The Best Air Purifier for Pet Owners

Why do You Need an Air Purifier for Pets?

As pet owners, we all love our furry or feathery roommates. Pets can greatly enhance our quality of life, while, at the same time, make our lives unbearable because of their pet hair and our allergies. As much as we love our pets, they pollute our homes and the air we breathe.  The best air purifiers for pets will help the home owner get rid of

  • Pet dander  (which is an allergen and the primary cause of allergic reactions and discomfort),
  • Pet hair that accumulates on your furniture, carpets and other soft surfaces, and
  • Odors that build up from wet dogs, cat boxes, bird cages, food dishes, etc.

If you want to get rid of any one of these three types of pollutants, you need an air purifier for your pet.  I've been able to overcome my cat hair allergy with the use of an air hair filter for cats. But you may have a different issue altogether that deals more with odors or air quality.  There are many different air purifier models available, and choosing the right unit can be a challenge.

In this article, I will be taking an in-depth look at the best air purifiers for pet owners available. The review will look at the three types of air purifiers that are most useful in homes and apartments, depending on your needs. The air purifiers that are most useful to your particular needs are:

  • True HEPA filters that are certified to remove all pet hair (and close to 100% of pet dander particles as small as 0.3 microns)
  • HEPA-type filters that specialize in removing pet hair, and
  • Add-on activated carbon filters that absorb pet smells.

Identifying your particular needs is key to the process of delivering the best air quality to your family and your pets. So let’s take a look at the best air purifiers for pet pollution problems and allergies and get you breathing healthy air again.
