The last couple of weeks we have been dealing, almost daily, with air quality alerts in the New Orleans area. Our poor air quality right now does not only stem from pollen and mold in the air, but also from Saharan dust. The massive plume of Saharan dust gets blown across the Atlantic and arrived in our area over a week ago. Trade winds from the east transport dry, dusty air from the Sahara Desert over the ocean into the gulf of Mexico. Saharan dust can cause problems for people who suffer from allergies, asthma and chronic sinus conditions. Saharan dust travels across the Atlantic Oceans every year around this time starting off the coast of Africa, but experts say the currents are unusually intense.

What You Can Do To Protect Yourself From Saharan Dust
Usually, the Saharan dust does not come to the surface but stays high up in the atmosphere giving the daytime sky a pale and hazy look and making our sunsets look amazing. This year, however, experts say the Saharan dust is making it to the surface causing low air quality. There are even more swaths blowing across the ocean right now heading our way. If you want to keep the Saharan dust out of your home get the right air conditioning filters or get the Air Scrubber.
With the Air Scrubber & ActivePure Technology, you can go beyond traditional air purification systems by not only eliminating stale odors and reducing dust, but actually eliminating harmful contaminants in the air and on the surfaces of your home. The Air Scrubber has been an effective tool against illness causing viruses and bacteria including, but not limited to, MRSA, E. coli and others. The air purifying system won’t cure an individual who may have contracted the coronavirus or guarantee that someone won’t get a virus, but air purifiers can help keep a healthy environment. The Air Scrubber will reduce exposure to common bacteria and viruses and their effects upon your health and wellness. Get the Air Scrubber to protect your family and yourself from harmful bacteria and viruses in your home.
The air scrubber will reduce particles that can irritate allergies and asthma. This is especially important since we are at the height of our allergy season.
