We’re all very focused on what we eat, but what about the air we breathe? As pollen counts spike this month, many allergy sufferers will retreat to the “comfort” of their homes to escape. Did you know that the air inside your home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside? Rest assured, there are many steps you can take to improve the quality of your indoor air.
Let’s start with the basics:
- Maintain Your HVAC System. These are the systems that circulate the air throughout your home. Dirty and clogged filters equal dirty air. Simple as that.

- Control Humidity Levels – does your home smell musty? Do you suspect mold? Proper humidity levels are extremely important. Excess humidity promotes the spread of mold, mildew, bacteria and more.
