The Importance of Air Filtration
The Importance of Air Filtration

Data has shown that the majority of COVID-19 cases are transmitted in closed spaces, which is why now more than ever before, proper air filtration is an important part of health and wellness. Simply opening windows will allow fresh air to flow in and out, diluting the concentration of airborne virus particles. This may be a solution for your home, but in commercial and office buildings where windows cannot be opened, the HVAC system provides for the necessary exchange of air. To boost the amount of active air filtration in your office, you may also consider buying a portable air purifier. These machines improve indoor air quality by removing tiny particles from the air through a filter made from woven fibers.

There are different types of air filters, when choosing yours here are some things to consider:

  • Choose an air purifier with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. These filters can remove more than 99.97% of all particle sizes.
  • Consider the size of your ...
