Many people are surprised to learn that some of their health concerns may be related to the air they are breathing in their own home. Health experts realize that for long term health, it’s imperative that you breathe air free of mold, viruses and bacteria.
The EPA warns us that indoor air quality is the number one environmental health problem in the US. Today’s homes and building are built air-tight and contain a long list of pollutants, and super-insulated homes can contain up to 200% more allergens than ordinary homes – not a good sign for a society full of people who tend to spend about 90% of their time indoors. The good news is that our state-of-the-art air purifiers can purify the air you breathe each day.
Many health challenges are related to mold, viruses and bacteria that are untouched by common air purifiers. Some air filters that contain paper filters may even make mold issues worse.
The three main categories of indoor air pollutants are
As a result of the pollutants above, the EPA informs us that 6 out of 10 homes and buildings are “sick,” meaning they are potentially hazardous to your health. Immediate effects of poor indoor air quality include irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, headaches, asthma, and symptoms that may mimic a cold or virus. In the long term, pollutants and air toxins can lead to respiratory diseases, heart disease and cancer.
A home air filter can remove indoor air pollutants and improve the health of you and your family. But with so many home air filters on the market, how do you know which one to choose?
At Tree of Life, we performed months of research to find the best in-home air filtration system for our customers: Air Oasis Air Purification.
Traditional air purifiers catch particulates in a filter, but do little or nothing to filter volatile organic compounds and other dangerous pollutants. Air Oasis uses a process called photo catalytic oxidation to destroy particulates and neutralize VOCs, without the potential dangers of using ozone or negative ions. Best of all, Air Oasis Air Purifiers have no filters to change and require virtually no maintenance.
