Air purifier is engaging in our life at present time, it helps our life more healthy with clean air. While there are still many puzzles about the product, such as can the air purifier really remove smog efficiently? Because smog is now human beings biggest enemy, it can cause cancer potentially, there are many sources of them in our daily life. Today this article will lead you to know whether air purifier could remove smog, and how does it work. First, let’s begin with how the smog affect our life.
Why Is Smoking Harmful?
Tobacco smoke is made up of gaseous toxic compounds known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These bad things are dangerous and cause widespread health problems for both adults and children. Research shows that one in two smokers dies from smoking-related diseases.
Examples of Affection of Smoke
- For the Blood
Blood Circulation The toxic substances in cigarette tar can increase your blood pressure and heart rate. Also, because smoke contains many toxic compounds, smoking may narrow your arteries and reduce the amount of oxygen. If you don't have enough oxygen, you could have a heart attack.
- For the brain
Smoking is more likely to give you a stroke. The most dangerous health problems are brain damage and death.
- For the Lungs
Smoking is the worst killer of lungs. Starting with coughing, wheezing and asthma attacks, smoking can lead to deadly diseases like emphysema and lung cancer.
- For the Skin
For the sake of the skin, smoking reduces the amount of oxygen to the skin. This means that when you smoke, your skin ages faster and looks dull.
Stuttering, smoking can cause bad breath and stained teeth. Also, if you keep smoking, it can damage your sense of taste and even cause cancer.
Won't all these facts make you quit smoking? At the very least, you should think about your children or other members of your family. If you can't (and we don't judge you), you should use an air purifier to help clear the smoke and, as a result, return clean air to your family.
Do Air Purifiers Help Remove Smoke Well?
To help eliminate smoke, air purifiers must remove particles in the air that can form visible smoke and tiny particles in odors. An air purifier can only help fight smog if it has two parts:
For MSHEPA filter, this system removes 99.97% of particles below 0.3 microns. This includes high levels of pollutant particles in visible smoke. While powerful, not all true HEPA filters on the market are effective against VOCs or toxic gases.
An activated carbon filter, which absorbs the smell of smoke. It also removes volatile organic compounds and toxic gases without any problems.
Pre-filters and medium filters will help reduce most of the toxic compounds in the smoke. These filters are usually washable, which helps extend the life of true HEPA filters.
How Does Air Purifier Work to Remove Smoke?
MS HEPA filters are certified to capture 99.97% of 0.3 micron contaminant particles. If the filter does not meet this requirement (is a hepa type or similar hepa filter) it will not help you from some VOCs or small bacteria.
An activated carbon filter is a unique filter that consists of a special type of activated carbon (charcoal). With these ultra-fine pores, this filter can absorb the gaseous smoke of cigarettes. This absorption is the adhesion of molecules that transform the gaseous state into a solid surface. Once absorbed, the smell of smoke dissipates as it is not released back into the air.
UV filters, no matter how useful they are at killing viruses and bacteria, are ineffective against any harmful compounds in tobacco smoke.
The ionizer works like a true HEPA filter, reducing pollutant particles and emitting a cloud of negatively charged ions into the air. These ions attract pollutant particles to fall on nearby surfaces. However, you must check if your ionizer is producing high levels of ozone, as ozone is one of the causes of asthma attacks.
