What Is Indoor Air Pollution?
Indoor air pollution can be a big problem for Florida residents. Dust, pollen, and other sources of irritants are just a few of the things we reduce when we clean out our house or other living quarters. But dusting and vacuuming can only go so far when the air filters are neglected. Over time, this creates a buildup of dust, pollen, and mold in the ventilation system, which can cause many different types of illnesses.
How Can Indoor Air Pollution Be Measured?
Indoor air pollution can be measured using IAQ, or indoor air quality. It measures the levels of carbon monoxide, particulates, mold, bacteria, and many other types of pollutants. Modern air filters have the ability to filter out many of these irritants, however if the filters are blocked, the air is unable to be filtered correctly.
Fortunately, indoor air pollution can be reduced by keeping your AC unit in good working order. Furthermore, you can perform the following to keep your home safe from these particles this season:
- Change your air filters. Following the replacement cycle of your air filters not only improves air flow, but also keeps your air clean as well.
- Clean out your air ducts. Clearing out the air ducts prevents dust and mold buildup in the airflow.
- Schedule an HVAC certified technician to inspect your system. When it comes to airflow and sanitation optimization, the experts know best. They will be able to look over your system to identify any issues before they become problematic.
