Cat Air Purifiers
How a Pet Air Purifier Can Benefit Your Home
It’s no secret that many enjoy the companionship provided by felines. But for pet parents who have seasonal allergies or children, dealing with their excess fur and dander could impact the quality of air in your home. In addition to brushing your cat and vacuuming regularly, you may want to consider a pet air purifier for optimal breathing conditions. Keep reading to learn more about the features and benefits of these air cleaning systems.
How do pet air purifiers help with hair and odors?
When your cat cleans themselves or sheds, their excess fur is left floating in the air. Pet hair air purifiers work by attracting and trapping cat fur before it ends up on your furniture, clothes, or other areas of your home. For lingering smells, look for a purifier with an Activated Carbon Filter. These systems destroy pet smells at the molecular level leaving you with clean and fresh air.
The best air purifiers for pets and your home
When it comes to choosing an air cleaning system, you have a couple of options. Smart ionic purifiers provide real-time air quality alerts and some even come with high definition video, show 360-degree views, have night vision, two-way speakers, and sound and motion alerts.
If you have family members with severe allergies or asthma, pet air purifiers with HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are a good option. These systems can trap up to 99% of airborne particles that are 0.3 microns in size. Available in two types—a degradable paper filter to be replaced or a permanent mesh filter you can wash—you’ll find an option that meets your needs.
Pet air purifier features
Most pet parents have no idea they’re allergic to cats until it’s too late. Feline hair or fur, dander, saliva, or urine are the main culprits that can trigger allergies and aggravate asthma. Pet air purifiers can help maintain these conditions by clearing the air of dirt, odors, and allergy-causing agents. Here are a few other features that can improve the environment in your home:
- Filters that capture dust, pollen, pet dander, and mold spores
- Detection of organic chemicals that do not have a color, smell, or taste such as carbon monoxide, methane, or alcohol
- Humidity, temperature, and sound alerts sent to your phone
- Comparison of air quality in different locations to provide health improvement tips
