Springtime is here, and that means irritating, airborne irritants and particles are in the air (among other things). But the quality of the air you’re breathing in your Mobile home doesn’t have to be that way. If you take adequate steps to prepare your home and HVAC system, you can reduce the likelihood of allergies and illnesses developing, and you could even reduce contact with further airborne particles and dust, which will keep you healthier and happier. It all starts with a quality HEPA filter.
Can your HEPA air filter help prevent you from developing an illness? It depends. HEPA filters cannot protect you from a virus. There is also no complete guarantee that any HEPA air filter will take on other illnesses, such as the flu, cold, or allergies. But a quality HEPA filter can increase your odds of not getting sick, when used with well-known best practices.
Based on Center for Disease Control and Prevention studies, industrial-grade air filters are producing positive results when it comes to preventing the spread of contaminants that hover in the air. However, these systems are much more expensive than consumer-grade filters. HEPA filters for the home also continue to improve. There are several tests that have indicated the effectiveness of HEPA filters blocking mold spores, asbestos, odors, smoke and bacteria from your Mobile indoor air. Yet, plenty of airborne diseases or viruses are too small for a HEPA filter to block them from floating in the air of a typical home.
HEPA filters can bring down the prospect of contracting a variety of illnesses associated with repeated exposure to fine particles kicked up from construction and other labor-intensive activities. For instance, if you’re remodeling areas of your space, enjoy a hobby that tends to kick up a lot of dirt or chemicals, or if your home is nearby certain kinds of industries, installing a HEPA filter could keep them from moving throughout your home, thus helping to purify the air quality.
There are other air filtration to determine which option is best for you.
Remember, while a HEPA filter may decrease your probability of contracting common airborne ailments, it is no alternative for proper hygiene and the advice of medical professionals! Keep this information top of mind as you look after your space and family.
