If you run
a kennel, you know how important it is to have it look and smell pristine. It's important to have clean surroundings for the sake of the animals and their owners as well as your staff. Here are 3 features that will insure your kennel air is always fresh.
Portability---Some areas of your space will often need more filtration than others. For instance,
if the drop-off area is separate from the area where the pets are housed, it is likely this area will not need the kind of filtration that the other area will need.
Having a portable yet powerful system that you can roll from one area to
another is a useful option. Since
air cleaners work by
filtering the air closest to it, you
can see how handy this feature can be.
A portable unit also means that your filtration is only dependent on having an outlet that you can plug in to. This allows you to move it across the room, across town to another location, or
across the country.
24 Hour Operation---Hair and dander get sent airborne continuously. Regardless of whether your space is for birds, cats, dogs, or ferrets, all warm-blooded animals produce the invisible dander and the all too visible hair.
Normal movements will send it airborne continuously so you need a filtration system that can be just as relentless about removing it. Allowing the system to run all the times means that hair and dander as well as other particulates never get the chance to accumulate to the point
that they can cause those will allergies and asthma to have a reaction.
Clearing the air is also a great offensive move. Often people who have been perfectly healthy can develop sensitivity to these irritants when forced to breathe high concentrations for prolonged periods of time.
Look for a split capacitor motor. It is designed for continuous high revolutions per minute and can keep
up with the particles your animals produce.
Right Combination Of Filters---Probably the 3 biggest issues with warm-blooded pets are hair, dander, and odor. Your unit should have filters that address all of these problems.
Since particles range in size from the visible to invisible the filter sizes should have that same range. Large and medium particle pre-filters should be a must as they trap big particles and drastically cut down on the number of times you will need to replace the filter.
A HEPA or high efficiency particle arresting filter is necessary to trap microscopic particles such as the invisible dander. By definition this type of filter must be able to trap 99,997 out of every 10,000 airborne particles that are .3 microns or greater in size.
And while it's
true that this type of filter could also trap bigger particles, the pre-filters will allow this finer filter to be used for only the microscopic particles.
None of the filters care about the source of the particles, so not only will they trap particles produces by your animals, but other more normal indoor particulates as well. Expect that it will also eliminate dust, pollen, mold and mildew spores, and airborne bacteria and viruses.
And last but certainly not least, is the odor issue. No unit is worth its salt unless it is able to effectively eliminate odor, including urine odor. In order to eliminate gaseous pollutants a carbon filter is a must.
And as wonderful as carbon is at eliminating odors, for urine odor it needs an additive to enhance its ability to remove the ammonia that is eye-stinging component of urine. As its name
suggests, ammonasorb has been found to be highly effective at eliminating urine odor.
PurerAir.com offers a kennel filtration system that has a 4-stage filtration process through 3 particle filters (including a HEPA)
and a carbon-enhanced filter with ammonasorb. Put it to work for you in your kennel today. See it now at
