      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Danita, this would work great in a hair salon. The pre filter will capture larger particles such as hair, activated carbon filter will remove VOCs and the true HEPA will capture the finer particles.

          Excellent product
          Purchasing this air purifier was at my last resort. I searched for the best air purifiers and this one come up in my search. I was sold on not replacing the filters. I placed it in my living room and set it on automatic. All I can say is, that is the dust is almost non-existent. I haven't had to dust multiple times a day. It's amazing and it's worth the price.

            Excellent
            I have been using this air purifier for 3 months to help with allergies, asthma and pets. It's exceeded my expectations. The price was competitive, filters also on the lower end for these products. The noise level not an issue, I don't even think about it, we run it on high (level 3 of 4) 24/7. And I can see it working, I vacuum the pre-filter weekly when I vacuum the house and can visibly see the dust, dog hair on it. I also just changed the charcoal filter for the first time and it was covered in stuff. and that filters just meant for odors but is was so covered with stuff it went from black to gray color. The hepa filter isn't scheduled to be changed anytime soon but I may opt to change early since it does seem to be taking in a lot and I want to keep it at optimal performance. This model has plasma feature which I have opted to keep off. I don't like the idea of it emitting ozone but that's your call. the important thing is it is there if you want it and can be turned off if you don't. I also love how the machine has an indicator to show air quality and changes colors. The one thing I don't like is that the lights only dim in sleep mode, which is level one. I wish that I could manually turn lights off. Instead I put black electrical tape over it (see photo), and that has worked well. It is the best looking one I've found and small for it's coverage size. it is light, has a handle and very easy to move from room to room. I plan on buying more for other rooms. I am very happy with this purchase.

              Lemon or a very expensive fan?
              Writing this on 9.12. while the quality of air in Seattle is the worst in the world due to wildfires. Bought the unit yesterday. Initially, the light was red, then amber, then blue, which is what should happen as the unit purifies the air. When I moved it to another room on the upper floor, it remained blue, and that made no sense. This morning I moved the unit back to the living room, and to my surprise, never went to amber or red. So I took it the garage, a structure not attached to the house where the air is as bad as it is outside. Light? Blue! So I either have a unit with a bad sensor, or this thing is just one nice looking but very expensive fan.

                I had a terrible chemical smell in my apt. I was getting rashes and a sore throat from it. I’ve been running the purifier non stop for several weeks. The smelled has been reduced by 90%. My allergic reactions have been greatly reduced as well.

                No Difference
                In all honesty, I wanted to Love this product. I read reviews and watched plenty of videos on it before making the plunge and purchasing it, since it’s not a cheap buy. However, I’ve had it for a little over a month and I feel there is no difference living with it or without it. I don’t know if an air cleaner would work better for people that, smoke cigarettes inside their home, for people who have pets indoors that shed a lot or for people that just don’t dust their house. However, none of that is applicable to me, therefore I don’t see a diffence. I do have allergies and lately my allergies have acted up more than usual, or more so in a long time, and as I would think the air cleaner should be helpful for that, I feel that the air cleaner has done nothing. I am dissapointed as I did want to love this product and hoped for it to be so beneficial, though I feel it hasn’t whatsoever. P.s. My partner things the same thing. The two stars given is for the hype on it and the cool look to it.

                  Works great!
                  This air purifier works really well. We unfortunately have a smoker in the house, but this keeps my bedroom smoke-free. Also, when my husband passes gas, the air quality light turns red so I know it’s working!

                    So far the machine is doing its job we are pleased with its performance thus far. Only been using it for several days now as we just bought the device. It is portable so we have been moving it around the house and its doing its job. Nice and quiet even at the higher fan speed it is pretty quiet and acceptable level of fan noise. I say noise but not irritating/loud noises. Yes we would recommend this to anyone wanting a decent air cleaner.
