In our last blog, we discussed the VOC air purifier and how it can be used to filter out harmful chemicals and fumes that are present in the environment. We know that air purifiers can help with alleviating allergies, but what about unpleasant smells? In this bog, we’ll explain how you can use our pet odor purifiers to eliminate pet odors from your home.
While owning a pet is one of life’s greatest joys, it can be problematic when you have to deal with pet odor in your home. Although you and your family may grow accustomed to the odors caused by pets and cease to notice them, guests are often all too aware, which makes for an awkward dinner party experience!
You’re Not Alone
HomeAirGuides.com states that roughly 35% of households have a cat and 44% of households have a dog; which means that many families deal with pet odors on a daily basis. Many of these families may not know that a good air purifier designed for dealing with pet odor could help relieve some of the lingering scents your furry family members can leave behind.
Air purifiers equipped with an Activated Carbon filter are specifically used for removing cat and dog odor. A HEPA filter is effective for dealing with pet dander but it doesn’t help to eliminate the scent that’s left behind.

How Does a Pet Odor Air Purifier Help?
As mentioned above, the proper air filter can in fact help remove pet odors from your home. In order to do this effectively you must ensure that you’re using a proper activated carbon filter.
Activated carbon works by essentially grabbing onto chemicals in the air that carry pet odor and capturing them in the filter. This allows the clean air to pass through and the unwanted chemicals to get trapped in the filter itself. If you use a HEPA filter as well, the activated carbon filter will also help with catching dust, pet hair, and other particles, which in turn allows your HEPA filter to last longer.
