IQAir HealthPro Plus Helps Family With Mold Concerns
My name is Sue, and I am a proud mother of two wonderful, beautiful daughters: Nichole, who is 10 years old, and Madison, who has just turned 7. My husband Gary and I are in our 40s, and our home is in New Jersey, having moved from Long Island several years ago.
We’re very blessed and are all in exceptional health. We do experience some minor seasonal allergies from time to time but even our ever-shedding cat, Toby, doesn’t cause anyone in the family any breathing problems.
Our home has a basement, which is common in the Northeast and our neighborhood. It is an unfinished basement, and it has always been a little damp ever since we bought the house. We never thought much about it, and most of our neighbors have a similar level of dampness. We did plan to take care of it eventually but figured that it could wait until we remodeled down there.
Recently, however, we began experiencing more moisture than usual and what had been a slight musty odor quickly became much more powerful. I had my husband call a mold specialist as soon as the new smell started, and the technician came in and inspected the entire basement. She told us that the increased moisture wasn’t unusual due to recent weather conditions. She also said that the odor we smelled was due to the presence of mold but that it had apparently been building up down there for quite some time. When she tested, the mold count was 1,500, which is only a moderate level but definitely not something I was comfortable with having, considering there are two young children in the home. The technician removed the mold, dried the basement and even applied some preventive measures. However, she warned that the mold would return naturally and that the best way to combat it was to use an air purifier with a HEPA filter.
A close friend of the family had recently purchased an air purifier for her home because her son has asthma and the doctor had recommended it to reduce the boy’s symptoms. I called her, and she told me that she was very satisfied with her purchase, a model manufactured by IQAir. I called Clean Air Plus. I explained my situation and my friend’s experience, and they recommended the HealthPro Plus model by IQAir. I purchased three of the air purifiers, one for each of the bedrooms. All three units arrived quickly and were delivered directly to my front door in excellent condition. One of my big concerns going into the purchase was difficulty of setup and use, but the Clean Air Plus representative had assured me these were simple, streamlined machines. True to his word, I had all three air purifiers out of the box and up and running within 15 minutes without any help at all.
Our initial goal was just to avoid breathing in any of the mold spores from the basement. As we researched our purchase, however, we began to realize that an air purifier could provide a wide range of health benefits. I must admit that I was a little skeptical about some of the general claims concerning air purifiers. However, after running our air purifiers for just a week, what we’ve experienced is actually quite remarkable. The entire family is sleeping better, and we wake up feeling more rejuvenated. The girls are young, but my husband and I are really feeling the effects, and it is just amazing how much more energy we have throughout the day.
I never considered buying an air purifier for my home until we experienced the mold issue, and now, I couldn’t imagine a home without one. The IQAir HealthPro Plus really is a spectacular machine, and I’m raving about it to anyone who will listen.
I just wanted to write this testimonial to express how satisfied I am and to tell Clean Air Plus that it has earned itself a loyal customer for life. Thank you so very much!
