If you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering: ‘Is an air purifier good for me? Does it keep me safe from all indoor air pollutants? Is it really worth the investment?’ Today, learn about the good, the bad and…the sandy of using an air purifier in Australia. Take a deep breath and read on!
Close your eyes and imagine living in a suburb up on a hill or by the sea, breathing in fresh air coming from the clean breeze that blows over the sea. What a bliss, isn’t it? In theory, you would breathe in the same air in your home, right? Wrong!
You may not know it but, besides the outdoor surroundings, your indoor air quality depends on multiple factors. In fact, homes are generally busy, crowded places; they host people, pets, furniture and many other material goods. So, you basically breathe in everything from dust particles, mould, pollen, pet dander to airborne chemicals. And this is when we have to face the fact: according to CAWCR (Collaboration for Australian Weather and Climate Research), the air in your home can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside.
So, could an air purifier solve this problem once and for all?
