Many of our customers with allergies and asthma come to us for advice on fixing their homes’ air quality. Often they are frustrated because they have followed all the advice from websites like WebMD on how to make their indoor air as healthy as possible. Even after making significant lifestyle changes, they still feel as if the air they breathe is not as clean as it should be.


Most of these medical websites offer the following advice:


  1. Use a high-quality vacuum several times a week.

One of the most obvious ways of improving your home’s air quality is to keep it clean. Use a vacuum with a well-maintained HEPA filter at least twice a week. Don’t forget to vacuum your upholstery as well as your floors.


  1. Avoid harsh chemicals when cleaning.

Use plain water or a microfiber cloth to gather up any dust that is left behind after vacuuming.


  1. Follow the rules for a healthy home.

Make your home a smoke-free and shoe-free zone. If you don’t want to ask your visitors to remove their shoes, place an extra-large mat at the door, and clean it often.


  1. Use natural air fresheners.

Instead of using aerosol sprays, candles, or plug-in air fresheners that may emit volatile organic compounds, use baking soda, lemons, and live plants to improve the smell of your home naturally.


  1. Pay attention to your home’s humidity level.

Is your home too humid? Reduce the likelihood of mold by controlling your home’s humidity level. Use exhaust fans when showering and take care of any plumbing leaks immediately.

We recommend the Air Scrubber by Aerus. It attaches directly to your HVAC system ductwork and will remove air pollution, volatile organic compounds, dust, and other contaminants in your home.

One of the most significant benefits of this system is that it will help remove pet dander. After all, even though we couldn’t live without our beloved four-legged friends, we know how much their fur and dander affects the air quality of our homes.


Besides having a cleaner home, there are many other benefits of installing an Air Scrubber By Aerus.
