Worried About Wildfire Smoke in Your Indoor Air?
Wildfire season is in full swing in the Inland Northwest. It seems to have started earlier this year and has only become worse as the summer has progressed. Many of our customers are concerned about the effects of exposure to smoke during this troublesome time of the year.
Wildfire Smoke Contains Gases and Particulates
Wildfire smoke often contains gases and particulate matter from burning vegetation and other materials. This can even be a problem for people who are well outside the immediate area of the fire as the smoke and particulates can spread for hundreds of miles. When smoky conditions persist in your outdoor environment it’s very likely that the same smoke is penetrating your home or office.
If you feel that poor air quality from wildfire smoke—or any other source—is impacting your home or place of business, you have a solution right at your fingertips. A quick phone call to SERVPRO of Northwest Spokane will give you access to professional, industrial strength air scrubbers. These devices can be deployed in your home or office to clean your indoor air and restore it to pristine quality. Our air scrubbers feature a two-stage filtration system that captures larger particulates such as household dust, followed by a professional HEPA filter that captures 99.7% of the small particles down to 0.3 microns. This effectively removes wildfire pollutants.
The Difference Between Air Purifiers and Air Scrubbers
You might be thinking that you don’t have to worry about your indoor air quality because you have an air purifier. While air purifiers and air scrubbers both use negative ions to do their work, the air scrubber has a decided advantage in that it can not only clean particles from the air, but can also remove settled dust and bacteria. As a result, air scrubbers are much more efficient at creating an indoor air environment that is free not only of wildfire smoke, but other odors and pollutants that may be in your home or office.
