Remove airborne smoke, chemicals, odors and particles with our exclusive activated carbon +HEPA air purifiers for wildfire smoke.
Remove up to 99.99% of fine airborne particles with Super HEPA or medical-grade filtration.
Expert industrial chemical and odor filtration with the deepest activated carbon filters and a special carbon blend to better treat the complex pollutants associated with wildfire activity.
Robust industrial design for reliable, continuous 24/7 operation. Change pre-filters in seconds with no tools.
An AllerAir air purifier for wildfire smoke cleans smoky air in several steps:
• A pre-filter removes larger particles and prevents the main filters in the air purifier from clogging.
• The HEPA traps 99.97% of fine airborne particles that pass through the filter.
• The deep-bed activated carbon filter adsorbs airborne chemicals, gases and odors.
While HEPA filters are fairly standard, activated carbon filters can vary in quality and effectiveness. The granular activated carbon used in an air purifier works like a sponge to soak up airborne chemicals, gases and odors. The capacity of that “sponge” depends on its depth and size. The more activated carbon used in an air purifier, the more chemicals, gases and odors it can adsorb.
Note: An air purifier may help improve indoor air quality, but can’t save you from an encroaching wildfire. Always follow public advisories and immediately seek medical attention if anyone you know shows signs of a health problem.
Wildfire smoke poses a significant health risk and is a major source of fine particle pollution in the western U.S. and Canada.
As wildfire smoke can travel rapidly, even communities hundreds of miles outside the main burn zone can be affected. If you live in an area prone to wildfires, choosing the right air purifier can help improve indoor air quality in the event of a fire.
The emissions from wildfire smoke include a range of pollutants such as fine particulate, carbon monoxide, chemicals and volatile organic compounds. Of particular concern is the fine particulate, because 80 to 90% of wildfire smoke particulate is less than 2.5 microns in diameter and can penetrate deep into the body.
Even a marginal increase in this type of pollution has been linked to numerous health problems from headaches to respiratory issues and even heart attacks. Although healthy people can be affected when the smoke concentration is high, people who are at the greatest risk of experiencing health issues due to wildfire smoke include young children, pregnant women, older adults, and those with conditions such as asthma or heart disease.

Our standard “EXEC” carbon blend has a very large internal surface area and works exceptionally well for a wide range of air pollutants.
The “Vocarb” carbon blend is our most recommended and best-selling specialty carbon blend. Vocarb stands for Volatile organic compounds or VOCs and this include a variety of chemicals that can cause a range of health problems including shortness of breath, headaches, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and eye, nose, lung and throat irritation. Some VOC's are suspected to cause cancer in humans and have been shown to cause cancer in animals. The long-term health effects caused by VOC's would depend on the concentration and length of exposure.
Some chemicals adhere better to different types of carbon materials and carbon blends. Over the years we’ve sourced and developed over 40 carbon blends. If you have an odor or chemical you need to remove, we have a blend to target it
