Airetrex targets

Virus

SIZE

5–300 nm

DESCRIPTION

Viruses are little more than strands of DNA or RNA encased within a protein shell. Their only functions are to infect living cells, produce more viruses and destroy their host cell in the process.

COMMON VARIETIES

Influenza
Norovirus
Rhinovirus
RSVM

COMMONLY FOUND

Everywhere

Bacteria

SIZE

550–1000 nm

DESCRIPTION

Bacteria are simple, single-celled organisms that come in various shapes and sizes. Though many bacteria are beneficial to humans, some cause considerable harm as they reproduce and overwhelm bodily defenses.

COMMON VARIETIES

Salmonella
Listeria
E. coli
Clostridium botulinum

COMMONLY FOUND

Everywhere

Pollen

SIZE

1000–1200 nm

DESCRIPTION

Pollen is reproductive plant material that has been released into the air. It often triggers the same bodily defenses as a virus or bacteria, which cause irritation of the skin, eyes or nose.

COMMON VARIETIES

Grass pollen
Tree pollen
Weed pollen

COMMONLY FOUND

In exterior spaces

Mold

SIZE

300–4000 nm

DESCRIPTION

Mold is a fungus that thrives in moist, nutrient-rich environments. All air contains a small amount of mold spores, but breathing them in higher quantities can trigger allergies and respiratory issues.

COMMON VARIETIES

Acremonium
Aspergillus
Cladosporium
S. chartarum

COMMONLY FOUND

On foods & walls

Mildew

SIZE

300–4000 nm

DESCRIPTION

Mildew is a fungus that grows on flat surfaces and can be dislodged extremely easily into the air. As with mold, breathing a large amount of mildew spores can trigger allergies and respiratory issues.

COMMON VARIETIES

Powdery mildew
Downy mildew

COMMONLY FOUND

On plants & damp surfaces

Odor

SIZE

< 10 nm

DESCRIPTION

Odors are chemical compounds that we perceive through smell. Some odors are just a nuisance, but our brains have adapted to react strongly to certain odors—often produced by things that are harmful to ingest.

COMMON VARIETIES

Pet odors
Body odors
Cooking smells
Rot & decay

COMMONLY FOUND
