It's no mystery that smells can sometimes linger in a home. New carpet, fresh paint, even the fish you cooked last Thursday can be the source on lingering odors. Believe it or not, activities such as installing new carpet, painting and cooking can contribute to poor indoor air quality (IAQ). Therefore, solving the case can require more than simply spraying air fresheners and lighting candles. It's a fact that poor IAQ can lead to more problems than merely a house that smells funny. That's why air purification is important to every home, and every person in that home.
Air purification can be crucial to your health and to the health of each of your family members. Studies conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency indicate that your exposure to air pollutants can be more than 100 times higher indoors than outdoors. "Sick Building Syndrome" (SBS), a term many people are familiar with, costs North America more than $100 billion each year in health care costs, absenteeism, lost production time and lost revenue.
Bacteria is also at the heart of SBS. Chmeicals in carpets, household cleaners, furniture and building materials all contribute to poor IAQ, as do dust mites, animal dander, cat saliva and mold. To kill harmful bacteria caused by these pollutants, it might be a good idea to "clear the air" with air purification products.
Benefits of Air Purification:
It is estimated that 50% of all illnesses are either caused by, or aggravated by poor indoor air quality. So, clean indoor air is important. Air purification products provide a variety of methods to help contribute to a healthier living environment.
One such method is through the use of ultra violet (UV) lights, which inhibit the growth of biological contaminants. Through a process known as photolysis oxidation, UV rays help decompose air contaminants. When installed in conjuction with your home comfort system, these air purification devices can eliminate a good portion of the organisms in the treated area. At the same time, they clean the air filter surface, creating an environment that inhibits biological contaminants from growing.
