How air purifiers can help reduce pet hair allergies

An estimated one in three people on the planet are allergic to pets. Pet dander is one of the most prevalent allergies and can produce various symptoms, ranging from sneezing to itchy eyes. Air purifiers have been proven to reduce pet dander and other allergens from the air, which aids in the reduction of pet hair allergies.

What are pet hair allergies, and what are the symptoms? 

People with pet hair allergies are hypersensitive to pet dander. Pet hair allergies can cause a variety of symptoms, including: 

  • Sneezing 
  • Runny nose 
  • Itchy, watery eyes 
  • Congestion 
  • Coughing 
  • Wheezing 
  • Difficulty breathing 

In severe cases, pet allergies can trigger an asthma attack. Asthma is a chronic lung condition that causes the airways to swell and narrow, making breathing difficult. 

What is pet dander? 

Pet dander is made up of pet hair, skin cells, and saliva. It’s incredibly lightweight and sticky, so it easily sticks to clothes, furniture, and other surfaces. Pet dander can also float in the air for long periods, which is why it’s so difficult to avoid if you’re allergic. 

How do air purifiers help reduce pet hair allergies? 

Air purifiers can help remove pet dander and other allergens from the air, making it easier to breathe and reducing the likelihood of an asthma attack. Air Care Solution’s HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters are the most effective air purifier for pet allergies. They can remove 99.99% of particles from the air, including pet dander. 

If you or a loved one suffers from pet allergies, an air purifier can make a big difference in your quality of life. By reducing pet dander and other allergens in the air, air purifiers can help you to breathe easier and reduce your symptoms. 

How to choose the right air purifier for pet hair allergies 

If you or a loved one suffers from pet hair allergies, choosing the right air purifier is essential. Not all air purifiers work in the same manner, and some are better at removing pet dander and other allergens from the air. 

When choosing an air purifier, you should keep a few things in mind. The first is the size of the unit. The second is the specific needs of your allergies. And the third is the type of filter. 

To get the most out of your air purifier, it’s important to choose the right size for your needs. The size of the room will also play a role in how effective the air purifier is. Choose a unit designed for the specific square footage of your home. 

To find an air purifier that will work best for pet allergies, it’s important to know what you’re looking for. Look for an air purifier with a HEPA filter. HEPA filters are the most effective at removing pet dander and other allergens from the air. 

How do air purifiers remove pet hair from the air? 

Air purifiers with high-quality filters can remove particles from the air as large as 99.9%, including pet dander. They filter the air in your house or workplace and reduce allergens by using UV light sterilisation and ionisation to create a sophisticated filtration system. 

The Air Care Solutions RUHENS air purifiers include a 4 or 8-stage filtration: The air is filtered by a 4 or 8-stage filtration process, including a HEPA H13 filter. This filter can trap particles as small as 0.1 microns, making it incredibly effective at removing pet dander and other allergens from the air. 

  • Twin UV lights (universally known as UVC) are at the heart of RUHENS air purifiers and provide enhanced disinfection and protection. UVC radiation, on the other hand, kills germs by promoting complete cellular breakdown, making it an extremely successful and silent method of sterilisation against pet dander and other allergens, viruses and bacteria. 
  • Ionisation targets fine and nanoparticle pollution. RUHENS air purifiers also release negative ions into the air. These ions attach themselves to pet dander and other allergens, making them heavier so the filter can more easily catch them. This technology is already used in different settings like hospitals to purify the air and is now available for your home. 

The best types of air purifier for pet hair allergies 

There are many various types of air purifiers available to buy, so it’s critical to get one that is suited to your needs. Some air purifiers are made particularly for allergies, while others can remove a variety of pollutants from the environment. 

  • Pet and tobacco smoke air purifiers are used to trap and eliminate particles from the air in tobacco and pet areas. The RUHENS WHA 200, which generates ions through ion cluster emission, is a convenient but powerful air purification solution for rooms up to 45m2. 
  • Tower air purifiers like the RUHENS WHA 320 are excellent for apartments or one floor in a residential building up to 70m2 in size due to their small footprint. With a dust sensor that is capable of detecting up to PM 2.5 (ultrafine particles), this air purifier allows you to monitor the air quality in your venue in real-time. The built-in cluster ioniser is also effective at removing germs and odours from the air. 
  • Maintaining excellent air quality is particularly vital in bigger flats or houses measuring up to 140m2. The technology of eliminating bacteria and viruses from the indoor air is known as UV radiation. Floor air purifiers with eight strong filters, such as the RUHENS WHA 400 UVC, are highly efficient at filtering out ultra-fine dust, airborne viruses, germs, and harmful chemicals (ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, acids).
