At this point, we can admit that it’s been hard not to panic about indoor air quality over the past year. With newfound knowledge about how viruses spread, mutate, and affect our lives, people have been scrambling to try and combat this growing threat. That being said, it’s important to look at the overall health of a home, and not just how well it keeps away viruses.
After all, no indoor air quality machine can replace washing your hands with soap and water, or wearing a mask at the grocery store.
So, if you’re already practicing some healthy activities like the ones we mentioned above, then we’ve got some helpful technology that could improve your home safety even more. When it comes to indoor air quality in Shreveport, LA, we’ve got everything you could possibly need.
Here’s How We Can Help
Aside from best practices like washing your hands and having proper ventilation, there are some great ways to improve your indoor air quality with the help of our team.
UV Air Purifier
A UV air purifier, or an ultraviolet air purifier, uses UV light to eliminate microorganisms as they pass through your air ducts. This system can be wonderful because it exists completely out of the way so they’re easy to forget that they exist. By just using light, they emit low-level radiation that inhibits a single cell organism’s ability to reproduce, essentially rendering bacteria, viruses, and mold spores harmless. Then, they’ll just fall onto a surface in your home to be cleaned up with regular cleaning supplies, like dust.
UV air purifiers are harmless, both because they’re in your ducts and not in the other areas of your home, and they also don’t produce enough radiation to harm a human being. If you’re looking to add a serious layer of protection to your house, this is one of the best systems available.
If you’re suffering from inorganic materials clogging up your air and making your home feel stuffy, then a UV air purifier might not help. Air filtration systems are designed to trap particles over a certain size, like dust, pet dander, dirt, hair, and paint particles. This means, even if they’re inorganic, they’ll still get caught and removed from your home’s air, making the house feel fresh and clean. Sometimes air filtration systems can work best together with the help of a UV air purifier to completely clean a home’s air.
Sometimes your home can be inundated by mold because of poor humidity control. Too much humidity during our muggy summers can lead to a lot of mold and mildew, which can easily be dealt with when you’ve got a dehumidifier. Our team specializes in whole-house dehumidifier systems that can completely reduce the humidity levels in your home. This means you’ll see less mold and mildew, and ease the burden on your air purifier or air filtration system as a result.
