7 Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

By The Air Purifier

Allergens & Germs in the air like Bacteria, Dust Mite Feces, Gaseous Pollutants, Mold Spores, Pet Dander, Pollen, Smoke & Viruses are what causes Allergies, Asthma, Cold & Flu's, Sinus Infections and Respiratory Illnesses.

Learn how to Improve Indoor Air Quality with good Air FiltrationHumidity Control and Germ Elimination. 7 machines to reduce allergens in your home.

1. Air Purifiers 

For Air Filtration and Germ Elimination. For people looking to improve the quality of the air within their home, using a HEPA Air Purifier is an excellent option. After all, dirty air can cause health issues for you, especially if you already have asthma or allergies. HEPA air purifiers eliminate indoor air irritants, creating cleaner, fresher air for you to breathe. 


There are several Home Air Filter technologies on the market today and choosing the right one(s) is a matter of understanding how each type works and what contaminants each one can remove.

2. Dehumidifiers

For Humidity Control. Mold (Fungus) and Bacteria will start growing at humidity levels above 50%. To avoid too much humidity and too much dryness, keep your home humidity levels between 35% and 50%. If the humidity level is too high, invest in a dehumidifier to reduce the moisture level.

When home humidity levels climb too high and the temperature is too warm, it creates an ideal breeding ground for dust mites. These tiny little creatures cause annoying symptoms in people who are allergic to them including watery eyes, sneezing, a runny nose, itching, and worsening of asthma symptoms.

Mold also grows and thrives in humid conditions. Some people are highly allergic to mold, and its presence can trigger allergy symptoms and make asthma symptoms worse. Mold can grow almost anywhere in a home when the humidity level rises above 50% - especially in parts of the house where ventilation is poor.


3. HVAC 

For Air Filtration and Germ Elimination. The air filter in your furnace is often overlooked, but its contribution to your indoor air quality and the efficiency of your HVAC system can’t be overstated.

Your air filter prevents the buildup of dust and other particles on your furnace’s fan and heat exchanger, which can significantly reduce its efficiency by making it work harder to keep your home warm.


In addition to protecting your furnace and improving its efficiency, your air filter also helps improve your indoor air quality. Particles in the typical home include dust, dust mites, pollen, mold, animal dander and bacteria. Your furnace filter traps many of these particles to help you breathe easier and prevent allergy and asthma attacks.

4. Humidifiers  

For Humidity Control. It is cold out, possibly below freezing, and the dryness of the winter air, along with the additional dryness caused by forced air heating turned up high, can be a health risk, as well as plain old irritating. Problems with dry air are Dry Skin, Congestion, and the increased likelihood of catching a Cold or Flu because Viruses love dry air.

Humidity describes the amount of water vapor in the air, and this is where a humidifier comes in. Humidifiers increase humidity by releasing water vapor into a room through a slow filtering device and a fan. The ideal humidity level is between 25 and 50 percent and many humidifiers have devices called humidistats to monitor this level.


5. Air Conditioners (Portable or Whole House)  

For Humidity and Heat Control. Why would an air conditioner be a good machine for cleaning the air? Most Air Conditioners will lower air temperature and take water (humidity) out of the air.

If your humidity rises above the 50% level mold can start growing, dust mites are flourishing plus it’s uncomfortable to live in. Plus, if your temperature at home rises above the 72 F / 22 C level it can affect your sleeping and energy levels.


6. Steam Cleaners

For Germ Elimination. If you are allergic to dust mites and mold, you know that keeping your home clean is very important to your health. Dust mites live in carpetsmattressesfurniture, and other items, even clothing. The high heat of Vapor Steam cleaning destroys dust mites immediately. 

These machines can kill Germs, Bacteria & Viruses like salmonella, staph and e-coli without using any chemicals, just steam from boiling water. In order to kill these germs, you need water heated to 175º F, Vapor Steam Cleaners can heat water up to 240º F - 260º F

Steam cleaning has many advantages over using chemical solutions when it comes to cleaning your carpet. Surface cleaners leave potentially toxic residue in your carpets, and don't provide the deep-down clean that a proper Vapor Steam Cleaning can offer. 


7. Carpet Cleaners

For Germ Elimination. Steam cleaning has many advantages over using chemical solutions when it comes to cleaning your carpet. Surface cleaners leave potentially toxic residue in your carpets, and don't provide the deep-down clean that a proper steam cleaning can offer. 

While chemical solutions are generally effective in removing most surface stains, steam cleaning is the only method known to get deep down in your carpet to remove almost all traces of dirt and bacteria. This is because steam cleaning methods penetrate your carpet to its deepest layer.



It might take one or more of these machines and methods to improve indoor air quality in your home. Also, living in areas with High humidity and Air Pollution will make improving air quality in your home just a little harder.
