Air Purifiers And How They Eliminate Allergens, Smoke And Odors

Different filters eliminate different things from the air. Screen filters such as HEPA filters work against particles such as allergens and mold spores. Porous, absorptive filters work against chemicals such as foul odors. Tobacco smoke is a mixture of both small particles and gases, so a combination of the two filters would work best in dealing with smoke. Ionizers also work well against particles such as allergens.

For things such as bacteria and viruses, we recommend using a high quality filter such as a HEPA filter. Combined with a UV light, these HEPA filters do a great job in eliminating bacteria and viruses.
