What Causes Air Quality to Decrease in Warm Weather?Poor air quality in warm weather is caused by a variety of factors. The first, and most obvious, is the fact that plants typically produce the most pollen during the warmest periods of the year. This excess pollen can severely aggravate existing respiratory conditions. Another common contributing factor is the fact that travel by vehicle is most common during the summertime, which adds additional air pollution to major cities in the form of car exhaust. The final cause of poor air quality during the summer, however, is less obvious. High air temperatures can cause levels of ozone in the air to be increased. Though ozone is typically thought of as a beneficial substance for its critical role in blocking ultraviolet rays from sunlight in the upper atmosphere, it can be extremely dangerous to human health when inhaled. Short term exposure can irritate the respiratory system, making asthma symptoms worse. Longer term exposure, on the other hand, can cause permanent damage to parts of the respiratory system. Though seldom thought of, ozone is the most potentially harmful factor contributing to poor air quality in the summertime.
What Can Residents do About Poor Omaha Air Quality?Residents of Omaha, as well as just about any major metropolitan area, should take steps to protect themselves from the air quality decrease that happens to varying degrees during any prolonged period of warm weather. There are several simple steps that anyone can take to limit the potential risk of exposure to unhealthy air. These include keeping windows shut during the daytime, using a central air system to cool and circulate the air in your home and making sure to limit intense physical exercise outdoors. For those who wish to add protection to their homes in order to be sure to avoid complications from poor air, the best option is a residential air purifier. If you have asthma, allergies or are just concerned about the health of yourself and your family, you can check out our wide variety of air purification systems here. Have questions about which system is best for your needs? Don't worry, we're here to help. Feel free to contact us with your questions, and we'll help you to pick out the perfect air purifier for use in your home.
Replace All A/C and HVAC FiltersWhether you use window unit air conditioners or a central air system, spring is the best time to replace your filters before cranking the air up for the first time. Over the winter, dust can build up in air conditioning units, and window units can even be prone to mold growth because of their exposure to outside humidity. While doing your spring cleaning, it is best to go ahead and replace all of the air system filters in your home so that your comfortable air conditioning doesn't start spreading dust, mold spores and other unpleasant health hazards into the air you have to breathe.
Dust All of the Hard to Reach AreasDust can build up remarkably quickly in small nooks and crannies, many of which you never even think of when doing general cleaning. A thorough spring clean is an ideal opportunity to dust under and behind furniture, inside cabinets and in other difficult to reach areas. With allergy season already at hand, the last thing you need is airborne dust adding even more irritation to your respiratory system.
Look for MoldMost people would never believe how easy it is for mold to grow inside their homes without being noticeable. While you are going through and cleaning all of the areas you usually ignore, it's a good idea to look for signs of mold or mildew. Be especially on the lookout for molds which are black in color, as certain types of black mold can be devastatingly bad for human health. If you do find patches of any kind of mold beginning to grow on walls or ceilings, wash them down with soapy water or, in more extreme cases, a diluted bleach solution to kill the mold and neutralize any spores that may be present. Pay especially close attention in basements, as foundation cracks can let groundwater in and create a perfect environment for mold growth.
Look Into a Home Air PurifierNow that you've gone through the process of changing all of your air system filters, carefully removing all of the dust from the nooks and crannies and made a thorough search for mold and mildew, your home is probably the healthiest it has been all year. If you want to keep it this way, making use of a residential air purifier is one of your best options. A good air purifier will keep your home free of dust and mold spores, making it less likely that all of the problems you've just solved will recur. You can check our out complete line of residential air purifiers for all uses and sizes of homes here. Not sure what you need? Don't worry, we're here to help. Feel free to contact us with your questions, and we'll help guide you through the process of picking out the air purifier that is perfect for your home and your needs.
1. Leaving Windows Open During the DayAt this time of year, it can be great to open up the house and let some fresh air in during the day. However, this is also one of the easiest ways for pollen to get into your home. Plants produce pollen mostly during daylight hours, so the time during which the sun is up and the hour immediately after it goes down will be the times of day with the highest pollen levels. If you suffer from severe asthma or allergies, it's best to keep your house shut during these hours. If you really need some fresh air in your house, open up the windows at night to let the air circulate before peak pollen production begins again the next morning.
2. Having a Beer or a Glass of Wine With DinnerA refreshing beer or a glass of wine may pair perfectly with what you're having for dinner, but alcohol does not go well with allergies. Numerous studies have confirmed that alcohol can make people more susceptible to allergic reactions caused by pollen. Cutting back during this time of the year can help you to keep your allergy symptoms to a minimum.
3. Having Your Kids Play OutsideIf you have children, chances are this is the time of year when they most enjoy playing outdoors. When they come back inside, however, they bring in pollen that has accumulated on their clothing and shoes. Of course, you'd never want to keep your children from having fun and getting healthy exercise outdoors, but it can be a good idea to have them change into fresh clothes when they come back in. Keep in mind that this is especially important if both you and your children experience allergy symptoms related to pollen.
4. Running OutsideOn a day that your allergies don't seem to be affecting you, a run might seem like a great idea. After all, who doesn't want to enjoy the warm days and get some exercise? The problem is that your body responds to running or other cardiovascular exercise in a very specific way. In order to supply the needed oxygen to your muscle tissues, your body will begin to draw in larger and larger breaths. If there is pollen in the air, this causes you to draw much more pollen into your respiratory system than normal. Even on a day with fairly low pollen levels and when your allergies aren't acting up, a run that forces you to breathe heavily can set your allergies off. These are just a few of the fairly common things that people do without realizing what a large impact they can have on allergy symptoms. If you notice a pattern among them, it's that most simply involve letting pollen get to you in unexpected ways. If you're serious about making sure the air you breathe is as pollen-free as possible, you should consider looking into a home air monitoring system, such as the Foobot. Using tools like this to keep track of the pollen levels in your home can help you plan the best ways lower them.
Filtration-Based Air Duct CleaningMost forms of air duct cleaning rely on some kind of filter built into the ventilation system itself. These filters physically remove particles and gases from the air that is circulated in the air ducts in order to maintain purity and cleanliness. Much like with stand-alone air purifiers, there are multiple types of filters that can be used in these systems to specifically target different contaminants. HEPA Filters: HEPA filters are the most basic form of filtration usually employed in air duct systems. These filters will remove 99.97% of any solid particles that are greater than 0.3 microns in diameter. HEPA filtration is excellent for targeting pollen, airborne matter, dust and other such particles, as well as most mold spores. Carbon Filtration: Though HEPA filters are excellent for solid particles, they cannot reduce levels of gases in the air. For this, carbon filtration is required. Carbon filters used the naturally porous properties of refined carbon combined with special chemical treatments to trap and bind potentially harmful gases in the air. This type of filtration is especially important in industrial facilities, where harmful gases can easily build up from even basic manufacturing processes. Titanium Dioxide Filtration: Used in conjunction with UV lights (discussed independently below), titanium dioxide filters form what is known as a photocatalytic filtration system. This type of system uses water in the presence of organic gases and the titanium catalyst to form hydroxyl molecules, which have properties useful in both neutralizing harmful gases and killing microorganisms,such as bacteria and viruses.
Non Filtration-Based Air Duct CleaningThough many forms of air duct cleaning rely solely on some type of filter, there are others that do not. Following are some of the most non-filter methods of keeping air ducts clean. UV Light: Though most effective when used in conjunction with a titanium dioxide filter, UV light on its own is very effective for neutralizing viruses, bacteria and mold spores in the air. Many hospitals make use of UV lights to maintain cleanroom environments, and this same principle can be applied in any home or commercial facility. Probiotic Sprays: A recently developed method of keeping air ducts clean is to use probiotics, or beneficial bacteria, to populate the surface inside of an HVAC system. While this may seem counterintuitive at first, it is extremely effective, as the beneficial bacteria take up space and food sources that otherwise would allow harmful bacterial colonies to grow. To learn more about this relatively new development in the world of air purification, check out our line of probiotic air purifiers. Professional Cleaning: Though the rest of these options are excellent for using to maintain clean air ducts in the future, it may be that you will need a physical air duct cleaning before you can successfully implement any of them. Air ducts that have gone uncleaned for long periods of time may require a thorough cleaning before new filters or non-filtration cleaning methods can be put into place. This kind of cleaning can cost several hundred dollars, which is one of the best arguments for making use of at least one other type of passive cleaning method.
