Mold

Mold, a fungus commonly found both indoors and outdoors, thrives under specific conditions. These conditions include moderate temperatures, nutrient availability, and moisture. Excessive moisture in your home can lead to mold growth, posing hazards to health. Symptoms of mold exposure may include coughing, runny nose, wheezing, and sore throat, with exacerbation for those with asthma or allergies. To mitigate mold, consider installing exhaust fans in moisture-prone areas, venting appliances, insulating water pipes, and minimizing humidifier usage. Maintaining indoor humidity levels between 20-40% in winter and below 60% year-round is ideal. For optimal results, consider the Pristine Air UVC Germicidal unit, harnessing the sun's UVC rays to naturally disinfect air without chemicals.

Mold & Allergy Solutions

Particles

Indoor air pollutants, such as dust, dust mite feces, dander, pollen, and combustion byproducts, pose health risks. Symptoms of contaminated air include congestion, sneezing, headaches, and exacerbated allergies. Indoor pollutant levels can far exceed outdoor levels, accelerating building deterioration. The Pristine Air Polarized Media Air Cleaner effectively captures airborne particles, while the Pristine Air Bypass HEPA system complements it for severe asthma or allergy sufferers.

Gases

As warmer months approach, odors, chemicals, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can affect indoor air quality, leading to various health issues and equipment damage. The Pristine Air UVC/UVV Oxidizing system utilizes UVC and UVV rays to disinfect and deodorize air without additional chemicals.

Your Overall Health

Establishing an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) plan can prevent costly repairs and improve health. Assessing ventilation and using a whole-house filtration system with appropriate Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) ratings can significantly enhance indoor air quality. Consulting an Indoor Air Quality Specialist before changing filters ensures optimal airflow and filtration efficiency.
