Wildfire smoke can be worse
than other air pollutants.

What’s the problem with wildfires hitting the country this season?

Many have observed that wildfires have gone stronger, bigger and are now more frequent than ever. Unfortunately, more wildfires mean increased air pollution, and increased air pollution spells problems for those with respiratory issues in their bodies.

Health-wise, wildfire smoke can wreak havoc on those with respiratory issues. This means more visits to hospital ERs or even admission and at some point, while dangers of heart attack can lead to emergency room visits, hospitalizations and even an increased risk of death.

Air Pollutants in Wildfire:

So don’t take the air we breathe for granted. Being able to breathe is such a luxury already these days, with all the wildfires happening in the US. Add to that the coronavirus threat, where the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its Delta variant can remain in the air and is likewise dangerous because of its high transmissibility.

Some experts say you can track hurricanes and other weather phenomena. Sadly, that’s not the same with wildfires that are totally unpredictable how it will move and spread. Wildfires create more impact such as damage to infrastructure, the home and sadly, damage to people’s health, especially the most vulnerable ones such as the kids and the elderly, pregnant women, and practically any adult with respiratory problems such as asthma, for example.

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said that when wildfires burn near you, expect the smoke to reach the populated areas as well. The CDC said wildfire smoke is a mix of gases and fine particles from burning trees and plants, buildings, and other material that can bring sickness to anyone, especially the wildfire responders who are at front and center of every wildfire.

Testimonials

Great product, great support!

We are using it in a Building Science instruction center and it reads with good accuracy side by side with some of the other commercial-grade handheld sensors. This product is super easy to integrate with IFTTT products. It is really cool stuff! Indoor Air Quality is very important and often not measured. I think products like this are an important step in better human health.

I would buy again!

I was worried about how difficult the setup would be, as I’m in my 60’s and not totally computer savvy. I needn’t have worried as this was a very easy product to get up and running. I love the security of seeing the air quality in my house! I find myself checking it several times daily!

Best on the market.

My uncle is an asthmatic and was hospitalized again last week. Having a log of the air quality was useful as his most recent trouble seems to correlate with a huge spike in PM2.5 & VOCs in the days before. Getting a notification about the air quality might help prevent an issue next time.
