Second hand smoke is defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as the mixture of smoke that comes from the burning end of a cigarette, pipe, or cigar, and smoke exhaled by the smoker. It is a complex mixture of over 4,000 compounds, more than 40 of which are known to cause cancer in humans or animals and many of which are strong irritants. Secondhand smoke and exposure is often called passive smoking and is damaging to the health of anyone who breathes it. Removal of second hand smoke is paramount for healthy indoor air quality.
If someone in your family is a smoker, or your office is not a smoke-free workplace, you body is being bombarded with pollutants from second hand smoke. Fireplaces and wood stoves are other sources of indoor smoke allergens as well pipes for smoking. But, whatever the source of the smoke, you owe it to you and your family to clean up your indoor air quality quickly
A HEPA air purifier uses carbon cloth to remove airborne smoke and smoke odors. Combined with HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arresting) technology designed by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, the Allergy Machine removes not only smoke and smoke odor, but pollens, dust, dander, bacteria and viruses down to .3 microns! You will notice the difference immediately as air is forced through the filters and back out into the room, clean and fresh.
Designed to run 24 hours a day, HEPA purifiers are quiet, effective, and require very little maintenance to perform well. And if this isn’t enough good news-there is no assembly required. Simply pull it out of the box, plug it in, and breathe. And remember, improving indoor air quality has been proven to help you, your family, and your pets live a longer, healthier life.
