How To Maintain Good Indoor Air Quality When Renovating

Published by Jennifer Fletcher

Remodeling requires a lot of planning, especially if you’re making significant changes to your home. Your project can be noisy, messy and dusty, and during the construction, pollutants may be released into the air. Maintaining good indoor air quality during and after renovating your home should always be a priority.

To help keep the air you breathe as clean as possible, here’s an expert tip from a trusted air conditioning service provider.

Know what you’re up against. Lead, asbestos, mold and formaldehyde are just some of the harmful substances that could be in your house which can cause health issues such as lung cancer, poisoning and central nervous system problems. When not disturbed, they won’t usually directly affect your health. However, after tearing down walls, ceilings and floors, they can become airborne. If you have harmful pollutants in your indoor air, you’ll need to hire professionals to remove them and avoid risking your health.

Best Practices For Indoor Air Quality


Before the actual construction begins, you should have your home’s indoor air quality tested for pollutants. If your contractor discovers mold and mildew issues during the renovation, they’ll replace the affected materials and clean the area thoroughly. Keep the construction site well-ventilated, because products such as paint, paint thinners and varnish can potentially release volatile organic compounds (VOCs). You can prevent pollutants from spreading to other parts of your house by sealing off HVAC ducts and vents during the project.


Run your air purifier or air scrubber during and after the renovation. This type of equipment can remove dust and other airborne pollutants in your living spaces. They’ll also aid in keeping your home’s air clean and fresh.

Moreover, after the project, make sure to give your home a thorough cleaning. Seal bottles and containers after each use. Place paint containers in a well-ventilated storage space and avoid putting them near heating and air conditioning equipment. Properly dispose of products with mercury, lead or asbestos,
