Your home should be a sanctuary, a place where you feel safe and comfortable. But have you ever considered what you might be breathing in within the confines of your walls? Many homeowners have growing concerns about the quality of the air inside their homes. At Davis Ford, we’re dedicated to addressing those fears head-on and providing solutions.

10 Common Concerns with Solutions

1. Battling Allergens: Beyond the Common Sneeze

Allergens like pollen, pet dander, and dust mites might be minute, but their effects on our respiratory system are significant. Prolonged exposure can lead to a range of allergic reactions.

How to Address It: Regular cleaning, including vacuuming and dusting, can help reduce the presence of allergens. Also, ensure your HVAC system has a high-quality filter and that it’s changed regularly.

2. Mold and Mildew: The Silent Invaders

Mold and mildew thrive in damp, humid conditions, leading to potential health issues and damaging your home’s interior.

How to Address It: Ensure proper ventilation, especially in areas like bathrooms and kitchens. Dehumidifiers can also help maintain optimal humidity levels.

3. Reducing Household Pollutants

From cooking fumes to cleaning chemicals, our homes can sometimes harbor harmful pollutants that we introduce.

How to Address It: Opt for natural cleaning products and ensure your home is well-ventilated, especially when using potent chemicals or cooking.

4. VOCs: Invisible Threats in Your Home

Many household items release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can have adverse health effects.

How to Address It: Choose low-VOC paints and limit the use of aerosol sprays. Ensure rooms are ventilated during and after painting or other activities that increase VOC levels.

5. The Radon Reality

This radioactive gas is naturally occurring but can pose significant health risks if it accumulates in your home.

How to Address It: Consider having your home tested for radon, especially if you live in an area known for higher radon levels.  Radon tests are now required when selling a home but if you have been in your home for a long period of time, you may want to consider having it retested.

6. Breathing Easier with Proper Ventilation

Without good ventilation, indoor air can become stale, trapping pollutants inside.

How to Address It: Regularly open windows and doors to allow fresh air in. Consider exhaust fans for areas like the kitchen and bathroom. After the summer we just had, we know this seems counterintuitive, but this summer was the exception to the rule.  A little fresh air is good for us.

7. Keeping Pests and Microbes at Bay

Tiny intruders can have a big impact on your air quality.

How to Address It: Regular cleaning and maintenance can deter pests. Also, consider UV light systems that can kill airborne bacteria and viruses.

8. Balancing Humidity Levels for Comfort and Health

Too much or too little humidity can affect both your home and your health.

How to Address It: Use humidifiers or dehumidifiers as needed to maintain optimal levels. Ask us about our whole house humidity control system.

9. Guarding Against Outdoor Pollutants

Even if you live in a “clean” area, outdoor pollutants can still make their way inside.Indoo

How to Address It: Keep windows and doors closed during high pollution days. Davis Ford works with families to install whole-house air purifiers and regularly change HVAC filters.

10. Your HVAC System: The Heart of Home Air Quality

A well-functioning HVAC system plays a pivotal role in maintaining good indoor air quality.

How to Address It: Schedule regular maintenance checks for your HVAC system. Ensure that technicians, like those at Davis Ford Heating & Air Conditioning, have a reputation for meticulous care and attention to detail in their work.
