West Coast wildfires contribute to an already depleted supply of portable air purifiers
The COVID-19 pandemic increased the demand of portable air systems

Bonita Springs, Fla. – Indoor air quality has been one of the many concerns that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the spotlight in 2020. Americans turned to portable air systems to increase airflow exchange and attempt to filter out airborne aerosolized contaminants, causing an uncommon scarcity in the portable air purification market. The massive wildfires ravaging the West Coast only contribute to this already existing deficit, and residents find it hard to combat smoke-related health issues inside their own homes and businesses. 

As Los Angeles experiences the worst air quality in over 25 years, many residents have disclosed their difficulty in breathing and how the wildfire smoke affects their quality of life. According to the American Lung Association, smoke and ash coming from wildfires can be extremely harmful to the lungs, especially for the elderly, children, and those with existing respiratory problems. The small size of particles, the amount of carbon monoxide (CO) and the amount of nitrogen oxide contained in smoke are all contributing factors to these ailments.

A fairly common solution to protect the air in homes affected by wildfires is the addition of HEPA air purifiers that can filter these small particles, and eliminate gasses and odors associated with the smoke. However, the COVID-19 pandemic caused a depletion in air purifiers all over the country, as many states have imposed air quality regulations in businesses and schools. The CDC recommends the use of portable air cleaners running continuously in one or more rooms to protect yourself from wildfire smoke during the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, many West coast residents are unable to acquire one due to the recent shortfall. 

According to Google Trends, the search for air purifiers is at the highest it’s been in the last five years. A recent report has shown that the industry will continue to rise until 2027 due to the increase in urban cities’ pollution and the prevalence of airborne diseases. EnviroKlenz, a Florida-based company, has expanded its operations to support the demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. With decades of experience in providing indoor air quality solutions, EnviroKlenz is actively assisting customers and businesses affected by wildfires to provide them with advanced indoor environment results made readily available.

“The EnviroKlenz air purifier made a huge difference in dealing with intense amounts of smoke from this year’s California fire season. Easy to set up, industrial-build quality. I really could not be happier with the results,” disclosed Josh Thanos, a California resident centrally located in the Creek wildfires.

In a time where supply is low and demand is unseemly high, EnviroKlenz has made the initiative to continue to supply to the residents most in need and affected by the recent fires. 

During these challenging times is when the EnviroKlenz team works in overdrive to get our product out in a timely manner. Even though we would love to say we can supply every resident and business affected by the wildfires, what we can say is that as long as we have the ability to supply, we will prioritize all orders for customers and businesses located in the states impacted most by wildfire smoke, including Montana (MT), California (CA), Washington (WA), Arizona (AZ), Oregon (OR), Utah (UT), Colorado (CO), Nevada (NV), and Illinois (IL),” said EnviroKlenz VP of Operations, George Negron.
