Although we can’t see all of these pollutants, they are all harmful to residents. Ensuring that your family’s maintaining their health, consider improving the air quality with the right filtration, purification, and ultraviolet light. Avoid these health problems with the right system.

The last thing we want our customers to experience is a sudden illness that could’ve been avoided with the proper prevention. Some of these health effects occur immediately, and other over a period.
What Can Residents Do at Home to Combat Pollutants?
Avoid smoking within your home. The smoke from tobacco or other smoking products can circulate within the home and affect the overall quality of air. Keeping your home tidy will reduce the amount of dust and pollen that lives inside, especially if you have pets. Their hair travels around the house clogging your filters and circulating into the air everyone breathes, and the collection of hair could be detrimental to the quality of air.
Lastly, but certainly not least, is to reduce the amount of humidity in your home. With the humidity levels of Florida soaring through the roof, making sure that it stays on the outside if your home minimizes the amount of moisture your system experiences.
