Spring Cleaning

Welcome to Spring! Well, the calendar states that spring break is near, although there might be some snow outside. Nonetheless, we’re excited to talk about spring cleaning. Our favorite time of the year here at Environmental Doctor in Dayton, as it’s the perfect time to freshen up the house. Plus, it’s also the perfect time to assess how well your indoor air is circulating.

Getting Rid of Stale or Stuffy Air

We have all experienced it at some point in our lives, stuffy air. Most of us usually don’t notice it until we leave the house and then re-enter hours later. You know who can notice stuffy air faster? Guests or visitors in your home. Not only is it a bit embarrassing, but this stuffy air can mean a bigger problem. Stuffy air occurs in rooms which are not well ventilated, which explains as to why an attic or basement has its own sense of smell. Stuffy air in a room or throughout the house can also mean that there’s moisture in the walls, ceilings or floors. In time, this can lead to mold and mildew if left untreated.

Indoor Air Quality

Testing out the indoor air quality of your home is a great start for that spring cleaning to-do list. There are many air pollutants which are invisible to the naked eye. Especially after a huge spring cleaning job. You just never know what has been breeding in moisture for months or years and what’s being exposed indoors. Sometimes, air quality can be improved with a scheduled air duct cleaning. Allergies worsen at this time of year, naturally. But some allergy symptoms which persist all year long can be linked to indoor allergens. If your home is overdue for duct cleaning, give us a call and one of certified technicians can inspect your home as soon as possible. Live outside of Dayton, Ohio?
