Air Purifiers Help Keep Your Indoor Air Clean
Is the air in your Greensboro home as clean as you think it is? The answer might surprise you, which is why it’s a good idea to think about buying indoor air quality products like air purifiers. Here are some of the ways these products keep your indoor air clean.
They Remove Harmful Chemicals from Indoor Air
What comes to mind when you think about air pollution? You probably think of outdoor pollutants like smog from vehicle traffic. Yet, air pollution exists in your home from everyday chemicals you use to clean your home such as ammonia, chlorine, and phthalates. Breathing these chemicals, especially in large quantities, can lead to serious health problems down the road such as tumors, cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders, and certain cancers. Air purifiers remove these chemicals to make your air healthy.
Purification systems also get rid of radon, a naturally occurring radioactive element that’s found in granite, soil, and rocks. You can’t see radon because it’s a colorless gas. It’s also odorless, but radon gas leaks can cause lung cancer. Fortunately, purifiers that use activated carbon filters and HEPA filters trap radon gas and particles and protect people from their harmful effects.
They Keep You Healthier
Do you feel like your family is always sick? Well, your home’s air might be the reason someone always has the flu or a head cold. That’s because airborne diseases spread easily in contained spaces. Fortunately, the main job of air purifiers with HEPA filters is to scrub the air and rid of bacteria and viruses. Everyone benefits from air purification, but if you or someone in your household has a weakened immune system, a purifier is a must-have appliance.
