With research showing that chances of contracting COVID-19 rise when staying indoors for an extended period, the virus has highlighted the importance of fresh and clean indoor air.
Unfortunately, some companies choose to try and profit from the situation by marketing questionable products backed with questionable claims.
For example, companies that manufacture and sell ozone generators have been marketing them as air-purifiers. They allege that users benefit from adding a third oxygen atom to the basic oxygen molecule, also known as ozone gas.
The fact is that you can’t manufacture healthy air, especially if the air is already contaminated. That would be as silly as mixing pure water with sewer water.
Considering that buildings and homes draw air from the outdoors, indoor air quality gets significantly impacted by outdoor pollution.
Humidifiers are also another common apparatus to help people breathe easier. While they do help people breathe more comfortably, they still leave harmful contaminants circulating in the air. Some may think that Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Units exchange indoor air with fresh outdoor air, but it doesn’t.
This means that once pollutants and contaminants are introduced into the home, they tend to stay inside.
Studies conducted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) show that indoor levels of pollutants may be up to 100 times higher than outdoor levels. This is alarming since the majority of people spend about 90% of their time indoors.
Even though letting fresh air in is ideal, this isn’t always possible. Factors like intense weather and harsh outdoor pollution may prevent homeowners or building occupants from keeping windows and doors open. Therefore, it’s important to purify the air inside to help filter out the contaminants.
For example, the Nuvia Breeze Deluxe is our portable Enhanced Air Purifier that uses a 9-stage Disinfectant Filtration System (DFS). The 9-stage DFS is capable of filtering particulates that are as small as 0.007 microns. That is 94.4% smaller than the smallest COVID-19 particulate, which is 0.06 microns large. Thanks to its 360-degree air intake, the Nuvia Breeze Deluxe gives you adaptable and thorough protection where it is operating.
