What kind of UV air purifier do baby/child rooms need?

Pay more attention to the efficacy of disinfection: Sterilization and filtration are the two main functions of air purification equipment, each of which has different focus goals. The sterilization function is better at eliminating the threats of biological pollutants such as viruses and bacteria. And the filtering function more focuses on removing particulate pollutants such as dust, pollen, and hair. Usually, the products on the market have their certain function focus, so how to choose? If both parents do not have a family history of allergies or asthma, the child's risk of developing allergic diseases from particulate pollutants will be low, including allergic asthma, etc. But for all families, children are at high risk of infectious respiratory diseases due to bacteria or viruses, including flu, cold, etc. Therefore, in comparison, it is recommended that parents focus on the sterilization function first when choosing air purifiers for children's rooms. Then consider the need for the filtering function according to the respective family health history and residential environment.

Safety and human-machine coexistence: Children's ability to avoid risks is much lower than that of adults. Therefore, when choosing a baby room quiet air purifier, one must pay more attention to the using safety of products.  It is best to choose an air sterilizer that can coexist with humans while working so that you can use it more confidently.

Protection time: For children who are in the room for more than 18 hours a day, the air disinfection equipment their need is also required to have a longer protection time. It would be the best choice that the air sterilizer can continuously clean and sterilize the air all day long.

We hope that the above will help you choose the right air purification equipment for your children. Wish the children health.
