5 Reasons You Need Indoor Air Cleaners


Are you coughing too much? Feeling a bit sick continuously, lately? Notice a strange smell in your surrounding environment?

You are not the odd one out here, all these things happen to everyone you know. What’s the reason? The air around you is not clean. You are breathing stale, contaminated air. You need indoor air cleaners. Let’s see reasons for this bad air so you know exactly what you need to do to identify and get rid of bad air and solve your indoor air cleaners problem.

1. Common Contaminants

Common contaminants are microscopic. You cannot always see them but you know they exist like dust, viruses, fungi, dander etc. Your air can be contaminated by these as they enter into your home through open windows, cracks in your doors and walls and even through your chimney. You will also find bacteria and mold in your home. The bacteria multiply at a fast pace constantly affecting your air.  Your pets can also be the source of bad air. Its hair and saliva create bacteria. Other artificial forms of contaminants that affect you are perfumes, paint, cooking fumes and cleaning agents and supplies.

2. Repair and Maintenance

Renovations, repairs and maintenance to your house can accumulate dust in your HVAC system. You will not see it happening but soon the same bad air will start circulating in your home. No matter how thoroughly you clean up after repairs, some sort of dust or residue always travels into your HVAC.

3. Varied Humidity Levels

If you feel that some areas in your house are dry and others are muggy, you can easily conclude you have a bad air problem. You need to change the levels of humidity in your house to clean your air. The change in temperature in different rooms of your house also shows that your air is affected by your HVAC system.

4. Lack of Ventilation

Your house needs proper ventilation. If you keep your windows closed all the time and have no other outlet for oxygen to enter your house.

Ventilation primarily has two main jobs. It allows bad air and contaminants to leave your house and allows fresh air in. So, insufficient ventilation causes bad air. But even if you open up your house for air, you will find contaminants from outside the house invading your clean air and you will end up with a little oxygen and a lot of bad air. You can switch on your air conditioner for better ventilation.

5. Effects from Neighborhood

If your neighbors spray insecticides in their lawn, that will carry into your house too through the open window. The contaminants from your neighborhood have now entered into your place too. You need to find alternatives to keep an open window for cleaner air.
