Air Filtration

Before I begin my review of the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier, I must disclose a few things. First, I am asthmatic. Most of the time I’m fine, but my symptoms can go from 0 to 60 at warp speed. Second, we live in Florida, home of perpetual pollen. Third, we have two large dogs… Read More

Pollen, pet dander and spores: These are the bane of the existence of anyone with asthma and allergies. But be prepared to breathe easier: The IQAir HealthPro Plus removes 99.97% of pollutants including VOCs, particulate matter and ultra-fine particles, which are the most insidious because they can be breathed into your lungs and go directly… Read More

This post brought to you by Fellowes . All opinions are 100% mine. In the past few months, my family and I moved into a condo.  Our old house was the dustiest house in the world, but we didn’t have any pollutants from nearby houses.  In the condo, we are in a building that’s occupied… Read More

When I think of air filters, I picture large devices that are too big to use in an office cubicle – and they certainly won’t work in a car.  The Air Naturalizer from CritterZone is only 4.5″H x 2.75″W x 2″D, so it’s small enough to place discreetly near your pet’s bed or litter box to… Read More

This is my first air cleaner and quite frankly, I wasn’t too sure how I was going to check it out.  However, thanks to Mother Nature and the mother of all pollen seasons, the AirGenius5 from Kaz USA was working overtime, and it did just fine.  If you think this is an endorsement of the product, you… Read More

My daughter has asthma and allergies.  The asthma isn’t as bad as when she was very young, but she can still have some problems, usually triggered by colds or prolonged exposure to allergens (like pollen in the spring).  We live in what I call the dustiest house in the world, which doesn’t help things.  When… Read More

Even though there are many products on the market that claim to disinfect or purify air/water/objects, they typically ask us to trust they’re working on blind faith with no way to actually show that there’s a tangible toxin in need of removing.  With typical air purifiers, there will eventually be the bits of dust or… Read More

My daughter, Rachel, has asthma, so a clean environment can be a great help in keeping her lungs in good shape.  She has allergies to various pollens and foods that can trigger asthma episodes.  Every time she gets a cold, she also has problems.  Dust can also cause a lot of problems for her.  Dust… Read More
