What is an Air Scrubber and Why Your Home Needs One This Holiday Season?

The holidays are always the most wonderful time of year; even this year when everything is different. No matter how the holidays may change, we’re still observing some special holiday traditions. Between cooking a delicious meal for the immediate family, picking out presents for your favorites, or lighting a favorite scented candle, the holidays are still magical. Why not put your home on the holiday gift list this year and invest in an air scrubber? Today, we’re sharing what an air scrubber is and why your home could benefit from one this holiday season.

What is an Air Scrubber?

An air scrubber is a device that purifies air with UV light technology. The UV lights in air scrubbers are made to target very specific types of airborne contaminates, specifically bacteria, viruses, and airborne microbes. These lights use the same UV rays that can cause sunburn, but at a much higher level. As treated air passes by, the concentrated wavelengths essentially zap the pathogens that cause some bacteria and viruses and airborne mold particles.

Air Scrubbers Eliminate Any Hidden Viruses and Bacteria

We’ve always been worried about the health and safety of everyone in our home. That concern feels amplified right now. By using the UV lights mentioned above, air scrubbers can eliminate 90% of airborne pathogens, including: E. Coli, Listeria, Staph, Strep, Hep A, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, and MRSA. The air scrubber is lab tested so you can be sure your family is breathing in safe, healthy air.

Defeat Indoor Air Pollution

The air in your home can be two to five times dirtier than the air outside, according to the EPA. From cleaning supplies, to beauty products, they’re all contributing to your indoor air pollution. Certain beauty and cleaning products can release chemicals into your indoor air. The same can be said for air fresheners and scented candles. An air scrubber can clean the air from chemicals and pollution from common household items.

Air Scrubbers Make Dusting More Efficient Than Ever

An extra benefit of the air scrubber is that it makes dusting easier. When air passes through the air scrubber’s UV light, it sparks a catalytic process that generates ions. These ions will clump dust particles together, making them heavier than normal. As the dust particles clump together, they are too heavy for the air and fall onto the floor or other surfaces. Making dust easier to see, clean, and get rid of.

Clear All Cooking Smells

There are few things in this world better than the smell of Thanksgiving dinner. But what about waking up and still smelling it? An air scrubber can eliminate this problem for you. As the UV lights purify your home of bacteria, viruses, and other air contaminants, it also helps to break down strong smells. The air scrubber isn’t only for Thanksgiving though. It works excellently on unpleasant odors from your pets or children.
