Mold can be ingested from the food we eat and also inhaled from the air we breathe into our lungs.
But mold can also be found in our homes floating around in the environment and the air we take in. If you have mold sensitivity or allergies an air purifier can be extremely helpful, if not essential to relieve symptoms.
The majority of mold spores are tiny and can’t be seen by the human eye. So it may not be readily apparent that your home has a household mold problem. Mold spores are microscopic ranging in size from 3-100 microns. This microscopic size means it is important when choosing an air purifier for mold removal to select one that removes 3 micron particulates at a minimum.
As well as causing allergies mold can have other negative health effects such as depressing your immune system and causing infections in those susceptible.
