and pet dander.
