Do I need a UV Air Purifier?

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Mold inside of air ducts can make you sick!

Flu season is coming up and it’s great to know that the very same technology used in hospitals to keep staff and patients safe is available to you in your own home.

UV Air Purifier

UV light is effective at eliminating living airborne organisms. Namely, viruses, mold and mildew. With the use of germicidal UV light in air purifiers, you not only trap mold spores, you effectively destroy them, keeping the spores from forming new mold.

Symptoms that mold allergies cause include:

  • Cold or flu like symptoms
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Irritated, itchy throat
  • Blocked nose
  • Itchy nose
  • Runny nose
  • Sinus congestion
  • Sinus headaches
  • Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Irritated, itchy skin
  • Skin rash, hives
  • Watery eyes
  • Red, bloodshot eyes
  • Itchy eyes
  • Itchy ears
  • Hair loss, baldness
  • Hay fever symptoms
