3 Contaminants to Filter Out

Removing air filter from air conditioner, showing dust and debris.

Air filters help to sanitize the air in your home. Every day, we breathe in an untold amount of particles even in controlled environments. Shouldn’t you have a say in what you breathe in?

Filters help pull a lot of unnecessary contaminants from the air in your home. We’re going to list some of the pesky contaminants that can infiltrate your home, but remember to call our team to address your indoor air quality in Stuttgart, AR.

1. Allergens

Allergens create immune responses in people, such as sneezing, coughing, or having uncontrollable watery eyes. Good indoor air filtration pulls allergens out of the air and traps them in the fibers of your air filter.

Depending on which air filter you use, you can pull allergens from the air with high levels of performance (HEPA filters). If you or a loved one suffers from allergies, air purification can help improve their quality of life indoors.

2. Mold

Mold is a dust-like fungus that can irritate your lungs and potentially cause infections. Removing mold from the air is imperative for your health. When removing mold, it’s important to understand the difference between air filtration and air purification.

Air filtration will pull mold particles from the air and trap them within your filter. Air purification works differently. Some homeowners will buy small room air purifiers assuming that it does the same thing. HEPA filters help remove more mold particles from the air than standard filters. You don’t want mold spores wafting through the air.

3. Pet Dander

Pet dander is essentially dead skin particles from a furry animal. Many homes in America have a cat or a dog, both of which can shed this dander. This can act as a particularly stubborn airborne allergen.

Removing pet dander from the air improves your overall air quality and drastically helps those with allergies or sensitivities. If your cat or dog sheds a lot, it’s important to check your filters often for accumulated dust and dander.

Air Filters Also Remove Bad Odors From the Air

Air filtration can also trap bad odors, which may or may not be caused by the contaminants above. If you have dogs and notice a musty smell in your home, that could be the stench of accumulated pet dander.

Dust and small allergens create a stuffy, stale smell in the air. While it may not be particularly odorous, it isn’t inviting. Even without pets or mold issues to consider, air purification helps maintain a nice-smelling home.
