Modern life in a busy environment can have an impact on your immune system. Whether the air in your home is dusty, moldy or filled with pet dander, an air purification system could be a smart investment. The contaminants in the air you breathe may cause inflammation and a host of other mild to moderate health issues. Extreme cases of polluted air can lead to severe health complications, including asthma or emphysema. A healthy immune system is your first defense against infections, viruses and other illnesses.
Air Purifiers and Scrubbers
When it comes to cleaning your indoor air, choosing the right tool for the job is important. Air purifiers come in a wide range of styles and types. Some air purifiers are called air scrubbers because they use a wet medium in the form of a mist. Wet scrubbers physically clean the air and eliminate dust, mold and contaminants. They mist the air continuously with a fluid that typically contains a gentle cleaning agent. The agent is a non-irritating substance that can be as simple as purified water.
Protecting Against COVID-19
While wet scrubbers can be useful for eliminating dust and mold from the air, they aren’t very effective at removing microscopic particles such as bacteria and viruses. A dry scrubber, which can include a HEPA filter, does a much more thorough job of purifying the air and protecting everyone in the house from airborne viruses. With the Coronavirus outbreak causing problems all across the country, it’s important to reduce your chance of contracting this illness. Installing an air purifier or scrubber with a HEPA filter is a great way to protect your family and yourself from airborne irritants, allergens, mold spores, dust, bacteria and viruses.
