In the Aftermath: Smoke Odor and Fine Particulate Matter a Serious Concern

CHAMPLAIN, N.Y., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California residents fortunate enough to be returning to intact homes will likely have to deal with high levels of fine airborne particulate matter and strong, lingering smoke odor.

"It's vital that people who live in the affected areas equip themselves with tools that offer serious protection against airborne particulate matter and offer some relief from smoke odor," says Sam Teitelbaum, President of AllerAir Industries, manufacturers of advanced HEPA-carbon air purifiers. "High levels of smoke carry large particles that settle in the upper respiratory track and very fine particles which penetrate deep into the lungs."

Anyone, including healthy people may be affected by smoke particulate, however older adults, people with pre-existing respiratory conditions and children are more likely to suffer from serious health complications. It's important to remember that smoke easily travels and can affect communities hundreds of miles away from the primary burn zone.

"We'd also like to remind those investigating personal protective equipment and odor controllers, that standard paper dust masks you can buy at the hardware store cannot protect you from fine airborne particle matter," cautions Teitelbaum. "And if you're considering the purchase of an air cleaner or air purifier, keep in mind that a HEPA-only unit cannot remove smoke odor. Look for a product that contains pounds of activated carbon."

AllerAir is a manufacturer of advanced residential, commercial and industrial air purification systems who specialize in chemical, gas, odor and particle abatement. Their products are currently being used by hospitals, police departments, the military and thousands of American families.

For more information on how an AllerAir air purifier with activated carbon and HEPA filtration can safeguard your health and remove smoke odor, contact an indoor air quality expert today: 1-888-852-8247 or live online at Experts are standing by between 11am and 8pm Pacific Time. A portion of the proceeds of any unit shipped to California in October and November will be donated to the American Red Cross.
