Over 1 million acres of forest land are on fire in this state and my family and I live very close to one area that has been burning for the past 3 months.
The indoor air quality in our home is extremely poor.
Unfortunately, the problem has been compounded by the fact that our nation is already in the middle of an emergency. We don’t have the necessary supplies to clean the air in our home, because all of the air purifier machines are out of stock due to the Coronavirus. Air purifier machine sales are up 70% over the past three months and many well-known name brands are out of stock online and in the store. My wife and I had to come up with a way to help the indoor air quality in our home, because we were coughing, sneezing, and experiencing other symptoms from the intense smoke and ash. The Home Improvement store has several air filters in stock, so I bought a dozen that are specifically made to trap odors and pollutants. I used to air filters to make a triangle box behind the fan. My wife and I placed the makeshift air purifier in the front room by the door. As air travels through the home, dust, dirt, smoke, and ash become trapped in the air filters. So far, the makeshift air purifier is working well. I can tell that the air filters are trapping particles that would otherwise be in the air. It’s not the best solution to our ongoing problem, but at least it will provide some relief during these difficult times.
