Posted by Matt Silver on
Air pollution is a serious damaging health threat. Many areas in the U.S. have had their air quality declared poor, and at times, very poor. It’s only getting worse.
With pollution levels continuing to rise at a drastic rate and air quality hitting all-time lows, people are searching for much needed anti pollution protection to breathe cleaner air and to protect their health. A simple and effective option to help fight against air pollution is the use of an anti-pollution face mask, more specifically, an anti-pollution face mask 2.5 with carbon filter. Read on to learn more about the role of anti-pollution face masks in protecting your health.
How can anti-pollution face masks help?
Without a layer of protection between you and the elements that cause you harm, you are vulnerable and your health is at risk.
Nowadays, there are numerous types of face masks available on the market. The decision can be difficult to make when selecting which one to use, as they all claim to be the best. When it comes to protecting yourself from air pollution, an anti-pollution mask with carbon filter is what you need, because it filters PM2.5 through the carbon activated filter.
Why use an anti-pollution face mask 2.5?
“PM2.5” is a term for Fine Particulate Matter. Particulate matter is a huge concern for your health. These tiny particles in the air reduce visibility and cause the air to appear hazy when levels are elevated. The reason they are a high level of concern is because these fine particles pose the greatest health risk to you.
Our anti pollution face mask 2.5 is able to isolate 99 percent of indoor and outdoor pollution:
- Dust particles
- Vehicle exhaust
These tiny particles can penetrate deep within the lungs and can even get into the body’s bloodstream. Exposure to PM2.5 can even affect a person’s lungs and heart significantly. The larger, coarser PM10-2.5 particles are air particles that irritate a person’s eyes, nose, and throat.
Can you beat air pollution with face masks?
Anti pollution face masks are able to block airborne pathogens, help contain the spread of infection and illness, block allergens, and provide a shield against air pollution.
When you’re searching for a suitable anti-pollution mask, look for ones that are multi-layered. The multiple layers all play a part in filtering out or absorbing pollutants. Each Debrief Me® X95 anti-pollution face mask, for example, has five different layers to ensure maximum protection:
- Two soft layers of spun-bound cloth
- Two layers of high efficiency filter cloth
- One middle layer of activated carbon
This expertly designed anti-pollution face mask with carbon filter is able to ensure that 99 percent of air borne, harmful impurities to be filtered and absorbed. This powerful combination will allow you to breathe healthy air and relieve you of worry and stress concerning your well being.
So, are face masks effective in reducing or preventing air pollution exposure?
But keep in mind their ability to limit pollution exposure depends on the mask itself and how it is used. Check to ensure the anti-pollution face mask 2.5 you purchase fits your face snugly. It might fail to protect you against pollution if not worn correctly. Taking the time to learn how to put on the face mask and wearing it properly (chin diaper wearers, we’re looking at you!) is highly recommended.
