Home Air Can Be 100x More Polluted Than Outside Air

November 12, 2019

Have you heard of Linda Cobb, the Queen of Clean? You may have seen her on Oprah, The Today Show, or on the DIY Network, where she teaches ordinary, busy people “cleaning hacks”!

However, there’s a big difference between cleaning hacks that can save you time, and cleaning hacks that can save your health, like an air purification system.

If you’re noticing watery eyes, a scratchy throat, headaches, and being tired all the time... and your symptoms are actually better once you go outside... it’s possible that germs in your home are making you sick!

Indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air.

If you’re noticing other signs of polluted air, too, like:

  • moisture condensing on your windows
  • an air filter that gets dirty fast
  • the number one indicator, gross odors…

You may have an indoor air quality problem.

Indoor Air Quality Dangers

Indoor air quality can actually increase your risk of heart attacks or cancer, because in addition to low-level threats like dust, pet dander, and particles from insects, there’s also the threat of viruses and bacteria. This isn’t just conjecture; it comes straight from the EPA’s decade-long study linking air pollution and heart disease.

Air Scrubbers Clean 24/7

Linda Cobb highly recommends the Air Scrubber to purify your home's air. This model, by Captura, is more advanced and based in cutting-edge science than other air purifiers.

The typical air purifier uses fans to pull air through air filters. While this is an effective way of trapping dust and pollen, it can only remove some of the percentage of airborne viruses and bacteria. One problem is that air purifiers are rated according to the “CADR,” or “Clean Air Delivery Rate,” standard, which is outdated. This standard was created in the 1980s, and it rates an air purifier’s speed, instead of the quality of the resulting air!

So, some of the most expensive air purification systems on the market that passed the “CADR” test may not even be able to do the job.

In contrast, the Air Scrubber uses germicidal light wave technology, and generates molecules of hydrogen and oxygen to bind with/remove dangerous microorganisms.

Most of us don’t have time to constantly keep every surface of our home clean. Even if we did, there is no way to completely get rid of airborne contaminants on our own. That’s where the Air Scrubber comes in ­– doing your cleaning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
