NAPERVILLE, Ill., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With spring in the air and pollen counts high, Perfect Home Services, a leading Chicagoland heating, cooling and plumbing company with a 4.7-star Google rating, is giving local homeowners advice on how they can maintain great indoor air quality during National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.
"Not only do pollen counts increase during May, but people are opening their doors more, allowing air contaminants to enter the home," said Justin Carrol, president of Perfect Home Services. "Indoor air quality can be affected by any number of factors, such as pollen, mold or pet dander, but there are ways to filter some of the irritants out of your home's air circulation."
Carrol stresses regular cleaning. Most homeowners can take care of the regular sweeping and dusting, but for more in-depth spring cleaning, they may want to hire a professional. For example, homeowners may want to hire someone to clean their air ducts, removing dust and other contaminants that may have been building up during winter.
"While it may sound like common sense, cleaning is one of the best ways to improve air quality," Carrol said. "Air ducts and the areas near your pipes may have mold you're not aware of. Conducting periodic checks and regular cleaning can prevent these issues before they arise or develop into bigger problems."
Humidifiers and regularly scheduled tune-ups for heating and cooling systems can also help preserve indoor air quality. In fact, an HVAC system that isn't regularly serviced can potentially develop moisture and mold, spreading harmful spores throughout the home. Additional upgrades that can help defend against poor indoor air quality are whole-home air cleaners and ultraviolet sanitization lamps that can be installed in your HVAC unit, effectively decontaminating the air passing through.
"HVAC units are ground zero when it comes to air quality," Carrol said. "If your heating and air conditioning system is spreading contaminants throughout the air in your living spaces, then no amount of cleaning is going to matter. This is one of the many reasons we recommend homeowners get their HVACs serviced twice a year."
