Another miserable cold and flu season is upon us once again and the magic question on everyone's lips is, "What can I do to avoid getting sick?"
As a company that deals in clean air, we wanted to share our perspective on this issue.
While we know there is certainly no guarantee that an air cleaner will offer 100% protection, we believe that it can form an important part of your prevention arsenal.
According to Penn State's airborne pathogens database , bacteria and viruses can range in size from 0.018 microns to well over 1 micron.
True HEPA filtration, like that in AllerAir air purifiers, can capture many of these respirable particles, in fact removing 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.
It's also worth mentioning that HEPA technology is used in hospitals world-wide as part of their routine hygiene procedures.
After all, if a fellow staffer is sneezing away in the next cubicle wouldn't you want there to be an air purifier between you???
From my cubicle to yours -- good luck for a sneeze-free winter....
