What Does 3-in-1 Air Cleaner Means

This 3 in 1 feature is what makes Guardian Technologies, the manufacturer, proud of the Germguardian AC4825 as it incorporate 3 air purification methods which get the dirty air in and sends the purified air out. The three air filtration stages are : Carbon layer pre-filter, HEPA Filter and UV-C Technology.
In the first stage, large particles like lint, hair and dust which are found indoors are trapped via the pre-filter using activated carbon along with a charcoal filter. Another benefit of the carbon layer is its ability to help remove bad odors like tobacco smoke, cooking and household pets.
The second step is where the True HEPA Filter comes into play. HEPA means high-efficiency particulate air which is an air filter that works mechanically to make the air get throught a fine mesh in order to catch harmful particles. According to Guardian Technologies, this HEPA Filter is able to capture up to 99.97% of airborne allergens such as pet dander, pollen, mold spores and more importantly household dust.
During the third stage, the UV-C light (Ultraviolet light), which is a disinfection method with Titanium Dioxide, works via short-wavelenght to kill airborne germs and bacteria.

Clean Air Delivery Rate

the AC4825 is CADR rated 100+ (Clear Air Delivery Rate), meaning it’s an air purifier cabale of cleaning rooms up to 155 square because it’s able to deliver 100 cubic feet of clean air per minute. The 155 square is sufficient for majority of bedrooms. In order to keep the unit running smoothly, the filters got be vacuumed once every two weeks on average and changed every six/eight months depending on how often you use the air purifier.

Fan Speed

Like all efficient air purifiers, the Germguardian AC4825 is equipped with a fan which you can control its peed. The fan has three speed settings : low, medium and high. The manufacturer mentions that the lowest speed is ultra-quiet. Some customers have noticed that when the fan is on the high speed, you can start to hear white noise. When it’s daytime, I don’t think that it would be a problem, but at night it’s better to turn it to the low level to have a good sleep.

The AC4825’s Design

The look of the Germguardian AC4825 is an absolute success, definitely the best designed air purifier I have seen. Modern looking, sleek lines with a nice dark black casing and lazer blue LED light makes it a nice looking decor which you can put almost anywhere in your home without compromising the interior design.

Germguardian AC4825’s Reputation

This air purifier model is a Best Seller in Amazon in the HEPA Filter Air Purifiers category with more than 4000 customer reviews and a approximatively 4.5 stars rating. This means that many customers are satisfied and have put very positive comments, but I have to mention that I have come across someone who have complained about it because he have scented from te first week the smell of burned plastic. A part from this one, the majority of review are very positive.

What is Silicosis

Silicosis is a lung disease caused by inhaling too much of a naturally-occurring crystal that is called silica dust and which can be found mainly in rocks and sand, which means sandblasters, glass workers, and mining workers are exposed to this type of dust.

According to MedlinePlus, there are three types of silicosis : Chronic, Accelerated and Acute silicosis.

Silicosis Cure

Like every progressive disease, looking for the starting point from which the disease comes is the first step to limit the exposure. In order to prevent the disease from getting worse, you must stop the source of silica exposure. Healthline reported that there is no specific medical treatment to silicosis. Only respiratory infections and symptoms can be treated or reduced by using antibiotics and cough medicine.Oxygen masks are also used by some silicosis sufferers.

Other methods to prevent Silicosis :

  • When drilling, grinding, cutting use wet methods and water sprays.
  • For cleaning surfaces, avoid using compressed air
  • Eat and drink away from crystalline silica dust.
  • Use local ventilation and blasting cabinets.
