Air Purifiers and Chemicals


Chemical exposure can lead to unpleasant symptoms, which is why it is important to reduce the number of chemicals around you. If you are renovating your home, there may be chemicals from paint, new furniture, chemicals from dyes, and building materials lingering in the air.  If you work in an environment with heavy chemical exposure such as a laboratory or salon, there are many chemicals that can cause symptoms such as headache, dizziness, and itchy eyes.  Choosing an air purifier that is designed with a deep carbon filter is crucial in removing chemicals.  Carbon filters absorb the chemicals, and a deeper carbon filter provides more surface area for the air to pass through, and greater opportunity to remove the offending volatile organic compounds or toxic chemicals.
