Even after the first frost and well into the winter, mold spores are alive and well. One way to get rid of these airborne menaces is to put a good filter on your furnace. But what types of filters are necessary to filter out mold spores?
- Disposable Filters: These are the most popular choice for consumers because they are inexpensive. However, while they block large dust particles, they do nothing to stop mold and allergens from racing around your home.
- Electrostatic Filters: These filters use an electrostatic charge to help attract the dirt and dust particle. Sadly, they do not capture mold spores and allergens in the air.
- Pleated Allergy Filters: These filters are better for capturing dust, dirt, allergens and mold and are estimated to capture 35 – 50% of the particles in the air.
- HEPA Filters: HEPA, or High Efficiency Particulate Air, filters block 90% of all allergens, dust particles, mold and more.
Note: Industry guidelines suggest changing your air filter once a month for the highest level of performance.
Sadly, mold spores are tough. They can be tracked in on your shoes, on your clothing, even on your skin. So even good air filters won’t get rid of them all. That means that with all your precautions, your home or business could still develop mold. If it does, tackle the problem with Mold Off®.
