We all know that the primary function of an air purifier is to draw in air from the room its installed in, pass it through a series of inbuilt filters that are placed to remove particle and chemical pollutants, and then release the clean air back into the home. While many people know that using an air purifier can help them with allergens such as mould as well as pollens, what they don’t know is that using an air purifier can help to remove smoke from the air as well!!
