There’s a lot of strange information going around these days. We get misconceptions from homeowners all the time about how ineffective air purifiers are or how they “don’t compare to washing your hands and covering your mouth when you cough.” We don’t understand these kinds of comments because we’re big proponents of doing a combination of all these safe practices together with the help of an air purifier.
Air purifiers in Garland, TX are not the be-all-end-all solution for contaminants. While they systematically remove and eliminate contaminants from the air, they’re not going to replace washing your hands with soap and water, covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze, or the other safe practices you utilize. Rather, we’re here to talk about the benefits that come from using an air purifier together with all of the other safety protocols you’re aware of. Only then will your home be that much safer against viruses, bacteria, and other biological contaminants.
The Elimination of Odors
Homeowners can sometimes be caught off-guard when we tell them that air purifiers will eliminate contaminants in the air. While we understand where this confusion comes from, the explanation is fairly simple. Our noses can detect scents of the environment around us by taking in small particles of whatever we’re smelling.
When you detect a foul odor, it’s because your nose is picking up on particles that are coming from that odor’s source. Whether it’s mold, bacteria, or some other contaminant, your nose is detecting particles of it in the air.
So, to make things simple, when an air purifier eliminates the contaminants and sterilizes the air, it completely removes the odors along with the particles. This means your air will smell cleaner and feel fresher, even if you overlook the improved health benefits.
People like to assume that they don’t need an air purifier. While we’re not going to tell you what you need and what you don’t need, we think this is a silly line of thinking. Nobody needs to wash their hands after using the bathroom, and nobody needs to wear socks and shoes when going on a long walk, but they’re smart ideas that improve the overall comfort and health of your body and home.
It’s time to stop looking at an air purifier as a complete solution that will eliminate every contaminant in your home and start looking at it like the tool that it is. It’s just another piece of effective equipment that can help your home reach its comfort and safety goals.
Increased Awareness of Contaminants
One of the most important aspects of air purification is how noticeable it is. When your air purifier is running, we promise that you’ll notice how different your home’s air feels and smells. This is important because it helps you notice when the air is not safe or clean. This increased awareness will help you detect contaminated environments in the future and help you know when friends and family members with sensitive respiratory systems or asthma are in an unsafe environment.
