Are you worried about the quality of the air you're breathing right inside your own home? Do you want an air cleaner that works to remove air-borne pollutants in a safe and healthy manner?
Sure you do!
But before we get into why you should have a good quality air cleaning system in place, let's first take a look at what you're breathing right now and then what you can and should do about it.
Did You Know?
Here are some interesting facts about the atmosphere inside your home or work place that you might not be aware of:
- Indoor air is 5-7 times more polluted than outdoor air
- About 80% of all sickness is transmitted by airborne germs and microorganisms
- Up to 90% of your life is spent indoors
There are several major causes of polluted indoor air and in many cases simply removing them will end up causing you more problems. That's because many of them are necessary for you to enjoy the comfortable lifestyle you have grown accustomed to in your home.
What is Polluting Your Air?
The chemicals used in many home furnishings don't just stay where they are, but are released into the indoor atmosphere every day through general use. Flame retardant chemicals in sofas and chairs are important but they leech into the atmosphere as airborne particulates.
Chemicals in plaster, concrete and other building materials are always present, while paints and varnishes also leech polluting particulates into the atmosphere. Carpets and rugs also contain flame retardants and stain preventing chemicals.
Many household cleaning products alert you to some of their hidden dangers by the smell, although many are very good at masking the danger signals with supposed fresh or floral aromas. Sweeping, dusting and vacuuming kick up fine dust that circulates in the home.
These are just a few of the problematic causes of lung and respiratory irritants, with more information available here: "Indoor Air Pollution"
There are also many sources of airborne bacteria and mold spores that can cause irritation and even illness if left untreated.
Most leading plug-in air cleaners are not as effective as you have been lead to believe through clever advertising. They are also major ozone generators. Ozone is a toxic gas that can damage your lungs when inhaled and can worsen respiratory diseases such as asthma.
A UV-C Germicidal Air Disinfection System does not produce any ozone. Learn more about ozone here and see why it is important to avoid this type of appliance. It is far better to instead opt for a safer, more effective alternative as you'll see from the main benefits outlined below.
UV germicidal disinfection systems are proven to:
- Destroy airborne bacteria and viruses
- Inhibit mold and fungal growth
- Destroy odors
- Eliminate allergy or asthma causing pathogens
- Reduce nasal congestion
If you are concerned about indoor air quality, we recommend having a UV system installed. This system will sterilize the air in your entire home every 15-30 minutes and provides safe, affordable and natural whole house disinfection. Call us for more info.
