Do It Yourself Ideas

Air Filtration in your House: Aireox Air Filters - a link to the company

or Aireox at Amazon

I love this air filter. I sold my farm and moved into an apartment that was still off-gassing from being built. I bought two of these and they were a life saver. If I turned them off for a few hours the difference in air quality was quite noticeable. So, they are great for VOCs in new houses. People using them for moldy houses like them as they are cleanable which most air filtration units are not. Some people have purchased other units that are hard to clean and ended up throwing them away when the unit became moldy. I would be more inclined to use an ozone machine (when you are out of the house) than an air filter for mold. However, the feedback is that this machine can be useful.

I have purchased a few similar ozone machines that have all been good. The last one I purchased was Ozone POwer 5000 and it works fine, but I see that it is currently unavailable on Amazon where I bought it. All these ozone machines seem to have problems some times. Every once in awhile people get a bad one. I did at one point.

Air conditioner set up for folks that is easier to clean & cheap

This air conditioner is a simple set up and may seem silly to some folks, but when your place is moldy and you don't want to ruin an expensive air conditioner, this is the way to go.

 

Dehumidify the air if you have high humidity in your house. (Check with a hygrometer.)

Dehumidifiers by EdgeStar

Many dehumidifiers will work as they are fairly basic. Just get a size correct for the room.

 

Hygrometer: Relative Humidity Gauge

This gadget ells you how much moisture is in your house.  This is one I have used and had good luck with. I like to keep the humidity in my house under 50%.
