How Does It Work?

Air filters make use of fine filters that sieves particles from the air surroundings. As air blows into the purifier, it uses the finer the filter and makes the tinier the particles and it catches.

HEPA catches plenty of particles which are larger than 0.3 Ms (microns), and the Microns are the particle which is not seen by the naked eye, which is viruses or bacteria.

Filters that use HEPA technology remove allergens like mold, smoke, chemicals, pollen, pet dander and asbestos, by cleaning the air which passes through the filter. The room capacity of HEPA air purifier will determine whether the air cleaner can meet your need or not!
