Spring Clean the Air Within Your Waldorf Home

March 02, 2015

There are a number of way that people react to spring but, the first instinct is to open the windows and doors, letting that fresh air into your Waldorf area home. The next step is spring cleaning your home, from dry cleaning the drapes to Windexing the windows as the spring sun greets you. However, wiping down the surfaces of your home does not clean the really important aspect of your home: the air.

Ensuring the air you breath in your home every day is clean will require more than a dust mitt and vacuum. While a lot of dust lands on surfaces, the majority is still floating in the air, recirculating through the house and HVAC system. The number one way to get your home ”the cleanest” of clean this spring is to purchase an air filtration system.

Choosing the Right Air Filtration System for Your Waldorf Area Home

When it comes to air filtration and purification, there are a growing variety of different options to select from. The majority of HVAC systems have at least a standard filter that will catch the larger particles and remove them from your air. This is a starting point toward clean, fresh air but you need a higher quality filtration system.

There are three basic options when it comes to air filtration: air cleaners and purifiers; 2) media air cleaners and 3) basic air cleaners or filters.

  • Air cleaners and purifiers. The leaders in air cleaning, air cleaners and purifiers can remove the highest percentage of impurities from the air. They are larger, giving the kind of air purity that is expected in a medical environment.
  • Media air cleaners. The middle-grade air filtration system is the media air cleaner. These are still highly effective in removing a high percentage of particles from the air, including dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
  • Basic air filters. The smallest and weakest air filtration option is the basic air filter. These filters will remove larger particles, however let many of the micro allergens pass through and back into the air.

 

The best air filtration systems use HEPA filters, which is the highest standard in air quality. Filters of this caliber can capture the smallest microbes and can eliminate 99.97% of contaminants from the air, leaving behind pure air that is safe and healthy to breathe.

When you think “spring cleaning” this year, make sure you think about your indoor air. To learn more about the air filtration options available for your Waldorf area home, chat with your HVAC specialist at A-PLUS Service Experts to evaluate which option works best for you.
