The cold weather is finally gone, and spring has arrived in Shreveport, Louisiana. It’s time to breathe in fresh air and enjoy the warmer temperatures. This is also the time of year to do a thorough cleaning of your home. When you do, make sure to follow these spring cleaning tips to improve your indoor air quality.
Clean Your Bedding
The sheets are washed once a week, but what about your pillows and comforter? If you can’t remember the last time they were cleaned, now is the time. Dust mites can thrive in bedding, causing your allergies to act up. Check the tags to determine if your bedding is machine washable or dry clean only.
Let the Fresh Air Inside
For those who aren’t prone to allergies and the sneezing and sniffling that comes with spring weather, throw open your windows to let the stuffy, stale winter air out and the fresh spring air in. Allergy sufferers should keep their windows closed, but you can always add an air cleaner to take out the stale feel and clean your indoor air.
Check and Change Your Filters
Your HVAC filter should be checked every month and changed once a month or at least every three months. The more dirt and dust caught by the filter, the harder your system has to work. Dirty filters are less effective, and you and your family will breathe dirtier air as a result.
Schedule Air Duct Cleaning
Duct cleaning doesn’t have to be done very often, but if you’ve never had it done in your home, spring is the perfect time. During a professional duct cleaning, we will inspect your ductwork and clean out dirt, dust, pollutants, allergens, and anything else that’s been growing and accumulating. As a result, your air will be cleaner and better for you.
As you get ready to celebrate the spring weather and begin cleaning up, think about your indoor air quality. Spring is the best time for an energy maintenance audit.
