Wildfire smoke is a toxic mix of carbon monoxide, volatile organic carbon (VOCs) and particles. The particles are one of the most dangerous elements, particularly the small particles (also known as PM 2.5) and the ultrafine particles (also called nanoparticles). Particles can penetrate deep into lungs causing serious heart and lung issues and can be fatal for people suffering from heart disease, asthma and respiratory issues.
The best air purifier for wildfire smoke is the Airpura V600
which contains a true HEPA filter and 18-lbs of an activated carbon blend. In lab studies, the Airpura filtration system has been proven to mitigate most VOCs and toxic gases in the air. The 40 square feet of true medical grade HEPA will remove 99.97% of dangerous particles (including the dangerous ultrafine
particles) from your air.
