The absolute best way to clean the air in the home is prevent the source of the poor indoor air quality. We have found the most common cause of poor indoor air quality in in queensland is mould. We can conduct mould testing and help provide a solution for this which in most cases is to prevent moisture ingress into the home.
If there is no way of controlling the moisture ingress in your home, you may need to invest in a dehumidifier to help control and dry the materials which are wet. Additionally, you may need to use an Hepa air purifier to help control the mould spores which may be airborne in your home.
