What are the Types of Face Masks?

Cloth mask

Cloth mask functions to trap the fluid droplets that are released when coughs, sneezes and talks. Usually, it features different layers of woven fabric such as cotton that are washable and reusable, making them the primary choice for people. Plus, cloth masks with multiples layers are known to prevent the fluid droplets from getting into contact with others.

Surgical mask

A medical mask or commonly known as surgical is a form of a disposable mask that is used by medical professionals when working. The surgical mask ensures protection from fluid droplets and germs. Furthermore, it also helps to filter out any large particles. As this type of face is loose fitting, you can do a knot at the ear loops to ensure that is fits perfectly.

N95 mask

The N95 mask is more fitting compared to the surgical mask and it ensures overall protection from small as well as large particles. As the name suggests, it is known to protect the wearer by filtering out about 95% of particles in the air. However, this disposable mask does not function to filter any air that the wearer breathes out.
