Top Ways to Turn Your House Into a Healthy Home

People frequently expose themselves to harmful contaminants in the comfort of their own homes without knowing it. From harmful cleaning chemicals to dirty ductwork, there are many ways contaminants make their way into your Roseville, California, house. Fortunately, there are just as many ways to turn your house into a healthy home. Creating a healthy home is easier than most think. Here are the top ways to do so:

Reduce Your Exposure to Pollen

When it’s hay fever season, brush off your outerwear before entering the home. If you have indoor pets, brush their hair at least once a week to keep pet dander from aggravating allergy and asthma symptoms. It’s also during this part of the year that you should avoid hanging laundry on a clothesline outside. Otherwise, pollen will stick to the clothes as they’re drying. When you bring them in, you’re inviting pollen into your home.

Install an Air Purification System

Air purification systems can be installed directly to your HVAC system, or you can use portable models. The Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner removes up to 99.98 percent of pollutants from your filtered indoor air. It has a low operating cost and easy-to-view cleaning indicators on the outside of the unit. You simply vacuum and rinse the unit’s filters once every three to nine months. The unit’s ability to improve indoor air quality is significantly enhanced when you pair it with regular ductwork cleaning

Use Door Mats and Shoe Baskets

A double length, washable welcome mat can keep up to 80 percent of dirt and other allergens out of your home. Place one of these mats at all entrances to the home, and make sure to wipe your feet before coming inside. Place a shoe basket right inside these doorways, and ask everyone to place their shoes in them so they don’t track dirt, pollen and bacteria throughout the house. As a result, you’ll avoid a filthier home.

Contact Jaguar Heating & Air at 916-256-4447 to schedule a duct cleaning session. We can also perform an assessment to determine the best type of air purification system to install in your home.
