Mold and Airborne Pathogens
Air purifiers with a HEPA air filter help immediately to remove mold spores and airborne pathogens in your home. A HEPA filter traps nearly all particulates in your indoor air, and it can significantly reduce symptoms for those with asthma and other conditions. Using an air purifier year-round is good advice, and an air purifier is one of the most important steps you can take in situations where water damage has occurred. With such conditions, there can be a tremendous amount of pollution and contaminants introduced into the air. A HEPA filter removes 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns and larger which include mold spores, dust, pollen, airborne pathogens and bacteria.
