More Fires on the Horizon—Protect Your Home With an Air Purifier!

Friday, May 31st, 2019

Washington is looking at a busy wildfire season this year. So far, it has already brought 170 fires.

And where there’s fire, there’s smoke!

Just because you’re not directly near the fires doesn’t mean the smoke cannot reach your community. As the CDC notes, this smoke is a mixture of gas and particles that can “Hurt your eyes, irritate your respiratory system, and worsen chronic heart and lung diseases.”

Taking more and more allergy medications certainly can’t be the solution to our allergy issues, right? Yet, here we are buying up them all up year after year.

A better solution would be to eliminate the source of the allergens. “Treat the cause, not the symptom!”

But what if the source of your allergens is your furry companion? After all, the pet dander produced by the family dog or cat is one of the biggest sources of allergens in the home (not to mention the dust they bring in from the outside).

Or, what if the source of the allergens is the location of your home? No reasonable being would uproot their family just because of some seasonal allergies.

That’s where air cleaners come in.
