Removing your flooring can create almost one pound of dust per square foot. Fortunately, Speedy Floor Removal knows just how important air quality is. That’s why we use equipment featuring HEPA Certified Air Cleaners to capture dust unseen to the eye during our removal projects.
You can breathe easier knowing that your flooring project isn’t going to adversely affect you, your family, or your employee’s health. But what about after your floor removal project is completed? Customers often ask us how to keep their air clean routinely.
Lifestyle changes can be the beginning to cleaner air. These changes include:
- Buying a vacuum with HEPA filters and using it often.
- Using high-quality filters with your HVAC system and changing them regularly.
- Washing your bedding and pillow cases often.
- Replacing bed pillows.
- Removing clutter from your home or office.
- Avoid wearing outdoor shoes inside your home.
- Controlling indoor humidity, especially during the brutal Florida summer. The EPA recommends keeping the relative humidity between 30 to 50 percent to inhibit mold growth, dust mites, and cockroaches.
The Benefits of an Air Purifier
For even cleaner air, you should buy and use a quality HEPA Air Purifier cleaner. Using an air purifier helps to remove smoke and allergens from the air, making it easier for you, your family, and your employees to breathe easier. You can get back to enjoying time in your home and your business.
A typical air purifier help captures up to 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. This includes pet dander, pollen, dust, mold, and smoke. Also, these air purifiers capture certain germs and odors, making everyone in your home or office breathe easier.
It’s important to note that filters should be cleaned following each manufacturers recommendations to keep filter replacement costs at a minimum. The average lifetime of the main and 2nd stage filters can range from a few months to over a year.
The Top 5 Best Air Purifiers from 2018
We’ve listed our top five air purifiers below that can be used in many different sized rooms and for any environment. You can choose a small portable unit to purify the air in singular rooms or choose a large, higher priced fixed unit to filter your entire space.
Rabbit Air MinusA2 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier – High Quality, High Price
This air purifier is known for its high quality because it features a state-of-the-art Panasonic brushless motor. It also includes smaller, but still high-quality, components such as foam gaskets on the filters, a magnetic closing mechanism for the latch, and even a pleasant chime. This air purifier goes a long way, making the high price worth it.
Honeywell True HEPA Allergen Remover – Best Value Per Dollar
Consumer Reports rates this air filter extremely high and with good reason! It’s the best and most affordable unit on the market to date. The unit is very simple, very quiet and offers double filtration, credited to the extra thick charcoal filter followed by an extra thick HEPA filter.
AIRMEGA 300 The Smarter Air Purifier – Best Budget Air Purifier
While the Airmega 400 is a larger room appliance, it offers many benefits. It’s quiet, extremely functional, and contains high-quality components. It’s also easy to clean and changing filters is a breeze, making it less work on you. The Airmega Purifier also has a “nighttime mode” for sensitive sleepers. Another mode, smart mode, “reads” the air and filters appropriately. You can turn the “air quality lights” off for nighttime use.
GermGuardian AC4825 3-in-1 Air Purifier – Best Budget Air Purifier for Single Rooms
Overall, this air purifier is a great option while being budget friendly. It features a UV light that kills germs and viruses. If you are a light sleeper, this purifier might not be for you because the max fan setting is loud (air flow wise). The largest unit only covers 335 sq ft., about the size of a single room, making it a good choice if you want to have a portable purifier for a specific area.
Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier – Best Budget for Portable & Compact
For its compact size, the Mighty Air Purifier is loaded with features similar to the GermGuardian. It features a powerful ionizer that kills germs. This purifier also has smart features such as eco mode which prevents the unit from constantly running! Because it’s a smaller unit, it can easily be moved from room to room. You can even take with you when traveling or bring it to work.
