What if your work or residential space is infested with contaminants and you don’t know? The chances are high because it is estimated that around 50 million people in the US have some form of nasal allergies and exposure to indoor allergens such as dust mites. You and your family might be already paying heavy medical bills because of this cluelessly! The most common reasons why infectious dust and debris invade our interiors are:-
- Malfunctioning ventilation system
- Polluted outer environment
- Combustion appliances
- Inadequate cleaning maintenance
If you want to improve air quality, installing an air purifier is not going to work alone. On the basis of practical experiences shared by our air quality maintenance experts, some useful tips to get rid of dust are here for you.
Impactful Ways to Get Rid of Indoor Dust
- Specify areas for doormats
Remember that the doormats are not just decorative accessories to place outside the main gate with a welcome sign. They need to be placed in every area where foot traffic or the chances of spreading contaminants are high, i.e. outside the bathroom and kitchen. Invest in good quality doormats and regularly clean them; half of the dust and debris will automatically come under control. For more optimum cleanness results, you need some technological advancements listed below.
- Air Filtrations System Installation
Right now, an air purifier is a conventionally popular interior quality maintenance accessory because it actually works. But the primary concern is which kind of air purification system is ideal for your infrastructure. When buying air filtration systems, check their capacity of area coverage and compare it with the interior space. In addition, you also have to check some advanced features i.e.
- HEPA Filters
- Carbon Filters
- Ionization system
- UV-C lights
- Air quality sensors
- Multiple filters
For the convenience of usage, options like wi-fi connectivity and smart speaker integration are also available.
- Air Duct Cleaning
A malfunctioning air duct system in your home or commercial building can be the biggest contributor to dust accumulation. Air duct cleaning is the process of removing dirt, dust, and other debris from the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The air ducts are the pathways through which air is circulated throughout a building. Over time, these ducts can become clogged with contaminants, which can negatively impact indoor air quality, cause equipment to work less efficiently and contribute to higher energy costs.
- HRV and ERV Systems Cleaning
HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation) and ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilation) systems are types of mechanical ventilation systems that are used to improve indoor air quality by bringing in fresh outdoor air and expelling stale indoor air. Cleaning of these systems generally involves removing dirt, dust, and other debris from the various components, such as the filters, heat exchangers, and ductwork. In order to ensure that the system is operating efficiently and effectively, we have customized HVAC services for both residential and commercial infrastructures.
- Humidifier and dehumidifier installation
Install whole house humidifiers to avoid static charge attracting dust in dry climatic conditions. Invest in whole-house dehumidifiers if you live in a coastal or tropical region. A quality device will neutralize moisture and its consequences like pests’ infestations, mold and foul smell.
- Ensure Proper Manual Interiors Cleaning
Manual Indoor air quality solutions are time-consuming because they involve multiple tasks requiring a professional approach. Apart from regular dusting and mopping, take care of regular carpet cleaning and ensure that your blinds and upholstery are also getting equal attention. Invest in a powerful vacuum with multipurpose nozzles and a large collection chamber.
Dust that causes serious allergic reactions usually remains invisible from plain sight, so it is difficult to identify the severity until things worsen from infrastructural value and health aspects. This is why qualified Custom Climate HVAC contractors are available to assist with maintenance as well as new systems installation.
