Spring Cleaning Your Air
The days are finally starting to get a little warmer, and beginning this past weekend, they will also start to feel a little longer thanks to Daylight Saving Time. For many, this means thinking about the annual tradition of Spring Cleaning. Sometimes loved, sometimes hated, this activity takes place every March or April. The history behind Spring Cleaning began when homes were heated by fire and doors were kept shut to keep cold air out and warm air in. As soot, smoke, and dust filled the indoor air and covered every surface, a deep cleaning became inevitable.
Our advancement in home heating has definitely helped the indoor environment, and our indoor environmental issues have changed over time, but the tradition of Spring Cleaning lives on. Keeping our homes clean and healthy is not a fad, it’s a lifestyle. While it’s easy to focus on clutter, dirt, and visible stains around the home, how many of us consider the cleanliness of the air inside our home or have a clear strategy to improve it?
While we might not have the same indoor air pollution from wood-burning fireplaces or dirt-covered boots and clothes, we do still suffer from many forms of indoor air pollution. In addition, our energy-efficient homes are airtight, keeping pollutants locked in, which causes ample opportunity for bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew, dander, allergens, and chemical off-gassing to wreak havoc on our health and our family’s health. This effect is called Sick Building Syndrome and is prevalent in homes and buildings today.
pureAir products are the perfect solution for indoor air cleaning. We offer air purifiers for every shape and size home, and finding the right purifier for your space will be the easiest step in your Spring Cleaning routine. Ranging from small spot-cleaning purifiers to large whole-home purifiers, your home will have fresh, clean air to go along with your beautifully cleaned rooms!
pureAir purifiers use active air purification, which is very different from typical air purifiers that use filters, most commonly HEPA filters. Filters require all of the air in the room to go through the filter to be cleaned. In addition, most are only rated to clean large particles. Many air pollutants, including bacteria and viruses, are smaller particles that still pass through filters.
Active air purifiers propel air into your room to kill and destroy bacteria, viruses, allergens, mold, odors, smoke, and volatile organic compounds that exist in the air and on the surfaces of your home. You heard that right – pureAir purifiers not only clean the air – they also disinfect and sanitize the surfaces in your home, from floors to counters, doorknobs to handrails, and more!
This all makes pureAir’s active air purification so much more effective than traditional air filters! The difference can be noticed immediately upon turning on your purifier. The room will smell better, you will notice far fewer particles flying through the air as the sun shines in, and bacteria and viruses that cause sickness will be zapped immediately, leaving your home a much healthier, happier place to be.
Another terrific benefit of pureAir is the compact nature of our purifiers. We don’t use filters that have to capture all of the air in your room, so our purifiers can be small enough to fit into your home decor and design. Most of our purifiers sit conveniently atop a high shelf or on a table. We even have one that fits snugly on your wall outlet! In addition, the active air purification requires far less energy than HEPA purifiers, so you will save energy and money while keeping your home fresh and clean.
If you’re looking for a small purifier to try before you commit to our whole-home option, then pureAir 50 is exactly what you’re looking for. It fits right into your electrical outlet and will purify up to 250 square feet of space. It’s great at removing tough odors, so its best spaces are bathrooms, pet areas like beds or litter boxes, or maybe a front entrance where all of your family’s shoes reside.
Next up is pureAir 500, our large room purifier that purifies anything up to 850 square feet. It sits nicely on a tabletop and is beautifully designed to blend in with your home decor. It offers basic purification for those normal days as well as a 30-minute mode for that deep cleaning that you want to be done while you’re away.
If you’re looking for something for larger spaces, we offer two different whole-home models. The first is pureAir 1500, which purifies spaces up to 1,500 square feet, perfect for a smaller home, apartment, or maybe one level of a larger home. Or you can go with our largest model, pureAir 3000, which purifies spaces up to 3,000 square feet. Both pureAir 1500 and pureAir 3000 offer scalable purification, which means you can adjust the purifier settings to your unique preferences. Or, if you want that deep cleaning, just use the Away Mode while you’re away on errands, at work, or at school.
For some more specific purification needs, we offer 2 unique purifiers for a specific cleaning job. pureAir FRIDGE is our refrigerator purifier to keep your food fresh longer and your fridge smelling clean. It’s powered by a lithium-ion battery that lasts 3 weeks between charges and is smaller than an apple for convenient placement in your fridge! pureAir SPORT is your go-to portable purifier for those yucky, smelly spaces that need a little added boost of purification. Closets, bags, coolers, cupboards, or even cars can smell fresh and clean within just a couple of hours when you place pureAir SPORT inside. It’s also powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and it’s built for durability to last!
As you’re checking off your Spring Cleaning list this spring, don’t forget one of the most important steps – the air you breathe! pureAir makes checking this task off the list so quick and easy, it’ll leave you wondering how you ever lived without it!
