Summer Indoor Air Quality Tips

Summer has officially arrived! It’s the perfect time of year to lay by the pool, organize family game nights, and plan upcoming vacations. While our summer schedules are packed to the brim, it’s important to remember to maintain pristine indoor air quality in our homes this season.

During the summer, the kids are home from school, family visits from out of town, and friends frequently stop by our homes for backyard barbecues. As a result, foot traffic in our homes steadily increases, meaning indoor air quality management must advance with it. To learn more about maintaining the highest quality of air in your home, keep reading!

Squeaky Clean Floors

Did you know that your floors can have an impact on your home’s indoor air quality? Think about it: our shoes constantly track in outdoor dirt, debris, and contaminants. Failing to clean your floors of these pollutants can seriously impact the quality of your air. Vacuum and mop frequently to rid your home of these contaminants!

Humidity Management

We all know how hot and humid summers in Wisconsin can be. Unfortunately, even the slightest percentage of humidity can make a room feel suffocating and uncomfortable. Therefore, managing your home’s humidity levels is essential to creating a comfortable atmosphere for your family members and guests.

If your home has fallen victim to high humidity levels, Southport Home Services can help! Our indoor air quality specialists can quickly install a whole-house dehumidifier to help you and your guests breathe easily all summer long.

Minimize Use of Chemical Cleaners

While it may be tempting to reach for store-bought cleaning products to freshen up your home this summer, consider the product’s ingredients before spraying.

Many commonly used cleaning solutions that feature lemony-fresh scents are filled with toxic chemicals that can be detrimental to your home’s indoor air quality. Consider switching to fragrance-free and natural cleaning solutions instead.

Add Some Plants

To level up your home’s air quality, add a few plants to your space! Air-filtering plants such as English Ivy, Aloe Vera, and Spider Plants can help naturally rid your home’s air of airborne contaminants.
