Indoor odors are caused by things like pets, cooking, garbage exist in every home and office. Gases, such as benzene, formaldehyde, chloroform, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, etc., are released from furniture, cabinets, carpets, cleaning chemicals, insulation, insect sprays, hair sprays, etc. Manufacturers use chemicals to make these products and they put off gas, or evaporate, these chemicals into the air in your home.
These are bacteria, germs, viruses, fungi, spores and mold. Although bacteria are small in size and usually microscopic, they have an amazing ability to do damage to all living organisms including humans. Many everyday illnesses are also caused by viruses like the common cold or the flu. Mold can be a dangerous allergen, cause infections, and destroy property requiring extensive repair and rebuilding.
Particulates are tiny particles suspended in the air. Common particulates include residential pollen, dust mites, dust, smoke and dander (skin flakes). Particulate diameters are measured in microns and range from .001 to 1,000 microns. These dimensions represent the continuum from a few molecules up to the size where particles can no longer be airborne.
There are 3 types of indoor air pollutants - Particulates, Microbials and Gases. Therefore, in order to make an apples-to-apples comparison, we must compare what each type of indoor air quality product is attempting to do. There is an industry rule of thumb:
"If it is alive you have to kill it."
"If it is dead you have to trap it."
Most people spend over 90% of their time indoors, not knowing that the air they are breathing may be more polluted than the air outside. The Environmental Protection Agency has reported that indoor air pollution levels can be 100 times higher than the air outdoors.
Breathing contaminated air puts the health of you and your family at risk. In fact, the American College of Allergist says that 50% of illnesses are caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. So take control of your indoor air quality by reducing pollutants that can contribute to headache, lung irritation and fatigue as well as more long-term conditions such as asthma, allergies and infectious diseases.
When installed into your home’s heating and cooling system, an ALL STAR Media Air Cleaner traps and filters airborne particles and contaminants passing through the duct system insuring cleaner air is distributing to all rooms in your home. Recommended as the basic minimum air quality product. Media Air Cleaners are up to 85% more efficient at removing airborne particles than a standard one-inch furnace filter, and maintain high airflow in your heating and cooling system so that it functions at full efficiency.

In addition, RGF technology, because of its ability to kill bacteria and virus on surfaces and in the air, have been specified in the Norovirus/MRSA protection plan of America’s largest restaurant chains, hotel chains, theme parks, cruise lines, public schools and hospitals.
“Musty” or Stale Air smells
The Guardian Air will reduce or eliminate:
The most important thing to get across about the Guardian Air is its proactive ability to kill germs and reduce odors in the conditioned space. These units don’t need the pollutants to travel through the duct work to be neutralized. Every time your fan blows air it carries the purifying power of natures “Friendly Oxidizers” out into the conditioned space where the “Friendly Oxidizers” begin to attack the Bacteria, Virus, and Mold Spores at the source and reduce odors in your home.
Take the human sneeze as an example. Germs come out with a sneeze at 100mph. With the Guardian Air REME installed, 99% of the germs in a sneeze were neutralized before the germs could make it 3 feet.
