Risks of Exceeding the Shelf Life of the KN95

KN95 masks have a lifespan of between 8 and 12 hours. Furthermore, it is very important not to reuse masks that are single-use, given that their effectiveness will be seriously impaired and can, in some senses, be counterproductive to our health, apart from the risks generated by believing that one is protected, when in reality it is not...

Excessively extending the recommended hours of use for a mask is something that entails certain dangers, apart from that false belief of being protected. The filters, which are essential for the purifying and barrier action of the mask, become clogged with use, and it is after these hours that they no longer function correctly and can allow potentially infectious and contagious particles to enter and exit.

And this is not the only risk! In fact, improper use of masks can lead to a wide variety of pathologies and infections. The droplets of saliva that we expel when speaking accumulate on the inside of the mask, wetting the fabric and favoring, over time, the growth of fungi and colonies of bacteria, which can cause respiratory or body problems. For example, it is common, as a result of improper use of masks, the appearance of mouth ulcers, the appearance of small wounds in the corners of the lips and the development of small pimples and acne.

Luckily, avoiding all this is simple: use your mask only for the recommended hours and do not reuse single-use ones. For this, there are already reusable masks, which we can wash comfortably and use again a specific number of times.
