Clean air isn't just important, it's essential to our health.
Even the cleanest environment, room or air can still be filled with invisible - sometimes visible - particles and dirt that can affect our health, or even aggravate existing health issues.
This is why having an air purifier is a great idea, as they help to reduce concentrations of pollutants in the air you're breathing in.
Particularly in Dubai, where we spend 80% of our day in air conditioning, blown from systems that we can't guarantee are clean or pollutant-free.
Not only do air purifiers clean the air, but they're also very helpful for individuals who suffer from asthma or allergies.
How do air purifiers work?
Air purifiers are appliances that aid in the removal of air pollutants and have HEPA filters that assist with cleaning and purifying the air that is circulated. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air and is a type of air filter that purifies the air by trapping particles and small particles that a vacuum would just recirculate into the air.
The HEPA filter in an air purifier removes around 99.9% of dust particles and impurities from the air; including pollen, mold, spores, pet dander and/or dust mites.
The benefits of having an air purifier
Did you know, experts consider you to be at a "high priority public health risk" when you are inside your own home, which is where most asthma triggers are found.
Triggers include dry skin cells, dust, dirt, carbon monoxide, household cleaners, air-freshener, smoke from cooking, paint, cosmetics, perfumes and hairsprays. In addition, there may be mold spores, ants or cockroaches.

Sounds gross, right? But if you suffer from asthma, allergies or have a respiratory condition that is worsened by airborne particles, an air purifier will help to provide you with some relief when breathing and ensure your air is clean!
For smokers, or those who have a relative that smokes, having one in your home will help. Plus air purifiers can be particularly useful for pet owners, who have to deal with urine, pet odors and dander.
In Dubai, air purifiers can also trap insects like mosquitoes and other flying insects that may spread disease or infections.
