Does activated charcoal remove dust?
This is the most asked question when purchasing Charcoal packs. The answer is, no! While carbon filters are effective at removing many types of gases and odors, they are ineffective at removing particles such as dust and pollen.
Activated bamboo charcoal air purifying bags work by removing not only dust particles and mold spores, but also cigarette odors and other unpleasant odors. Because bamboo charcoal has a much larger surface area for absorbing impurities, it performs better.
So, the question on our minds is, what pulls dust out of the air?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, high-efficiency particulate air filters, or HEPA filters, can remove 99.97 percent of dust particles with diameters of 3 microns (EPA). Air purifiers with a HEPA filter are currently the most effective at removing dust from your environment.
