The quality of the air inside of your home may not be as great as you think. Pollutant levels (airborne particles, gases, chemicals, and volatile organic compounds like mold) are actually higher inside the home than they are outside. So it is important to take every measure possible to protect yourself and your loved ones. Using an air purifier is one way to combat these issues.
This article from MoldUnit.com explains the many benefits of having an air purifier in your home.
Improving indoor air quality
• The first thing you need to do in your home is to attempt to control the source of the pollutant. Some indoor air pollutants, such as mold, smoke and certain types of chemicals, can be easily removed with the proper cleaning. Other pollutants like dust and pollen are not as easily dealt with.
• Secondly, you should improve your home’s ventilation. Circulating fresh air into your home is a simple way to improve your air quality (unless you live in a smoggy city or area with a ton of pollen).
• Now you are ready for an air purifier. They are designed to better the air we breathe by removing airborne pollutants and filtering common allergens such as pollen, mold and dust.
