Allergy season is upon us. From late March through May, approximately 40 million Americans suffer with seasonal allergies. If you’re among them, you know just how annoying and even debilitating allergic reactions can be. Do yourself a favor and remove dust, pollen, and other airborne particles from your air through indoor air filtration.
Why Should You Get an Air-Filtering Purification System?
The EPA named indoor air pollution as one of the five most serious public health risks to average Americans today. Studies suggest the air inside your home could be as much as 100 times more polluted that the air outside. Dust mites, pollen, and plant parts can cause allergic reactions. Mites are tiny nuisances invisible to the naked eye who love to live in your house. You provide them with a food source: dead skin. The average adult sheds at least one pound of dead skin a year.
How Does An Air Purification System Work?
An air purification system constantly filters airborne contaminants and particles, like those that trigger allergic reactions, out of the air. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, common triggers of indoor allergies include mold and mildew, hair, pet dander, smoke, insects, dust mites, and volatile organic compounds—airborne fibers from synthetic carpets, fresh paint and glues. The good news is an air purification system can help remove these particles and pollutants.

A McGowan’s HealthyHome Indoor Air Quality test will detect the number of pollutants and allergy irritants in your home and assess you and your family’s exposure to indoor pollutants. After that, you can choose from a number of air filters that suit your needs and budget.
