Staying indoors is not the solution as smog affects both indoor and outdoor air. Considering the increasing pollution, we at KENT provide the best air purifiers in India that remove indoor air pollutants. In addition to using the room air purifier, you can also use technology to stay safe from the harmful effects of air pollution. So, in this blog, we discuss 5 effective ways you can use technology to fight choking air pollution.

Checking the air quality when stepping out can be of great help. Considering the increasing level of air pollution, a number of apps have been developed to keep a track of the air quality index.

Air purifying bulb is an ionizer that emits negatively charged ions that attach to the pollutants present in the air. The negatively charged particles settle down on the floor like dust. Ideal for small areas, the air-purifying bulbs remove dust, and smoke from cigarettes, cooking materials, and incense sticks.
Get a Humidifier
Humidifiers not only regulate the temperature during winter but also maintain humidity levels. When the indoor humidity level is low, the negative impact of indoor air pollutants increases drastically. Humidifiers maintain the humidity so that your nasal passages get the right level of moisture and get rid of allergens.
