Breathe Easy


Are you apartment and condo dwellers? If it is so, you may probably understand the problem of secondhand smoke wafting into your homes. Meanwhile, your frequently asked questions should be “Will an air purifier work?” “Where do I put it?” Here I share some of the ideas and tips concerning the use of air purifiers.

You will need an air purifier that can remove the hundreds of particulate and chemicals in smoke. An air purifier with HEPA filtration will help remove the chemicals and gases in smoke. Cheaper air purifier models found in home improvement stores typically have a few ounces of activated carbon, whereas an air purifier that can truly clean up the smoke contains pounds.

Where do I put the air purifier?

If it is clear where the secondhand smoke is entering the dwelling, place the air purifier near it. If unclear, keep it in your main living area during the day and move it to the bedroom at night. If you prefer not to move it, the highest priority location is the bedroom. This is because the respiratory system slows down during sleeping hours when one needs clean air most.

Will an air purifier really help with secondhand smoke?

Yes it will. I tried it and I’m still using air purifiers to remove my husband’s smoke (he’s a constant smoker).When you change the filter for the first time and see the tar and gunk that is in the filter, you will be horrified, but you will also be a believer!

Smoke Cabin

Smoke Cabin

Smoke Solution develops a set of efficient filtering system that can remove most of the airborne pollutants. There is an automatic motion sensor installed in each of the cabin and alternatively regulates the speed of the filtering system according to the movement inside the cabin. For their filters, Smoke Solution uses its own produced CO 2 neutral coconut charcoal. The harvest of the coconut shells is in a sustainable manner, without posing any harm to palm trees, animal habitats or the environment.

The ashtrays of the smoking cabins are fireproof and self-extinguishable. Lighted cigarette thrown into the ashtray will be extinguished and thus remove the risk of fire. Smoke cabins are modular and freestanding, they can be resized and relocated to fit in different locations, and follow the user patterns.
