How Did Rx Begin?

Joe and Linda Maglio

Joe Maglio, the founder of RxCleanAir, developed kidney disease while working in the industrial laundry industry in the late 1980’s. He could not work and for someone like Joe, this was not acceptable.

Doctors did not know why, so Joe set out to find the cause himself. Ultimately he tracked the source to chemicals used in the industrial laundering process that were absorbed through the skin and lungs where Joe worked for years. "I was now on a mission to try to improve my condition and restore my health. Drinking purified water, breathing clean air, was a great start and took some time to recover. Now my mission has changed, I want to help others get better health by breathing the best air possible."

Joe has a great understanding of the importance of an environmentally sound home and workplace with years of experience in identifying indoor air quality concerns.
