2021 Safe Home Products
In 2020 practicing good hygiene and healthy habits has become more important than ever. It is likely that 2021 will be the same. By applying robust cleanliness routines you can ensure the health of your family and loved ones. One essential tool that you need in 2021 is a heavy-duty, high-powered air purifier. Yescomusa is here to tell you all you need to know about air filtration.
Why is it Important to Stay Healthy in 2021?
2020 has highlighted the importance of wearing a face covering, washing your hands, and physical distancing in order to prevent the spread of harmful germs. As the unpredictable spikes and falls of this worldwide emergency continue the Center for Disease Control and Prevention strongly suggests focusing on your health especially if you have pre-existing conditions.
As an additional precaution, some professionals suggest using an air purifier to keep your home fully ventilated and aerated.
“Since most COVID spreads through droplets and/or aerosols, these airborne pathogens can be captured by the air purifier filter,” Dr. Wei-Ning Wang, associate professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering at the Virginia Commonwealth University College of Engineering, suggests.
Though there is no evidence that air purifiers alone can prevent sickness, but they are recommended as an additional safeguard against the spread of harmful germs.
How to Choose the best Air Purifier
There is a myriad of air purifiers on the market and some are better than others. Before you buy an air purifier, do your research so that you don’t waste money purchasing the wrong one. Here are a few tips on purchasing the right air purifier for your room.
- HEPA. You need an air purifier that has a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. These filters can capture 99.97% of dangerous particles as small as 0.3 microns. This includes pet dander, dust, smoke, and other airborne allergens.
- CADR. It is also vital to pick an air purifier that is Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) certified so it can collect airborne particles smaller than 1mm.
- Size. Make sure to use an air purifier that is the correct size for the room that it is in.
Can a UV Light Kill Germs?
Manmade UV (Ultraviolet) light is a strong type of radiation that can kill germs. In the past, it has been used to destroy SARS-COV-2 and other illnesses. UV light can reduce the amount of live harmful pathogens on surfaces and in the air in a matter of minutes.
UV light can quickly destroy harmful germs that can get you sick. In fact, UVC light has been used in hospitals for many years to clean surfaces and equipment.
An air purifier with a UV light preventative can destroy the germs in your home once they are collected in the filter. Having a UV light added to your filter is an additional safeguard when it comes to protecting and keeping a healthy home.
How to Keep a Healthy Home
There have been countless studies researching illness-causing germs and how long they last in the air and on surfaces. Most sickness causing antibodies can survive the longest on plastics and stainless steel surfaces. The air, however, can hold up to 1,800 kids of microbes, some that are harmful and some that are not.
An air purifier alone will not prevent you from getting sick. Experts suggest that you use an air purifier to support your current hygienic routine. This includes, wearing a face covering, washing your hands, and practices physical distancing.
