Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015We’re already in the middle of what many of us consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter what season your allergies bother you the most, everyone wants to relieve the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to help. We’ve already discussed the benefits that air filtration can deliver, so why not read up on one more tool that can help you breath easier. No home is immune from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from permitting the outdoor air enter into your home when pollen, dust and ragweed fill the spring, summer and fall air. The goal is to make you more comfortable by minimizing 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 enter the home after working outside After completing20, go back 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 have been outdoors, make sure you are brushing and bathing them often so that they don’t transport in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some confusion as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Basically, air filters are a part of air purification systems like the PureAir™ system, but do not free the air of as many particles as an air purifier accomplishes. 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. When it comes down to it, what really matters is tackling those aggressive allergies and making your indoor living environment an oasis of relief when the outdoor air is trying to make it difficult to bear.
