It seems like the hunt for relief is never-ending. A lot of contaminants can hurt your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms created by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Some people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re one of the best ways to improve the air in your house.
