Removing the most harmful particles.
LightAir air purifiers are developed with the outset of removing the finest and most harmful particles to keep you healthy.
Indoor air pollution is a much bigger problem than you can ever imagine?
There is a growing public awareness and knowledge about poor indoor air quality and its alarming health effects. More and more people are suffering from asthma, allergies and heart and vascular disease as a direct cause of polluted air. There are also less urgent health problems related to the indoor air quality like fatigue, headache and concentration difficulties that millions of people struggle with every day.
The fact is that the World Health Organization estimates that it is as much as 4.6 million people who die each year from causes directly attributable to air pollution. That is one crazy and very scary number!!!
Indoor air pollution can be up to 100 times worse than the outdoor air even in the most polluted cities. The indoor air is thus affected by both pollutants from the outside such as traffic fumes, pollen, industrial pollution, and indoor pollutants such as dust, smoke, VOCs, virus, and pet allergens.
The bad guys!
Fine and ultrafine particles
Fine particles are the reason why air pollution is the leading environmental threat to human health. But what are fine particles? Many people have heard of PM 2.5, but what does it mean? PM is an abbreviation for Particle Matter which is a mixture of solid particles and liquid droplets found in the air. And 2.5 refers to the diameter of the particle in microns, which is 1 millionth of a meter.
Particles smaller than PM 2.5 or particles with a diameter of generally 2.5 microns or less are called fine particles. Although they are not visible to the human eye unless they accumulate, most of the particles that deposit deep in our lungs and enter our bloodstream are even smaller than PM2.5. These extremely small particles, PM0.1 and below, particles with a diameter 0.1 microns or less, are called ultra-fine particles or nano particles. Research have shown that these particles represent more than 90% of all the particles indoors making it crucial for air purifiers to catch these particles if they are to have any significant effect in cleaning the air in your room and keeping you healthy.
LightAir air purifiers were developed with the outset of removing the finest and most harmful particles. According to third-party governmental tests, LightAir air purifiers can remove particles from PM10.0 all the way down to PM 0.007 meaning that we keep your air virtually free from the harmful particles you want to avoid.
90% of all particles? Complicated?
Let us explain…
Unfortunately most filter based air purifiers only catch PM0.3 and some down to PM0.1, leaving over 90% of all particles in your indoor air. Smog, traffic pollution, virus, combustion from coal power plants, mold mycotoxins are all finer than PM0.1. These particles cause severe health problems such as cardio- and vascular disease, COPD, cancer, and asthma. Our LightAir IonFlow air purifiers use negative ions, not filters, to effectively remove particles all the way down to 0.007 microns.
For your health.

How can I improve my indoor air environment?
It is unfortunately not as simple as open your window and let in some “fresh” air, especially not if you live in a big city. The outdoor air in cities is dangerous and should pass through the ventilation system before entering. A good advice to solve air quality problems in apartments, homes and offices, involve actions like eliminating or controlling the sources of pollution, increasing ventilation, and installing air purifiers.
