Indoor air quality is a serious concern for Texas homeowners. Dust mites, dander and allergens can flow through the air in your home unseen, creating problems for your family’s health. With a few simple precautions, you can improve the quality of the air in your home, eliminate these contaminants and begin to breathe easy again.

Get Those Ducts Cleaned

Dust and other contaminants built up in your ductwork can cause serious problems for air quality in your home. A thorough duct cleaning by a qualified HVAC professional can ensure that your Texas home is not suffering because of unseen contaminants hidden in your ducts. If you have a problem with dust in your home or have never had your ducts clean, it’s time to get it done.

Install an Air Cleaner

Air cleaners target a wide range of indoor air pollutants. They eliminate problems like dust mites and pet dander in your home. Air cleaners move air through a filtration system to remove pollutants. They can be connected to your HVAC system to treat your whole home or they can be stand-alone units meant to work in just one room at a time. Regardless of the type you choose, you will find that air cleaners are a great way to improve air quality.

Eliminate Problems With Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

If your home has too little moisture or too much, your indoor air quality will suffer. For instance, too much moisture can create a breeding ground for toxic mold. Using a humidifier and dehumidifier at the appropriate times will help prevent problems due to moisture issues.
