Prevent Dangerous Mold With HEPA

Air filters like HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) can be very effective when it comes to mold prevention in homes and office spaces, etc.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates there are between 50-100 indoor molds that are possibly harmful to our health. Mold, mildew and fungus infestations are sometimes hard to catch, but can be located almost anywhere. They grow in dark and moist areas, and are typically found in corners, ceilings, behind walls, and areas suffering from water damage. We inhale these potentially dangerous spores on a regular basis, and even dead mold can cause health issues.

Common mold-related health problems include asthma, sinusitis, allergic reactions, eczema, and other infections. Many of which can be avoided by engaging in simple mold-preventing practices.

Investing in a HEPA filter is a good starter. These air filters are known to create incredibly purified air, and are commonly used in automotive vehicles, medical facilities, households, airplanes, and any other place that seeks very pure air. Government regulations require any air filter claiming to make high-efficiency particulate air to remove 99.97% of all particles larger than .3 micrometer from the air that passes through the filter.

Other things you can do to prevent mold growth and improve air quality involves monthly cleaning of ceiling fans, improving ventilation in places like the attic, basement, closet and bathroom, and using a dehumidifier in damp areas that are prone to lingering moisture and water damage.
