Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015We’re already in the middle of what many people consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter at what point in the year your allergies bug you the most, everyone wants to ease the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to the picture. We’ve already talked about the benefits that air filtration can deliver, so why not learn more about one more tool that can help you breath easier. No home is free from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from allowing the outdoor air inside when pollen, dust and ragweed fill the spring, summer and fall air. The goal is to make you more comfortable by diminishing or completely eliminating those irritants from reducing your indoor air quality. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common. There are several things that you can do to reduce tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you come back inside after working outside After finishing20, go inside and take a quick shower to rinse off any allergens that may be on your clothes or body If you have any pets that play outdoors, make sure you are brushing and bathing them regularly so that they don’t bring in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some confusion as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Essentially, air filters are a part of air purification systems like the PureAir™ system, but do not rid the air of as many particles as an air purifier does. This is mainly due to the fact that the PureAir™ system is made up of a three-part system which includes a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is coated with a light-activated catalyst. In the end, what really matters is undertaking those pesky allergies and making your house an oasis of relief when the outdoor air is trying to make it difficult to bear.
