Take steps to keep yourself healthy indoors
The lifestyle landscape of Americans has drastically changed in the last couple of weeks, and from what experts are saying, will remain this way for some time. Our sense of normalcy has changed literally overnight with cities and states across America having some form of "shelter in place" order.
As we all grow accustomed to a new normal, what we do know is we will be spending more time at home indoors. If you are like others, you have gone around your home cleaning and sanitizing every surface to try and protect you and your loved ones from COVID-19.
As we are trying to clean, sanitize, and disinfect, many people remain unaware of the one thing that is not being addressed, indoor air quality. With COVID-19 being a respiratory health concern, we believe this truly is a time to focus on the necessity of improving the quality of air we are breathing. According to the EPA, our homes have concentrations of some pollutants often 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor concentrations.
The good news is there are ways to improve not only your indoor air quality, but also kill viruses and bacteria in the air and on surfaces. There are products available to homeowners and businesses that are installed and have been tested and proven to kill more than 99% of H1N1 (swine flu) on surfaces, 99.99% of surface bacteria/virus, 99% of microbes in human sneeze at 3 feet, 97% airborne bacteria, plus 99% reductions of E. coli, Listeria, strep, tuberculosis, and bird flu.
Sun Glow Heating and Cooling's Pure Air device is a tool homeowners and businesses can use to clean the air and surfaces, promoting healthy indoor air quality. We welcome people's questions regarding these products. Call us at 503-253-7789 to find out more.
