How to Improve Air Quality in a Poorly-Ventilated Room

Published by Jennifer Fletcher

Nobody likes a stuffy room. Whether due to a lack of windows or simply because your room is small or constricted, poor ventilation can be a real problem, and it’s something that many people avoid when looking for a new house or apartment. Fortunately, there are ways to improve the air quality in a poorly-ventilated room. Trusted cooling and heating service provider Modern Air Solutions tells you how in today’s blog.

Poorly Ventilated Room

Leave your doors open. If you’re suffering from poor ventilation in a windowless or cramped space, one of the easiest ways to improve air circulation is to simply leave your doors open whenever possible. Not only will this help improve your overall air quality, but it will also prevent mold and mildew growth in your home.

Control humidity with a dehumidifier. Excess moisture due to poor ventilation can spur the growth of mold, mildew and other allergens. To keep humidity at reasonable levels in a stuffy room, you can purchase a dehumidifier to easily remedy the situation. Heating repair contractors recommend trying to keep humidity levels in your home at 60 percent or lower.

Add air-purifying plants. If you have a bit of a green thumb, then one great option to improve air quality is to add air-purifying plants around your house. While they can’t aid in proper air circulation, they can neutralize and absorb certain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs.

Have your air ducts cleaned. Another good way to improve your home’s air quality is to hire a professional air conditioning installation and maintenance technician to clean your ductwork. Dust, debris, animal dander and even rodent droppings accumulate in your ductwork over time and can cause all sorts of health problems. To prevent this, professional duct cleaning is recommended at least once every three years.
