Air Purifiers – The Solution to Your Indoor Air Quality Problems in Greenville, South Carolina
Indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than the air outdoors. Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can have severe negative effects on a population that spends 90% of its time indoors. Common pollutants that contribute to poor air quality, especially in the warmer months, include pesticides, pollen, dust mites, mold, and clogged or poorly maintained cooling systems running the marathon of keeping us all cool. Read on to learn more about IAQ, how to diagnose IAQ problems, and how air purifiers can help.
Signs that May Indicate an Indoor Air Quality Problem
- Your allergies are rearing their ugly head. If you notice new allergies or an increase in symptom severity, such as you are suddenly sneezing, coughing, and your nose is running, this could be a sign of poor IAQ in the home.
- Your home is older. Older homes usually have less advanced ventilation and were made with older, potentially more hazardous materials. This problem can mean dust, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other poor IAQ culprits.
- You are getting sick frequently. Always waking up tired, with a headache, or with a dry and scratchy throat? Do you get short of breath more than you should? If so, you’ll want to rule out poor IAQ as a contributing factor.
- You just moved into a new home. An unknown environment could hold hidden dangers like mold and mildew that aren’t immediately apparent to a new homeowner. Be sure to have an inspector you trust check for indoor pollutants before you settle in.

Air Purifiers – An Overview
What if we told you that, as bad as poor IAQ is for your health, modern technology has rendered this problem moot, with absolutely no hassle to homeowners? Well, we have some good news. That’s exactly what a whole-home air purifier can do. Air purifiers generally use very fine sieves that filter pollutants out of the air. As air enters the purifier, small particles are trapped in the sieve, much like spaghetti is trapped in a strainer while the water flows out. High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are the gold standard for air purifier filters and trap 99.97% of airborne particles on average. Imagine how much easier you’d breathe, both figuratively and literally, if you knew your air was that clean?
