Causes of Odours
Household odours can have many causes, some of the common causes being washing machines, dishwashers, fridges, general waste, carpets, furniture, mildew and pets.
Most odours come and go, however sometimes they can linger for days or weeks at a time, depending on the source of the smell.
Your sense of smell is activated by special sensory cells in your nose called olfactory receptor neurons, they react to certain molecules and generate signals in your brain and this causes you to experience different smells.
Dealing With Odours
You can open windows to try and get rid of the smell while looking for the source, but during cold periods this may not always be an option.
Our high performance air purifiers don’t only remove harmful contaminants, viruses and bacteria from the air but they also remove odours.
Using our air purifiers equipped with our unique and patented DNO technology you and your family can breathe safe, clean and fresh smelling air all year round.
The Health Effects Linked To Poor Indoor Air Quality
While odours are mostly harmless, real threats exist in the air and are odourless and more difficult to detect. It is important the air quality indoors is controlled and properly maintained due to the health issues that can arise from breathing contaminated air.
Here are some of the health effects linked to poor indoor air quality:
- Aggravated asthma.
- Development of chronic respiratory disease in children.
- Development of chronic bronchitis or chronic obstructive lung disease.
- Premature death in people with heart or lung disease, including death from lung cancer.
- Sulphur and Nitrogen dioxide can cause respiratory problems such as bronchitis. It may cause coughing, wheezing, phlegm and asthma attacks.
- Dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin.
- Shortness of breath.
- Hypersensitivity and allergies.
- Sinus congestion.
- Coughing and sneezing.
Breathing Clean Air Indoors
You can breathe deeply and safely indoors with an air purifier capable of removing harmful pollutants.
Our medical grade purifiers capture, kill and convert harmful pollutants including formaldehyde, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), ammonia, odour, ozone, bacteria, virus (including COVID-19), pollen, Carbon Monoxide, Benzene, Sulphur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide and particles smaller than PM2.5.
Intelligent sensors automatically detects particles and gases in your room, constantly reporting them on the LED screen along with temperature and humidity levels.
Purer Clean Air® purifiers are rated as HEPA filter, MERV 13 – medical grade.
Purer Clean Air® purifiers are rated as P4 and F4 grades, the highest levels of performance on the CCM scale.
Clean Air In Vehicles
Using our vehicle air purifiers you are able to provide yourself and your passengers with safe air to breathe when in the car.
Air pollutants found in vehicles include nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, micron-level particulate matter, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. All have a damaging impact on the health of people and the environment. Many areas and particularly cities still fail to meet the health based national air quality objectives and limit values – especially for smaller particles and nitrogen dioxide.
The use of our In Vehicle air filtration units with patented DNO filters will purify air pollutants including formaldehyde, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), ammonia, odour, ozone, bacteria, virus (including COVID-19), pollen, Carbon Monoxide, Benzene, Sulphur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide and particles smaller than PM2.5.
