Valley home expert gives tips for keeping a healthy home
With cases of the coronavirus being reported worldwide, many people are looking for ways to stay healthy.
One Valley home expert says an easy way to help prevent sickness is by keeping your home clean.
Erik Bryan, the owner of Precision Air and Plumbing, told KTAR one of the best ways to do this is through cleaning your air filter frequently.
“The very basic [way to maintain proper air quality] would be making sure you’re changing your air filter on a monthly basis,” Bryan said.
Bryan recommended changing air filters even more often if someone in the home does become sick.
“Anytime somebody is sick in the home, it would always be well-advised to disinfect the home with Lysol, things like that, and then changing your air filters to make sure any dust, pollen, any types of infections that are airborne — you remove those,” Bryant said.
This is especially important to keep from spreading diseases as well.
Other ways to prevent the spread of illness is to minimize the number of people and pets coming in and out of your home, making sure doors and windows are closed when not in use and remain properly sealed and keeping humidity and moisture levels in your home low.
