Health Risks of Wildfire Smoke

Wildfire smoke contains high concentration of solid sub-micron airborne particulates, such as fine ash, that can penetrate deep into the lung tissue and get into a blood stream.
Wildfire smoke also contains over 400 toxic chemicals including:

  • carbon dioxide
  • carbon monoxide
  • nitrogen oxide
  • polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)
  • volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • benzene
  • formaldehyde
  • acrolein

and many other chemicals.

Wildfires represent a major hazard to public, as exposure to wildfire smoke and smoke inhalation can pose many health risks including short-term and long-term conditions such as:

  • Sour throat
  • Eye and skin irritation
  • Breathing difficulties, shortness of breath
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Visual impairment
  • Respiratory (Pulmonary) Diseases
  • Bronchitis
  • Stroke
  • Heart Disease
  • Asthma
  • Lung Cancer

Multiple studies found that exposure to wildfire smoke can cause the irreversible changes to the immune system, while significantly increasing the chances of developing asthma and lung infection.
Many studies strongly suggest that exposure to wildfire smoke can have a permanent effect on our immune system, changes that can be passed on to future generations.

Removal of Particulates in Wildfire Smoke

The particulates in wildfire smoke have a size range between 0.4 and 0.7 microns (micrometers).
True HEPA filter can trap over 99.97% of all solid sub-micron airborne particulates in the wildfire smoke as small as down to 0.3 micron in size.
Therefore, it is essential that the air filtration system of air purifiers for wildfire smoke contains a large, perfectly sealed True HEPA filter.
The higher efficiency particle filters such as, 99.99% efficiency Super HEPA or 99.999% efficiency ULPA filters have even higher rate of removal of sub-micron particles. However, the tighter particulate filters may result in a reduced air flow and lower overall performance due to a higher back pressure from a more dense filter media.

Removal of Chemicals in Wildfire Smoke

Large amount of activated carbon adsorbent is absolutely critical for effective removal of most chemicals in wildfire smoke.
The specialty enhanced adsorbent have a higher adsorption capacity in trapping VOCs (volatile organic compounds), ammonia, formaldehyde and many other hard to remove specific chemicals.
Therefore, large amount of adsorbent in the air purifier's air filtration system is absolutely vital for effective removal of most regular and specific chemicals in wildfire smoke.

The combination of both, True HEPA filter and large amount of activated carbon adsorbent (specialty enhanced adsorbent in particular) in the air purifier air filtration system will render the best possible air cleaning result in purifying the air from most air pollutants and air contaminants in wildfire smoke.

Rate of Wildfire Smoke Removal

The number of Air Changes per Hour (ACH) indicating how many time the air purifier can draw the entire volume of polluted air through the air filtration system is another factor of major importance.
It directly affects the rate of removal of air pollutants and the size of a maximum cleaning area, in which the air purifier can effectively maintain smoke-free environment.

For that reason, the air purifiers with higher Air Flow rating CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) capable to provide the higher number of air changes per hour (ACH), are better air purifiers for effective purifying of the air in your home or office from wildfire smoke.
