Spring Clean Your Indoor Air Quality

Use an Air Filter to Clean Indoor Air Year-round

With trees and flowers blooming, we all know that pollen follows. Improve your indoor air quality this spring with an air purifier. It may not be a traditional item on your spring cleaning checklist, but adding a high-quality air purifier to your home will remove odors from pets, mildew, and smoke. Along with these, it also helps remove a wide range of volatile organic chemicals including benzene and formaldehyde, typically found in building materials and furnishings. Ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers, and good for everyone, an air purifier is a great option to improve your home’s indoor air quality during any season. This is a spring cleaning hack that goes the distance because it maintains your home’s air quality for years to come! Add an air filter to your spring cleaning list and reap the benefits all year long.

Replace Your Air Conditioner Filters this Spring

Another way to keep your air quality top-notch is by routinely replacing your air conditioning filters. Not only does it improve the quality of the air circulating in your home, but it also supports your HVAC systems. Taking good care of your air conditioning system with an air filter replacement makes it last longer, which is an obvious win, because no one wants to replace their HVAC sooner than necessary!

Our AIRx air filters are available in all of the traditional sizes, and there are several types of air filters to meet your needs.

Have health concerns that require intense filtration and a 20x25x1 air filter size? No problem. Looking for a 16x20x1 air filter size but a washable filter? We got you covered.

Deal with the Dust

It is always astonishing how much dust gathers underneath furniture and along baseboards, especially through the winter season. Spring is the perfect time to vacuum underneath and behind your furniture to reduce the overall dust level in your house. For an added level of cleaning, replace your vacuum cleaner filter beforehand. With a fresh filter in your vacuum, you’ll keep your vacuum cleaner in top condition with maximum efficiency filtering pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and more.

Symptoms such as excessive sneezing, redness and irritation in your eyes, a sore or irritated throat, and a runny nose could all signal bad air quality. This could mean the air has pollutants that are irritating your upper respiratory system.

How long does it take to purify a room?
