Why You Need An Air Purifier In Your Home This Spring

Why You Need An Air Purifier In Your Home This Spring 

In the spring and summer months in Alabama, the warmer weather can push a lot of people outdoors to play and enjoy the sun. However, that same warm weather also makes us want to spend more time in the air conditioning, and it’s important to make sure that the indoor air is clean and safe to breathe. Learn why you need clean air in your home and why air purifiers are the perfect tool to get the job done this spring.


Although you might not realize it, at all times there are pollutants lurking in your home. During spring time, these air pollutants are even more prevalent with harmful allergens and bacteria invading the outdoor air. While you might not think the outdoor air affects the air you breathe inside your home, it does. You bring in these outdoor allergens on your clothes, shoes, hair, and even your skin, then they infiltrate the air inside your home. Let’s go through just what these airborne pollutants are, and then we will discuss how you can eliminate them.

Pet Dander

If you have a pet such as a dog or cat in the home, it’s very likely that their dander, fur, and other allergens from their coat are all over your home and in the air that you breathe. As pet dander hangs onto surfaces, it easily gets moved around in the air and can lead to asthma attacks and allergy irritation.


Dust is another contaminant that is found in every home. Dust itself is made up of dead skin, pollen, fungal growth, food debris, insects, and dirt; all things you don’t want in your house! Unfortunately, it’s in the air all around us!

Fungal Growth

Fungal growth is another culprit for contaminated air, as a lot of the time you won’t notice that it’s growing in your house. Fungal growth can form easily in the spring with more humidity, stagnant air, and warmer temperatures, and it thrives in warm, wet environments.


Using a fireplace is a great way to heat your home, but it can produce a lot of smoke back into your home if not done correctly. Cooking, cigarettes, and fireplaces are the lead causes of smoke in houses. It can be extremely dangerous to keep lingering smoke inside your home. Inhaling smoke can lead to serious respiratory issues, and having it around in the air can cause irritation and itchiness around your eyes and nose. Overtime, it can even fill your lungs and begin to cause more harmful complications.


Although winter is coming to an end, there’s still a number of bacteria and viruses lingering through the air. While we won’t go into detail about all the things you could catch this time of year, just know, when you think of viruses, they’re never a good thing to be lingering around your home!

Benefits of Air Purifiers
