Tips To Help Protect Yourself From Wildfire Smoke

  • 1 min read

When you find yourself in need of fresh air during wildfire season, what can you do? Here are some ways to protect yourself from wildfire smoke.

1. Stay Inside

Keep doors and windows closed to keep wildfire smoke out of your home and avoid using fans that draw outdoor air into your house. Wearing an N95 mask and avoiding the use of gas-powered appliances (such as gas stoves and ovens) will also help protect your lungs from further exposure to smoke and fumes.

 

How To Create a Clean Air Space in Your Home

  • Choose a room that fits your whole family to be your clean air space
  • Close windows and doors, but make sure you can exit easily
  • Use an air purifier
  • Avoid frying foods and using gas-powered appliances
  • Stay cool and comfortable with filtered air conditioning
  • Wipe away settled particles with a damp cloth

2. Use an Air Purifier

Even if you’re keeping your doors and windows closed as often as possible, smoke and pesky airborne particles may still find their way into your home. Not only do air purifiers help improve indoor air circulation and neutralize smoky odors, but they can help remove PM2.5 (Particulate Matter 2.5 microns in size) from your air.

 

And don’t forget to check and change your air purifier filters regularly, especially during wildfire season.

The Core 400S uses three-stage filtration to effectively refresh the air in medium to large rooms, removing dust, pollen, smoke, smoke particles, fumes, and more from your indoor atmosphere.

3. Avoid Outdoor Activities

Because we tend to breathe more heavily when exercising, try to avoid strenuous activities in areas affected by wildfire smoke.

4. Stay in the Know

Check your local Air Quality Index levels to know when you should avoid going outside.

5. Evacuation Preparation

Here are some steps you can take in the event of an evacuation. And remember, always listen to and follow the instructions of local authorities.
