We finally gave up and bought an air purification system for our house last weekend because we have been dealing with horrible lingering odors in our house.
It seems like for some reason, smells linger inside of our house more than they should.
Whether it’s something burning on the stove or a particularly greasy food that we cook or even stinky smells from my son’s soccer uniforms, bad smells seem to linger in our house. I can’t even tell you how many different kinds of candles and air fresheners I have tried to try and get rid of the lingering odors, but nothing ever seems to work. A couple of weeks ago, I called up our local HVAC company to ask them if they had any suggestions for us to try and deal with this issue. The first thing that they suggested was that we get our ventilation ducts professionally cleaned. I have done some research on that and I don’t think that it’s really the best solution for a problem like ours, so I didn’t make an appointment to have that done. However, I liked the other suggestion that he gave me, which was to have a UV light air purification system installed to run alongside our heating and cooling system. A UV light air purification system works much more thoroughly than a regular air purifier and it can get rid of tiny particles that other types of purifiers couldn’t. We had it installed last weekend and I can already tell the difference in our home’s indoor air quality!
