Odors in our homes are often inevitable. Whether the smells are from cooking, housemates, kids or pets—we usually don’t want them lingering in our space. Depending on where you live and the time of year, you might be able to open your windows or turn on a fan to help increase air circulation and help push smells out, but for those who are looking for a faster solution that can work no matter the weather, you may want to consider an air purifier that contains activated carbon.
Activated carbon helps trap and remove odors from the air that can otherwise evade a true HEPA filter, so it’s important to make sure you’re purchasing an air purifier with an activated carbon filter not just a HEPA filter. However, as the carbon absorbs odors and other particles, it can become saturated and less effective, so activated carbon filters do need to be replaced about every 6-12 months.
Fight back against the lingering odor of last night’s fish fry and grab an air purifier with activated carbon today.
