Now days we are hearing dire reports about the poor air quality outside but
would be shocked to learn that the breathing conditions in their own homes or
office are much worse than some parts of their polluted city.
Indoor air has dust, chemicals, pet dander, pollen mold, dust mite parts and in
some cases cigarette smoke and can cause all sorts of respiratory illness and
disease. For people with asthma the problem may cause them to experience an
air cleaner, that utilizes an advanced filtration system, can help
clear the indoor environment and keep breathing conditions at safe levels.
Cleaning up the environment in the home is the most important step a homeowner
can take in order to make indoor breathing conditions at safe levels.
Too many people live with sinus disorders, headaches, and even fatigue
syndromes, because they breathe dirty air every day and night in their own home.
Offices too but we will discuss that later.
One cause of unhealthy air is dirty air ducts which can spew out dust, mold,
dust mite feces and other allergens. The ducts in the home should be inspected
about every 3-5 years and filters should be cleaned or replaced every month. You
may notice a big difference in the home once ducts are clean and new filters
When the system is cleaned and HEPA air cleaners are used, the indoor breathing
conditions improve drastically.

Another problem that leads to poor breathing conditions is that most buildings
are breeding grounds for mold. Mold spores grow because of the readily
availability of mold in the environment. Bid time problem in South Florida.
Mold spores are microscopic in size and are easily inhaled into the lungs. Once
the mold builds up in the lungs mold can cause respiratory illness and disease.
The truth is that people get used to poor breathing conditions in their home
over time. We don’t notice the way the air smells in our home but we do in our
neighbors. But once the home is cleaned up people seem notice the difference and
then refuse to live without a filtration system.
Now not all HEPA air cleaners are alike so it is important to use a system that
actually cleans up the airborne particles that can lead to breathing problems
for people living in the home. The air cleaner should be easy to use, have easy
to clean or replace filters and be built to last.
Many people find out that one of the benefits of using an air cleaner is that
they sleep better at night. Poor breathing conditions prevent people from
sleeping soundly because their sinus and air passages are clogged by microscopic
particles, dust, mold, dust mites, etc, that they breathe in at night. Once you
get use to a HEPA air cleaner filtering the air and you sinuses are no longer
clogged which allows you to breathe better you will wish you had made the
investment earlier. People who start using heap air cleaners learn what a sound
night of sleep feels like when they wake up refreshed in the morning.
Having a HEPA air cleaner is one of most effective ways you can keep indoor air
quality clean and healthy. Like I said in the beginning, you would be surprised
if not shocked to learn that the air in you home is more polluted than the air
just outside the door.
