How To Have Cleaner Air in Your Home

1.) Vacuum and Dust Frequently

Depending on your family members and whether or not you have pets, you might have to vacuum and/or dust once a week or daily to help manage and lessen the allergens on the surfaces of your home.

2.) Install Detectors

Install a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector. Also, be sure to change the batteries in your smoke and other detectors on a regular basis. Setup a changing system and then set reminders.

3.) Test Radon Levels

A radon test is very non-invasive and only takes a short amount of time. Also, if you have a radon system in your home, be sure to maintain proper working order by checking the levels frequently.

4.) Change Air Filters

Be sure to set reminders to change your air filters on a regular basis. The Filtrete Healthy Living Ultimate Allergen Reduction Filter MPR 1900 is effective at capturing 93% of large airborne particles such as dust, pollen and mold spores from the air passing through the filter. It also attracts and captures microscopic allergens like pet dander, smoke, household dust and microscopic particles that can carry bacteria and viruses.
