    Indoor air quality (IAQ) can be negatively impacted by everything from outdoor pollution seeping into your home, to the chemicals found in furnishings and household cleaning products. Factors in things like pet dander, bacteria, smoke and carbon monoxide from cooking, and the problem only gets worse.

    If you aren’t doing anything to improve your home’s indoor air quality, then you and your loved ones are already at a disadvantage as poor IAQ is linked to a slew of health concerns. Fortunately, there are lots of things you can do to start improving the quality of the air inside your home. Here are four quick tips that will boost your home’s IAQ in no time.

    1. Use a Vacuum With a HEPA Filter

    If you use a vacuum to clean your carpet and floors, using a HEPA filter can help boost your home’s IAQ. This special type of filter is designed to remove more IAQ-hindering particles from the floor surfaces through its advanced filtration capabilities. Try vacuuming with a HEPA filter two to three times per week for the best results.

    2. Mop Your Floors

    While vacuuming is a great way to remove some particulates, mopping the floors is also a smart idea. Some chemicals in cleaners can have a negative impact on indoor air quality, so consider mopping with water and all-natural cleaners. Mopping can capture certain allergens that vacuuming can’t.

    3. Change Your Air Filter

    Changing the air filter within your HVAC system is one of the easiest ways you can improve your home’s IAQ. The air filter works to capture a large number of particles and pollutants that circulate throughout the air in your home. However, the air filter must be clean in order to work as efficiently as possible. Changing the air filter regularly will yield the best results.

    4. Have Your HVAC System Professionally Maintained

    A final step that you can take to improve indoor air quality is to service your HVAC system. With regular annual maintenance performed by a professional, the components in your system will be thoroughly inspected and cleaned, which will remove mold, bacteria and other elements that may be circulating throughout the air in your home. You can also have your air ducts professionally cleaned for even better results.
