With a home office in Mobile, Alabama, you can tailor your workspace to maximize your productivity. Allergies, asthma, or irritated sinuses make it difficult to concentrate, and poor indoor air quality can make these problems worse. Bad air can also cause headaches and fatigue. To make your home office more comfortable and get more work done, add plants, clean your home often, and maintain your HVAC system.

Add Plants

Indoor plants can make your home office look more welcoming, lower stress, and improve your indoor air quality. Many plants can absorb harmful pollutants like benzene and formaldehyde. However, you shouldn’t keep more than a few plants in one room. Too many plants can increase your humidity and make your home office feel warm and stuffy.

Clean Often

You should clean your home often to promote high indoor air quality. A clean, organized home office also helps you to focus on your work. Clean your air registers with a damp cloth and wash your kitchen or bathroom exhaust fans every three months. Just turn off the power, remove the covers from the fans, and clean them with soap and water. You can reduce household dust and dust mites by dusting and vacuuming regularly.

Maintain Your HVAC System

To prevent an inconvenient breakdown that could keep you from getting your work done, have your HVAC system inspected by a professional twice per year. Regular maintenance also keeps your heater and air conditioner running efficiently and prevents uncomfortable warm spots or drafts. Change your HVAC system’s air filter as required to make sure your indoor air quality stays at a high level and to help you save energy. Dirty filters can’t remove allergens, and they can spread dust, dirt, mold, and other contaminants through your ductwork and the rest of your home.
