Choosing the Right Air Purifier if You Have Pets


Anyone with fluffy or fuzzy pets such as dogs or cats knows the daily struggle of dealing with hair fluff all over the house. And if that’s not enough, it’s even harder if a family member is allergic to animals. But how can one person hate pets when they bring so much joy and happiness to one’s home? Yes, their fur makes some people sneeze non-stop for days on end. But come to think of it, there’s no denying that pets make great lifetime companions. Their love and friendship are heart-warming.

Living with pets

As much as people love and adore their pets, the pesky hair that they shed collects dust that can be quite annoying. Apart from the fact that dust and pollen cause lots of different allergies, they are not that easy to remove. Plus, most animals stink, especially when they don’t get bathed regularly.

Luckily, there are tools and devices available for purchase in both physical and online stores everywhere that can solve these problems. But what method works in both removing and getting rid of pet dander and allergens that come with it? What tool can eliminate the bad odor that can only come from our furry pets? The answer to all this is an air purifier for pet hair.

What exactly does an air purifier do?

When dust, mold, and pet dander combine, it can be a lot of mess, the kind of mess that’s tough to clean. Not only is it disgusting to look at, but it also affects the whole atmosphere and the air people breathe in.

This is because the collected dust and dirt trigger allergic reactions not only to humans but the pets as well. What an air purifier does is it cleans the air around the house by filtering the different kinds of dust, mold, pollen, as well as animal dander that get suspended in the air or cling on to other surfaces or crevices within one’s home.

An air purifier for pet hair not only works as an air filtration system, but it also has a deodorizing mechanism that can get rid of the awful smell from animal hair or just the general stench resulting from bacteria build-up. Who doesn’t want to breathe in fresh and pleasant-smelling air? It’s always lovely to stay in a place that looks and smells clean.

Choosing the right product

There are at least a hundred variants of air purifiers, but how does one know what to choose? First, consider ones that have a higher clean air delivery rate. Why is this so important? This rate ensures that the air being breathed in and out is clean as soon as the purifier is enabled – it depends on the speed at which the purifier’s fan runs to filter out dirt and allergens. Another factor to consider when purchasing an air purifier is if it uses a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter. HEPA is a type of air filter made of fine mesh that traps and filters out smaller but more harmful particles such as dust, dust mites or pollens.

One more thing that a customer must remember when purchasing the product is to know how the air filtration process works. There is one standard method that’s often used in filtration called ionization, in which the purifier emits negative ions where the dirt particles and allergens stick to and get trapped.

Although this is very effective in cleaning the air, one must be cautious when using devices that have the ionization method. It can create an indoor pollutant known as ozone that can be harmful to both humans and animals and may cause lung problems.

Breathing in clean air is a must for everyone since oxygen is the one thing that keeps humans alive. We can only achieve this by adequately choosing the tools we use daily. What is a better way to do this other than filtering the air? Now that signals a sigh of relief.
