Cat Shelter Air Cleaner---5 Features That A Cat Shelter Air Purifier Must Have

Author : Debbie Davis

Cat odor, particularly cat urine odor, is one of the most difficult smells to eliminate. Multiply that smell by 25, 50, or even more cats, and you have a smell that can literally take your breath away. And cats' noses are much more sensitive than human ones, so the smell is no picnic for them either.

Using an air purifier to remove dander, hair, and odor to keep the air smelling fresh and clean is the best way to head off problems. Here are 5 things a cleaner must be able to do to be effective.

Able to Run 24 Hours---Keeping the air clear means never allowing pollutants to build to unacceptably high levels. This means continuously filtering the air. Being able to trust the filtration unit to clean effectively and safely 24 hours a day is a must. Look for a unit that has a split capacitor motor designed for continuous operation without needing to be turned on or off unless the filter is being replaced. This will assure a clean smell for both you and your clients.

Uses HEPA Filtration---High efficiency particle arresting (or HEPA) technology by definition means that for every 10,000 airborne particulates that are.3 microns or greater, like cat hair and dander, it has been proven to remove 99,997 of them with 97% efficiency. This means that the airborne particles that viruses and bacteria often attach to can be eliminated by this filter.

Reducing both the particles and the germs will go a long way towards keeping the cats and the people who care for them healthy. This type of filtration is used in hospitals to insure clean air and is safe for all living things. The only by-product is odor and particulate-free air.

Low Maintenance--Running a shelter is a demanding job both emotionally and physically. Rescuing them, providing for them, and trying to find a good home for them is a huge job. The last thing you need is one more thing to do. Maintenance should be low and require vacuuming the cleaner as often as you clean the facility.

Having to constantly clean the filter means down time for the cleaner and a rise in the very pollutants you are trying to eliminate. It also means someone's time is not being used in the best way. Instead opt for a filter that can last years without being changed.

Multiple Filtration Process---The more filters a unit has the able it is to remove different kinds of pollutants. It also means that you will need to replace the filter less often.

Look for a large and medium particle pre-filter. These will trap the big particles that you can. A HEPA filter is essential because of its ability to trap particles that are too small to see. Only consider a cleaner that can eliminate cat urine odor. A unit with a 4-stage filtration process is clearly going to be more effective than one that only has one filter, or worse, no filter.

Filter for Odor Removal---Carbon has been proven to be the best filter for removing odor. And in a sanctuary for felines, this is probably the filter that will make the most noticeable difference and how the air smells. A cleaner that combines carbon with a special additive that can remove the urine smell is a winning combination and one that can make your shelter a pleasant place for cats and those who love them.
