3 Contaminants That an Air Purifier Can Handle

Many people like the idea of having an air purifier in their homes. It’s a nifty new piece of technology that promises it will eliminate contaminants and make your home cleaner, safer, and more comfortable. While those promises all sound great, are they really true?

Well, yes, but we don’t want customers to just take our word for it. You should always do your own research before a large purchase like a whole-house air purifier in New Haven, IN. If it looks like people enjoy having these systems inside their homes, and that they work exceptionally well, then we’d love to help you get one yourself. Our team installs air purifiers regularly for an affordable rate.

Let’s start by talking about the contaminants that these systems treat. Here are 3 specific contaminants that a UV air purifier directly removes, and why they can be a nuisance in your home without one.


Viruses are probably the most commonly talked about type of contaminant these days. With recent outbreaks of the COVID-19 virus and its variants, you’re probably well aware of how it spreads and how it can infect you. Well, the truth is that there are other viruses still out there.

From a household perspective, viruses like the Rhinovirus (the common cold) can be an easy problem for anyone. A UV air purifier can eliminate this virus as it travels through your home, so you don’t need to worry about it anymore.


Mold is an insidious problem. It can cause an infestation in your home which will rot and destroy valuable foundations and components of your house. It will also release more mold spores which, when inhaled or ingested, can cause serious illness or a mold infection.

Many people just associated foul odors and poor home aesthetics with mold, but the truth is that mold is a lot worse than just something that is unappealing. It can be dangerous in some situations, so we urge homeowners to try and remove it from their houses.


From E-Coli to other types of contaminating bacteria, your home could have contaminants around that aren’t necessarily viruses or mold spores. There are many types of bacteria, some of the bacteria that live in your stomach are good bacteria. But the bacteria that hasn’t been cultured in your body and exists outside of it is not very good for you.

While many people think that viruses and mold infestations are worse than bacteria, the truth is that depending on what bacteria is in your home, this isn’t necessarily true. Bacterial infections can still be devastating to your body, and they can even cause long-term side effects if they aren’t treated with the right antibiotics or other treatments. If you feel like you’ve come down with something, even if it’s not a virus, we urge you to see a healthcare professional.

For the future, we want to help homeowners protect their homes with air purifiers that can eliminate bacteria, viruses, and mold spores from the air.
