Spring is the perfect time to deep-clean, declutter and reset living areas around your home. As warmer weather arrives so does tree pollen and sprouting grasses with stormy days that can affect the air both inside and outside your home. You can improve your home's air quality by removing dust and bringing in fresh air to ventilate after the winter months along with a seasonal deep cleaning.
Create a plan for all areas of your home
Now is the time to tackle areas in your home that may not be part of your weekly routine like baseboards, ceiling fans, light fixtures, and hard to reach corners. It is important to make sure your home is ventilated while using cleaning products as they can be a source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which impact the air quality in your home. Using less-toxic products can help reduce VOCs in your home.
Breathe cleaner, healthier indoor air
There can be some unpleasant things present in the indoor air you breathe like airborne particles, germs and bacteria, and chemical odors and vapors. Luckily, a PureAir S air purification system from Lennox provides whole home air purification for perfect air. It combats all three major types of indoor air contaminants. This system offers hospital-grade* filtration featuring the Lennox Healthy ClimateTM Carbon Clean 16® air filter that removes over 99% of the virus that causes COVID-19* from the air*. Unlike other air purification products on the market, the PureAir™ S system does not produce any ozone as a by-product and actively works to reduce ozone, a known lung irritant.‡
