Aire Serv shares tips to reduce indoor allergens

Aire Serv, a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and indoor air quality (IAQ) systems repair franchise system, has shared tips for reducing allergens inside homes.

With spring just around the corner, these helpful pointers will help improve IAQ:

  • Encase pillows, box springs and mattresses in dust-mite-proof covers and wash bed sheets weekly.
  • Deep clean all carpets and vacuum weekly.
  • Clean the most-used furniture (g. couch) often.
  • Remove unnecessary clutter that has collected dust by putting it in storage.
  • Open windows to allow cross-ventilation because IAQ is usually worse indoors and a breeze will help purify it.
  • Potted plants can grow mould, so cover dirt with aquarium gravel to prevent it.
  • Use vented exhaust fans to remove cooking fumes and avoid moisture buildup when cooking.
  • Maintain an indoor temperature of 20 to 22 C because humidity attracts dust mites and mould.
  • Replace air filters monthly.
