3 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

The weather extremes in Chicagoland make a tightly sealed home a priority. You want to prevent energy waste and keep heating and cooling costs to a minimum. However, contaminants can get trapped inside. Everything from pets and pesticides to cleaning agents, cooking, and showering adds to air pollution. With sources in every room in the house, there’s no possible way to eliminate all issues.

At Green Air Care, we focus on effective and sustainable improvement. Over our 13 years of HVAC services, we’ve vetted IAQ products, honed our strategies, and figured out the best ways to clean up indoor air quality and ensure healthy living environments across Buffalo Grove, Elgin, Round Lake, Lake Zurich, Highland Park, Wheeling, Schaumburg, and Chicago, IL. From air duct maintenance to the latest, whole-house air quality technology, a call to Green Air Care is a solution you can trust.

Here are three simple ways to improve indoor air quality:

  • Regular cleaning – A vacuum cleaner outfitted with a HEPA filter and vacuuming once or twice per week will cut down on allergens. Consider hard-surface flooring rather than wall-to-wall carpeting that tends to contain pollutants. Regularly washing bedding in water that is at least 130° F is recommended. Also, consider adding dust mite-proof covers to mattresses, box springs, and pillows. Avoid clutter that can trap dust.
  • Air purification – Take proactive measures with the installation of a whole-house air purifier. Modern IAQ technology, such as ionic purifiers, aggressively traps particulates, kills pathogens, eliminates unpleasant odors, operates quietly, and makes a significant difference in the health and cleanliness of the breathing air. We offer free estimates, and as a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, specialize in the leading IAQ innovations.
  • Duct cleaning – Pet dander, dust, construction debris, decomposing rodents, pest feces, insects, and mold are some of the unpleasant contaminants often concealed inside the ductwork. Whenever the air conditioner or furnace runs, there is the risk of harmful toxins becoming airborne and getting circulated throughout the home. The solution is professional duct cleaning from Green Air Care. We have the specialized equipment, advanced knowledge, and hands-on experience to complete a thorough cleaning without damage or disruption.
