    Every home faces foul-smelling or pollen-filled air at some time or other.  While these are annoying facts of life, they aren’t necessarily unhealthy (foul smells can be a symptom of something dangerous and an allergy to pollen can lead to health issues if not taken care of).  Modern air filters and regular cleaning will help alleviate many of these problems.

    June 6th, 2017
    Indoor air quality and air pollution are hot topics for homeowners.  In many homes, the quality of air inside (where we spend most of our time) is worse than the air in the surrounding neighborhood.  This is because building materials, mold, and even skin cells and pet dander accumulate and get recirculated throughout the home.  While air filters help to
