Filters for Vacuum Cleaners
It’s important to make sure you have a high-quality filter in your vacuum. You should also change it regularly to make sure it’s not getting clogged and that particles aren’t being blown back into the air. Try to get a filter that filters out particles as small as one micron. The smaller the particles are that it can filter, the better it will be for air quality.
You could get a professional HVAC contractor to install a high-performing air cleaner in your home. Make sure that it has a low-pressure drop, or it may not work as effectively as you want. For example, Trane’s Fresh Effects Air Cleaner has one of the lowest pressure drops on the market and filters out contaminants as small as 1/10 micron.
Excessive humidity in your home can create an environment for biological growth. This growth can release spores in the air which you then inhale. This can cause allergies or other illnesses. Test the humidity level in your home and make sure it’s between 30% and 50%. If not, you may need a dehumidifier.
