Anyone who has ever cleaned their home knows keeping the dust at bay is a never-ending battle.
Not only is it unsightly, but dust can also cause a number of respiratory complications, especially for people with flu symptoms or asthma.
The good news is that there are a number of ways to reduce the amount of dust in your home. One of the most effective is installing an air purifying system. Air purifiers work by circulating the air in your home and traps dust particles with a HEPA filter. Also, many whole-home air purifiers also come with a pre-filter which helps to capture larger particles before they have an opportunity to enter the HEPA filter. Another option is to replace your heating and cooling system with a oil furnace filter or AC filter with a higher MERV rating. These filters are designed to capture smaller particles, and can help improve the overall air quality in your home. Regardless of which choice you opt for, reducing the amount of dust in your home can have a major impact on your health and well-being. I’ve had flu symptoms my whole life, and it wasn’t until a few years ago when I was tested at the doctor’s office that I found out I was highly allergic to dust and pollen. If I didn’t have a whole-home air purifier, I’m sure I would be suffering from even worse flu symptoms, because we have a lot of dust on our road, and a lot of pollen coming from the oak trees.
