Did you know how closely tied your indoor air quality is to the overall health of your home? It’s true—HVAC filters are rarely enough to fully clean the air in South Jersey homes, especially for those who suffer from allergies or asthma, and people who are sensitive to odors and smells.
If you’re not certain whether you’d benefit from home air purification, filtration, or both, the trusted Bovio Rubino Service team has put together a list of things to look out for so you can keep your family safe and healthy.
1. Allergy-like Symptoms
Noticing that your allergies are worse inside your home than anywhere else? Sneezing, a runny nose, and itchy eyes could be signs you need an air purifier in your home. The pros at Bovio Rubino offer a variety of models to choose from, including the Performance™ Series Air Purifier, which is a budget-friendly option that fits narrow installation spaces from apartments in Absecon to homes in Haddonfield.
2. Persistent Odors
Dealing with a mildew smell in your home? Or maybe the air from your HVAC smells like stinky socks? As much as it can be difficult to find the source of an unpleasant, musty odor, it’s important to resolve the issue quickly for the sake of your and your loved ones’ health.
It might be tempting to simply open windows for ventilation, but doing so is more of a Band-Aid fix than a solution. Let’s compare ventilation vs. purification. Ventilation replaces your home’s air with fresh outdoor air. Purification, with proven systems like the Infinity® Series Air Purifier, prevents mold growth in the first place by using Capture and Kills™ technology to annihilate airborne pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and mold before they get comfortable and infect your home.
Mold or mildew and their resulting smells are not uncommon, and they can be easily resolved by ensuring that your HVAC is clean with routine duct cleaning, and by adding air purification or filtration to your home.
3. Excessive Amounts of Dust
Does it feel as though every time you finish vacuuming or dusting there’s a fresh coating of fuzz or pollen on every surface in your home? This level of dust can cause allergic reactions, runny noses, and hay fever symptoms despite regular deep cleaning. Adding air filtration and purification to your home can reduce the amount of dust in your air, and help you breathe easy at home again.
4. High Humidity at Home
Do you have a sticky, humid home even when your windows are closed and your HVAC system has been running for hours? Though high home humidity can be caused by normal household chores and activities like showers and cooking, you shouldn’t have to suffer through the discomfort. Adding a dehumidifier to your home with Bovio Rubino Service is a simple solution that can help keep your home’s humidity at comfortable levels year-round.
5. Signs of Mold Growth
Whether or not you have elevated humidity levels at home, particularly damp environments like basements are naturally prone to mold. If there’s mold growing in your home, it can affect the quality of your home’s air all the way up to your attic!
If you spot mold, you can try using a household cleaning agent to get rid of it, but be sure the area isn’t exposed to a consistent leak or standing water. Once you’re done cleaning, check the area periodically to ensure that you’ve resolved the problem. If the mold returns within days, weeks, or even a month, we recommend scheduling a home dehumidification consultation ASAP to avoid breathing moldy air a moment longer than you have to.
6. You Have Pets
We couldn’t be bigger fans of our furry friends! We also know that having them around means we have to take extra care to keep our homes clean given the fur and dander that they spread around. Many homeowners and their families have mild to moderate sensitivities to pet dander that can be all but resolved with indoor air quality services from the pros at Bovio Rubino Service.
7. Trouble Sleeping
Have you experienced new or unusual sleeplessness? Household dampness and mold have the potential to affect your sleep, causing symptoms like:
- Low to moderate sleeplessness
- Difficulty staying asleep
- Early morning awakening
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
If any of these sound familiar, you’d likely benefit from adding air filtration to boost your indoor air quality in your Cherry Hill home.
