AIR PURIFICATION AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Indoor air quality is the effects of indoor air on the health and
well being of individuals. Americans spend up to 90% of their time
indoors, and the EPA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety
and Health and others, show indoor air pollutant levels may be 10
to 100 times higher then outdoors.
Are you experiencing any symptoms
of poor indoor air quality, such as headaches, fatigue, eye and
skin irritations, asthma, dizziness, sinus infections, colds, flu
and viruses? Indoor air quality affects everyone, but most especially
children, the elderly and the over sixty million (60,000,00) people
who suffer from allergies, asthma and other respiratory ailments.
Indoor air quality is negatively affected by dust mites, pet dander,
pollens, insecticides, automotive emissions, smoke, dust, household
chemicals, burning foods, formaldehyde and other VOC's (Volatile
Organic Compounds); commonly found in carpeting, furniture and office
supplies and equipment. Most of these particles can't be seen by
the naked eye and are not removed by typical heating and air conditioning
system filters. Millions of invisible microorganisms and odors can
be present and circulated throughout your home. There are three
main types of air pollutants:
1.Particulates which are can be effectively removed by filtration;
2.Microbes which can be controlled with ultraviolet; and
3.Gases, odors, mold, fungus and mildew can be eliminated by photolysis.
Questions that you need to ask are:
- Does anyone suffer from allergies or asthma?
- Is smoking allowed in the home?
- Are there any pets in the home?
- Does dust accumulate quickly?
- Do you get sick frequently?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you may have microbial
contaminants polluting the air in your home. Advent Duct Cleaning,

the air you breathe!
