The Truth About the Air in Your Home | American Home Services

We all look forward to the first step of returning home after a long day, removing your mask and taking a deep breath.

Many Americans place grave importance on protecting themselves and their family from outdoor pollutants such as fuel emissions, allergens, and even airborne viruses. But what about the air quality inside of their own homes?

American Home Services understands the importance of ensuring every inhale provides comfort and relaxation.

How Safe is My Air?

Most of us spend the majority of our time indoors. You may assume that your home’s air is much safer than the outdoor world filled with pollutants and foreign particles. However, the EPA estimates that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times dirtier than outside air quality.

Unfiltered air can pose both health and comfort problems in your home. You may experience health effects from these irritants soon after exposure or even years down the road. Without proper air purification, pesky pollutants have the potential to diminish your air quality significantly.

Sources of Indoor Air Problems

Many indoor pollution sources release gases and particles into homes that can lead to allergies, breathing difficulties, and various health problems. Without proper ventilation, these indoor pollutants may remain trapped inside the house for extended periods. It’s important to be aware of the common causes of poor indoor air quality, such as:

  • Dust, pollen, and mold buildup in the home

  • Household cleaning chemical fumes

  • Secondhand smoke

  • Intense odors from synthetic fragrances and candles

  • Pet dander and hair


Suppose any of the above sources are heavily concentrated in the home. In that case, the irritants may remain in the home for extended periods of time, long after they are removed from the household.

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Ready to rid your indoor air of pollutants? Thankfully, homeowners can easily manage the quality of their indoor air with simple steps! Expert recommendations include:

Clean Rugs and Linens Weekly

Carpets, linens, and rugs act as their own air filters in the home-trapping floating allergens and dust. Cleaning these items on a regular basis allows them to continue to work as an additional filter in the home, providing functionality and cleaner air.

Add Indoor Plants

Adding a few indoor plants to your home can add life to your space and influence the air quality. Investing in select plants such as ferns, snake plants, and lilies can help pull pollutants out of the air, alongside other air purification steps. Head to your local plant nursery to start improving your home’s air quality with a unique and natural flair!

Utilize an Air Purification System

Installing an air purification system in your home can lead the way to pristine air quality! These systems are crucial when trying to prevent the overflow of harmful allergens and irritants in the air of your home.

What is an Air Purification System?

Air purification systems significantly reduce dust, buildup odors, pet dander, and ozone in the home. Air purifiers ensure your family is breathing clean, quality air by preventing consistent exposure to harmful airborne particles.
