During the spring and summer, allergy sufferers retreat to their homes to escape the pollen and other allergens outside that cause symptoms like itchy eyes, running noses and constant sneezing. But, did you know that indoor air can actually be more polluted than outside?
In addition to bringing in pollen on clothes and shoes, the main sources of indoor allergens are things like:
- Pet dander
- Carpet and soft surfaces like couches
- Bedding, mattresses and pillows
- Damp areas such as basements
- Chemicals from off-gassing
Since many houses are built extremely airtight, the best way to clean the air from these contaminants is to install a whole-home air purification system.
While there are many filtration and purification systems, we recommend the iWave for homeowners looking for a maintenance-free unit that breaks down allergens, dust, smoke, mould and viruses into harmless compounds such as oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapour.
Unlike other systems that require homeowners to replace bulbs or cells every few years, the iWave requires absolutely no maintenance, has no replacement parts and self-cleans. Once the system is installed, you can enjoy clean, purified air for years to come.
In laboratory tests, the iWave was able to significantly reduce the number of harmful pathogens in a short amount of time:
- Staph was reduced 96.24% after 30 minutes
- MRSA was reduced 96.24% after 30 minutes
- E. coli was reduced 99.68% after 15 minutes
- Airborne mould spores was reduced 99.5%
