Respirator Face Masks
Chemical & Dust Respirators
When applying professional pesticides in and around your home by yourself, you need to take certain precautions. As with any chemical, protecting yourself and your family is a top priority and airborne pesticides pose a large threat. This is why you will need respiratory protection in the form of a chemical respiratory mask, full-face respirator, and other protective masks.
See our entire selection of professional pest control equipment for additional supplies and tips to keep you safe.
The Necessity of Respirators
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is a very important part of any pesticide applications, but choosing the right equipment is difficult because of the vast number of products available. You might think you can get away without respirator or mask, but exposure to certain chemicals in airborne pesticides can damage or destroy parts of the respiratory system. The lining in the respiratory system easily absorbs the dusts and vapors and the chemicals quickly move through the body. Besides the serious health risks, some products may require you to use a specific grade respirator by law.
Choosing Your Respirator
Not all respirators are created equal. Each style of mask serves a specific purpose and might now give you the right protection you need. The product you are using will explain the kind of mask needed for application. Below is a list of common types of respirator masks with the proper usage and grade of protection.
The key to choosing proper PPE is always to completely understand the product’s warnings, instructions, and precautions. The labels will always give you the guidance for your protection.
