Doctors and public health experts agree that breathing fine particulate matter (PM2.5) can be harmful to human health. The airborne particles—thirty times smaller than the width of human hair—can pass easily into the lungs and bloodstream, where they can increase a person’s risk of dying from heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and lower respiratory infections.

Human health effects of dust relate mainly to the size of dust particles. Dust may contain microscopic solids or liquid droplets that are small enough to get deep into the lungs and cause serious health problems. Large particles may irritate the nose, throat and eyes. The particle size is a major determinant of how serious the health effect will be, especially for lung diseases and the effects on the heart.


Small particles less than 2.5 micrometres in aerodynamic diameter (called PM2.5) pose the greatest problem because they can get deep into the lungs and some may get into the bloodstream. These particles can come from industry such as foundries, and diesel engines. Those that are smaller than 10 micrometres in aerodynamic diameter (called PM10) can also cause serious health effects in susceptible individuals if the concentration is high enough. The EPA monitors these particles in the air as part of their air quality monitoring service. Naturally occurring particles may also cause health issues. These include microorganisms, such as pollen, fungi and in certain circumstances bacteria and viruses (such as from wastewater or someone sneezing). Dust from soil can also irritate the respiratory tract.


You should always be mindful of the dust levels in your home and always clean regularly to ensure optimal air quality for your respiratory health. And the HYLA EST is the perfect partner to facilitate this! When you clean with the HYLA, the air with dust particles enters the HYLA water pan through the inlet tube, creating an upward stream of water – the HYLA Geyser. This effect ensures optimal conditions for filtration by creating a mixture of droplets and dust particles, while the NEW HYLA DEFENDER blades cut larger water droplets into microdroplets and disperse them at high speed. The HYLA EST is extremely capable of reducing and eliminating pollutants within the air in your home, increasing your indoor air quality while reducing need for dirty filters, harsh chemicals, and more.



The cleaning power of water is truly underestimated, but the HYLA takes full advantage of its capabilities to ensure your home feels as fresh inside as it can be outside. No filters necessary, as the water acts as its OWN filter, and the unique DEFENDER Separator Technology safely and naturally eliminates the dust and other harmful particles.
