Canada has recently experienced severe wildfires, and many areas are covered in thick smoke. And in the past few years, the outbreak of COVID-19 worldwide has also made people pay more attention to indoor air quality. Many people who have been infected with COVID-19 have not yet recovered from lung function damage and are again affected by wildfire smoke, which has a greater impact on the respiratory system. Both of these pose a great health risk to pregnant women, the elderly and the weak. At this time, air purifiers have become an effective solution because they can quickly filter out wildfire smoke, PM2.5 and other pollutants and provide cleaner indoor air.
The impact of wildfire smoke on health
Particulate matter (PM2.5) in wildfire smoke is the main threat to health. They can enter the lungs, and the smaller particles may cause more serious health problems. Long-term inhalation of PM2.5 can cause headaches, coughing, shortness of breath, heart disease and even cancer. In addition, wildfire smoke also contains sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds and other chemical substances, which will harm the human body.
The impact of COVID-19 on health
COVID-19 is a highly contagious viral infection that spreads mainly through droplets. Among infected people, some may have no obvious symptoms, but they can still spread the virus to others. Viral particles in the air can stay in indoor environments for a long time, making more people infected. People who are infected with COVID-19 have many people feel lung function decline, need a long process, they have higher air quality requirements, wildfire smoke pollution has a greater impact on them.
What kind of protection can air purifiers provide?
Air purifiers can effectively filter out smoke, PM2.5, viruses and other chemical pollutants in indoor air. For those who need special attention to air quality, air purifiers can provide extra protection.
- Choose the appropriate air purifier
When you buy an air purifier, you should pay attention to choosing a product that suits your family environment. Different air purifiers may have different functions and filtration systems, and need to be selected according to family needs.

- Regularly replace filters
The filter of the air purifier needs to be replaced regularly, usually every 6 months to 1 year, which will ensure its filtration effect. When facing more serious air pollution from wildfire smoke, filters need to be replaced more frequently.
