What Hiding in Your Air?

There’s plenty of information circling about air purifiers and how they should be used. And while plenty opt to invest in these devices – whether from allergies, family health, or an additional concern – that doesn’t mean the average person knows what they’re purifying the air from. What exactly is in our breathing space that we’re trying so hard to get rid of?

For the most part, it depends on one’s location. Different areas of the country will have different molds, fungus, plant debris, and more. There can also be dust, leftovers from construction, or anything else that might have been released into the air. It’s important to know what’s in your area, as well as what your family might be most susceptible to. This can be done by talking to local experts, checking the weather (including air quality and pollen and/or mold counts, etc.), as well as checking new for upcoming construction nearby. 

Germs are another culprit to be on the lookout for. If one member of the family is sick, or even if they come in contact with someone who is, those germs can be passed through the air. However, generally these germs are transferred direct before they can be caught by any air purification devices. 

The Perks on an Air Purifier

In contrast, using a purifier can help eliminate allergens, irritants, and more. It can help you breathe clearer and deeper, while getting rid of nighttime symptoms. Or, at the very least, reducing side effects. Over time, this can work to improve your health. 

Changing the filter regularly can also allow you to see exactly what’s been cleaned from the air. And it might surprise you. However, those who can see the actual evidence are more likely to stick to their air purifiers and understand the benefits they can provide.
