During the holiday season, many people welcome visitors into their homes for parties and extended stays. If you’re planning to host loved ones at your Lady Lake, Florida, home, you may need to do a quick check of the indoor air quality. Poor IAQ can impact your visitors’ health, causing a variety of allergy symptoms. Prepare now for a healthy, happy visit together.
How to Know If Your IAQ is a Problem
You may have poor indoor air quality and not even realize it. The quality of the air you breathe in your home could be causing health symptoms that you blame on other issues, such as coming down with a cold or allergies. However, if you notice that your symptoms seem to disappear when you leave the house or they’re worse when you wake up in the morning, the IAQ could be to blame.
Keep Your Home Clean
As you prepare for holiday visitors, you’ll probably do some cleaning. Make sure to clean the carpeted floors with a vacuum that contains a HEPA-rated filter to eliminate small particles from the fibers. You can also wash bedding in hot water to kill dust mites and other allergy-causing contaminants. Along with the cleaning you do, be sure to schedule a professional duct cleaning to remove allergens and contaminants.
Purify the Air
If you’re hosting guests who suffer from more severe allergies, consider adding a purification system to your home’s cooling and heating system. This system can make a big difference in the quality of the air you breathe, ensuring that your visitors won’t suffer from health issues like congestion, eye irritation, sore throat, breathing problems, or coughing.
