Recently, one of my colleagues (and neighbors) suffered through what many of us here in the Bay Area have come to think of as the weirdest and worst weeks in recent history.
First up was the compact LEVOIT Air Purifier Vista 200 designed with a three-stage filtration system that includes a pre-filter, an H13 true HEPA filter, and a high-efficiency activated carbon filter. Together they work to eliminate dust mites, mold spores, allergens, odors, pet dander, smoke, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). It also has a sleep mode that runs the fan at its lowest setting so it makes minimal noise while still filtering the air.
If you're looking for something to cover more ground (325 square feet to be exact), the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier uses HEPA and activated charcoal filters that help get rid of 99. 97% of pollen, pollutant, and other allergen particles in the air. It also helps reduce fumes! Plus it comes with a washable and permanent pre-filter to catch larger dust particles — oh, and it'll work with your Alexa devices!
And, finally, try the Germ Guardian Pluggable Air Purifier & Sanitizer perfect for any small spaces — it's a pluggable air sanitizer that uses UV-C light to help kill airborne viruses which means there are no filter replacements just a single GermGuardian UV-C light bulb that needs to be replaced every 10 to 12 months depending on use.
Smell that? That's the smell of fresh air!
