How to Protect Your Family from Air Pollution with Air PurificationNovember 20th, 2018 | dev
Long-term exposure to the inversion in Salt Lake City can lead to asthma, poor concentration, and even cancer. The bad news is that contact with air pollution doesn’t stop when you close the door to your house. Instead, the contaminants enter indoors and permeates the air.
Inversion isn’t the single perpetrator of poor indoor air quality. Other contributors include:
- Paint, varnishes, and cleaning products
- Pet Dander
- Dust mites and mold
- Dirty or poorly designed air ducts
- Air Purification
Don’t even think about throwing out your cleaners or pets just yet, because we are here to help you purify the air in your home! We offer a few solutions for homeowners, including duct cleaning, humidifiers and ventilation. However, the best tool for indoor air purification is definitely an air scrubber.
How they work
Air scrubbers use liquids to wash away pollutants from the air. The air scrubbers we provide work in tandem with your HVAC system to force air through a group of filters. They are the option available if you want to kick out small contaminants in your home, since your HVAC filters are designed to remove just larger particles.
Air scrubbers are the most efficient whole-house purification system. Other appliances — designed for one room — can cost hundreds of dollars and leave areas of your home unprotected.
A few ways to tell if your family could benefit from an air purification system include:
- Family members suffering from frequent colds
- Asthma symptoms
- A stale or “funny” smell inside your home
- Frequent exposure to toxic fumes from cleaning products or paint
