Spring is right around the corner, which means spring cleaning is about to occur in many households. But, did you know spring cleaning is much more than organizing? To learn more, take a look at these IAQ spring cleaning tips!
A deep spring clean done well can do wonders for your indoor air. From properly removing dust and particles from your living spaces to maintaining your HVAC system, your indoor air will be in tip-top shape for the warm seasons ahead! To ensure your indoor air quality improves this spring season, consider these three spring cleaning tips.
- Dust And Vacuum
Your HVAC system can collect dust and debris rather quickly. Not only does dusting and vacuuming help to reduce dust and particles in your home, but it also increases the efficiency of your HVAC system. In turn, this will help to improve your indoor air quality, allowing you to have cleaner air in your home.
- Ventilate While Cleaning
Spring cleaning likely includes a literal deep home clean. That means many cleaning products filled with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) will be used. When cleaning a specific area, it can be helpful to ventilate the space. Try to ventilate the room naturally by opening windows and doors.
- Clean Your A/C Unit
It’s essential to clean your outdoor unit before relying on A/C daily. Mainly because it has likely been dormant for months. Make sure to clean the outdoor unit of any leaves or debris. Also, consider regular preventative HVAC maintenance, which helps to prolong your HVAC system.
