TPM Toxic Particle Matter (Toxic Dust) - the term for a mixture of solid particles and liquid droplets found in the air. Some particles, such as dust, dirt, soot, or smoke, are large or dark enough to be seen with the naked eye. Others are so small they can only be detected using an electron microscope. [epa.gov]

Toxic particle matter contains microscopic solids or liquid droplets that are so small that they can be inhaled and cause serious health problems. Some particles less than 10 micrometers in diameter can get deep into your lungs and some may even get into your bloodstream. Of these, particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, also known as fine particles or PM2.5, pose the greatest risk to health. [epa.gov]

Exposure to such toxic particles can affect both your lungs and your heart. Numerous scientific studies have linked particle pollution exposure to a variety of problems, including:

  • premature death in people with heart or lung disease
  • nonfatal heart attacks
  • irregular heartbeat
  • aggravated asthma
  • decreased lung function
  • increased respiratory symptoms, such as irritation of the airways, coughing or difficulty breathing.

People with heart or lung diseases, children, and older adults are the most likely to be affected by toxic particle pollution exposure. These particles come in many sizes and shapes and can be made up of hundreds of different chemicals. Some are emitted directly from a source, such as construction sites, unpaved roads, fields, smokestacks or fires. Most particles form in the atmosphere as a result of complex reactions of chemicals such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, which are pollutants emitted from power plants, industries and automobiles.

What can you do to protect your health and the health of your loved ones from the harmful effects of Toxic Dust Particle Pollution?

Alen® has created multi-room smart air purification bundle solutions to protect you and your family.

Toxic particle matter can get blown into the air and travel hundreds of miles from their originating locations in dust clouds from dry river and lake beds. High levels of Arsenic, DDT, Selenium, Copper, and Lead are of primary concern as some of the arsenic levels in dry bed locations such as Salt Lake City and the Salton Sea are reportedly far above safe EPA guidelines.
