Globally, the pandemic has closed doors but opened eyes when it comes to safeguarding your health against viruses and bacteria. Find out how you can keep your air super clean, avoid falling sick and save big with the best performing air purifier in the market.
The next time someone wonders aloud at how safety measures like contact tracing and wearing masks seem over-the-top given our low Covid-19 transmission numbers, do welcome them to the new norm. And I don’t mean the lack of free travel or daily reports. I mean the hyper-awareness of hygienic practices, public and personal sanitization, and social responsibility.
Not surprisingly, this transformation isn’t driven solely by public management, but individuals themselves in areas where you spend the most time and would naturally want to feel safest and cleanest in.
What does science say?
So what’s the best way to kill bacteria and viruses? Hand sanitizers and good hygiene may take care of surfaces, but what about the air we constantly breathe? We don’t wear masks at home because we assume a clean home, air and all. If you wear one at work all day, then you must be wishing you didn't have to.
First we look at how viruses are spread. Covid-19 may not be an airborne virus, but like we said - the new norm is about reducing the risk of all illness via bacteria and viruses, many of which can be transmitted by fine aerosols from sneezing and coughing. Thankfully, there are ways to purify the air you breathe, just like - you guessed it - an air purifier!
How does an air purifier work?
Did you know that the air indoors can be dirtier than outdoors? When you take into account the higher number of sources for air contaminants and moisture (prime conditions for mould and other fungi), it may not be such a stretch after all. But is there a best home air purifier?
Air purifiers, as the name suggests, clean the air you breathe indoors. There are different kinds of purifiers, each with their own methods and inconveniences:
Filtered purifiers trap dust particles from passing through, but are typically costly, and need to be cleaned/replaced often. Ozone generators alter oxygen molecules to create ozone, which is supposed to purify the air. However, ozone is an unpredictable, toxic gas that may be more harmful than useful. Activated charcoal filters absorb and trap passing particles, albeit how well it does this depends on how the charcoal is made, which can affect quality and efficiency. UV light purifiers use UVC light to destroy viruses and bacteria in the air.
Which air purifier does Fuzzie recommend?
