How to Spring Clean the Air in Your Home

  How to Spring Clean the Air in Your Home Using an air purifier and all-natural cleaning supplies are two ways to refresh your space. Even everyday actions can contribute to low air quality, especially come springtime. Jonas Holst, the chief product officer at Blueair, explains that vacuuming, dusting, cooking, or playing with your pet can actually release pollutants into your air. And since harmful germs and viruses—COVID-19 in particular—can easily circulate within your interior, prioritizing its air is a must to keep your space fresh and safe. Ahead, several expert-approved ways to ensure your air is at its best every time spring rolls around.

If you suffer from allergies, live in an area affected by wildfires, or find that dust and pet dander tends to accumulate rather quickly in your home, you might be in the market for an air purifier. These devices work to filter out indoor pollutants—like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pollen, and mold—that can affect the air quality in your home, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). So, by bringing one of these healthy devices into your living space, you can quite literally start to breathe easier. While these gadgets can cost a pretty penny, you can definitely find one that doesn't break the bank. Case in point: Toppin's well-rated HEPA Air Purifier ($55, was $80; amazon.com) is currently on sale at Amazon for $25 off its normal price.

When it comes to clean air, you really want to consider investing in a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter system. According to the EPA, they remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria found in surrounding air—the usual suspects that are likely to affect your health. Toppin's model features this kind of filter, in addition to a nylon pre-filter and a carbon layer that help to filter out smoke and odors, too. Plus, if you're bad at keeping track of when to swap out your old filter for a new one, Toppin's air purifier automatically detects and reminds you when it's time to service the machine. The air purifier stands just under 15-inches tall and works best in areas up to 215-square feet (like a bedroom or office).

  A plugged dryer vent will cause your dryer to run inefficiently, and that's bad. A plugged dryer vent could also cause a house fire, and that could be deadly! Dryers that are centrally located in houses are most prone to plugging because of the longer ducts. Excess lint is only one reason ducts get clogged; nesting pests and stuck exhaust hood flappers can also cause backups. Stronger odors and longer dry times are two signs your vent is plugged. You'll have to remove the vent from the back of the dryer to clean it. Suck debris from the ducts with a wet/dry vac, or ream them out with a cleaning kit that includes a brush on a long flexible rod that attaches to a power drill. The kits are available at home centers. If your ducts need replacing, get smooth metal ducts, which will stay cleaner longer than the rough corrugated surface of flexible ducts. Avoid plastic ducting altogether; it can be a fire hazard. If you do these 62 things, you're a perfect homeowner.
