An air scrubber is an advanced purifying device that can clean the air inside a building by collecting and removing pollutants. Below are some of the ways it helps improve your home’s indoor air quality in Lavallette, NJ.
Use of HEPA Filters
HEPA filters are a central element in certain air scrubbers. They trap pollutants in the air and remove them from the circulating air. The trapped pollutants include pollen, pet dander, spores, and dust mites.
HEPA filters have a fine mesh that catches these contaminants and prevents them from passing through. We suggest that you replace your HEPA filters once every few months, depending on how dirty your filter gets.
Air scrubbers don’t just purify the air. They help control indoor smells by removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that cause odors. VOCs are common chemicals released into the indoor air from various sources such as floors, carpets, and furniture.
Odor-causing contaminants include formaldehyde and benzene, which are contained in adhesives, glue, and paint. By removing these contaminants, air scrubbers also help reduce the chance of irritation to the people inside a building.
Harmful chemicals that cause odors in indoor air might also come from other sources, such as cleaning products. Air scrubbers can help neutralize the odors caused by these chemicals. Our professionals can help you determine the ideal air scrubber for your needs.
Getting Rid of Pathogens
The air inside just about any building has contaminants like viruses, bacteria, and other biological pollutants. The air scrubber helps remove germs and other harmful microorganisms from indoor air. This can help prevent harmful diseases that can result from these pathogens.
