ROOM AIR CLEANERS
Please keep in mind that there are many air purification devices out there some are HEPA Type, TRUE HEPA, and IONIZERS. Ions are naturally created and present in the outdoors and indoors. The indoor air has approximately 100 to 200 ions per cubic cm, outdoor fresh air has 200 to 500 ions per cubic cm, and a fresh clean forest will have 1,500 to 5,000 ions per cubic cm. Ion generators typically produce more than 1,000,000 to 10,000,000 per cubic cm. Why so much? This huge amount is needed to push the particles to the walls or floor.
IS IONIZATION EFFECTIVE?
No. It is very likely that less than 5% of the particles will be collected by the room ionizer, and the remaining 95% will end up covering your walls, floors, ceilings, and other positively charged objects. Since the air flow of ionizers are limited to a small area, 95% of the air borne particles will not make it back to the ionizer.
Ions filter the air by attaching themselves to various particles and adhering to the closest positively charged surface. In your home your ionizer will be positively charged as well as your walls, ceiling, and floors.
Therefore if you own an ionizer you may find that it will simply drop dust out of the air. This creates less dust floating around in the air and more dust settling on the objects that you touch and walk on.
