Dirt from house dust and pollen is not only unsightly, but also a breeding ground for bacteria and can therefore be a health hazard. Therefore, the purchase of an air purifier makes sense not only for allergy sufferers. You can read here about how the devices work, as well as what differences and features there are.
Dust is in every home, but when it gets out of hand, health issues such as breathing problems can occur. Allergy sufferers in particular are sensitive to the allergens present in house dust. Air purifiers are able to filter dirt particles from the room air. Possible pollutants include:
The main goal of the air purifier is to improve indoor air quality. Asthmatics and allergy sufferers in particular benefit from this. You can use the device to relieve your symptoms. An air filter for the apartment is also useful in areas with very high air pollution.
Along with a humidifier, room air purifiers are important wellness and health products. How they work is easy to explain: The devices consist of a filter system. The pre-filter cleans the room air of coarse particles, such as fluff. Another fibre filter, which is usually a highly efficient HEPA filter, removes fine dust, pollen and small particles. The third element usually consists of an activated carbon filter. This absorbs odours, for example.
HEPA cleaners work with a highly efficient particle filter that very effectively removes harmful, even tiny, particles and odours. HEPA filters guide the room air through a fine mesh that catches the harmful particles. They are optimal air purifiers against dust. There are also HEPA filters capable of filtering aerosols and viruses.
Ionisers clean the air by spreading ions and enriching suspended matter. Harmful particles that grow and sink to the ground are attracted to the device. The ozone that is produced during operation has an antibacterial effect and kills many viruses. Rooms with cigarette smoke and children's rooms should not be cleaned with an ioniser.
Activated carbon cleaners, often combined with a HEPA filter, capture particles, even the smallest ones that ordinary filters miss. They eliminate unpleasant odours, break down harmful gases and are ideal for allergy sufferers.
Air washers use water to clean the room air and bind dust.
The devices remove even the smallest particles from the air. This guarantees hygienic air quality. The available range offers the right model for everyone. A combination of the above-mentioned devices, working methods and advantages is ideal. This includes, for example, the 3-in-1 cleaner with an ioniser, fan and UV steriliser or the Vita Pure 5-in-1 device. Also look out for special features such as:
Fine dust pollution is a problem for all of us, not just for allergy sufferers and asthmatics. Therefore, it makes sense for everyone to buy an air purifier that filters out particles from the air.
The devices usually combine different types of filters, such as pre-, activated carbon and HEPA filters. The latter in particular are highly effective and do not let even the smallest particles through.
The efficiency with which the device removes dust and other particles depends on the volume of the room. For larger rooms, there are models with more powerful filters and fans. Before you buy, check the capacity and flow rate.
