but an important tool to protect your family so you can breathe easier during these troubling times. - [announcer] this is a special health report on the safety of air quality in your home. as you're watching tv right now, take a deep breath. how clean is the air you just breathed? the air in your home may look clean to the naked eye, but look closer. the air in your home likely contains viruses, pollen, mold, dust, bacteria, pet dander, germs and chemicals. introducing the nuwave nuwave oxypure smart air purifier. the most advanced air purifier on the market today. oxypure delivers healthier, safer and cleaner air for you and your family. oxypure has been proven to capture airborne bacteria and viruses tested as small as 0.09 microns. - pandenic's very scary right now and clean air is important to me because i have a two year old and i do have one on the way. oxypure makes sure that our air in our house is clean and that is a huge relief to me,
knowing that my daughter is breathing in clean air. - i think having clean air in our home has always been a priority to us. the oxypure really took the cleaning of the air to a completely differently level. - [announcer] oxypure is no ordinary air purifier. it features an unprecedented five-stage filter system to capture more harmful particles than ever before. that will deliver huge relief for those who suffer from seasonal allergies and asthma. oxypure also removes pet dander and pet odors. coming up on today's show, we're talking to burt ward, robin, the boy wonder, batman's sidekick from the famed "batman" tv series and founder of gentle giants dog and puppy food. see how he uses oxypure to keep his home and rescue healthier and to clean hair and dust out of the air. now, here's your host, deborah norville. - hello and welcome. when's the last time you wondered about the air quality in your home. perhaps since the days of the pandemic, ally have wondered if there were a way to keep your home healthier and safer.
today, we're going to learn about the nuwave oxypure air purifier. when there's a spill on the counter, it's easy to see what to clean, but you can't see viruses or microorganisms or pollutants in the air. and according to the environmental protection agency, they're there. in an agency report on air quality, the epa advised that indoor air, the air inside your home could have up to five times more pollutants than what's outside, five times. the world health organization advises that particulate matter in the air can penetrate deep into the lungs, entering the body affecting the cardiovascular and other systems. so air may look clean, but this really can be a situation where what you can't see can hurt you. in addition to hosting potentially dangerous viruses like coronavirus and influenza, the epa says poor household air can be a cause of eye, nose, or throat irritations or headaches and dizziness,
all big problems for those with allergies,. the people at nuwave say they've found a solution, the oxypure air purifier. they say it's proven to remove pathogens in the air. we'll hear from an expert about those claims in just a moment, but first, hear from these people currently using oxypure. - the best thing about this oxypure purifier is knowing that it works. when my husband comes in after barbecuing steaks or hamburgers and hotdogs, sets them on the counter and this unit goes off, we know it's purifying the air. that really gives us peace of mind. - joining me now is oxypure expert beau rials to explain how the nuwave oxypure works. bau, good to have you here. - deborah, it's great to be here. - first question air purifiers are pretty basic, right? dirty air goes in, clean air comes out. - actually not at all. in fact, many air purifiers have a real problem, deborah. you see, they're designed to catch larger particles like tobacco, smoke, dust and pollen, which are much bigger than pathogens.
so things that are very small, like viruses and germs can often pass right through those filters and go right back into the air that you and i breathe. well, the oxypure on the other hand was designed to not only be highly effective against tobacco, smoke, dust and pollen, but also to target and actually remove viruses and germs as well. - if viruses and germs can pass through a filter, it sort of defeats the purpose of having an air purifier. - exactly right. and that's why i'm so excited about the nuwave oxypure smart air purifier from nuwave. now, everyone knows nuwave as a leader in innovation. and now, we have developed an air purifier that's simply light years ahead of competitors. for example, oxypure has not one filter, not two, not three. it has a five-stage filter system. - and each of those five does something different, i assume. - absolutely. for example, one of those stages is the bioguard filter. now get this deborah. it uses an 8,000 volt electrostatic charge
plus 99.99% of bacteria like staph and mold like a. niger. - does it remove coronavirus? - it absolutely does. ti done by the university of minnesota particle calibration laboratory, it was proven that oxypure eliminated 98.24% of porcine respiratory corona virus from the air. watch this. - my name is chris hogan. i'm a professor of mechanical engineering at the university of minnesota. one of the main research thrusts of my lab group has recently become the testing of control technology to remove pollutant particles specifically, including infectious particles with viable viruses in them, from the air that we breathe. and we were able to do a test where we aerosolized high concentration solution of porcine corona virus
into very small droplets. when we did that particular set of tests on the oxypure, we got an overall removal efficiency of 98%. it's because it uses multiple control technologies in it. first, the air flow passes through an electrostatic precipitator. this is the device which is designed to first ionize particles, so that they'll move in an electric field. and then there is a high efficiency particulate air filter integrated with an activated carbon filter. for particle removal, the more important part is the high efficiency particulate air filter which to have that rating, must be able to remove 99.97% of particles at 300 nanometers. those two technologies together will be extremely efficient in combination and removing particles. - well, it removes the corona virus, that is a game changer. - plus relief to allergy sufferers, less irritation in your eyes and then your nose. you may also feel less tired and more energized. - all right, well, let's hear from some more people who are already using the oxypure.
- in march, i came down with covid-19. my husband was in the high risk category. it was really important to us and more importantly, a safe environment. the oxypure actually helped me to do that. - well, at first i was afraid to come to work and we don't all know what we're all doing every day and who we're coming into contact with. but once tommy told me about oxypure, i felt reassured. - when we come back, we'll talk with burt ward. he played robin on the old "batman" tv series and he says, the oxypure is a must for pet owners. but first, this. - [announcer] take a deep breath. the air you just breathed could contain viruses, pollen, mold, dust, bacteria, pet dander, germs, and all kinds of chemicals. according to the environmental protection agency the average american spends about 90% of their life indoors.
and the epa says the air in your home can have as much as five times more pollutants than outdoors. that's a big problem for everyone because we're now spending even more time shuttered at home with more serious airborne dangers than ever. and if you have allergies or respiratory illness, those pollutants can make your symptoms worse. introducing the nuwave oxypure smart air purifier, the most advanced home air purifier ever created. oxypure delivers healthier, cleaner, and purified air for you and your family. most other air cleaners are designed to catch large particles, but things that are tiny like dangerous viruses can often pass through filters back into the air you breathe, but oxypure's bioguard filter is designed to capture from the air even the tiniest microscopic airborne particles, as small as 0.09 microns, even viruses. that's three times smaller than standard air purifiers. in fact, in a recent independent third party test to determine the effectiveness of oxypure in removing porcine respiratory corona virus
conducted by the university of minnesota, it was proven that oxypure eliminated 98.24% of porcine respiratory corona virus from the air on the first pass, at the lowest setting and is calculated to capture 99.999% of porcine respiratory corona virus in a 1200 square feet room within six hours. that's right. it eliminates virtually all the airborne corona virus. plus oxypure removes over 99% of the airborne h3n2 into flu virus and bacteria like staph and black mold. oxypure features a five-stage filter system, making it the most advanced air purifier available. a stainless steel pre-filter collects large particles. the bioguard filter captures minute dust particles and eliminates tiny organisms like viruses and bacteria from the air you breathe. the ozone emission removal filter removes dangerous ozone to less than 0.001 parts per million. the two-stage hepa and carbon filter collects pollen, allergens, pet dander, vocs, odors, and smoke.
look at how quickly oxypure removes thick smoke. it's a must for anyone near wildfires, worried about smoke in the air. the bioguard filter only needs cleaning every three to six months. just rinse it with any detergent. you can use it over and over. in fact, we guarantee the bioguard filter will work for up to 20 years, saving you money for years to come. the nuwave of oxypure has 360 degree air intake. air comes in to be cleaned from all sides. it's effective for large spaces up to 1200 square feet with two air changes per hour. oxype ma purier. and autolladjus the fand clor odo in yoir. that includes automatica or pet dinir, making oxypure a must have for pet owners to keep their air clean. select the turbo mode to remove kitchen odors. it even removes 100% of dust particles in the air before they land, so you'll clean less often.
