Air Purification Experts Provide Guidance For Protecting Indoor Air Quality During Wildfires

AUSTIN, Texas , June 08 /Businesswire/ - As wildfires continue to rage in Eastern Canada, safeguarding indoor air quality is an essential concern for many parts of the Northeast, with alerts extended to the Midwest and south to the Carolinas. In response to the dire conditions, Warburg Lee, CEO of Alen, offers the following tips for protecting your air:

  • Seal your Environment: Keep windows and doors closed to prevent smoke, smog and pollution from entering your home. Seal any gaps or cracks in windows, doors, and walls with tape, weatherstripping or caulk.
  • Monitor Indoor Air Quality: Indoor air quality monitors measure the level of particulate matter and pollutants inside your home. It will help you assess the effectiveness of your efforts and take necessary actions accordingly.
  • Use Air Purifiers: Public health experts recommend using H13 medical-grade HEPA air filters that capture 99.9% of airborne particles, such as smoke, as small as 0.1 microns. It is highly recommended to use an air purifier with a maximum coverage area slightly larger than your room, as max coverage is based on the unit’s highest fan speed. This allows the air purifier to do its job effectively at a lower, quieter speed 24/7.
  • Create a Clean Zone: Designate a specific room in your home as a clean zone where you can minimize smoke, smog and pollution exposure. Keep this room as smoke-free as possible, using air purifiers and keeping windows and doors closed.

Wildfires not only cause destruction to natural landscapes but also release harmful pollutants, such as smoke, particulate matter, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), into the atmosphere. These pollutants can infiltrate homes, affecting the health and well-being of residents, particularly those with respiratory conditions, the elderly, and young children.
