We’ve all been spending more time at home. Whether working, homeschooling, or just relaxing, indoor air quality has never been more critical.
Air Purification Is Necessary for The Home
Indoor air pollution comes from a variety of different sources; harsh cleaning products, DIY products may be easy to spot, but others may not be so obvious. If you’re cooking on a gas stove, for example, you could be releasing dangerous amounts of Nitrogen Dioxide into your home. Scented products, such as candles, laundry detergent, and air fresheners often contain harmful ingredients that can negatively impact air quality. And, if you live in a newly constructed home or have recently remodeled, you could be exposed to dangerous levels of chemicals and VOCs from new flooring, paint, furnishings, carpets, and much more.
Add to this the fact that modern homes are well-insulated and draft-free, so pollutants are often trapped inside, with nowhere to go, which affects your air quality and could contribute to respiratory issues for you and your family.
Who Recommends Air Purifiers?
Advice from the CDC, WHO, and EPA is clear: to minimize the spread of airborne viruses like COVID-19, in indoor spaces, portable HEPA air purifiers are recommended. In fact, an extensive review by the EPA concluded the combination of HEPA and Carbon is the safest and most effective solution. Fresh Air Matters offers an extensive selection of innovative and clinically proven HEPA filter and other patented filter air purifiers that can purify the air in spaces ranging from 45 sq ft to over 2,000 sq ft.
