It's suddenly feeling like fall here! Winter isn't far behind. Last month was indoor air quality awareness month and it got me thinking about the state of my indoor air during the winter and what I need to do to make it better.
- Change the filters in our heating system – we got a new system last year and it has a HEPA filter. Need to get DH to figure out what filters we have and get them replaced before we turn on the heat. It was 61°F in here this morning, so need him to get on that!
- Need to dust…everything! I've been slacking over the summer and there is dust everywhere! Dust that contains all sorts of allergens like pollen that came in. All that will be blown around w/ our forced air heating system. My office is the worst right now and I really need to tackle it! There are piles of clutter that I just need to deal with.
- Check the window seals – in the past, I've had issues with mold growth in window seals. Mold is one of my worst asthma triggers.
- Speaking of mold….need to keep all the leaves and stuff cleaned up. We have a gardening service that comes once a month to clean things up. DH does the rest in between that. They were here one Saturday and by Monday, you couldn't even tell! All those leaves piled up w/ the rain coming are going be an issue for me with the mold growth.
