If someone in your Jefferson, Louisiana, home lives with allergies or asthma, you know how important it is to keep the air clean and free of dust and irritants. However, even with vigilance and determination, you may miss some of the places where dirt hides. Check out these three potential havens for dust in your home.
Hiding Out With the Holiday Decorations
Everyone gets excited when it’s time to display the Halloween decorations or the Christmas tree ornaments. But the ornaments may be covered with a year’s worth of dust. Before you introduce that much dust into the air, which can irritate your family’s airways, be sure you have a remedy in place.
Blending in With the Area Rugs
You may think getting rid of the carpet in favor of area rugs is a good way to improve the air quality in your home. However, your area rug may trap more irritants than you suspect. While washing and vacuuming regularly can help, the best way to fight this battle is with a solution that works round the clock to draw the impurities out of the air.
Dust in Your Speakers
The speakers for your surround sound system or your home stereo are favorite hiding places for dust. Rarely do homeowners think about cleaning out the speakers, especially if they’re tucked away out of sight in a corner or recessed into the wall. When you dust them, often the particles end up circulating through the air in your home, so you need more than a temporary solution.
While it can feel like a losing battle against the dust in your home, take heart because solutions are available. Bryans United Air Conditioning can help with indoor air quality tools that are installed inside your HVAC system for maximum effect. These tools have power far beyond anything you can buy in stores.
