Manila, Philippines, November 5, 2015— Forest fires generated from pulp, paper, and palm oil production in West Java are choking Indonesia and neighboring countries in a thick blanket of haze, and the equatorial winds have brought the haze to the Philippines. Exposure to haze pollutants such as ozone, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide pose health risks, particularly respiratory and lung problems. Residents, especially those living in Mindanao and Cebu, should take precautionary measures to stay protected from these health hazards. One way is to use a Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifiers with Haze Mode, for clean and pollutant-free air inside the home.
PCI Technology: Purging the home of haze pollutants
With PCI Technology, those residing in areas affected by haze pollution can now worry less about airborne viruses and hazardous particles penetrating their homes. Certain models of Plasmacluster Air Purifier are equipped with Haze Mode, which is truly effective in getting rid of haze particles that manage to sneak indoors.
PCI Technology uses a natural air defense mechanism that reverses air pollution and eliminating 99% of airborne threats. When Plasmacluster Ions come in contact with airborne threats, OH radicals form on its surface. These OH radicals take away the hydrogen and decompose protein found in viruses, bacteria, microbes and allergens. Without protein, airborne threats are disabled and, in effect, deactivated. The hydrogen left combines with OH radicals, and together they transform into water which is released into the air.
Recently, researchers from the University of Tokyo Hospital discovered that using PCI Technology substantially reduces the dosage period and volume of medication prescribed for respiratory symptoms, especially in children with atopic asthma, while improving the condition of respiratory tract inflammation in patients with infantile atopic-type asthma. This means a stronger safeguard from respiratory and lung problems that come along with haze exposure.
Made even better with Haze Mode
Children, having smaller respiratory tracts, make them susceptible to respiratory conditions by inhaling harmful particles. Even adults, when exposed to pollution can cause asthma, chronic pulmonary disease, and recurring symptoms like coughing, difficulty breathing, and chest tightening. Protect the family from pollutants and dust brought in by haze. The powerful Haze Mode in select PCI Air Purifier models work together with True HEPA Filter, which captures 99.97% of particles as tiny as 0.3 microns.
Secure your home and protect the whole family by using a Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier with Haze Mode to ensure air that’s safe to breathe.
