A thick blanket of smog has engulfed our national capital once again, which is making it difficult to breathe specially for the elderly and children. Today, at least in Delhi, we can visibly see the effect of air pollution. The visibility is poor, eyes are watering and itching, dryness in the throat and nose is leading to dry cough and skin is itchy due to excessive pollution.
Schools have closed down so that children stay indoors. Experts suggest that everyone vulnerable need to stay indoors. So it’s now time to turn attention to indoor air.
But what is alarming is outdoor air will seep inside homes and offices. There is no way to avoid it. Studies say that the air indoors can be many times more polluted than the air outside. The most common indoor air pollutants are combustion products, biological particles from mold, pet dander, pollen, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), lead dust and asbestos. Indoor air may also contain over 900 different types of gaseous chemicals and particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns (PM2.5).
But the good news is that you can take control of the indoor air by investing in a powerful and trusted air purifier.
Blueair Air Purifiers are the perfect answer for clean indoor air. Blueair HEPASilentTM technology unites the best in electrostatic and mechanical filtration. The revolutionary combination of advanced filter media and an encapsulated particle-charging chamber ensures that Blueair air purifiers deliver best results. Even on the lowest setting, Blueair air purifiers capture 99.97% of airborne particles down to 0.1 micron in size.
The filter is the heart of an air purifier, and the filter technology in a Blueair air purifier is revolutionary. Millions of ultra-thin fibers of different sizes and layers are interwoven, locking in particles at different stages. The outer layers capture larger particles like pollen and dust and the inner layers capture smaller bacteria and exhaust particles.
Experts advise that a purifier should completely clean the air in the room at least once every 20 minutes, and ideally at least once every 12 minutes. All Blueair purifiers clean the air in the room at least five times in an hour,
Besides this, fight the hazards of pollution by eating healthy and drinking lots of liquids. Sip on warm water or tea, eat jaggery and honey.
