WHY PURIFY YOUR AIR?

INDOOR AIR - MORE ICK! THAN MEETS THE EYE

 

We purify our water, why not our air? We eat organic food, drink filtered water and clean with anti-bacterial products. What about the air you and your family breathe? Indoor air is up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, according to the EPA. Americans spend an estimated 90 percent of their time indoors.

 

Did you know that humans shed 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells every minute? That is over 50 million per day per person living in your home. Add a family pet or two, and the number goes up even more! These dead skin cells contribute to much of the 40 pounds of dust collected in the average six-room home per year in the US. 

 

There are other causes of “mystery dust” and pollutants in your home. The fibers released from furniture, drapery, carpeting and clothing, drift and settle around the home each time they are touched. Also, when you vacuum up dirt and dust with a vacuum cleaner, you the vacuum actually spits out dirt and debris while you are cleaning!

And that’s not all! Did you know that dust mites love to feast on dust? And just like other living organisms, dust mites produce waste. If the mites themselves are not horrific enough, their waste becomes another home allergen. It’s a perfect storm to household ick!

Even in the cleanest homes, don’t be fooled by what you cannot see. These culprits may not be visible, but they are there wreaking havoc on the well-being of you and your family.

 

 

OUTDOOR AIR - GET SOME FRESH AIR?

 

Outdoor air is filled with more dust and pollutants as a result of particulate matter circulating from the natural environment, industry and transportation. Opening windows for “fresh” air allows these outside particulates to enter your home.

 

By now you barely want to breathe! Most pollutants are microscopic and can easily pass through the nose or throat directly into the lungs, increasing chances of you and your family becoming susceptible to allergens and irritants.
