My indoor air quality needs help

While it’s pressing to seal up the home against the cold during the Wintertide weeks, the stale indoor environment causes some troubles with my allergies.

The dry air and lack of fresh air coming in increases the amount of dust mites, pet dander, mildew spores plus VOCs circulating through the house.

From late fall, throughout the winter plus during most of Spring, the outdoor temperature is too freezing to open the windows. Most of the contaminants are odorless plus impossible to see. The only way I realize there are issues is because of the systems they trigger. I might have trouble sleeping, feel sleepy and sluggish and suffer from sneezing, coughing, headaches, sore throat plus itchy eyes. I’ve attempted to fix indoor air pollen levels by officially replacing air filters, scheduling professional heating/cooling maintenance plus keeping a wash house. I make sure to vacuum the rugs once or twice a month with a vacuum cleaner outfitted with a HEPA filter. I have detached most of the rugs in the home plus installed ceramic tile that is easier to keep clean. I officially launder bedding and drapes in hot water. I’ve bought covers that are supposed to protect against dust mites for all pillows, mattresses and box Springs. I am careful not to have clutter on any of my shelves or countertops that might keep dust; Every few years, I schedule duct cleaning. A licensed Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C professional uses what looks prefer a gigantic vacuum cleaner hose plus brush to detach the buildup of pollutants inside the pipes. I’ve just recently added an ionic air purification system that works to capture airborne irritants, kill pathogens and detach odors.
