What’s in the Air You're Breathing at Home?
common airborne allergens (such as Pollen, Dust, Pet Dander, and Mold)
are harmful to your health even when your inside your own home! In fact,
87% of Americans are not aware that indoor air is more polluted than
outdoor air. According to the EPA,
indoor levels of many pollutants are 25 to 100 times higher than outdoor
levels. Reason being, most of today’s homes are built with airtight
installation which is great for heating and cooling, but unfortunately,
keeps air pollutants trapped inside your home in the process.

Dust and Dust Mites
mites are tiny bugs that live in your home and feed off of human and pet
dander. Dust mites prefer to live in warm and humid areas including your
bed pillows and mattresses, carpets and furniture and their waste is the
cause of allergies and asthma. Purifying your indoor air with an air
filtration system can remove dust and dust mites. Also, wash your
bedding once a week in at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
dander is the old skin cells or flakes frequently shed by your pet. Pet
dander is very light in weight and will stay airborne for hours. Adding
air filtration to your air conditioning system will trap pet dander in
the air and allow you to give your pet the attention it needs without
sneezing or itching.
Mold Spores and
spores and mildew originate from damp soil and decaying vegetation.
Although, mold spores are everywhere, higher concentrations are found in
the air near farms, golf courses and artificial lakes. Inhalation of
mold spores is a common cause of asthma attacks in those who are
allergic to mold. In order to reduce mold and mildew in your home’s air,
keep the humidity level between 30-40% by using an air conditioner and a
dehumidifier. In addition, change your air filters frequently.
bacteria come from people, animals, soil and plant debris and are nearly
impossible to keep out of your home’s indoor air. By using an air
filtration system, maintaining the recommended humidity level in your
home, and eliminating standing water or water damaged surfaces, you can
easily control high levels of bacteria in your home’s indoor air.

plant pollen. A centralized air conditioning system with an air
purifier is the most effective way to reduce the pollen concentration
inside your home.
