Tips on Ensuring Good Air Quality in Your Sacramento Apartment Rental


According to the Environmental Protection Agency, most people spend about 90% of their time indoors, yet indoor air quality is often two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Given these facts and how air conditioning and heating has become so indispensible, it is recommended that your renters do all they can to improve the air quality in your rental home. Consider the following tips from the Sacramento apartment rentals leasing agents.


Require that your tenants not smoke in the house. Tobacco smoke contains thousands of indoor pollutants at high concentrations. Not only is it hazardous to your tenants' health as well as their pets' health, it will make your rental house smell unpleasant and may stain the walls and ceilings. Also, certain activities such as paint stripping, hobby soldering or gluing, painting, sanding, and rock polishing may create high levels of pollution and should be performed outside.


Advise your renters to keep your home well-ventilated. It is best if they open doors and windows when temperature and humidity levels permit. It's also a good idea for your tenants to keep lots of plants in your home, although it's their prerogative. Plants do more than just cheer up a room-they also improve air quality.


Also request that your tenants dust frequently and thoroughly. Regular dusting, vacuuming, and surface cleaning can reduce the accumulation of dust mites, pollens, and pet dander. Many leases of home rentals in Sacramento can, at the very least, recommend that tenants make reasonable effort in keeping the property clean, so don't be afraid to talk to your tenants about what their responsibilities are.
