Cat urine is strong stuff. And if you're reading this article, you already know that there are thousands of remedies available on the market that claim success at getting rid of the smell. You probably also know that many of them are labor intensive at best, and a large majority of them just do not work. Here are 4 reasons why using an air purifier is the best way to squelch feline urine odor.
Green Way To Clean —- Using a filter with a carbon based filter has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to get rid of odors. With an additive specifically designed to remove urine odor, this type of filtration can not be beat.
The only side effect from this type of filtration is clean, fresh air. And because this type of filter lasts for many years, it leaves less of a footprint on the environment than one that needs to be changed every 6 months.
Continuous Protection —- Filtering the air continuously means that even if an accident occurs the smell is constantly being removed. Let's face it, you can not be there every minute, and even if you are, you may or may not see where theappropriate elimination occurs. Constant filtration gives you time to find it and clear it away without the embarassing smell taking over your home.
Cost Effective —- By allowing your air to be cleaned continuously, you save yourself the aggravation of having to buy and try new products that may or may not work. With the right type of cleaner, keeping the air clean only cost pennies a day and can really make a huge difference in the way your home smells.
Removers Other Cat-Related Pollutants —- You know that odor is not the only issue when you live with a cat. Cat hair and dander are probably the two other pollutants you'd like to get rid of. Choosing a cleaner with a 4-step filtration process with the right type of filter will allow you to remove particles as well as odor.
An air purifier which also contains a high efficiency particle arresting (or HEPA) filter can take out these annoying particulates that often stay airborne long enough to be inhaled.
For those who are at all sensitive to the protein in the dander this is bad news. Constantly inhaling these invisible particles of dead skin (dander) can trigger wheezing, congestion, sneezing and watery eyes making it all but impossible to be around the cat.
Eliminates Odor When Cleaning Can not —– Sometimes ur goes where you can not clean. If urine goes through to padding under carpet or even into the flooring under the carpet, cleaning may not reach it. Pulling up the carpet and replacing the flooring can be incredibly expensive. The same is true for drywall or moldings in your home. A purifier will remove the temporary smell from these hard to clean places and keep your home smelling fresh all the time.
