Pet odors are a real problem for many pet owners, and sometimes for visiting friends and family who are also sensitive or have allergies. And what many pet owners don’t think about is that many odors come from bacteria feeding on organic material, airborne feces and other dander particles, not just their scent glands or urine residue.
Still, finding the right air purifier to remove pet odors effectively can be tough, as well, and if you’re not careful or don’t know what to look for, you’ll probably end up wasting your money on an air cleaner that just doesn’t work or doesn’t remove odors for very long. And then you’re stuck with an air purifier that doesn’t clean the air properly, and you still have your allergies to deal with.
Getting rid of pet odors is actually pretty easy if you have an air purifier that has the necessary features, such as enough activated carbon, a strong output, and possibly negative ions. Air cleaners from Austin Air, Aller Air, and Blueair come with all of these features plus great HEPA filters, and consequently, do a great job of removing pet odors, dander—and preventing allergies, asthma and respiratory problems for both the pet and the owners. The Austin Pet Machine comes with 15 pounds of carbon & zeolite blend that easily absorbs tough cat & dog urine odors, bird odors and smells from other animals.
Aller Air purifiers come with anywhere from 12 to 36 pounds or more of super activated carbon that also does a great job of removing pet odors and dander. And both of these air cleaner brands have an output of 400 CFM or cubic feet per minute. That means it will remove all of the pet odor, dander, hair & dust from an average room in about 3 minutes. That’s pretty quick—which means you and your family won’t have a chance to breathe those pollutants before the air cleaner can grab them.
Blueair air purifiers also remove pet odors very well, with their patented G.O. Gas & Odor SmokeStop filter—less carbon but extra strong for absorbing tough chemicals and odors, even cigarette smoke odors. Blueair air cleaners also release healthy negative ions which further purify the air by destroying bacteria that cause many odors, and disintegrate many odor-causing organic compounds, as well. If you like the Blueair features and Swiss-styling, the 450E or 650E would be your best air purifiers for pet odors.
All so-called ‘pet air cleaners’ aren’t the same, however, so don’t be fooled. Bottom line is that first, purely ionic air cleaners with a thin foam carbon filter probably won’t do a very good job of removing the odors since there isn’t enough carbon to absorb the chemicals that cause the odors. And, if the output isn’t at least about 200 CFM, you’re most likely going to breathe or smell the odors before the air cleaner gets to them, and that’s defeating the purpose. For effective pet odor removal, it’s best to stay with Aller Air 5000 or 6000 series, The Austin Pet Machine or Healthmate Plus, or Blueair 450E or 650E. All of these are proven, effective HEPA air filtration units for removing tough cat, dog, bird and other pet odors, as well as over 99% of the allergy & asthma causing hair, dander and other particles, leaving you super-clean, odor free air every day.
