Wildfires, Toxic Gasses and VOC’s, Oh My! How Do I Breathe Clean Air?

Wildfires, Toxic Gasses and VOC’s, Oh My!  How Do I Breathe Clean Air?
The need for clean air at home has never been more important.  With wildfires raging in our home state and the air quality plummeting, it’s genuinely a big deal.  But we also had been living in a house with mold for months and suffering for it.  My autoimmune was flaring, we were sick more this year than ever, my one child with healthy lungs developed asthma and we had a host of seemingly random but certainly mold related problems including insomnia, acne and hot flashes (even the kids).  I had been waiting and knowing I needed to pick up at least one high quality air filter but didn’t have the proof until my husband had to remove a toilet to dig out a spoon (yep.) and found black mold.  A few hours later he had the whole bathroom demolished to the studs and ended up having to cut out the subfloor… it was that bad.
After a bunch of research, I bought from AirDoctor. AirDoctor is a powerful, professional quality air purifier that filters out all the bad stuff you don’t want to be breathing in.  We have one AirDoctor 3000 that covers our downstairs main living spaces, and then one in each of our bedrooms (AirDoctor 2000 & two 1000’s).  Since we purchased these we have slept better, woken up without congestion, been sick less and frankly the air is distinctly cleaner smelling.  They have been working overtime with the air quality outside what it is but they have been well worth it.  I purchased ours with Affirm, so I could pay them off over 6 months without interest.
AirDoctor is different from other purifiers because it not only captures the smallest most dangerous particles like smoke, bacteria and viruses, but it also captures toxic gases and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)– some of the most common forms of indoor air pollution.
  • AirDoctor’s UltraHEPA Filter has been independently tested to capture 100% of airborne particles at 0.003 microns in size—that’s 100 times more effective than HEPA
  • AirDoctor also has a substantial activated Carbon VOC Filter that captures toxic gasses like formaldehyde, ozone, and off-gassing from furniture.
  • AirDoctor has also been tested by a third-party lab and proven to remove 99.99% of a range of tested bacteria and viruses, including H1N1. AirDoctor recently announced the results of independent laboratory testing which proved that their UltraHEPA air purification technology removes 99.97% of the COVID-19 virus, SARS-CoV-2, from the air.  The research was conducted by MRI Global, an independent, not-for-profit research organization. You can read more about the results here: AirDoctor’s UltraHEPA Air Purification Technology Effectively Removes Live SARS-CoV-2 Virus from Air.
AirDoctor also has great features like a professional-grade Air Quality sensor and Auto mode setting that detects the air in the room and automatically adjusts the filtration levels. It has an Auto mode 24/7 to give you the peace of mind knowing your air is as clean possible around the clock.
You can pick their classic AirDoctor purifier that works for any room in the home, their AirDoctor Compact purifiers that are perfect for smaller spaces like nurseries, kids’ rooms, or home offices, or bundle of the two for an even more savings!  They even offer affordable monthly payment plans with Affirm.*
*Affirm is not available in Iowa, West Virginia, and Canada.
Improving the air quality in your home is just one more way to promote the health and wellness of your whole family and keep your lungs healthy and happy through the fall and holiday season.
Wishing you health and happiness,
