    Small rooms only

    Posted

    The advertisement Best Buy had was pretty convincing: "Processes 456 cu. ft. of air per hour To keep your home smelling fresh and free of odors due to mildew, smoke, pet areas, cooking and more." With that, I would say when an ad reads: "home smelling fresh" I would and did assume its pretty powerful. I purchased 4 of these for use in bathrooms, as they claim they sanitize the air & help fight unpleasant odors. You need to have these in small areas and keeping the door closed is the only way to have the units work. Cant tell after 6 months if they are sanitizing at all but I can say they don't really do much for neutralizing the unpleasant odors I wondered why they did not list the square footage of the room they are designed for, that should be listed, kind of misleading as far as stating how many things it can do.

    I had a serious mold problem in my bathroom no matter how clean I kept it. So I purchase this product, cleaned my entire bathroom (floor,walls,windows,shower,etc). So far no new mold and no moldy smells. I purchase this air sanitizer a month ago and will continue to monitor it. So far I'm pleased with it.

    I purchased five units to install in various rooms in my house. Each one disinfects 400 cubic feet of air each hour and plugs directly into an outlet. There is a small fan running continuously which produces some sound but I did not find it bothersome. It is more on the order of white noise. The UV bulb is replaceable but I have not had to yet.

    I don't see a dramatic improvement in air quality solely due to this product yet since I use it with my other Germ Guardian purifier. However I've kept it running from day 1 (approx 3 weeks now) 24/7 and it is in good condition so far. Maybe I should try this in my bathroom and see if it works as advertised.

    I use this in my kitchen as I like to let my dishes pile up. (Saves water in my opinion). I have this placed DIRECTLY besides my kitchen sink It takes care of the any odors that may linger in the kitchen. When I do go to do the dishes is when I actually notice the smell, this seems to take care of it ever getting away from it.

    I use it for my bedroom which is neither small or overly large. It makes a slight humming/buzzing noise but its not distracting or anything. I've recommended this to a few people who've actually bought themselves one and it works for them.

    This does a great job near our dogs bedding. It keeps the area cleaner smelling and makes a nice soothing sound. My daughter wants one for her room just because of the relaxing sound it makes. I think they are discontinuing this product but I wish they were keeping it.

    This thing really does work. I can't smell the dogs when I walk into my house now. I will be buying a second one to put in the bathroom. It's a bit noisy but no louder than a fan. If I knew of a quieter one I'd buy that instead.

    This little plug in air purifier works great, As far as noise: its only slightly louder than a cable box running. It absolutely takes the odors out of the air! I recommend this product for anyone who wants a fresh smelling area it stays plugged in just fine.

    I love this product. Very quiet, allows me to sleep at night. Keeps the air fresh and clean. It also has a very cool look to it. I get a lot of questions about it when people come into my apartment.

    Bought this to remove the damp smells from our basement in our home. It has been effective in removing those smells and removing associate allergens from the air in a space that doesn't have a lot of cross ventilation.

    I purchased this unit for a basement area that is prone to mildew odors and I plugged it into a wall outlet nearby. Although it is a small unit, it seems to clean the air and reduces the mildew smell very effectively, but is very quiet.

    I like this product. Once the cigarette smoking has ceased the air is filtered and no smell. It dies not prevent the smoke from accumulating at that time. It does work great afterwards but not during.

    I bought this for my master bedroom. My room had sort of a "musty" kind of smell. I plugged it in around dinner time and by bed time (3hrs) my room smelled nice and fresh.

    This product keeps the bathroom fresh and odor free. It does exactly what it claims, and that is a very big positive. I will buy another one for the other bathroom in the house. Excellent product, excellent price.

    We put it right next to our stove and it gets rid of unpleasant cooking odors pretty well! It’s nice to know it’s killing bacteria too, but we mostly got it for its odor fighting!

    It’s great! But probably not the best. I personally Haven’t seen any differences since I’ve purchased it. Also, the loud noise, may take a little of getting use too

    I like that it seems to work good and is a plug in and does not take up space. Just wish it were built little different to stay secure in my plugs.
