Best Air Purifier for Pet Odors

Best Air Purifier for Pet Odors – Although this is a small price to pay for the love and companionship of having a pet in the family, I’m sure we would all love to eradicate these unpleasant odors. Especially when you consider we often become nose blind to the smells in our home, so it may be even worse than you think!

With the pet industry booming in recent years, there are many innovations you can buy to help care for your pet. But when it comes to unwanted odors, one of the most effective solutions is to invest in a quality air purifier.

In order to tackle odors, or any volatile organic compound (VOC air purifiers), you will need a purifier with an activated carbon filter. This filter, made up of a sponge-like bed of charcoal, works by absorbing VOCs from the air as they pass through the purifier.

As well as odors, we know pet dander and hair can be a nuisance when cleaning your home and trigger allergies amongst many other unpleasant side effects. An air purifier can certainly help with this issue too. As each purifier on our list also utilizes HEPA filters, they can easily capture and remove these particles and odors from the air.
