Check Humidity Levels– It is important to keep humidity levels in check, as well as monitoring mold and mildew.  This is especially important in kitchens and bathrooms where higher levels of moisture tend to accumulate throughout the year.

Fan Testing- In order to test the effectiveness of your fan, place a piece of tissue paper near the fan.  If it is drawn back towards the grill and stays there for as long as the fan is on, then your fan is circulating air properly.

Clean Kitchen Air­– The kitchen is a huge source for indoor air pollutants, especially if you own a gas stove.  So it is important to use your exhaust fan to remove any pollutants while preparing and cooking meals.

Dust Regularly– Dust is comprised of dead shed skin and pet dander.  In order to keep away dust mites, it is important to keep dust and debris to a minimum as much as possible.  It is also recommended to wash linens in very hot water and replace pillow cases regularly.
