Get Fast Protection Against SARS-CoV-2 With The Defender Air Purifier

June 01, 2021

You’re getting ready for work and thinking about how many people you’ll be in contact with. Your N95 mask covers most of your face and leaves those exquisite indents that have become ‘your look’ these days.

You worry about bringing this invisible threat home to your most precious loved ones — every single day. Even with each precaution, you stress. There’s no shame in that. It’s been a bizarre and intense two years.

Do you have babies at home who can’t tell you how sick they feel?

Are you worried about your own underlying health issues?

Or an immunocompromised spouse?

Whatever reason you’re looking for additional protection from SARS-CoV-2 (commonly referred to as COVID-19), FilterQueen is here to support your peace of mind — by removing this virus from the air in your home. We put our Defender air purifier through independent testing to assure its effectiveness.  (The test utilized the CDC recommended MS2 Bacteriophage testing meeting the capture requirements set by the FDA Guidelines.)

Keep reading to understand more about how the SARS-CoV-2  virus works, the verified test results, and why investing in the right air purifier may bring the relief you’ve been looking for.

How SARS-CoV-2  Lingers in Your Air & How to Remove It With The Defender

Transmitted through respiratory droplets, SARS-CoV-2 spreads when someone infected with it (whether they know it or not) coughs, sneezes, talks, or even breathes. These infected droplets vary in size. The large ones settle out of the air quickly, but the small ones actually dry and can linger in the air for HOURS.1 Scary, as we all know.

Proper circulation and ventilation are one of the important steps to limit the spread of SARS-CoV-2. But what if your workplace doesn’t have windows, or you can't open them because of the season? And we want to get together like we used to! We’re happy to say that FilterQueen has a verifiably safe and easy solution.

We’ve worked hard to improve indoor air quality since 1928 — and when COVID hit, we wanted to make sure to give our customers verified results. (We know our filtration systems work. But we know how vital accurate, research-driven information is, perhaps now more than ever!) We put our Defender air purifier through rigorous independent testing to inspect its efficiency. And it delivers.

Independent testing shows FilterQueen’s Defender air purifier removes 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 particles from the air.2

We always had faith in our product, but it sure is nice to finally share these results with you. We’re bursting at the seams to tell you how efficient it works too, so let’s jump in!

Independent Testing Reveals Mind-Blowing Efficiency at Removing SARS-CoV-2 Particles

Alright, so it’s a pretty big deal: Verified results reveal our purifier eliminates SARS-CoV-2  particles from the air. That giant, important number of 99.9% is accomplished in just 90 minutes! The testing space was 1,000 cubic feet, which shows how fast the Defender circulates pure air back into your home.

Plus, after running the Defender for 24 hours, researchers saw a 95% reduction in live SARS-CoV-2  particles trapped in the filter. 

The Defender has “COVID Capture Technology,” as we call it, with our incomparable Medi-Cartridge Filter. When the invisible 0.125 micron SARS-CoV-2 particles get trapped in our filter, your air and space become that much safer.

What’s really incredible? Our Defender has been capturing 99.99% of particles even smaller than the SARS-CoV-2 virus for decades!  We developed this revolutionary filter and our unique Enviropure Charcoal Wrap to capture bacteria and viruses long before the COVID-19 pandemic. Unlike other companies popping up to make a quick buck — we’ve cared about quality air for generations.

Other Key Amenities to The Defender:

  • 3X better than the standard HEPA filter
  • Eliminates over 99.99% of Allergens, Mold, Dust & More
  • 360° Air Intake
  • Odor Capture
  • Quiet, 24-Hour Operation
  • FDA-Cleared Class II Medical Device

Even before the pandemic, hospitals and doctors saw these features as ample reasons to use the Defender. They know how indoor air quality impacts their staff and patients’ health and safety. Plus, a 2015 study concluded the number of fungal spores was reduced to zero within one hour of turning on the device.3

Doctors trust the Defender in high-traffic areas like waiting rooms. We all know what it’s like to go into a crowded space with potentially infectious people (*insert rising blood pressure and scared eyes*). Don’t you think you’d feel better if you saw an air purifier in that waiting room?

Beyond the medical realm, we’re passionate about making safe air accessible to everyone. We know that, without our customers, we can’t accomplish our mission of improving air quality. 

It’s time to remove extra worry when you’re in your own home — and start feeling safer with purified air. From healthcare workers, restaurant staff, stay-at-home moms, to everyone in between, we all benefit from cleaner air.
