Construction projects in or around your home this orange-cone season?

Fumes, allergens, and drywall dust can all creep their way into your home — even if the construction project is across the street. Here’s how to keep your home and air clean when large projects take over.

New Home Under Construction

No Dusty Ducts

Dust and debris can build up in your home’s vents from the inside and the outside. To make sure the air circulating throughout your home is clean and safe, you need to stay on top of duct care.

Clean ducts will prevent mold growth, get rid of allergens, and help your family breathe better.

Not sure how your ducts are doing? Our Intek team will come and do a free video inspection for you and let you know exactly what state your ducts are in.

Invest in Air Purity

There are a few ways you can make sure the air quality in your home stays clean and as allergen-free as possible. One way is through air purifiers.

Whether a small one for the room or a large purification system for the house, an air purifier will work with your clean ducts to keep the air in your home free of allergens and dust. Just remember to replace those filters when needed!

A more natural way to help keep the air quality in your home up is with plants. Some household greenery like an aloe vera or snake plant are both great, low maintenance options to help keep the air clean in your home.

Keep Carpets Clean

Making sure your floors stay clean is a great way to prevent any accidents or further damage — especially if the construction project is going on within your home.

If your home is mostly carpeted, make sure to stay on top of vacuuming. Dust and allergens from outside can collect on the ground. That, along with any pet dander you might also have, means your carpet could be trapping more than you think.

Not sure whether to clean or replace your carpets? Here’s how you can tell.

If it’s a larger construction job you’re dealing with or you haven’t had your carpets cleaned in awhile, consider calling our Intek team for one of our carpet treatment options.
