Many thanks Tom!

Just to clarify, you're running the air mover in a doorway to exhaust the air out of the room, with filtered air coming in the room.

So for my scenario, it would be best for me to put a box fan in a window with a filter taped to it, blowing in.  Then foam insulation covering a doorway with a hole cut out down bottom for the air movers, with a filter on the inlet side.

Window or door open for air in, with a filter. Don't need a fan.

Air mover on the floor with a filter over the inlet. Get the stuff you're spraying as close as you can to the air mover.
