When you’re spring cleaning, you naturally stir a lot of dust into the air. Even opening windows doesn’t help clear the air due to high pollen count, which is supposed to be worse this year. Most of us are still spending more time indoors, so it’s important to know how to improve indoor air quality while tackling our normal spring cleaning.

Finding ways to be more comfortable indoors is key. Here’s three ways to increase your comfort and improve your wellbeing.

Spring Cleaning Windows

Let’s start with windows, the gatekeeper to fresh air, but also pollen. At Indow, we’re a little obsessed with windows, and even then, we only recommend cleaning them twice a year. We’ve found that window cleaning, along with other house tidying, can really help with residential indoor air quality.

Our customers have found some pretty disgusting things between their Indow inserts and windows, leading us to believe that our inserts keep a lot of the worst air pollution offenders out. Our post on how to improve indoor air quality walks through indoor air quality solutions and how they might work for you. Sometimes simply getting an air purifier can help take control of indoor air pollution.

 
 

Indoor Air Quality

Before you decide to get any equipment, learn how to test air quality in your home. We met with expert Kelson Redding to discuss indoor air quality, why it’s important, and how it works with our inserts. His recommendations depend on your home situation. For example, a home with a smoker, many pets, or someone with severe allergies is more likely to need assistance. 

Find out how to perform your own indoor air quality test.

Being able to breathe easy in your own home is no small matter. Kelson works in both residential and commercial spaces. If we are using our homes for both work and leisure, shouldn’t we be giving them the same amount of attention that our workplaces once did?
