Best Air Purifiers & Dehumidifiers for Odours
A good quality HEPA filter can remove visible smoke particle but it is not able to remove the odour. There are also many other sources of odour in our homes and although some may seem mild they can compound to become quite offensive. Activated carbon is the most effective filter technology for household odours, gases and fumes. Unlike air fresheners and deodorants an activated carbon filter actually eliminates odours using a process called adsorption.
If you live in a damp or humid climate and are experiencing musty odours, you should also consider using a dehumidifier to lower the humidity and remove moisture from the air. Moist and humid environments also provide the perfect conditions for mould to grow.
