Healthy Business Tips: Balefire Goods Ltd. in Arvada, Colorado
Crafting a business with cleaner air
Balefire Goods Ltd. in Arvada, Colorado, is an artisan gallery where customers can find unique, custom-made pieces of jewelry, as well as a collection of fine artwork and gifts. The business is a staple in the Arvada community and was recently featured in 303 Magazine. Known for metalsmithing, Balefire features an in-house jewelry studio, where owner Jamie Hollier and her team craft their jewelry.
With customers coming from far and wide to shop, Hollier strives to ensure that the gallery stays safe and comfortable for them. “As a business that is open to the public, we work to ensure that we are always providing as clean and healthy of an environment for our staff and customers as we can,” Hollier says.
Treasuring the clientele
In the age of COVID-19, Balefire Goods has taken precautions to help things run smoothly. In addition to sanitizing jewelry that customers try on and continuously cleaning after transactions, the team also uses air purifiers to keep the air free of contaminants.
“We have two Airmega units in our gallery that we run continuously while we are open to ensure that the air is always fresh and clean,” Hollier says. This is especially helpful because of the studio, where airborne particles can be prominent. Metalsmithing techniques, such as using sulfur to blacken sterling silver, can permeate the air with scents and fumes.
Having a set of powerful air purifiers, Hollier says, provides peace of mind. “Knowing that the Airmega units are quietly working to clean our air and provide us with a safer environment has been a huge relief during a time of stress and concern for all small business owners, employees and customers.”
The Airmega difference
Hollier’s selection of Airmega came after careful consideration. “Airmega has units that are easy to use, quiet to operate and attractive in their design,” she says.
She’s not alone. This unique combination of convenience, noise level and sleek design have attracted many small business owners to do the same, adding units into their workshops or offices. Coway Airmega offers a wide variety of state-of-the-art Green True HEPA™ air purifiers that can help keep professional space filled with pure air by filtering out unwanted contaminants.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.

5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
