Those masks reduces the exposure to dust, particles and airborne contaminants significantly enough to preserve your health and respiratory ways.
n95 masks can be used in cases of viruses outbreak if no direct close contact is made with infected patients. For more intensive exposure, it is recommended to go for n99 or n100 masks which are guaranteed to filter 99% up to 100% of airborne contaminants.
