points for enjoying the pun. now here are the most searched Q&As.
due to the newness and volatility of this disease, no mask in the world can actually guarantee 100% protection against the novel coronavirus. in fact, you should watch out for any brand or business which does make such claims, it is severely misleading and there are a lot of them!
in saying that, our air filtration system in our freedom filters alone have been lab-tested to block 99.7% of harmful airborne viruses in the same particle size as COVID19. add the fact that the mask itself is made using SILVADUR™ technology which kills bacteria upon impact, we'd say you're in good care.
here is some great info from the CDC on the topic.
most of the masks you're seeing on the web are "face coverings", which, if the name didn't give away, just cover your face. they're OK in the sense that they protect others from you and are better than no mask at all but if someone symptomatic sneezed on you, you could be in a pickle.
the miix freedom filters you slide into your miix mask's built-in filter pocket give you 2-way protection, filtering air and blocking incoming particles by up to 99.7%. the built-in nose seal prevents air from leaking in or out as well, and the mask itself is made with silver ions to kill bacteria upon impact.
so in a nutshell, quite different.
it really depends on what environment you are in and how protected you want to feel. if you're not around lots of people and aren't in an area that has contracted the virus, you might feel safe with just the mask.
however, if you're in a dense urban location, seeing a lot of people, commuting, living in apartment blocks, are in an environment that has or had cases and so forth; then it's probably in your best interest to invest in something that protects you to the max at less than the cost of your Netflix subscription.
yeah that happened to us too, and was a part of why we started this.
once you order, it typically takes 2-5 business days to arrive. it shouldn't take longer than a week to get to you in most major cities around the world. if it does, let us know.
yay, can't wait to see how it looks on you! here are some quick steps:
1 - wash and sanitize your hands
2 - slide 1 x filter into your built-in pocket at the back of the mask
3 - slide your head between the two bands like fitting your head through a t-shirt
4 - allow it to rest on the neck
5 - slide back up and secure mask around your nose & mouth
6 - adjust the top band so it sits nicely around the top of your head
7 - give you nose a hug to mould the seal
8 - breathe easy, you're protected.
