Clean Air - Parkersburg & Surrounding Areas
The air you’re breathing is probably more polluted than the outdoors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the level of pollution indoors can be up to 100 times higher than outdoor air! Coupled with the fact that most people spend over 90% of their time indoors means you are most likely continuously exposed to polluted air.

Use Ultraviolet Light Air Purifiers to Purify Your Air
Grogg’s Home Services offers solutions such as ultraviolet (UV) light options to purify your indoor air. Did you know that the most effective air purifier is natural sunlight? It is simulated in our UV air purifiers to inhibit the growth and reproduction of viruses, fungi, mold and germs. We mount these UV lights inside your air duct system. This is because your dark, damp duct system is one of the major places that germs grow and circulate.

Indoor Air Pollutants
Are you familiar with the three types of indoor air pollutants? They are particulates, microbials and gases. Here’s a quick comparison so you know what your indoor air quality product is targeting. As a general rule in the air quality industry, we say if it’s alive, it needs to be killed. If it’s dead, it needs to be trapped. The following can pose a threat to the quality of your indoor air:
- Particulates - tiny particles that are suspended in air, such as dust, residential pollen, dust mites, dander and smoke.
- Microbes - mold, spores, viruses, germs, bacteria and fungi. Lingering viruses spread illnesses such as the flu or common cold. Mold can also be a dangerous allergen, causing extensive building damage and infections in the body.
- Gases - produced by chemicals in insect sprays, hair sprays, insulation, cabinets, carpet and furniture.
When considering the negative side effects of each of these indoor pollutants, it is clear why removing these from your indoor air can help improve your health and the quality of the air you breathe. Getting an air purifier for your home is a great way to protect your home against indoor air pollutants.
