People are spending more time than ever before in their houses. As a result, there has been more thought put into how our homes are keeping us safe and healthy.
Indoor Air Quality
HVAC systems are an overlooked, but important feature of your home. Not only do these units keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer, but they also play a crucial role in indoor air quality. Installing an air purification system, using quality filters and correctly placing exhaust fans throughout the house can help ensure you’re breathing clean, fresh air.
Homeowners are also encouraged to keep dust at a minimum inside their homes through frequent cleaning. Laundering bedding, vacuuming carpets and dusting shelves and other surfaces can drastically decrease dust and allergens from circulating in your home.
Working From Home
To accommodate multiple family members working from home, it’s helpful to have clear work areas that are separated from living areas. This is especially important when children are also home from school. Converting a spare bedroom into an office or designating the basement as off-limits to children during the day, can help alleviate some of the tension and stress and provide work/home boundaries.
