What's Disposable Mask?
- A disposable respirator fits over the nose and mouth.
- It removes very small particles from the air you breathe.
- These particles include germs (like viruses, bacteria, andmold) and other kinds of dust.
- A disposable respiratordoes not have replacement parts.
- It is meant to be thrownaway after use.
Although some people confuse these two terms and call disposable respirators “dust masks,” a disposable mask is different than a dust mask. A disposable mask has been tested by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to make sure it can remove very small particles. A disposable mask has the name “NIOSH” and a label like “N95” on it. Dust masks have not been tested by NIOSH and may not remove very small particles.
Is a disposable mask the same as a surgical mask?
A disposable mask is different than a surgical mask. Surgical masks are not meant to protect the person wearing the mask from particles in the air. They are meant to protect other people (like a patient in an operating room) from germs that the person wearing the mask has. Surgical masks have not been tested by NIOSH and may not remove very small particles.
Is a disposable mask the same asa gas mask?
A disposable mask is different than a gas mask. A disposable mask does not remove gases, chemicals, or vapors from the air you breathe. A disposable mask only removes particles. Some non-disposable respirators can protect against gases, chemicals, and vapors. If you need a respirator for gases, chemicals, or vapors, contact a respirator expert or manufacturer.
When should I wear a disposable mask?
A disposable respirator should be worn:
- when in a moldy building, such as after a flood
- when visiting or caring for someone in the hospital with tuberculosis
- if recommended during an outbreak of influenza (“flu”) or other infection
- if recommended by your doctor
- if required in your workplace
- Some people may choose to wear a disposable mask
- when doing dusty work in the yard or home.
Will a disposable mask remove all particles in the air?
A new disposable mask that is worn correctly removes most (90% or more) particles in the air. Some particles (10% or less) will still be in the air you breathe. If a disposable
mask is not worn correctly or is damaged, it will not work as well. For very hazardous particles, even a disposable respirator that is worn correctly may not provide enough protection. If you have questions about whether a disposable
mask will provide enough protection, contact a respirator expert or manufacturer.
