A garden gnome or lawn gnome is a figurine of a small humanoid creature, usually wearing a pointy hat, produced for the purpose of ornamentation and protection from evil sorcery. Typically found in gardens and on lawns, these figurines originated in early 19th century Germany where they commonly became known as garden dwarfs. While these are still very popular in Europe you often still see these gnomes popping up in gardens and some lawns across the US. The gnome has become one of the marketing tools for Travelocity…which are depicted on their website and often shown on the TV advertisements.

It is interesting that even in this day and age of unbelievable new technologies, many people still believe that certain objects or potions will protect them and their families from harm. Perhaps the stories and superstitions that surround these objects adds to the mystique that there are powers beyond our own comprehension at work. However, for most of us this is just nonsense. Or is it?

Pure Air Systems has been manufacturing commercial grade, certified HEPA and Carbon based air filtration systems for over 28 years. For the vast majority of those individuals, companies and organizations that have used these highly regarded systems, the overall effectiveness of the systems has convinced them they made the correct decision. However, for individuals who suffer from allergies or airborne contaminants and for those companies and facilities that still believe in home made remedies, the use of any type of air filtration device seems ridiculous. After all, they don’t need any any expensive equipment to do what their DIY concoctions can do.

Wearing a clove of garlic or magic stone or magnets from India around your neck thinking these items will ward off evil spirits and keep you safe from harm has never been proven to be effective. The reality is the ability to really protect yourself and your loved ones from harm requires a more grounded process. For years, Pure Air Systems dealt with potential customers who had tried every type of remedy and inexpensive air purification device to help them with their allergies and airborne contaminant removal. In every case where that type of customer acquiesced to purchasing one of the PAS HEPA units, their problems were resolved. By process of elimination, they proved to themselves that science was better than numerology.

This same trial-and-error process was also repeated by commercial companies, medical facilities and institutions. Often they would use the “lower bidder” approach to resolving their airborne contaminant issues only to find that in the world of air pollution, price should never be  the deciding factor. Pure Air Systems has maintained its reputation for providing the most effective, reliable HEPA based air filtration systems on the market today by doing exactly what it says it can do. Remove the harmful, airborne particles, allergens and pathogens from any source with a very high degree of effectiveness. Without using any Gnomes.
