Could Mold Be Making You Sick?

Mildew can be a problem any time of the year but rainy season and the cold snowy wet winters are even worse!  Mildew grows in damp dark places in your home and depending on the geographic area you live in it can be more significant.
Mold spores cause a host of different reactions ranging from itchy watery eyes allergies and congestion and even asthma.

Mold Facts

“FACT: Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth. FACT: With water, molds grow. Without water, molds die but the spores do not. If water returns, the spores regenerate growing colonies of mold.”

HealthMate To The Rescue

The HealthMate™ addresses the complete spectrum of air cleaning, removing sub-micron particles, noxious gases and chemicals. Austin Air’s 360-degree intake system draws air into all sides of the HealthMate™, passing it through a 4-stage filter.
The result, more clean air delivered faster and more efficiently than any other air purifier on the market.
