Who doesn’t love having a pet as a member of the family?! Some of us don’t have to worry about our cuddly fur balls giving us the sniffles, but many people aren’t so lucky. Allergies or not, a lot of families in the U.S. own pets, and about 2 million allergic pet parents live with at least one cat! In fact, according to the Humane Society, there are an estimated 78.2 million dogs and 86.4 million cats owned in the United States. That’s a lot of fur and dander floating around the air inside our households! The bottom line, pets are part of our families and part of the fabric of our lives. The benefits of companionship seem to far outweigh the drawbacks of pet allergies for many owners. Thanks to our friends at Airocide, we have a solution to all of your furry problems!
Living comfortably with a pet is different for everyone, and for those with allergies, it’s a constant battle between the upside of being a pet parent, and managing the symptoms that come with being exposed to the fur and dander pets bring into your home. And up until now, allergy sufferers have had only a few tools in their arsenal to battle allergies– including creating a pet-free zone in their homes, regular allergy shots and air purifiers, all of which have varying degrees of efficacy, costs, and ease of use.
Sounds fun right? Not surprisingly shots and pet-free zones aren’t the answer for many. Instead, many allergy suffering pet parents turn to air purification systems, with varying degrees of success, because unfortunately, there are drawbacks to most traditional air purification methods on the market.
HEPA filters can capture particles as small as 0.1 micrometers in diameter, but can’t filter out the smaller gas and odor molecules. So if you need to filter volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemical vapors, cigarette smoke, and pet odors, activated (charcoal) filters are needed in addition to a HEPA filter. And both these types of filters need to be changed frequently. HEPA filters trap particles and need to be changed or washed and charcoal filters cannot be reused once they are full, and at worst become so quickly saturated with toxins that they begin to leak. So in using these two methods together, pet parents find that they not only have to change the HEPA filter, but must also replace the charcoal filter, the cost of which varies widely according to market prices. Whew! That sounds like a complicated hassle to us!
Enter Airocide. A completely different kind of air purifier. It’s different because it doesn’t use filters to trap toxins in the air, nor does it need frequent and costly replacements. Instead, Airocide uses technology developed by NASA to completely obliterate and remove virtually 100% of harmful toxins from the air in your home. Not only does Airocide remove allergy triggers like mold, fungi, bacteria, viruses, dust mites and pollen, but it removes pet dander and the odors it causes plus the super bad, super small particles called VOCs – the harmful gasses emitted by products in your home like paint, furniture, aerosol sprays, building supplies and dry-cleaned clothing.
So, how does it work? Airocide draws in harmful airborne pathogens and forces them into a densely packed matrix of highly reactive catalysts that are activated by a high intensity 254-nanometerlight. When any organic particle comes into contact with the reactive catalysts, it is completely destroyed on contact. Nothing is captured or trapped like with traditional filters, so there is nothing to clean. All that exits is crisp, clear air, with no ozone emissions that can come from using ionic air purification systems. If you use Airocide in your home, it will eliminate all allergy triggers like pet odors and dander with one unit – and you’ll only have to change the reaction chamber about once a year!
Airocide is FDA approved, and has been tested with great results by governmental agencies and at major universities. Plus, Airocide has been used by grocery store chains and florists to remove the ethylene gas that causes fruits, vegetables and flowers to go bad more quickly. Airocide has also been used for years in hospitals, daycare centers and prisons to stop the spread of infectious diseases.
Airocide is truly a revolution in air purification, and thousands of pet parents have been getting great results from this recently launched air solution! Airocide will give you a breath of fresh air, even with your furry friends running around all over the house!
