Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
An indoor air purifier ensures the filtration and treatment of the air in a room. It captures the polluted air and purifies it in several stages to finally release a depolluted air. Thus, it fights against the bad smells, the pollution, the fine particles but also against the propagation of the bacteria and the viruses thanks in particular to the HEPA filter, for the medical and paramedical applications. It prevents, for example, asthma or allergy problems linked to poor air quality in people at risk. It is a device that can be used to prevent and cure at home as well as in the workplace.
All the air purifiers that we propose integrate an activated carbon filter which is very effective to absorb the molecules responsible for the bad smells like those of the tobacco, the animals, the moulds, etc...
A home air purifier is able to relieve allergic and sensitive people by removing pollen, dust and pet hair from the air. It is generally effective on large particles and is used for small to medium sized areas. While a professional air purifier can remove finer particles and higher concentrations of pollutants in medium and large areas. It can therefore be used in medical environments to preserve the health of professionals such as hairdressers or that of children in nurseries or schools for example, by providing safety, comfort and well-being.
Purifiers are not medical devices, but they remove almost all harmful contaminants to create more comfortable living conditions and to preserve health by relieving our bodies of the unnecessary effort of cleaning the air space with its own respiratory system.
By regularly using an air purifier, we get rid of harmful substances such as:
- Smoke (including tobacco smoke)
- Dust and animal hair
- Bacteria and molds
- Fungi and dust mites
- Odors from any source
- Chemicals, toxic gases
- Static electricity
When one ounce (12 g) of dust contains about 42,000 mites and a room of 150 square meters generates about 20 kg of dust, the number of mites can easily be multiplied by 1000. The waste products of these dust mites and ticks are much more potent allergens, which can often cause headaches, watery eyes, nasal congestion or constant runny nose. Airborne particles cause allergies, eye irritation, various infections, asthma attacks, fatigue and depression. All of these problems can be limited or eliminated with an air purifier.
By eliminating biological contaminants and pet odors, air purifiers reduce the risk of catching a cold. As a result, people with colds and lung or eye infections can feel much better when they use air purifiers. The reasons for the ailments are no longer in the air because they are carefully collected and eliminated by the air filter and the entire purification system.
In the case of the presence of mold that causes allergies, severe headaches, fatigue, irritability and depression, it is often unlikely that we look for the cause of the headache in the mold at the edge of the bathtub, while the latter it can be the cause of the problem. Purifiers with an ozonator or anionic system help to destroy these microorganisms, which improves the cleanliness and freshness of your lungs.
By eliminating the harmful vapors of household chemicals or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), air purifiers prevent us from having a runny nose for example after cleaning the bathtub or washing clothes with a cleaning gel or detergent. The solution of the appropriate air purifier allows to create comfortable conditions for the health, development of children.
We talk a lot about air pollution in cities, but the air in enclosed spaces outside cities is no less harmful, so it is much safer to be outside than in an enclosed room. When we spend 90% of our time indoors, we breathe polluted air. Dust, fumes or microbes are absorbed by walls, furniture, carpets, curtains in an ordinary house or office. Dust is considered by doctors to be the most important source of human infection.
Microbes move through the air with the help of dust particles, while the cleaners and detergents used in every family pollute the atmosphere of the house as well as toxic fumes. These elements slowly and imperceptibly poison us. There are, for example, microscopic dust mites that live in house dust and cause severe allergic reactions. They feed on human skin particles and live in abundance in every room, especially in beds. Walls, ceilings and floors are made of porous materials that accumulate toxic pollutants. Household dirt comes in the form of fungi, mold, bacteria and dust. All of these microbes thrive around us because of the large amount of heat, energy and food in the home and the lack of natural air circulation. Under these conditions, it is not surprising that 90% of infectious diseases are transmitted in closed spaces. In an open space, dust and microbes are destroyed while in closed rooms the conditions contribute to their proliferation and reproduction. By observing the sun's rays, it is possible to see the small particles flying in the air of a room. In 80% of the impurities we can see, there are particles of our dead skin. Food and things that fill our homes with odors do not improve the air quality either. Modern ventilation and air conditioning systems are designed in such a way that almost all the pollution circulates in the room and we breathe it again and again.
To solve these problems, it is recommended to:
- Eliminate all sources of contamination from carpets, fabrics, finishing materials, etc.
- Reinforce the ventilation of occupied rooms. But what if the air coming from outside is just as polluted? Or if you live near a large industrial city? Chances are that even the best ventilation system will only change a third of the air volume in the rooms.
- To filter and renew used air.
Nature often provides the best solutions and this is also true for air cleaning. The sun creates electrical charges, transforming some of the flying particles into negatively charged particles. This is how negative ions are formed. These ions are attracted to the dust particles and combine with them to form new, heavier particles that fall to the ground. This is how the air is purified at the same time. This process of ionization of the air is related to the ozone that is generated by sunlight and thunderstorms. It breaks down many harmful impurities naturally and quickly. This method is successfully used in the operation of air ozonators.
Not everyone can live in nature, but everyone can use air purifiers that mimic natural cleaning. Our air purifiers are capable of restoring the best possible air quality in homes, offices or industrial premises.
