Paradise Valley, Arizona (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Frequent colds, allergies, or asthma can all be caused by poor indoor air quality and high pollution inside the home. With summer heat approaching, Arizonans are sure to spend up to 90% of their time indoors, according to AAA Cooling Specialists, an HVAC company providing AC repair in Paradise Valley AZ. With so much reliance on regulated indoor temperatures to stay comfortable, AAA Cooling Specialists also informs indoor air can be cleaned with a few household tasks. AAA Cooling Specialists offers the following tips to Paradise Valley homeowners to consider while conquering spring cleaning duties.
Clean with microfibers
Towels and dusters do their job to attract dust, but by cleaning with microfibers, the dust and pollutants cling to the dusters instead of redistribute through the air. Properly clean or discard microfiber products according to the manufacturer’s suggestions.
Vacuum floors and clean blinds more frequently
With more time spent indoors, the need to clean high traffic areas becomes more important. The air conditioner can circulate cleaner air if the dust and pollutants are kept to a minimum.
Change air filters once a month
Even if the air conditioner hasn’t been turned on yet, a new filter will ensure the cleanest air possible is flowing through all vents and ducts. Call a professional if a leak in the duct system is suspected as this could lead to large amounts of dust coming from the attic.
Bathe and brush animals outside
Most homeowners are committed to keeping windows and doors closed during the summer to save money on energy bills, but trapping pet dander indoors will give it no place to go. Groom animals outdoors in the early morning or evening and only let pets inside once their excess fur has been brushed off as much as possible.
Wash linens every 10 days
Allergens and dust mites thrive in hot, humid places such as mattresses and towels. Use a mattress pad as protection and wash all linens on the hottest setting available.
