What's more? The good folks at 3M have also come up with an AC filter which we can all install in our air conditioners. The filters also operate on fan mode, thereby purifying the air in our homes.
Rest assured, with 3M's respirators and AC filters, the air we breathe will be free from all the dust pollutants. So if you're concerned about the health of your loved ones, given the ever-increasing pollution, you know what to do!
