Spring is just right around the corner but it feels like spring already. The great thing about spring is the rain and it will rain the weekend. Not only will the rain help the drought in California but clean out the air from all the smog and the contaminants floating in the air. The purpose of spring cleaning is to revamp and de clutter things that we don’t need in our home. We can do the same, for our indoor air.Spring cleaning and doing regular maintenance in our heating and cooling systems can help our indoor air quality be better for our health and comfort. One of the things that one can do to get better indoor air quality is to get those filters clean. Changing and cleaning the air filter each month can save up your electricity bill and have great air flow through out the space. Commercial properties also need this spring cleaning and the air filters can also help trap bad indoor pollutants. Some examples of several pollutants that can both be found in homes and in commercial properties are:
- Mold spores/mildew
- Pet dander/odor
Another list on the spring cleaning to have better air quality in your environment is have the coil in your AC clean. You might have not thought about cleaning this part of your system but it is important to have the coil clean so that your system wont have to run that long and last longer. In addition, it is important to clean the coils so that your bill wont increase. These are two ways that you may start with your spring cleaning to improve the indoor air.
