Can Intellipure® air purifiers help improve air impacted by wildfire smoke?

Yes, Intellipure® air purifiers are effective at removing particles and airborne chemicals that are created by wildfire smoke. DFS technology can remove and eliminate ash and soot from the indoor air caused by wildfires. This includes odors created by wildfire smoke.

Wildfire smoke primarily consists of water vapor, ultrafine particles, and dangerous gases. These gases commonly include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide nitrogen oxide, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's). The exact composition of wildfire smoke can vary based on changes like the temperature, what is burning, and the wind. 

According to the EPA, smoke from wildfires in the United States is adversely affecting air quality and potentially putting more people at health risk from smoke exposure. To learn more about wildfire smoke from the EPA website, click here.
