In today’s times we are all spending more time indoors and there are a lot of good options to improve our indoor air. Indoor air is up to 20 times more polluted than outdoor air some of the pollutants include VOC’s which are chemicals basically off gassing in our home like new flooring or scented candles and cleaners. The other air pollutants are dust, pet dander and germs and bacteria. There are three types of air purifiers that do three different functions in providing healthier air in our homes.
