Dirty Air Can Harm Your Comfort

dusty-surface

Have you ever been outside when a small dust storm hit? Or maybe you were walking around an outdoor mall when a heavy breeze full of dirt tore through the area. When you think of experiences like these, you probably don’t think “Well, it wasn’t that uncomfortable.” If anything right now you may be able to taste the dust that got into your mouth.

Your house is supposed to provide a safe haven that protects you from dirty air incidents like these. However that may not apply to your home if you have poor indoor air quality in Waco, TX. Thankfully, you aren’t without solutions to this issue.

Solving the Issue of Poor IAQ

If the dirt devils are inside your home, rather than outside, it means you have a problem with your indoor air quality (IAQ). When it comes to cleaning up the air inside your home, you are going to need more than just a dust rag in hand. This is where we can help you out.

Not only do we have the ability to diagnose where and what your biggest issues with your IAQ are, but we can also provide the solutions to handle them and restore a clean and comfortable indoor environment to your home. Here are three of the best solutions we often provide to tackle IAQ issues:

  • Air Filtration Systems: While your air conditioner and heater do have filters that come with them, these aren’t meant to help your IAQ but rather to protect the internal workings of your systems. Air filtration systems are instead installed into your ductwork where they filter out a variety of airborne contaminants (dirt, dust, fur, pollen, etc.) that might otherwise mess with your comfort.
  • Air Purifiers: Air purifiers are going to work similarly to capture or destroy airborne contaminants before they reach the interior of your home. Purifiers work a little differently than filters though. While a filter features a permeable membrane to capture particles, purifiers do their job using electricity or UV light. Electric purifiers charge particles and draw them to a magnetized plate; UV light filters destroy particles using, you guessed it, ultraviolet light! This allows purifiers to offer the extra perk of tackling things like viruses and bacteria.
  • Duct Cleaning: Last but not least, we want to ask if you know how dirty your ductwork is. If you aren’t sure or you didn’t realize that your ductwork even could get dirty, then it is likely that you would benefit from duct cleaning. This service allows a professional to get into your ducts where they will carefully remove any built-up dirt and debris that might otherwise hinder airflow and mess with your home comfort. We recommend this service once every few years for most homes.

If you have been struggling with dusty surfaces that never stay clean for more than a day, increased allergies, and even hindered airflow from your HVAC system, it may mean you need some help with your IAQ. Let our team be the one to lend a hand and find the best solution for your home.
