Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015We’re already in the middle of what allergy sufferers consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter at what point in the year your allergies trouble 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 talked about the benefits that air filtration can offer, so why not learn more about one more tool that can get you back to breathing a little easier. No home is completely protected from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from permitting the outdoor air 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 limit tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you come inside after working outside After doing yardwork20, head 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 go outside, make sure you are brushing and bathing them regularly so that they don’t transport in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some puzzlement as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Simply put, air filters are a part of air purification systems like the PureAir™ system, but do not clear the air of as many particles as an air purifier does. This is largely 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. In the end, what really matters is confronting those aggressive allergies and making your home an oasis of relief when the outdoor air is working to make it difficult to bear.
