Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015 It’s the foggiest time of the year, allergy season. Spring has sprung and pollen is all around. If you’re done spending the season itching your eyes and sneezing, an air purification system may help clear some of the discomfort.

Change your shoes before coming inside. Buy a vacuum with a HEPA filter and use it regularly. If you’ve been working out in the yard or garden, clean up. If you have a dog or any furry friends that play outdoors, wash and brush them frequently. You may be wondering what the difference is between air filtration and an air purification system.
