Pet hair is a fact of life if you share your home with a furry pet. If you’re not careful, you can spend most of your time trying to stay ahead of it. Here are 5 benefits that an air purifier can offer that other solutions cannot.
Requires Minimal Effort—If you are constantly dusting, mopping, vacuuming, using a roller, or just picking up hair, scrubbing the air before it falls to surfaces will make a huge difference in how much and how often you will need to clean.
Removing large amounts of hair before it falls makes it an effective solution with a minimum of effort. Keep in mind that nothing will get rid of all the hair unless you get rid of your pet. And that probably isn’t an option you want to discuss, and that’s a good thing. This falls under the heading working smarter, not harder.
Is A Continuous Solution—-With other cleaning methods, once you stop, the accumulation of hair begins again. And it lays around on surfaces until you clean again or until it is blown to some other place by air currents cause by normal movement through your home.
Filtering the air with a cleaner that is designed to run 24 hours every day gives you a solution that can literally keep up with the problem. So whether you are home or not, cleaning or not, airborne hair is being taken out of your air.
Removes Other Particulates And Gaseous Pollutants—The filters that the cleaner contains are all important. It is essential that if have both a HEPA and a carbon based filter.
The HEPA or high efficiency particle arresting filter is designed to remove particles (such as pet hair and dander) down to those that are as small as.3 microns in size. The added advantage to this type of filter is that it will also remove normal household dust, dust mites, mold and mildew spores, and any bacteria and viruses that are attached to these particles.
The carbon based filter is great to have because of its exceptional ability to remove gases, odor, and chemicals from the air. Every pet generates some smell, and being able to take out the odor allows you to enjoy more of the advantages of owning a pet rather than the tell-tale smell.
It’s a Green Clean—The only by-product of any air purifier should be fresh air. This is for the health and safety of both pets and owners. Being able to remove airborne pollutants with minimal impact on the environment is a safer, healthier way to solve the problem.
It Costs Less—Operating a portable air purifier should only cost about as much to operate as a 60 watt light bulb. This is far more cost effective than other methods, particularly since it is able to work continuously.
Pets are worth their weight in gold, pet hair is not. By using the right cleaner you can have your pet and get rid of the hair problem too.
