Can an Air Purifier Eliminate Mold Spores?
Using an air purifier to eliminate mold spores in your home can actually help. Mold and mildew can make for some pretty uncomfortable conditions in your Phoenix home and can also affect the value. Being one of the biggest investments, doing everything you can to preserve the value is key. Utilizing an air purifier or air filtration system can help you eliminate mold spores before they are able to spread.
Mold Can Grow Anywhere
Mold spores are microscopic and easily reproduce when they float on the currents of air. If you see a spot in your home that has mold growth, you can be sure that mold spores are constantly attempting to travel those air currents in order to grow elsewhere. Take a good look throughout your home and check for any mold growth. Look closely at places that have wet spots like bathrooms, kitchens, attics crawlspaces and garages.
Air Filtration Systems Catch Mold Spores
Stopping mold spores from spreading to other moist surfaces is ideal, making it easier to stop mold growth elsewhere. Not all air purifiers function the same, so when looking to purchase a new one, find one with a HEPA filter. The HEPA filter is made specifically to capture the microscopic mold spores, removing them from the air.
Some filtration systems work better on mold than others so when eliminating mold spores use the advances of technology available today. Some purifiers come with a sensor that will alert when mold is detected automatically starts catching the mold spores in the air.
