Protect yourself from coronavirus and enjoy improved air quality during quarantine.
The coronavirus pandemic is creating uncertain times across the globe. With self-quarantine recommendations in place to protect those around us, it is important to remember that you must breathe in good quality air while you are stuck indoors. Air filters are crucial for keeping contaminants out of your home and ensuring you have fresh, clean air to breathe.
The coronavirus is transmitted through the air. It can survive for up to three hours if it doesn’t land on a surface.
According to recent studies, COVID-19 can survive on:
- Copper for 4 hours
- Cardboard for 24 hours
- Plastic and Stainless Steel for up to 3 days
Filters That Protect You and Your Family
Even if you have not left your home, the coronavirus has the ability to enter your home through your air ducts and vents. It’s incredibly small size (0.1µm or 100 nanometers) allows the virus to easily slip into the smallest entrances. In order to prevent a virus of that size from entering your home, you would need to utilize a HEPA filter 99.97% and up. However, these filters are incredibly dense. It becomes too difficult for a furnace or air conditioning system to push air flow through these filters.
It’s important to remember, the virus cannot survive on its own. It requires a host to live on, so many of the particles the virus will attach itself to are 5µm or 500 nanometers in size. With a good quality filter, the virus infected particles will never make it into your home. Without a quality air filter, the virus-containing particles will penetrate the filter and land on various surfaces in your home.
In order to avoid sanitizing every surface area in your house multiple times a day, it’s important to go with the golden standard of air filtration – Golden Filters.
Benefits of Golden Filters
Aside from preventing the coronavirus from finding its way into your home, our filters provide you with the improved air quality you need and deserve during self-quarantine. Filters that have not been changed regularly or are of poor quality will allow dirt, allergens, and other contaminants into your home. These decrease the quality of the air you breathe, which can cause respiratory issues.
With Golden Filters, the number of contaminants that enter your home is slim to none. Our Infinite Gold 8 filter is MERV 8 rated, which means that they catch particles as small as 3µm or 300 nanometers to 10µm or 1,000 nanometers in size. Better still, our filters are reusable, which means you will not have to buy another filter for up to three years! We recommend washing your reusable air filter every 30 to 90 days to maintain high air quality.
Limit the Spread and Enjoy Better Air

While our filters are not the cure for COVID-19, they can help protect your loved ones from infection and ensure everyone in the home is breathing fresh, clean air.
