The quality of air in your home depends on what comes inside. Dirt from shoes, pet hair, even pollen and dust drifting in through open windows all find their way into your HVAC system. Having your ducts and vents cleaned professionally is important for healthy indoor air, but there is more you can do to maintain good air quality.
Regularly vacuuming and dusting floors and surfaces removes dirt and dust before it gets stuck in your HVAC system. Carpets especially attract particles much like a filter would—and filters need to be changed often. Having your carpets professionally cleaned (we recommend every two years at least) will keep those dirt magnets from getting too clogged. The simple habit of taking your shoes off at the door helps keep levels of outside particles to a minimum.
