A reassuring feature of how Austin Air Systems Limited from Buffalo, New York conducts its business is that they stick to facts and tend to avoid exaggerated claims. Michael Doman, the company's Sales Manager makes no effort to conceal the fact that his company's air purifiers do their job best after you have had experts remove visible parts of moulds. Air purifiers have the important role of trapping spores in their filters. This action keeps fungi from entering in to our respiratory systems and from resurfacing in the home. How do air purifiers help in controlling the spread of moulds which essentially remain adhered to surfaces?


The California Department of Health Services explains that any organic material and moisture suffices for moulds (sometimes spelt as 'molds') to grow. Leaves, paper, wood and even dirt is good enough for these microorganisms-called fungi in technical terms-to spread in a home or any indoor space. Moulds feed on the organic surface on which they build their colonies, and some fungi are even aggressive enough to grow on other moulds! Needless to say, they would love to get in to our respiratory systems and have a ball in our lungs! It is common for fungi to make homes on human skin, causing us to itch in most embarrassing manner! Fungal diseases can be very difficult to eradicate once they find entrance in to our bodies.




The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has done a lot of work in the New Orleans area of late as you might well imagine, and guess what they found in the midst of all that water! The NRDC explains that moulds release spores, which get air borne and then enter human lungs. They are capable of causing the most intractable respiratory diseases. Air purifiers have big roles to play in damp homes and especially their dark corners, for it is in such places that fungi thrive. Once specialists use cleaning agents and chemicals to eradicate the mould colonies, the indoor air becomes thick with spores which we cannot see with the unaided eye. That is why Michael Doman of Austin Air Systems advises his clients to make sure that air purifiers are in place to catch the spores once cleaning crews start removing moulds. You can remove moulds on your own if you know which cleaning agents and fungicides to use and how to apply them correctly and safely. Flannigan, in a technical book on microbes in the home, has explained that early summer and autumn are favorite times for spores and filaments from outdoor fungi to enter and settle in homes. Remnants of colonies may lurk inside your house for the entire year, posing an unremitting risk for everyone's breathing and skin wellness. You can correct this situation through a combination of professional fungus control and installation of air purifiers. You will be glad for the protection it affords for the entire family. After all, what is life without clean and safe air for all of us to breathe!
