How an Air Purifier can Improve Your Health
- Are you an allergy sufferer?
- Do you find yourself getting sick with the flu or the common cold often?
- Does it seem like it’s easier for you to breathe when you’re outside your home than when you’re inside?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you should be concerned about the quality of your indoor air. Let’s take a look at why your indoor air quality is probably lower than you think, and how an air purifier can help improve it.
The air in your home is actually infested with millions upon millions of microscopic contaminants, most of which have an adverse effect on your health if inhaled. Dust, dust mites, insect dander, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria, and viruses are all very commonly found in the air of the average home. Most of them are lung irritants, often causing allergy attacks in people whom are susceptible to such things. The rest are biological contaminants, causing illnesses ranging from mild colds to more serious afflictions.
There are quite a few different kinds of air purifiers on the market today, each designed to remove a different set of contaminants from the air in your home. One of the most important kinds of air purifiers is the UV germicidal light. Many of the more dangerous airborne contaminants in your home, like germs and mold spores, are extremely phobic of ultraviolet light. That’s part of why they tend to thrive in indoor environments, which are more sheltered from the sun. Too much exposure to certain kinds of ultraviolet light can sterilize or even completely destroy these organisms. The UV air purifier does exactly that, by exposing the surrounding area to ultraviolet radiation. While harmless to humans, this radiation destroys most of the biological contaminants in the air.
So, if you find yourself feeling under the weather often, consider installing an air purifier. Chances are good that you’ll notice an increase in your health after utilizing one. If you’d like to know more, call Magic Touch. We provide indoor air quality services throughout Phoenix, AZ.
