Why we need to use Dust Mask aka Dust Respirator
Our survival specialists recommend to have a pack of disposable dust makes close to your first aid kit and to use them anytime you engage in activities that might produce dust, such as spray painting, grinding or sweeping.
If you are a fan of do-it-yourself projects (such as building, tilting, insulating a building) or you just like spending time outdoors gardening mowing or blowing leaves you should protect your health by wearing a dust mask to breathe more easily, safer and more comfortable. Every dirty job or any job which involves dust should be the moment when you reach out to your disposable dust mask pack (link products).
The dust particles can be considered dangerous if we take into account the dust amount in the air and how long someone has been exposed to it. Dust particles that are small enough to be inhaled may cause irritation of the eyes to hay fever. Especially if you have a respiratory condition or a family history as asthma even small increases in dust concentrations can worsen the symptoms.
If you need to disinfect your home and plan to use different chlorine-based cleaning products you should wear a dust mask. If any of the products used have a label that states “avoid breathing vapors or mist” it is mandatory to wear a respirator. The respirator allows you to clean your house without having your nasal pages or sinuses irritated.
The mask is lightweight and humidity-resistant; filter media offers lower breathing resistance and is latex-free; soft, odorless and non-irritating
Respirator Safety Tips
- Notice Smells: Change the filter if you notice any changes in smells or taste; or if your throat, nose, or lungs become irritated.
- Breathe Easy: You should also change your respirator if it becomes clogged and hard to breathe through.
- Keep Dry: Many respirators, especially disposable ones, become ineffective if they get wet.
- Follow Instructions: Replace filters as instructed on the package.
- Don’t Reuse: Disposable respirators aren’t meant to be used more than once.
- Throw Away if Broken: Discard any respirator or filter canister that is dirty or damaged. Replace gas masks if rubber seals are damaged
What Type Particulate Filter Should I Buy?
If you’re looking for the highest level of protection in the widest variety of situations, go for P100, which will filter out 100% of both oil-based and non-oil-based particles.
When choosing a dust mask, consider:
- Masks with an adjustable nosepiece offer a tighter fit.
- Disposable masks with foam face seals will be more comfortable and a little more effective.
- Masks with an exhalation valve will make breathing easier.
- For highly toxic particles (such as asbestos), choose a non-disposable mask with sealing gaskets.
