Let Me tell you a thing or two about mortal kombat. When I first moved into our modern rental home, I noticed quite a musty aroma in the air; I wrote it off as the arena not having been officially cleaned in recent history–it had sat abandoned for over more than five weeks–and I certainly figured I could just deal with it accordingly. It was one month in, I started having breathing concerns. Friends and co-workers of mine had begun to point out that I was coughing a lot. I thought I was simply falling ill with cold, but our friends pointed out that I had had the cough for quite a while, at least well over a week. I finally caved and looked into our indoor air pollen levels at that point, and tried scrubbing down our family room once again. It wasn’t until I finally had to grab our iPhone out from under our bed a single night, that I accidentally spotted mold growing on our wooden bed frame, and the next morning I took apart the bed, scrubbed down everything, and even found mold growing all over our walls! My lake house doesn’t have central air conditioning or an Heating and A/C system, so immediately I purchased a dehumidifier and a modern UV air purifier. I took care to purchase a newer model that included the use of a HEPA air filter. The UV air purifier then works to trap the mold molecules, which stops the mold from being able to readily attach to surfaces and reproduce. The dehumidifier works in tandem with the system to dry out the air, so mold has nowhere to live, air purification devices can even include a specialized type of light that works to destroy bacteria completely; this is the same air cleaning technology hospitals use. Immediately, after making these changes, our breathing concerns went away. I’m so grateful for our air cleaner; it’s probably the best investment for our overall health that I’ve ever made.
