My wife and I live with our family close to a rock quarry. The rock quarry was vacant when my wife and I bought the property. It was a huge lot with ten acres and a fairly decent barn. Two or three years after we moved into the house, a company purchased the rock quarry and began excavating. The noise pollution is hard enough to take, but the air pollution is something else. Since the new company opened the quarry, there has been a lot of dust in the air. It’s easy to see the dust outside and it covers all of our cars, trucks, and machines. Sometimes there is so much dust in the air that the grass looks like it has snow. When my youngest son started exhibiting asthma-like symptoms, I took him to the doctor. The doctor told me that the breathing problems were probably due to our home being so close to the rock quarry. The doctor suggested a medical grade air purifier to help keep our family safe. Since their doctor suggested a medical grade air purifier, I got the insurance company to pay 80% of the cost. My wife and I purchased a whole home air purifier and had the machine installed by a local repair company. The air purifier removes all of the allergens, dust, mold, and contaminants from inside of our home. The air coming out of the machine is clean, fresh, and free of any contaminants. The medical grade air purifier helps everyone in the house, but it really has improved my son’s breathing.
