Most of manufacturers of the air purifiers in the market show their CADR value to help consumers choose suitable air purifiers.
But… what is the CADR value?
CADR means Clean Air Delivery Rate. The higher CADR value of the air purifier, the higher the amount of clean air is released per hour.
SGS and some other third-party testing agencies do more detailed experiments:
PM2.5: Exhaust gas from automobiles and motorcycles/factories, second-hand smoke, cooking oil fume.
Environmental allergens, germs: pollen, dust mites, dust, bacteria
Organic gases: formaldehyde and sulfur dioxide from construction and decoration materials, furniture, household appliances, and cleaning agents
…And other particle filtration efficiency test.
Manufacturers that have undergone these third-party tests are basically not stingy to provide information, so consumers can ask manufacturers for test reports if they want.
Don’t forget that there are 200,000 mold spores suspend in per cubic meter of air. With so many mold hyphae and spores, can the air purifiers really filter all spores effectively? How can this be detected?
YCM provides professional consulting services and precise experiment, which can help you detect the effectiveness of the air purifiers, whether it can effectively reduce the mold spores in the air, and even work with the air conditioning system to purify the air for the entire space.
Therefore, to make the air more clean in your home, only filtering the air pollution such as bacteria, PM2.5, and formaldehyde is not enough.
And maybe there are some available upgrage for the products you are using to filter mold and control moldy risks, but you didn’t notice.
