Animal dander is produced by any warm-blooded animal. It’s nature’s way of exfoliating dead skin and making way for fresh new skin. Dander can be found in places were animals have been away from for years, and is easily transferred from one space to another by attaching to clothing and other personal articles. If you’re having trouble controlling animal dander here are three reasons that a HEPA air purifier can help.
Constant Elimination to Keep Up with Constant Production–If you have an animal as part of the family, dander is constantly flaking off and going airborne when the heat or air conditioning comes on, when your toddler jumps on the floor or on pet’s favorite cushion, when you pet shakes, or jumps to greet you at the door. Since the production of dander is constant, an air purifier that is constant is one of the most effective and efficient ways to keep the dander count to a minimum. To be able to run safely 24 hours each day make sure the technical specifications describe a permanent split capacitor motor rated for continuous high revolutions per minute RPM) to insure long life duty.
Environmentally Safe–Filtering your air with a cleaner whose only by-product is fresh, clean, dander-free air is good for the environment, your family, and your pets. There are many filtration technologies on the market today but if you look at the medical community and the technology used in hospitals, it is high efficiency particle arresting or HEPA technology. This means that for every 10,000 airborne pollutants lingering in your air, 99,997 of them will be removed with 97% efficiency. This type of filtration is also available for home and office use and will remove sub-micron pollutants as small as .3 microns safely and effectively; animal dander ranges in size from .5 to 10 microns and is an excellent candidate for removal using this process.
Cost Effective because it’s Energy Efficient–Successful elimination of dander can only be effective if it is used constantly, and so finding a solution that fits within your budget is sure to be high on your list of priorities. The ability to eliminate the dander while using 115 watt power consumption at its highest setting makes clean air affordable. And because it is cost effective you are taking a proactive step towards reducing a well-known asthma and allergy trigger, and a pollutant that bacteria and viruses use to spread through the air.
