Home Renovations: Easier with Airmega
There’s no better way to fall back in love with your house than to spice it up with some redecorating and renovating! Things can get a bit messy when you take on a bigger project that involves demolition or construction, and sometimes removing dust from the air is the step that takes the longest to complete. Using an air purifier while you’re remixing your home is a great way to speed the process up so you can enjoy fresh, clean air in your updated space.
Can construction dust make you sick?
The Electronic Library of Construction Occupational Safety and Health says that construction dust is more than just a nuisance. It has the potential to seriously damage your health, leading to life-altering lung diseases or even death. Some health complications that can be caused by inhaling construction dust include lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. This is especially true of silica dust, which can be released into the air while working with materials like granite, sand and sandstone.
The chemicals that are released in fumes when painting can cause health problems, too. The fumes that evaporate from drying paint can lead to headaches, itchy, watery eyes, dizziness and breathing problems. They can also cause throat and lung irritation and blurred vision.
How to get dust out of the air
Though it can be helpful to open up windows and air the place out, when it comes to getting rid of construction dust and fumes in the air, an air purifier is the most effective solution. Airmega air purifiers suck in the air full of particulate matter and trap the airborne dust in their filters. Then, clean air free from floating pollutants is blown back into your space. This process continues on a loop until up to 99.999%¹ of nano-sized particles down to 0.01 micrometers are removed from the air. For reference, a single grain of silica dust is about 5 micrometers.
Airmega uses multiple layers of filtration, including a patented Green True HEPA™ filter. Together with an odor-neutralizing activated carbon filter, Airmega’s network of capture technologies can significantly reduce the number of harmful particles like dust, pollen and dander from your spaces, as well as viruses and bacteria.
