How do I know if my air is clean?

If you are looking at a larger scope and wanting to see the air quality index and PM values for your outdoor environment, there are apps that provide real-time measurements, however, that doesn’t realistically tell you what the air quality in your indoor environment is. There is also the interpretation of the word “clean”. Because there are different threshold values in different parts of the world, the term “clean” is up to interpretation. This includes how particle sizes are measured and how they are calculated. A better alternative would be, “How do I know if my air is “healthy”; or “good”.

One’s indoor air quality is dependent on many factors: The size of the area, the building’s materials, the contents in the area, the type of ventilation, how many are in the area, and what is being done in the environment. The best way is to either buy a separate air quality monitor/particle counter, or contact an air specialist, like us, to come and measure your indoor environment. Feel free to contact us if you would like your environment to be measured and/or you have any questions relating to your air quality. You can reach us at: info@qleanair.com

Will an air purifier/cleaner help alleviate my allergy symptoms?

Symptoms from allergies vary from how they are acquired. For instance there are allergies obtained by contact dermatitis, food allergies/ingestion, and allergies that are acquired from airborne particles. An enhanced air filtration system like those from QleanAir Scandinavia significantly reduce symptoms from allergies caused by airborne contaminants, including pollen, hair, dander, smoke, particles from food, dust, etc.

Another benefit is the significant reduction in the spread of airborne viruses. For more detailed information on this, click here for technical info and here for tips.

Is it safe to breathe the air in polluted areas?

The short answer is, it depends when and where. As an example, China is continuously working on improving their air quality, but there are days; especially in bigger cities like Beijing and Shanghai, where the air quality is significantly worse than WHO’s (World Health Organization) and EU standards. Also, The Marriott Hotels in Shanghai are offering QleanAir Rooms that have enhanced air quality. QleanAir Scandinavia is also helping offices, gyms, restaurants, and schools throughout China through our solutions, including our QleanAir Offices, and QleanAir Gyms.

How does a smoking cabin work?

Not all smoking cabins are created equal. QleanAir Scandinavia’s smoking cabins and smoking lounges work by implementing a powerful air filtration system that incorporates particle filters (HEPA), as well as gas filters (carbon), to trap the expelled smoke coming from the person smoking and at the end of the burning cigarette. Along with our patented filtration system that traps the air contaminants, we also provide a fireproof ash handling system. To get a bigger picture of how businesses benefit from having a smoking cabin, view this page. To see a list of smoking cabin models and their technical specification, click here.

What is a HEPA filter?

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air and is a filter classification within the EU norm EN1822. There is always a classification attached to the HEPA (ex HEPA 14). If it says something else (ex: HEPA Quality, HEPA Rated etc) it is most likely not a HEPA filter.

Will HEPA filters reduce odors?

Odors are normally present in gas form and will not be trapped in a particle filter. Particles can also smell like grease, aerosols or tar particles. To reduce odors you need filters that absorb gases, like activated carbon filters.
