About our Air Filtration System:

We utilize MERV 8 filters, meaning 81.5% of dust particles fed into the filter are successfully filtered out of the air.

We also have UV air purifiers that are designed to use short-wave ultraviolet light (UV-C light) to inactivate airborne pathogens and microorganisms like mold, bacteria, and viruses.
