Here are a few other tips that you can try today.
- Block pollen and trap particulates by keeping the windows closed and placing doormats on both sides of the threshold.
- To reduce dust buildup, clean from top to bottom, and pay special attention when vacuuming along the baseboard.
- Replace your HVAC air filter every 30 to 90 days. Change the filter more frequently during the height of the heating and cooling seasons or if your family has pets.
- Excess moisture contributes to organic growth, dust mites, and a number of other air quality concerns. Manage humidity by fixing leaks promptly and using exhaust fans when cooking or bathing.
