We know that the air in our homes can have unwanted contaminants in it; that’s why we use filters. But not all filters were created equally.

Unfortunately, even though pollen and pet dander are small from our perspective, in terms of air quality they are actually rather big when compared to other air
Air filtration is all about making the air cleaner. And what could be greener than removing contaminants from the air?
