Air Purifiers for Homes with Mold or Humidity Issues

air purifiers for mould, mildew, humidity issues and water damage

Why You Need an Air Purifier for Mold

If your home is very humid, has a damp basement, suffers from excessive condensation or has water damage due to leaks or flooding, chances are that you may also have a mold or mildew problem. Even if there are no visible signs of mold, it may be hidden on top of ceiling tiles, beneath carpets and under pads, and behind drywall, wallpaper or panelling.

FACT: 30% to 50% of all homes and buildings have damp conditions that may
encourage the development of mold

Molds can be harmful in many different ways. First, they produce allergens in the form of mold spores that can cause allergic reactions or trigger asthma attacks. Incredibly, a patch of mold the size of a quarter can contain over 10,000 spores. These spores become airborne when disturbed, and can be spread throughout the house by the heating/ventilation system. Molds also release microbial volatile organic compounds (mVOCs) directly into the air that can cause headaches, dizziness, fatigue and nausea. These mVOCs are responsible for the characteristically "musty" smell of molds.

In addition, several types of mold are toxic, including aspergillus and stachybotrys (black mold), which are often found in water-damaged homes. These molds can produce potent mycotoxins that are among the most toxic of all natural chemicals – in fact, stachybotrys toxins are used by the US military in biological warfare. Chronic inhalation of mold mycotoxins can cause severe long-term health problems including neurological damage, suppression of the immune system, liver damage and cancer. Given their 1-2-3 punch (allergens, mVOCs and mycotoxins), it is no wonder that many consider mold to be β€œthe new asbestos.”

FACT: Infants born during mold season are three times more likely to
develop early symptoms of asthma
