Air Purifiers For Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

Air Purifiers For Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) - Aerify

What are the best air purifiers for volatile organic compounds (VOCs)?

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are the major group of air pollutants and repeated exposure to some of them can cause long-term health problems. Many household products, including paints, solvents, carpet, vinyl flooring, glues, cleaning supplies, fabric materials, furnishings, and a variety of cooking and cleaning activities, can emit VOCs. Air purifiers are a great way to lower the concentration of potentially dangerous organic chemicals in your home.

Air purifiers with activated carbon filters

Air cleaning using activated carbon filters is a tried-and-tested technology that has been used for many years to absorb vapours, odours and VOCs. Activated carbon filters clean the air by absorbing contaminants within the pore structure of the carbon. 

Air purifiers with photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology

Photocatalysis is a safe, highly effective technology that can eliminate VOCs. This process exposes ultraviolet light to a catalyst such as titanium dioxide to produce primarily hydroxyl radicals (OH). These hydroxyl radicals are extremely reactive and as a result, can neutralise harmful VOCs in indoor environments.
