Spring cleaning is a way for homeowners to get their homes ready for the warm summer months ahead. Although whole-home cleaning is good to do multiple times a year, the spring is the perfect time to get it done once! Spring cleaning can help create better energy efficiency, prolong the life of important home systems, and if you follow these tips, you can improve the air quality of your whole home!
At ServiceOne, our team understands the importance of taking care of your home. That is why we offer the services we do, to help homeowners in the Omaha, Neb., and Dubuque, Iowa areas continue living comfortably at all times during the year. Below, we go over some things you can do to make your home’s air quality better this spring.
Change your HVAC filter
The first thing everyone should add to their spring cleaning checklist this year is to change their home’s air filter. Every homeowner should regularly change out their HVAC filter every two to three months, but oftentimes this step can be easily forgotten. That is why spring is the perfect time to get this taken care of! Changing your home’s air filter will not only improve the overall air quality in your home, but also ease your A/Cs workload, and create better energy efficiency in your home.
Open your windows
Believe it or not, during the winter months, your home’s air quality can actually decrease a bit. However, there is an easy solution for this; allow natural air to come into your home! Opening windows will help add fresh, natural air to your home, which in turn will help properly ventilate your space while reducing the number of allergens.
It might not be everyone’s favorite chore to do,but it’s actually really important when improving your home’s air quality, and yes we are talking about dusting. When dust builds up in your home, you are essentially giving dust mites, allergens, germs and bacteria an easier place to hide throughout your entire home. However, by adding dusting to your spring cleaning checklist, you can significantly reduce the amount of these allergens and particles in your home, and in turn, create healthier air.
Invest in air quality products
Another way to help prepare your home’s air for the summer months ahead is by purchasing and installing new air quality products throughout your home. Having good air quality in your home is important, and luckily there are products out there that help make this easier!
At ServiceOne, we offer a variety of air quality products that are proven to create healthier and cleaner air. We perform full maintenance, repairs and installations on:

Schedule an HVAC inspection
While you’re taking care of the rest of your home, now is a great time to add an HVAC inspection appointment to your spring cleaning checklist.
Having your HVAC equipment inspected will help ensure that you are making the proper transition from your furnace to your air conditioner, as well as making sure your system is up to date and working as properly and efficiently as it should.
The spring season is one of the best times of the year to take the initiative and get things done around your home. Take advantage of the warmer weather this spring and enhance your home’s air quality with these tips!
