Several studies have suggested that, in a typical home, the kitchen is by far the dirtiest room. This makes sense if you think about it; the kitchen is where you store and prepare food, which is a vast source of biological contamination. (Just think about all of the salmonella warnings for various vegetables in the past year!)
Of course, we all try to keep the kitchen clean, but even the act of cleaning often just creates more germs. Sponges, for instance, are notorious for being bacterial breeding grounds. Simply washing a sponge doesn’t destroy all the bacteria. The best way to sterilize a sponge is to wet it and then place it in the microwave for a minute or two. The heat from the microwave is sure to fry all living microorganisms. (Note: If you try this, be sure to wet the sponge first, and let it cool down before removing it.)
The AirFree Air Sterilizer also uses heat to destroy microorganisms – and the best thing about this air purifier is that you can literally “plug it in and forget about it.” There’s absolutely no maintenance involved – no moving parts, no filters, no bulbs, nothing to clean, nothing to replace.
The AirFree air purifier works by drawing air up into the unit by convection. The air rises through the ceramic core, which is heated to 400° F. This intense heat destroys all germs. The air is then cooled and released through the top of the unit. Since there are no moving parts, operation is totally silent.
Don’t worry about the extreme heat: the ceramic core is completely enclosed, so it’s safe to use in your home, even in the company of curious children and pets. You cannot feel the heat of the core if you touch the unit, and it doesn’t increase the surrounding room temperature.
I do quite a bit of cooking, so I placed my AirFree air cleaner in the kitchen. I may get another one to place near the cat litter box. As this innovative air cleaner incinerates germs, it also destroys the sources of many household odors.
AirFree air sterilizers have been used to control germs on chicken farms; to protect artwork and sensitive documents from mold and mildew; to extend the life of fresh fruits and vegetables; and to kill germs in hospital rooms and nurseries.
Several independent lab studies show that AirFree air sterilizers destroy 80 to 90 percent of mold, bacteria, and viruses in the air. The convenient, compact air sterilizers also denature allergens like pollen, dust mite feces, and pet dander. (However, since the AirFree purifier does not contain a fan or filter, it does not capture extremely large particles like dust clumps or pet hair.)
If you suffer from chronic sinusitis, this air purifier could be the solution to your problems. Over the past decade, scientists have discovered that fungal spores are responsible for the majority of chronic sinusitis cases. The AirFree air purifier destroys fungal spores so that mold cannot reproduce.
The AirFree air sterilizer is also energy efficient and chemical-free. While many room air cleaners emit ozone (a lung irritant), the AirFree sterilizer destroys ozone.
If you are concerned about mold, odors, or germs, or if you suffer from sinusitis, try the AirFree air purifier. No other air purifier on the market is as hassle-free. Overall, for its supreme ease of use and germ-killing efficacy, I give the AirFree air sterilizer five out of five stars.
