Controlling Your Personal Air
by Building Inspector and Indoor Air Specialist, Dan Schilling
What is a personal air purifier?
A personal air purifier is an invaluable device that allows you to control the quality of the air for approximately 18 inches around your face. They are capable of killing mold and bacteria in your personal air space and help protect you from airborne allergens.
Do they work?
I fell in love with this tiny air purifier and got to know the inventor who had chronic asthma. I use these in airplanes and during air quality inspections in buildings with untreated air. Unfortunately most of the buildings I work in during investigations have pretty bad air quality. Whether it's choking on cat dander, inhaling sewer gas, or losing my voice from high levels of mold in the air, it doesn't happen anymore because of this little device.
Additionally, I have inspected homes where the owners could not even live in their own homes due to mold contamination. On one home, the owner could not be in the house for more than five minutes without experiencing severe breathing problems. I let her use one of these personal air purifiers to see if it would allow her to follow me through the inspection. She was in the house for over four hours without a problem. I uncovered the mold conditions requiring attention and then placed a larger version of this air purification technology in her home. She also had a problem at the school where she was a teacher. She could not control the air quality in the school, so she took charge of her own personal air space by purchasing one of these incredible little air purifiers.
The personal air purifiers sell for $149.00 each. They weigh only 1.5 ounces and will operate on just one camera battery for over 60 hours. The mini-purifier can be worn with the neck strap as pictured, or hung on a shirt with the clip on the back. Fast on / fast off.
with those you care about.
