Air Filters

Clean Air

Maintaining clean air in your WDB after remediation, or in your new unaffected space,  is critically important for the CIRS-WDB affected person.

As a measure of assistance prior to remediation and or prior to moving some CIRS-WDB patients will also incorporate air filters in their strategy to improve their breathable air.

Even low dose, very brief exposures to a biotoxin will fire up the flames of inflammation in susceptible people. Preventing inhalation of noxious substances when you are out in the wider world will be a process of trial and error, but when in the sanctuary of your home an air filter or air purifier will make an enormous difference to the toxin load you inhale.

Many air filters make claims of efficiently cleaning the air they filter but not all machines are capable of performing this task. The filter media used is important and so is the size of the particulates that are being filtered through this media. It is suggested that you do your due diligence when choosing a filter.

Many CIRS-WDB patients in Australia rely on IQAir filters or Inovaair filters and these units are available as portable, being on castors, so they can be wheeled from room to room. They both use hospital grade HEPA filters and are fitted with activated carbon filter cartridges. Both are certified to remove particulates, chemical pollutants, allergens and spores to 0.3micron.  The IQ HealthPro Series and the IQ GC Multigas Series of air filters has been independently certified to HyperHEPA filtration to filter 99.5% of particles down to 0.003 microns. Many homes use these particular filters for asthma sufferers.

Another brand which is preferred by our American CIRS-WDB friends is Austin Air filters, which some Australian patients import.

Similar features are found on all these machines and so price point is one of the only differences.

Again, it is recommended that you do your due diligence before parting with your dollars.
