The air in your home may be dirtier than you realise. The fact is that indoor air can be much more polluted than outdoor air, even in the world’s largest and most heavily industrialised cities. Everyone is at risk to some extent, but babies and young children are among the most vulnerable to air pollutants in the home. Using an air purifier in the nursery will go a long way towards protecting your baby and preventing long-term health problems. And using the right air purifiers elsewhere in the house, depending on the size of the rooms and how much they are used, will boost your family’s first line of defence. Vicks has moved beyond the sick room to contribute to the whole family’s well-being. With an air purifier from Vicks, everyone in your family will breathe better and get a good night’s sleep. Improving your respiratory well-being People are becoming increasingly aware of air quality and want to live in a clean home environment. They understand that by breathing better, they—and their family—can live better. This is particularly important for small children, whose immune systems are still developing and can suffer from excessive exposure to air pollutants. Many people, adults included, are unknowingly sensitive to certain air pollutants and will breathe easier and feel healthier in a clean-air environment. Today, one in three people suffers from an allergy, and the number of allergy sufferers dramatically increases with the level of air pollution. Pollutants in the home can include harmful gases and particles such as germs, viruses, dust, bacteria, pollen, mould spores, animal dander, smog, tobacco, smoke and soot. Particles less than 10 microns in size, which may include simple dust, can pass through the nose and throat and go directly into the lungs The Vicks HEPA Air Purifier filters out 97% of impurities with a micron size of 2 or larger. A micron is the unit of measure applied to air bourne particles. The table below shows the average micron size of some of the particles found in the air which may irritate a person. This Vicks Air Purifier will pick up most of these through its HEPA type filter, i.e. Human Hair, Pollen, Pet Dander and some dust dependent on its size.
The product works to clean the air as shown in the diagram below. The washable pre filter filters the initial and larger impurities, the Carbon, HEPA and ionizer then work to filter the remaining impurities with up to 97% effectiveness. Ionizers omit ozone and there is conflicting data as to whether this is suitable for asthma sufferers. The Vicks V-9071E has an optional ionizer so this can be utilized at your own discretion. The HEPA and Carbon filters (RPAP-9071/16200) have a life expectancy of approx 6 months dependent on the usage of the product and the quality of the air, replacement filters are readily available. The Air Purifier has an electronic filter change reminder so it is easy to know when a new filter is required. The Vicks V-9071E HEPA Air Purifier is an ideal way to provide cleaner, fresher air to your home. Perfect for people with allergies it could work to provide some relief from symptoms.
