I am a huge believer in air purification. I enjoy walking into my home and feeling it's welcoming clean feeling. Not the pretend clean I call it where is masked by air fresheners. (I have no issues with air fresheners I use them myself especially by the dog, I am referring to the masked smells that some do so well)
why do I adore air purification so much? well here's a hopefully quick explanation...
Wind the clock back to when I was 8 and I had pneumonia followed by a collapsed lung. It was horrifying. I felt like I was suffocating and I literally was. I couldn't breathe well had tubes helping me and constant oxygen supply on 24/7, I was in the hospital for months, then I came home, I was still ill I had recovered enough to have the tubes removed, I had nurses to help 3 times a day, my family were given strict instructions not to allow the home to get dirty and the windows had to stay shut, with a fan exiting my room. My brother came to visit me. He was told but dismissed the instructions. He persisted to smoke like a train. At the time I didn't know what chemical pollution was, I just assumed dust was bad and didn't move away from him. I was back in the hospital within the hour struggling even more then last time. This time I had to be taken to the OR. It was awful. I spent another 2 months in hospital and when I came out my grandfather had made me a air filter. It was a simple design a box with medium on one side and a fan on the other. My room was so clean the air fresh and never again did my brother ignore instructions.
So that's why I'm careful about home air. I have to be my lungs are still weak but I do what I can to ensure the air quality is excellent around me.
Now the reason these aren't worth your money?
They simply don't work. I did a dust rest and it sucked up nothing. The clean smell you get it the newness of the machine. Inside you open the filter and see no discoloration after a week's use. Bless you no it's not that my home is impeccable and clean.
