Air Purifiers and Maintaining a Pleasant Odor-Free Home
Unpleasant odors in the home can be the line that divides enjoying coming home at the end of a long day and wishing that you could move in order to avoid having to endure one more second in that smelly home of yours. Between the pets we love, the food we cook, and the cleaning agents we use, the home can begin to develop of myriad of not-so-pleasant characteristics of its own, namely odoriferous ones. So how does one go about successfully solving this smelly problem?
Air fresheners only go so far and often only succeed in mixing with the unpleasant odors to form a new one such as cinnamon scented wet dog for example. Even if they do succeed in masking these disagreeable aromas, they do not address the root of the problem and the sources of the odors. In addition to creating an unpleasant environment, the odors of the home are also often accompanied by airborne health hazards and allergens such as pet dander, smoke particles, mold spores, and bacteria. Although odors might be unpleasant to cope with, the air you breathe is more than just its scent.
A main cause of concern and necessary precaution lies in the repercussions that such odor-causing particles have on your health and well-being as well as that of your family. HEPA air purifiers allow for us to continue our necessary and unavoidable day to day activities such as cooking and cleaning without having to endure the often stinky consequences. Unlike air fresheners, HEPA air purifiers provide a means to address the actual problem, the odor inducing agents as well as other particles, both annoying and hazardous, which are commonly found in the air.
Choosing from among the many air purifiers can be a daunting task particularly when you are unsure as to what it is you are looking for. It is important to keep in mind that the best HEPA air purifiers will not only remove particles such as dander and mold from the air but will also act as an air freshener would, leaving your home not only cleaner but smelling fresher as well. When it comes to air purifiers, HEPA filters and/or activated carbon filters are the means by which this goal is successfully achieved. HEPA filters, which are also found in many vacuum cleaners and used in airplanes to prevent the spread of pathogens, are highly efficient filters which have been found to remove approximately 99.97% of airborne particles, some of which are tiny, as little as 0.3 microns. Activated carbon filters are another form of filter which are often found in top quality air purifiers. These filters work by using a process called adsorption in which charcoal is used to bind vapors and other gases which are responsible for odors and poor indoor air quality. Through this process, these filters are not only able to remove harmful vapors from the air but also to remove the stench that accompanies them.
