No matter how clean you keep your Lake Forest, Illinois, home, odds are you may still struggle with dust and dust mites and the havoc they can bring. Dust contains things like pollen, dirt, and dead skin cells that shed off the humans and pets in your home.

This debris will accumulate on undisturbed surfaces and eventually can get into your HVAC system, reducing the air quality in your home. As dust accumulates, it will attract tiny bugs known as dust mites that feed on the skin cells and dirt particles. These tiny insects can also be the cause of allergies and other respiratory ailments. The good news is that by adding an air purifier to your HVAC system, you can combat both dust and dust mites and improve the air for everyone in your home.

How Can an Air Purifier Remove Dust?

Dust attracts dust mites as it settles and accumulates on the surfaces in your home. Air purifiers work by trapping the particles that make up dust before they have time to settle. Even though an air purifier cannot completely remove all the dust and dust mites from the air, it can go a long way toward reducing them.

How Does an Air Purifier Work?

Whole-house air purifiers are attached directly to your HVAC system, providing you with the ability to remove dust from the air throughout your entire home. When turned on, the air purifier will circulate the air and remove the tiny particulate matter that is floating there, such as pet dander and dust. The particles are filtered out through a HEPA filter located in the purifier. HEPA filters are designed to trap particles as small as 0.3 microns, providing ample filtering capabilities for the small particles that make up household dust.
