Did you know that the air inside a typical home is five times dirtier than the outside
That’s right! The air inside a typical home is up to 5 times dirtier than the air
outside! And, according to The World Health Organization, air pollution has become the
world's single biggest environmental health risk, linked to around 7 million deaths in 2012.
Everyone has a certain tolerance for airborne chemicals and particulates. Some people’s
tolerance is very high. Other folks, such as those with allergies, the very young, the
elderly and those with compromised or weakened immune systems are not so lucky and are more
at risk if exposed to excessive airborne contaminates.
The key is to reduce the amount of contaminants taken into the body’s respiratory
system. HEPA, which is an acronym for High Efficiency Particulate Absorbing, is an air
filtration standard developed by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. HEPA air filtration is
99.97% effective at removing particulate 0.3 micrometers in diameter.
Without getting too technical, it is important to understand that 0.3 micrometers is not
the smallest size HEPA filters will capture, but 0.3 is what is known as the MPPS or Most
Penetrating Particle Size, and 99.97% of all particles exactly this size will be stopped by
the HEPA filtration. Particles smaller or larger than 0.3 are trapped with even higher
Chesapeake Environmental Solutions has true HEPA air filtration systems
for any application. Whether you want portable units for individual rooms, or a system
that will clean the air in your entire home. And they are probably not as expensive as you
might think. A system that can effectively completely clean and recirculate the air in an
average size room multiple times an hour is just a couple hundred dollars or so.
