We all try to keep healthy. We watch what we eat and try to keep an active lifestyle. We exercise and drink water to stay hydrated. We try to keep our homes and family clean and healthy. We try not to get sick and take precautions to avoid the spread of bad germs.
We can spend a lot of time trying to keep our bodies in top performance inside and out. But do we take a moment to think about the air we are breathing inside our living spaces?
This is an important safety and health precaution as many of the illness we experience are airborne. Our breathing air must be taken seriously and be kept as clean as we can get it to keep our family healthy throughout the year.
But how do we do this? How do we keep our air healthy in our home and can it be done on a budget? Are there easy ways to clean our air? The answer to all those questions is “yes”.
Try these easy ways to keep your air clean and healthy all year long.
In order to keep your home’s air clean, you need to clean the home on a regular basis. Dust particles settle on furniture, curtains and floors from day to day. They build up and irritate allergies and can cause lung irritations.
Dusting: Do this once a week. Dust the furniture and all other surfaces. Be sure to avoid the feather duster and instead use a slightly damp, clean cloth to remove the dust. The cloth will pick up the dust and trap it was as a feather duster simply whisks the dust up into the air once again.
After the slightly damp cloth is used, follow it w1ith a dry cloth to get up any moisture that might have been left behind.
Vacuum and sweep floors at least twice a week to get up all the dust, dirt and bad bacteria. Vacuum slowly for a deeper clean. Sweep and mop wood, tile, and linoleum floors.
A house’s flooring gets dirty extremely fast and the dirt gathers in corners. Shoes and feet kick the bacteria up into the air to pollute the air we breathe.
Bathrooms and Kitchens: These gather moisture that can create mould, mildew and other bad bacteria if the rooms are not cleaned on a daily basis.
If you do not have air vents in the kitchen and bathrooms, then now is the time to install them. Air vents allow for proper ventilation. This helps to keep the moisture levels in these two rooms under control. If you already have vents, then make sure they are cleaned and well maintained.
Open windows can also do the same job however, you will need to leave them open all day and night to perform the same effectiveness as an air vent.
Air ducts would be cleaned at least once a year. This is important because dirt and debris build-up throughout the ducts then get transferred into the air of your home. A professional should be called to perform this service for a thorough cleaning.
Try to schedule a cleaning at the end of the cold season before the heat hits. This will leave your air ducts ready for the air cooler to be switched on.
The two main air cooling options for any home are the evaporative air cooler and the air conditioner. For areas that experience dry heat, the air cooler is the best alternative. Both cooling systems need to be maintained on a regular basis for maximum effectiveness.
Installing an air cooler is a great way to ensure fresh air ventilation throughout your home. The evaporative air cooler is continually pumping in outside air then cooling it with refreshing water before distributing the cool moistened air into your home.
This air is not only fresher than an air conditioner provides but it is also softer to breathe when the air outside is harsh. Modern units automatically disinfect the water in their systems so nothing but clean- bacteria-free water is used to produce clean air in your home.
This device is used to purify the air in one room of your home. It is a great idea if you have a small space that needs a more purified air than the rest of the house, say a child’s room for instance, or maybe your bedroom if you have severe allergies.
Air purifiers are a great way to perform this service. Just make sure to use them according to manufacturer’s guidelines and keep them clean and well maintained.
This is the easiest way to gain clean air in the home however, it all depends on the environment around your house. Are you near an industrial zone? Are you allergic to allergens outside? These can be a factor when deciding to open your windows or not.
Open windows are also needed for air coolers however, it is for the air inside the home having an avenue to leave the house as fresh air is coming through the air vents. In the instance of an active air cooler, the air is leaving the open window and not coming in it.
Without an evaporative air cooler in operation, an open window is a risky endeavour when you are trying to make your inside air healthier for your family.
If you have pets, then it is doubly important to keep the home clean and their pet beds cleaned as well. Pet dander and fur gets swept up into the air and lands everywhere which is not good for those who suffer from allergies.
Keeping them brushed and their hair fluffs thrown away will also help to keep the air clean and pet dander-free.
These are just some of the many ways to keep the air in your home healthy and safe for a family of any age. It does not cost a lot to keep your home air clean but its cleanliness is crucial to the well-being of your family and yourself.
With a few of these simple tips, you will be able to clean the air and help combat health issues far more effectively when allergy, cold and flu season strikes.
