Contaminants In the Air
Pollen, dust, pet dander, mold, smoke and chemicals are the most common air pollutants we breathe in on a daily basis, and contrary to popular belief, these irritants aren’t isolated to the outside air. In fact, studies suggest that the air in the workplace may be 2 to 5 times more saturated with these pollutants than the outdoors.
How an Air Purifier can help
Air Purifiers are specifically designed to remove these contaminants from the air, giving you the ability to breathe in more of the pure oxygen your body needs and less of the harmful pollutants that come along with it.
Whether you have a preexisting respiratory condition or if you’d like to take precautions in order to remain healthy, adding an air purifier to your workplace is an intelligent and preventative step to take. Air purifier owners experience a healthier breathing environment, reduced aggravation from respiratory ailments and overall peace of mind.
Choosing the right air purifier for your environment
Choosing the right air purifier for your workplace depends on several important factors, including room size, health and environmental conditions. The main types of air purifiers include:
Allergy and Asthma Air Purifiers
These types of air purifiers are perfect for those who suffer from severe allergies, as they capture airborne pollen, dust and other allergens. They often feature HEPA and/or activated charcoal filtration.
An activated charcoal filter works by removing microscopic particles via chemical adsorption. By treating it with oxygen, carbon becomes activated, opening up millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms. This creates a huge surface area in a small space, perfect for absorbing microscopic contaminants like dust and pollen.
NOTE: Air purifiers can’t actually cure allergies or asthma; however, an air purifier designed to filter airborne allergens offers substantial relief by reducing triggers.

HEPA Air Purifiers
HEPA, or High-Efficiency Particulate Air filters trap microscopic contaminants, eliminating 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns.
The HEPA filter’s fibres are essential for trapping particles in the air flow. Passing through the filter, the air carries various contaminants. Particles larger than one micron stick quickly to the fibers as the air flows through. Smaller, lighter particles keep “going with the flow” longer before bumping into a fiber. The HEPA’s accordion-style pleats create many obstacles, ensuring that even the tiniest particles get trapped by the fibres.

Get the most out of your air purifier
A big part of figuring out which type air purifier is best for you is determining what you most need to get rid of. If cigarette smoke is an issue in your place of work, you’ll definitely want to get an air purifier that has an activated carbon filter. Whereas, if pollen or dust is an issue or a common cause of allergy symptoms, you will want to get an air purifier with a HEPA filter.
Picking out the best air purifier for you and your team is down to what you plan on using it for. To get the most out of your air purifier we recommend:
Choosing the best location
Air purifiers need breathing space, so be sure it has half a metre of clear space around the top and all four sides for unobstructed air circulation. Also, be sure to use the right size purifier for the room where you put it.
Accurately directing airflow
If the room is large, make sure the flow of clean air from your purifier is directed nearby, where you will get the most benefit. If the room is smaller, this won’t be as important because all of the purified air will circulate throughout the room.
Keeping it turned on
This is especially important for workplaces with smokers and for people with health conditions like allergies, asthma and other respiratory illnesses. Our air purifiers are energy-efficient and therefore ultra econcomical to keep running.
Cleaning filters regularly
Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for maintaining your air purifier. In general, HEPA and carbon filters need replacing annually. Air purifier filters hold the key to peaceful breathing, so don’t allow them to become clogged.
With an air purifier, your workplace will be more comfortable, inviting and refreshing than ever before. Choosing the right air purifier can be immediately rewarding for you and your whole team. Operating it properly will ensure your work environment has the cleanest, purest air your lungs have ever experienced!
