Wherever you go today, you will face a constant attack of pollution; not

Article Body:
Wherever you go today, you will face a constant attack of pollution; not
only from air, but also from water and noise. There are almost as many
types of air pollution as there are potential solutions. No matter what
type of air purification system you're looking for, you should know that
there is not one product on the market today that can solve every
problem.

In order to find out which type of air purification solution is the most
suitable for you. It is therefore necessary for you to understand all
these five typed of air pollution first.

1. Radon Gas Pollution: Radon is a completely odorless, tasteless and
colorless gas, and is the heaviest of all known gasses. It is caused by
the radioactive breakdown of uranium inside the earth. When radon is
cooled below freezing, it turns a brilliant phosphorescent shade of
yellow, which turns orange-red as it gets colder. Radon is also the
second leading cause of lung cancer. Smoking exacerbates the affects of
radon. Radon is found all around us, in our homes, our yards and the
world around us.

Recommended Solution: The best solution to this form of pollution is to
first of all test your home (a simple test is available at most hardware
stores) and then to seal all cracks and openings in your home's
foundation. If the problem merits it, you may need to have a certified
contractor install a ventilation system inside your home.

2. Chemical Fumes and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). This type of
pollution comes from chemicals like benzene and formaldehyde, the
chemical fumes that are constantly seeping from carpets, upholstery,
furniture, draperies, household cleaning products, beauty products such
as nail polish, removers, etc. They also come from cigarette, cigar and
pipe smoke, building construction, etc. Many of these chemicals have been
identified as carcinogens.

Recommended Solution: Currently the best solution on the market for this
type of pollution are products that produce catalytic oxidation.

3. Microbial Causing Pollution. Microbials are microscopic bacteria,
fungi, mycotoxins created by a fungus, mildew, mold spores and viruses.
They can be as small as .001 microns. Microbials love to live in warm,
damp places, or under your carpet, in your walls and in heating and air
conditioning ducts.

Recommended Solution: Currently the best solutions on the market for this
type of pollution are those that produce oxidation, which kills
microbials.

4. Odor Causing Pollution. Odor comes from many different places - food,
animals, human bodies, cigarettes, cigars and pipe smoke, sports shoes,
clothing and equipment, etc. Although not necessarily dangerous, if
you've ever walked into your teenage son's room after he's come back from
a football game and taken a deep breath - you know it can be very
unpleasant!

Recommended Solution: Currently, the best solutions on the market for
this type of pollution are odor sponges, ozone and oxidation.

5. Particulate Causing Pollution. Particulates are those little floating
things you see when the sun comes shining in through your windows, and
include dust, dust mites, dust mite feces, pet dander, skin flakes (what
dust mites eat), pollen, smoke particles and allergens.

Recommended Solution: Currently the best solutions on the market for this
type of pollution are infiltration and negative ions.

With this basic understanding about pollution you are now ready to make
that all important decision about which system is going to be best for
you. The choice is yours!
