Diwali is a time for celebration and merriment, unfortunately it is also a time when we see a great rise in pollution. Our cities bear up with bad air conditions all year around, but this increases drastically as we head into the festive season. Every year, after a night of fireworks and crackers, our cities wake up to a cloud of pollution and smog that continues to worsen the quality of air we breathe. The situation is not just a threat to our environment but also to our health. Such air pollution leads to breathing problems like bronchitis and asthma, among many others. This Diwali, the government may not have been able to ban firecrackers throughout the country but you can stop the smoke and toxins from entering your home and reaching your family by using an air purifier. Most air purifiers can capture anywhere between 85 to 99 percent particles. They also have filters that keep away allergen and impurities. Let’s take a look at some of the best air purifiers in the market so that you can pick the right one for your family.
