WSTA W050T

3-in-one Device

As the majority of odor eliminators, air purifies, and air ionizers, this model from the WSTA company is equipped with the HEPA filter which is able to capture and neutralize up to 99% of different allergens.

The WSTA air purifier, ionizer, and cleaner at once is intended for complex purification of air from pungent smells, various pollutants, harmful bacteria, dangerous viruses, fungal formations, and other issues.

Have you ever thought why it is so easy for us to breathe after rain or on a sunny morning? This is all because nature has its own ionizer - lightning and solar rays.

So, you get a double benefit!

The main advantages of this air cleaner are:
• It boasts excellent air filtration;
• It's ideal for allergy sufferers and asthmatics;

Hamilton Beach 04530GM

A Versatile Device

A good air purifier just needs to become an everyday companion of every citizen. Carbon air cleaners are considered to be one of the best modern "fighters" with nasty smells. And this device by Hamilton can make the air in your apartment as clean and fresh as possible. Its carbon filter eliminates the smoke of cigarettes, harmful gases, and other unpleasant odors. Granular activated carbon has an extensive porous filtering area. Due to this, the Hamilton odor eliminator with its "know how" filter absorbs odd scents, allergens, mold, toxic substances, fungi, and other dangerous elements.

As for the operation principle of this model, it uses coal that with its water-repellent surface does not spend energy on absorbing water but completely absorbs molecules of unpleasant odors. This is why the Hamilton odor eliminator is more efficient compared to other odor eliminators for homes. However, the efficiency of the Hamilton coal filter directly depends on the room size (20 sq meters are optimal for it).

This Hamilton beach true air odor eliminator plugs into a conventional 110-volt outlet, which contributes to the usability of this model. Also, it's equipped with a filter replacement indicator that is also a nice touch.

Remember, the filter of the Hamilton Beach true air odor eliminator requires replacement every three months (on average). Overall, this is one of the best smoke odor eliminators that is very functional and usable.

Gideon GD-UVSNTZ-01

UV Helper

Every year, the air becomes more and more polluted. This problem bothers many people, as it might lead to health problems. The most dangerous one is that the air is full of pathogens and bacteria. In order to kill them, we use ultraviolet air purifiers such as the Gideon Electronic Plug-in Air Purifier with UV Air Sanitizer. Dangerous germs pass through it, and, as a result, the structure of their DNA is destroyed by UV. Thanks to this system, the air becomes as pure as possible.

The built-in ultraviolet lamp in this scent remover not only neutralizes harmful microbes and bacteria in your room but improves air quality as well. We would like to note that this model has nothing to do with the powerful medical UV lamps when you need to leave a room after switching on. The consumed power of this ultraviolet lamp is only 8 W.

But the built-in UV lamp is not the only advantage of the Gideon air cleaner. It also:

  • uses advanced ion sputtering technology and is completely silent;
  • emits negative ions to make the air clean and fresh;
  • improves general well-being;
  • eliminates unpleasant odors, bacteria, and allergens affecting the mucous membrane;
  • prevents the formation of fungus and mold in the room.

This scent remover will be a perfect solution for people who are looking for an affordable and reliable odor eliminator for home. Using the Gideon room odor eliminator with a new generation ultraviolet lamp is very simple. You just need to plug it in and enjoy the fresh air in your room.

What Is an Odor Eliminator?

Foul odors might negatively impact on human health. Even if you do not feel any odd smell in a room, you can experience headaches, nausea, and depression after a while. The problem of polluted air is really acute today because human health is constantly influenced by car exhaust, street dust, and other harmful emissions. Odor eliminators are designed to protect people not only from the harmful impact of polluted air but also from pollen, pet dander, smoke, fungi, gems, and different unpleasant odors. The odor eliminator systems operate in a fairly simple way - they are fitted with a set of filters which purify the air around. In addition, they have a special fan that pulls in the air for cleaning.

However, you should keep in mind that odor eliminators only neutralize smells and clean the air in your room. They neither drain nor humidify the air. For these purposes, you can get an air humidifier or air washer.
