Like a breath of fresh air…
Did you know that…
The air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. – Environmental Protection Agency
Air pollution is a major cause of lung disease… which is the third leading cause of death in the United States – American Lung Association
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ranked indoor air pollution fourth in cancer risks among the 13 top environmental problems analyzed. California Air Resources Board
Our air quality is a deteriorating resource. The quality of our indoor air presents a significant health risk especially when you consider the amount of time that we spend indoors. In addition to the outdoor contaminants that come into our homes and offices we have to consider things like off-gassing from paint, furniture, insulation, glues, cleaners, solvents, dust, molds, mildews and on and on.
Reducing indoor contaminants can have a dramatic effect on improving quality of life.
Air purification has become vital to maintaining optimum health. HEPA filters have been known for some time as the gold standard in purification. HEPA filtration is rated at 99.97% efficiency on removing “fine particles” – particle sizes as small as 0.3 microns.
However our environment is being invaded by “ultra-fine particles”, which outnumber fine particles exponentially. These are particles so fine that HEPA does not trap them, the lining of our lungs don’t trap them. Even our cell walls do not trap them. New technology is now required. And here it is!
Ultra low penetration air or ULPA technology provides 99.9995% removal of “ultra-fine particles” – particles as small as 0.12 microns. The only product that I know of that incorporates this technology is Nikken’s KenkoAir filtration system. No other filtration system matches this level of performance.
Along with purifying the air, these system introduce negative ions into the environment. Negative ions appear to contribute to positive changes in mood, focus and behavior.
