All About Air Purifiers & Air Cleaners
Studies have shown that the air in our homes and offices can be more polluted than the air outside, and since most people spend about 90% of their time indoors, their home environment could be full of potential health risks.
It's no wonder that a growing number of people are seeking ways to improve their indoor air quality through a variety of air cleaning and purifying devices.
Air cleaners and purifiers are designed to treat indoor air that has become polluted by particulates or gases.
Particulates can be liquid or solid materials that are small enough to suspend in the air and can be composed of inorganic or organic compounds, bacteria or viruses. Common indoor particulates include pet dander, dust mites, fungal spores, molds and pollens.
Gaseous pollutants include carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide or the organic chemicals released from gas appliances, cigarette smoking and vehicle exhaust other pollutants can arise from gases released by building materials such as insulation, plywood, or particle board.
