I’ve owned purifiers in the past where you’ve needed 5 ft of clearance between the wall and the device for the air flow to work correctly. It always seemed to me to be a ridiculous functionality issue. I’d like to place my purifiers in the corner and let them be, but most of them need to much clearance they end up becoming a piece of furniture.
I’ve owned this device. I didn’t love it, but you have to realize that you get what you pay for. I paid about $120 for it, I think the price has gone up, but your are NOT going to get a great purifier for that money.
What it DID do was cut down on the time I spent dusting and cleaning up dog hair, and that was probably worth the price (I have a husky)
HA! I had a GSD (German shepherd) and a dinky purifier saved me probably 30 hours over the course of my life cleaning up hair off the floor.
The purifier I had was one you just put on a desk, i’m not sure it purified anything, but the filter would get filled with hair every two weeks so you know it was working that way.
Devil’s ivy is another option, see it here:
It filters out formaldehyde, benzene, xylene and toluene.
In Australia we have them in our houses, not sure about in America.
