#4 Removes harmful indoor chemicals in the air.
There might be harmful chemicals in the air inside your home that are slowly killing you without you even knowing it. One of them is Radon. It is a naturally occurring gas that comes from decaying uranium in rocks and soils. It is colorless and odorless, and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer. According to studies, 1 out of 15 households in the US has a Radon level that needs to be reduced.
Another harmful chemical in the air is asbestos. If you are living in an old house or building that was built back before the 1980s, you could be in danger of asbestos poisoning. It is a mineral fiber that occurs naturally in rocks.
Most old houses are built with materials that have asbestos in them like tiles, textured paint, patching compounds, and other building materials. Being exposed to Asbestos particles in the air can lead to many lung diseases.
Air purifiers can remove both Radon and asbestos particles in the air, thanks to the HEPA filter that traps the chemicals and clears the air.
