How To Improve Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

Gutters, shingles, pipes, and appliances — it’s easy to remember these things need fixing. It’s the unseen parts of your home that are tough to take care of. Indoor air quality, however, is an often forgotten but incredibly important facet of a home’s health.


Keeping your house’s air quality at a high level can prevent sickness and breathing problems for your family. Here are some of the most effective ways to ensure your home maintains a standard of air quality that makes you proud.


Run Tests Yourself

The biggest threats to your home’s indoor air quality are through pollutants, irritants, and radon, a dangerous chemical often found in a building’s foundation.


Indoor air quality monitors and home radon tests can help homeowners detect what exactly is posing a problem for your specific home.


Ventilate Properly

If your home isn’t properly ventilated, stale air can allow pollutants and irritants to linger around your house.


Areas such as your attic, crawl space, and basement are particularly susceptible to poor ventilation, so check out ventilation systems specific to each location. These products make sure the air circulation in your dustiest rooms stays fresh and safe.


Get A Home Air Purification System

Address the problems directly by installing an in-home antidote. Probiotic-enhanced air purification systems can bring probiotics into your home’s air to fight pollutants. Companies like GreenStream Tech help push the healthy home opportunities available to homeowners.


The system replenishes the air you breathe by releasing billions of probiotics into the air, allowing the good bacteria to consume organic irritants like pollen, dust mite waste, and pet dander.
