Maintaining or improving air quality is crucial to keeping indoor environments safe. According to environmental experts, air pollutant levels indoors could be as much as 100 times higher as compared to outdoors. And since we spend so much more time indoors, it's crucial to ensure the cleanliness of the air we breathe.

To help you improve indoor air quality, we've listed some easy tips you can start following today.

Invest in an air purifier

One way to ensure the quality of indoor air is to use an air purifier. Air purifiers work by drawing air through one or more filters and removing harmful contaminants and pollutants from the air. The purifier then re-circulates the clean air back into the room.

To enjoy the benefit of fresh, clean air, though, it’s crucial to invest in high-quality air purifiers. Fortunately, Carrier Philippines offers various air purifiers to meet every space’s needs.

For instance, the Carrier Tabletop Air Purifier is a great choice for smaller rooms, like bedrooms and bathrooms. This compact air purifier is equipped with a HEPA H11 filter that traps airborne allergens, viruses, and bacteria so you can breathe easier and avoid allergies. It also has a built-in aromatherapy diffuser, so you can enjoy clean, relaxing indoor air in your favorite scent.

For larger rooms, you can go with the Carrier Floor Standing Air Purifier. This Carrier air purifier comes with advanced cleaning technology, including UV-C Light Technology and a Photocatalytic Filter, to remove bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens from indoor air. The air purifier’s UV Lamp also works in a secure enclosure, so you can further ensure the safety of your loved ones. Through a 3-stage filtration system, including a HEPA filter and an activated carbon filter, this air purifier provides air free of allergens and unpleasant odors.

If you’re looking for air purifiers with enough power for indoor public spaces, look no further than the Carrier OptiClean and Carrier UltraClean air purifiers. The Carrier OptiClean Air Scrubber comes with 99.97% efficient HEPA filtration that can trap airborne particles and pathogens as small as 0.3 microns.

Meanwhile, the Carrier UltraClean Air Purifier helps deodorize and keep indoor air clean through 3-stage dual filters and advanced UVC Light Technology. This UVC light technology kills germs, viruses, and bacteria to ensure indoor air quality.

Remove sources of pollutants

Your home may have more pollutants than you think. In some cases, removing these pollutants means simply avoiding smoking at home or opting for organic, non-toxic cleaning products.

You may also want to rethink buying furniture made from composite wood, since these furniture may use glue that contains formaldehyde. Over time, the chemical could seep into indoor air and have significant effects on your health.

Bring fresh air into your home

Another way to get air circulating in your space is to open the windows and bring in fresh air. It’s recommended to open the windows for 15 to 20 minutes daily so your space can “breathe”, so to speak. You can do this in the early morning or in the evening when the weather is cooler.

You can also improve ventilation by running exhaust fans in humid spaces like the bathroom or the kitchen. These fans can help remove stale air from the space and replace it with fresh air.

Fill the space with plants

Plants not only serve as interesting decor for any space, but they can also help in filtering pollutants from indoor air. These plants can also help clean air from chemicals found in cleaning products, furniture, and even carpets.

Snake plants, for instance, are great at cleansing indoor air of toxins. Boston ferns are another great choice for indoor decor. These plants can rid the air of chemicals like xylene and toluene, which can cause serious health risks.

Keep your air conditioners clean

Since air conditioners bring air into your space, it’s a good idea to keep these units as clean as possible. Make sure to clean your aircon’s filters at least once a month. You can use some warm water, soap, and a soft brush to remove any dust, dirt, or debris that has accumulated on the filter.

We also recommend setting a schedule for professional AC maintenance. Get your aircon professionally cleaned at least every 6 months to make sure that all components are free from dust and debris that could compromise indoor air quality.

The Importance of Maintaining Indoor Air Quality

According to environmental health researchers, exposure to pollution in indoor air can cause respiratory issues, cognitive deficits, and heart disease, among other health problems. Poor-quality indoor air can also affect productivity. Given these effects, it’s crucial that you maintain good indoor air quality at all times.
