Air purifiers can go a long way in helping to capture airborne pollutants and overall improving your indoor air quality. This is especially important given that most people spend more than 90% of their time indoors. ome of the largest exposure to pollutants and allergens can occur indoors.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor levels of pollutants can be two to five times higher than outdoor levels. Primary sources of pollutants can include dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke, viruses, bacteria and even VOCs from cleaning products and building materials. Pollutants range in size and can be small enough to travel into the lungs. Exposure to these types of pollutants can cause negative health effects, therefore using air purifiers can help improve indoor air quality by capturing these airborne particles.
