When the AQI (Air Quality Index) in your area shows extremely high levels of PM2.5 or your PurpleAir sensor shows a health alert, it means that pollution is hazardous at these levels. Consider these steps to reduce your exposure.
PM - which stands for particulate matter or particle pollution - is an intricate mixture of liquid droplets made up of acids (like nitrates and sulfates), ammonium, water, black carbon, organic chemicals, metals, soil material, and air-borne particles.
