Why Air Purifiers are Great for Your Family
Taking care of your health by way of the air
People these days are very health and diet conscious. Now more than ever we are paying great attention to what is going into our bodies in the form of food, but are we constantly eating? Of course not. What we are constantly doing though is breathing. Americans spend 60 to 90 percent of their time indoors, more than half of that time is typically spent in their homes. So wouldn’t it make sense for us to be more aware of what exactly we are breathing while we’re home?
Every day by being indoors our bodies are exposed to small amounts of toxins, carcinogens, and organic pollutants, and over the course of our lives this can have a very harmful effect and even lead to an increased risk of disease. Air quality easily ranks as one the most influential factors on our health, as evidenced in countries that suffer from high levels of air pollution, and it isn’t always easy to identify harmful pollutants by just our sense of smell. In order to help your home and family you should invest in a home air purification system and reap the future benefits of this healthy habit.
Purification Eliminates or Reduces Odors
One major benefit to having an air purifier in your home is that common or unwanted odors will be dramatically reduced and in most cases can be eliminated. This is great if you live in a home with a cigarette smoker! Not only will it eliminate the smell, but it will kill almost all of the harmful chemicals you may breathe in from second-hand smoke. It will also reduce the smells of fishy foods, oil, paint, cat litter boxes (ammonia), pet dander smells and powerful cleaning supply smells. Air purifiers aren’t like air fresheners, they don’t cover up odors, they filter and eliminate them from the air. In high humidity areas like Florida mold and mildew strive, there are certain purifiers (which we will talk about later) that kill the mold that creates the musty smells, even down in the carpeting.
They Allow Less Dust to be on Furniture and Other Surfaces
Don’t you hate having to dust your home all the time? I’ve even heard of family having to dust their homes twice a week because of dust particles and Florida’s high pollen levels. Dust is made up of 80% dead skin cells and the rest is made up of pet hair, sand, pollen and even mold spores. Luckily there are some air purifiers out there that can eliminate up to 70% of that dust from your home making it easier to clean AND to breathe.
Less Sneezing and Asthma Problems for Families
Perhaps the most important reason to invest in an air purifier is that it helps your health. Ionic purifiers clean even the tiniest particles in the air. The reason the air inside your home is worse than the air outside is because potentially dangerous airborne bacteria, viruses, fungus, asbestos (causes mesothelioma cancer), and molds can be locked inside your home, floating around and affecting you without you even knowing it.
One in eight people in America have asthma, one in 6 people suffer from allergies, and allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the United States. There are purifiers that can help! The benefits for people who are susceptible to these issues are obvious, and an air purifiers will surely ease up their breathing while inside.
