Summer is prime time for flareups of asthma and allergies in Easton, MD. Although doctors recommend that you stay indoors to take advantage of air conditioning, your air quality can make your symptoms worse because of the airtightness of today’s home. Read on to learn how indoor air quality impacts family health in your Easton, MD home.

Why Indoor Air Quality Differs

Indoor air pollution differs from what you find outdoors on the Eastern Seaboard in the types of particulates present. Particulates inside your home include a mixture of agents that come from the outside as well as interior emissions from gas appliances, dust mites and even chemicals shed by furniture and carpeting. High humidity in the summer can play a part, too, as some organisms thrive in damp locations. Women, children and the elderly are most at risk for exacerbated asthma and allergy symptoms.

Consider Air Duct Cleaning

Your HVAC system moves air through your home throughout the entire year. Over time, the walls of ducts accumulate dust, dirt, bacteria, viruses and other debris. Scheduling duct cleaning every few years will help reduce the number of undesirable particles circulating through your home. Many homeowners find that their asthma and allergy symptoms reduce following a thorough duct cleaning. Another task you can do on your own is to change air filters every three months to improve your home’s air quality.

Other Ways to Improve Air Quality

Keep humidity at the proper levels in the summer. Make sure the level is between 30% and 50%. In addition, if you have a home that is especially dusty, consider adding an air cleaner to your system to improve air quality.
