What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “pollution?” You probably think about automobiles, smog, or airborne chemicals outside, right? Well, did you know that the air inside your very own home could actually be more contaminated than the air outdoors? Find out how you can get rid of toxic chemicals and allergens in your home, naturally. 5 Natural Ways to Rid Your Home of Pollutants | Rusk Heating & Cooling

  1. Keep Your Floors Clean: break out the broom, fire up the vacuum or get the mop in motion. It’s vital to keep your floors free of dust and dirt and all of the other harmful things that land on them. We recommend giving your floor some attention at least twice a week.
  2. Ventilate Daily: open up your windows on nice days to allow fresh air to come in and toxic air to escape. Remember to turn on exhaust fans while cooking and bathing and allow them to run for at least 15 minutes after you’re done.
  3. Replace Furnace and A/C Filters Regularly: after all, most of the air you breathe passes through these filters before it goes into your lungs so it’s important to keep them clean. Not to mention, it will help make your equipment last longer and run more efficiently.
  4. Consider an Indoor Air Quality Solution: managing your indoor air quality can be a complex task. Indoor air quality is a three-sided battle: Filtration (removal of particulates from air flowing through heating and air conditioning equipment), Humidity (important for respiratory comfort, furniture and artwork preservation) and Infiltration (air that leaks into your house in an uncontrolled manner). An indoor air quality solution should address all three of these areas.

We offer a variety of products and solutions designed to fit your budget and improve the quality of the air inside your home.
