Safeguard Window Filters Customer Q & A

Safeguard Window Filters Product Details
Q1: Do these filters block out chemical odors from outside or are they just for pollen? When my neighbors do wash, burn wood in their backyard pits or spray their lawns, I can't have the windows open because of MCS. It's hard to let the fresh air in when there isn't any. Thanks!

A: Particles only. While some components of wood smoke and other chemicals are large enough to be trapped by particle filtration, such as that used by these filters, the majority of the pollutants that make up chemicals or smoke is not. These particles need to be adsorbed with carbon or oxidized to be removed or rendered inert. So if you do use the window filters you may still notice odors/chemicals passing through.

Q2: How often do you need to change these?

A: Every 6 to 12 months, but this will vary depending on your location and the level of pollution in the air and time of year. In areas where pollen is heavier or pollution is more prevalent, you will want to lean towards 6 months. For most other places, an annual change will suffice. In the coming months, look for replacement cartridges for these filters to appear on our site. You simple remove the end cap, slide out the old cartridge and slide a new on in.
