Surviving Fall Sicknesses

It’s officially Fall! Pumpkin spice, leaves beginning to change and The Great Frederick Fair are all signs that summer is over here in Frederick, MD. We’re bringing out our sweaters and boots and starting to really enjoy the smells of fresh-baked pumpkin pies and the taste of apple cider. Before we know it, it will be October and we’ll be out enjoying all of the Fall harvest activities and Octoberfests in the area. One thing we may not be enjoying are the allergies and sicknesses that come with Fall. To keep you feeling good and healthy, we suggest that you get an air scrubber. Here’s why:

Kids and Germs

In our area, kids have been back in school for nearly a month. That means they’ve had time to pick up all of the germs from the other kids and have most likely brought them home. Germs come in on their hands, their backpacks, shoes…you name it and the germs are hitchhiking on it. If your kids are involved in sports, they are even more likely to bring home germs because they’re interacting and touching more kids. It’s inevitable that you and the rest of your family will be exposed to these germs if you’re not doing something to get rid of them. Let’s face it, you can’t just walk around with a can of Lysol all the time and hope that you’re killing everything. That’s just not feasible. You need something that kills germs when you can’t – the air scrubber. 


Fall is particularly known for mold with cooler temperatures and a lot of dampness but we also are still dealing with ragweed. Ragweed season is at its peak in mid-August and September and doesn’t end until the first hard frost of the season. With the higher than normal temperatures in the Maryland area, we can expect to be dealing with ragweed a bit longer. Mold spores and ragweed particles are both airborne so they can blow into your house when you open the doors and when you open the windows on those cool nights. Like germs, they can also hitchhike on you. Unless you want to live off of Claritin, we suggest that you get an air scrubber. 

What does an air scrubber do?

As temperatures begin to drop and we start spending more time inside, the quality of our air becomes much more noticeable and therefore, more important. The air scrubber technology continually sends out oxidizers to attack harmful contaminants in your air and on the surfaces throughout your home. To see exactly how this works, please watch the video below


Not only does the air scrubber help protect us against allergens, viruses, and bacteria, it helps clean the air so that we are not harmed by the products we use to clean our homes.  According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air quality can be up to ten times worse than outdoor air quality because of these volatile organic compounds found in many cleaning products. 

If you want the best indoor air quality so that you and your family feel their best, get an air scrubber. We’d be happy to have a conversation with you about what installation would entail. Give us a call at 301.401.2780.
