Final Thoughts on Comparing Masks
Once, you know the right type of filtration needed for your specific needs, consider other things like size, fit, and price. Ask yourself questions like, does it have disposable filters, and is it washable? Carbon filters are ideal for odors, chemicals and smoke. This type of mask filter adsorb gaseous pollutants. From household cleaners and perfumes to car exhaust and tobacco smoke, facemasks with activated carbon or charcoal are an excellent choice. For standard particle filtration, a HEPA or HEPA style filter is your best option. These trap particles large and small.
Different types of media offer different types and levels of filtration. Not all masks are NIOSH rated (this can be an expensive and long process to obtain certification). Independent labs also verify and test some masks. Price, as well as color are also considerations. If you ever have any questions regarding the use of a mask, feel free to submit an FAQ on any mask page. Questions are usually answered in less than 24 hours (longer during weekends). Live chat is also an option as is emailing or calling. We want you to find the mask that best meets your needs and hope this compare page helps you in that effort.For more information on how to select an allergy mask, visit our Allergy Mask Buying Guide below.
