Tips to Improve your indoor air quality. Really? Trust us, the quality of your indoor air is as important as the quality of the air outside your home.

Bottom line we have seen it all from a dirty filthy unkempt home into homes that you can eat off the floors their so sparkling clean!
Let’s first look at the symptoms that are brought by BAD IAQ? (Indoor Air Quality) Dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin, not to mention the following:
People generally notice their symptoms after several hours at work and feel better after they have left the building or when they have been away from the building for a weekend or a vacation.
Many of these symptoms may also be caused by other health conditions including common colds or the flu, and are not necessarily due to poor IAQ. This fact can make identifying and resolving IAQ problems more difficult.
Performing an indoor air test and comparing it to the outside is a great start to verifying the overall condition and getting a baseline of mold spore count VS outside. Performing an air test gives you a better piece of mind and provides a better understanding of what IAQ protocol your home really needs.
These mold air testing in Los Angeles usually cost somewhere between $200 and $600.
When it comes to improving your indoor air quality, we have found these to be the BEST quick tips to making a huge difference.
Air filters to your furnace MUST regularly be replaced, along with HEPA vaccuum the inside return air because a lot of DUST collects in these areas.
We find Air duct cleaning and sanitizing to be a huge help in regenerating indoor air, as you can see in the video that we pulled out a dead rat that might have been there for a long time.
One of the places we have found that most people overlook is under the refrigerator where mounds of dust and sometimes a high allergy mold called Aspergillus Penicillium can collect.
The best way to clean is using a Hepa vacuum to extract the large and small dust particulates under your refer.
Then you can use an air hose and blow out the remaining dust that your HEPA vacuum could not reach. Once this is completed, we love to perform fogging using an anti-microbial mist; this will attack bacteria, mold and sanitize the under structure of your refer.
Once you’ve completed this, you should check again in 6 months to gauge how much dust is collecting. This will help you set up the proper time frame to maintain.
A great way to finish up your indoor air cleaning is to go through your entire home with a HEPA VACUUM since your typical vacuum doesn’t pick up the small particles. Once this step has been completed, you can perform whole house fogging with an anti-microbial spray.
Choose a NON-TOXIC anti-microbial that can be applied on your clothes, bedding, curtains flooring without any staining or residual effects.
If you’re REALLY sensitive to allergies, we highly recommend installing a whole house Air and VOC filter. The top of the line system that we get amazing results from is a system made by IQ air.
They make a portable to whole house integrated system which can be installed as part of your heating and air equipment. So, if you’re very sensitive to allergies and want the best indoor air care then look into IQ air go to IQAir.com.
