If you or someone you live or work along side and share space with, has asthma, a cold or the flu, the air in your home or office can easily spread bacteria, germs and viruses to you and others.
Indoor air pollution is particularly risky for elderly persons, since it can aggravate respiratory ailments.
Children, especially those with asthma or allergies, can suffer long term effects from not getting a healthy night sleep. There are a number of people with sensitivities to many chemicals.
Poor school performance can be due to too many sick days and / or a limited attention span.You have heard that second hand smoke can cause lung cancer - but short term effects include increased respiratory and heart-rates, higher blood pressure, loss of appetite and confusion.
A recent study involving air samples from over 50,000 locations in North America found that nearly 97% of homes had an issue with indoor air quality. In 70% of those homes the problem was airborne chemicals.
As consumers, we wouldn't buy a vacuum that only removed one, very specific kind of dirt, nor should we buy an air purifier that removes only one specific type of indoor air pollution.
To truly purify your air, an air purifier needs to remove dangerous airborne chemicals, gases and odors as well as common particles.
AllerAir air purifiers offer more filtration media than any other manufacturer. The home and office air purifiers recommended below offer superior cleaning of airborne chemicals, gases, odors and will remove at least 99.97% of all airborne particles at 0.3 microns.

Is Dust Dangerous ?Dust in itself never used to be a red flag, since it was literally everywhere. In some instances, however, dust can become a health concern:
- When people develop a sensitivity to dust particles (indoor allergy, especially to dust mite particles)
- When the dust contains tiny particles that are harmful to human health (e.g. silica dust, asbestos fibers or heavy metals). Studies have also found significant amounts of arsenic and DDT.
- When contaminants such as bacteria or viruses attach themselves to dust particles and become an exposure hazard
- When dust contains remnants of household chemicals or flame retardants
- If you have a baby: Infants and toddlers are the most susceptible to dust because they spend more time close to the ground, where dust settles or stirs. Crawling children who transfer things from hands to mouth may ingest 10 grams of dust per day.
- When dust contains toxins from cigarette smoke or other pollution sources
Dust and pet allergies- dust mites, animal / pet dander, seasonal allergies, pollen, mold spores, MCS or multiple chemical sensitivity issues, cigarette, cigar smoke odors, and other indoor air related issues (particulate matter or chemical gas / fumes / odor related problems) can be helped with the use of one or a combination of our air filtration, air cleaner, air purifier products. | home & office products |

How to Remove Dust and Breathe Clean AirAnyone living in a house or apartment or working in an office, knows about the inevitability of dust. No matter how much you clean, in a matter of days or even hours, you will see dust particles dancing in the air with a veil of film collecting on surfaces throughout your home.
As a former afterthought to toxic chemicals in the realm of indoor air contaminants, dust has earned a bad reputation, all in its tiny self, as studies point to inherent dangers of the organic and inorganic particles you are exposed to.
Household dust varies in its composition and can be quite different from one home to the next. It is most often comprised of from particles blowing in through doors and windows as well from dirt and substances brought inside when entering the home. Skin cells, pet dander, fibers from household carpets and fabrics also contribute to the dust count. Then there is food debris, kitchen grease, lint, paint particles, pesticides, decomposing insects and soot. The list could carry on.
The amount of dust is also dependent on the number of people present and their activities. Whenever you are entering a room and doing something, you are likely to shed cells and increase the dust count in that room. That is why dust is worse in rooms that are used most often.
Dust particles are measured by the micron (one micron equals 1/25,400 of an inch). The dust that you can see is about 10 microns in diameter. Those are the big particles. The more dangerous type of dust, the tiny particle that can lodge in your lungs and wreak havoc, is about .3 micron in size. In comparison, a sharp pencil dot is about 200 microns in diameter.

multi-stage filtration process |
About HEPA FiltersHEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air filter and describes a filter that can remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns in diameter. Particles of this size are used to evaluate the performance of a filter because they are among the most difficult to remove. However, particles that are larger or smaller than 0.3 microns can be filtered with even greater efficiency due to the nature of the filter’s design. True HEPA filters are composed of a dense web of fibers designed to trap particles. This type of filter was first used in the 1940’s to trap radioactive contaminants in the air and protect scientists who were developing the first nuclear weapons. Today, HEPA is considered the safest and most efficient method to treat airborne particles. | multi-stage filtration process |
