Homes across the US frequently have issues with indoor air quality. Because modern houses are designed to prevent loss or gain of heat through open areas, there’s little chance for fresh air circulation to clean out the concentration of indoor contaminants.
Here in Tampa Bay, one of the biggest indoor air quality challenges we face is organic pollutants. Our high humidity makes it easy for mold to develop in parts of our homes, and it also creates a fertile environment for microbes and viruses. Proper humidity control can help alleviate the source of the problem, but when it comes to cleaning these harmful spores and microbes from the air, the best solution is UV lights, a.k.a. UV air purifiers.
