While we cannot make any claims that using these products will help protect you from contracting viruses like COVID-19 or the flu, we can guarantee that these items will help you create a healthier environment in your home.
First things first, change your air filter! Your home’s air filter is one of the easiest ways you can help rid your air of airborne contaminates. A MERV 13 air filter can catch contaminates as small as 0.3 microns.
There are also a few technologies that are great at killing airborne contaminants including bacteria:
- HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air)
- Ultraviolet Light Technology
HEPA technology can trap most bacteria and pathogens in the air.
