Air Purifier for Bird Dander


Visitors: 197

If you have a bird in your home, or office you probably spend many hours watching, feeding, and talking to it, and you may even let it out to fly around inside occasionally. And each time it shakes, flaps it wings, or hops from one perch to another, dander (microscopic pieces of dead skin) is released into the air. Multiply the number of times you think your bird flaps or shakes each day by even as few as 20 particles of dander, and you can see that bird dander becomes an issue very quickly, particularly if dander is an allergen for you or someone in your family. Using an air cleaner for bird dander is the most effective way to consistently eliminate the dander that your bird constantly produces. Here are 4 features to look for when deciding on an effective air purifier for bird dander.

Opt for a HEPA air purifier. High efficiency particle arresting HEPA air purifiers are designed to remove particles as small as .3 microns. Dander ranges in size from 12-100 microns in size. By selecting an air purifier that has the capacity to remove particulates smaller than 12 microns, such as a HEPA air purifier, you will insure that the dander is effectively removed.

Look for 24 hour coverage. Since bird dander is constantly becoming airborne, you should select an air purifier that is designed to work constantly so that the air in your space is constantly being filtered and remains fresh and free from dander.

Select an air purifier that is durable. If you are to use your air purifier day in and day out to keep up with bird dander, the air purifier you choose should be constructed with all steel parts, have a baked on powder coat finish to prevent out gassing, and should have a substantial warranty of 5 years.

Keep purifier maintenance low. If you lead an active lifestyle, you want an air purifier that basically takes care of itself. Choose an air purifier that requires only occasional filter changes, and has a filter changing process that is easily done.

Birds are a lovely addition to any space, but birds without the dander are even lovelier. Choosing a HEPA air purifier that can run dependably, that is made of steel, is well constructed, and has a substantial warranty will help you find the best air purifier for you, your family, and your bird.
