Indoor Air Quality at Investment Properties

As an investment property owner, you know that there are a lot of things to keep track of. From maintaining the property to finding good tenants, it can be a lot of work. But one thing that you may not be thinking about is indoor air quality.

Indoor air quality is important for both your tenants and your investment. Poor indoor air quality can lead to health problems for your tenants, and it can also damage the property. That’s why it’s important to take steps to improve the indoor air quality in your investment properties.

Here are a few things you can do to improve indoor air quality:

  • Install a good air filtration system. A good air filtration system can remove pollutants from the air, making it cleaner and healthier to breathe.
  • Keep the property clean. Dust, dirt, and other pollutants can build up in a home over time, so it’s important to keep the property clean. Vacuuming, dusting, and mopping regularly will help to remove these pollutants from the air.
  • Control humidity. High humidity can promote the growth of mold and mildew (learn more HERE), which can release harmful pollutants into the air. Make sure to keep the humidity in your property between 30% and 50%.
  • Ventilate the property. Opening windows and doors will help to bring in fresh air and remove stale air from the property.

By taking these steps, you can improve the indoor air quality in your investment properties and make them healthier and more comfortable for your tenants.

In addition to the health benefits, improving indoor air quality can also lead to financial benefits. Studies have shown that tenants are willing to pay more for a property with good indoor air quality. Additionally, poor indoor air quality can lead to costly repairs, such as mold remediation. By taking steps to improve indoor air quality, you can protect your investment and save money in the long run.

If you’re concerned about indoor air quality in your investment properties, you should have the air quality tested by a professional. This will help you to identify any potential problems and take steps to correct them.

Improving indoor air quality is an important investment in the health and well-being of your tenants and your property. By taking steps to improve indoor air quality, you can create a healthier and more comfortable environment for your tenants and protect your investment.
