You’ve set up their new crib, arranged the toys and racks in their playroom, and even baby-proofed everything around your house — but what else does your child need to grow up happy and safe?
If you haven’t gotten one yet, you might want to consider getting an air purifier for your child’s room. The air they breathe in is very important for their comfort and health, and these devices can help improve air quality. And, to help you pick the right one for your family, we’ve prepared a list of the best air purifiers for babies and kids — read on!
Are air purifiers safe for babies and kids?
But first, the most important question has to be answered: are these devices safe for your children? As a parent, it’s understandable that you have some reservations about putting anything new into your home. Many appliances that we once thought of as safe, such as space heaters, were potential hazards for our babies! Being cautious about choosing an air purifier is reasonable.
So you’ll be happy to learn that air purifiers are 100% safe for your babies and kids — even newborns can be around the appliance and reap all the health benefits it offers. They’re perfectly fine to use as long as you pick the right type of air purifier. The safest forms of air purifier for children to use are a Medical-Grade HEPA filter, which is the most effective at removing airborne pollutants.
Why clean air is essential to your children’s health
Now that you know that these appliances are safe, the question might be why it’s so important to consider them in the first place. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to add these devices to your home, consider this: most homes have allergens, dust, bacteria, viruses, and mold spores floating around inside.
Your child has a weaker immune system than you do, so they will likely have an allergic reaction to things like pet dander, pollen, and dust mites. It’s also a possibility that they can get sick from all the dust, bacteria, germs, and mold in your home.
With an air purifier, you trap most (if not all) of these pathogens circulating in the air — protecting your child and guaranteeing that they stay symptom-free! In just a few hours of using these appliances, you’ll see a noticeable difference in their health and comfort.
That said, let’s get into the best air purifier for your babies and kids.
UV Care Desk Air Purifier
One of the smaller air purifiers in our catalog, the UV Care’s Desk Air Purifier is designed to be compact, discrete, and powerful — so you can place it anywhere your child needs! You can place it in the nursery or bedroom, their playroom, or the living room. And, because it’s lightweight, you can move it around to follow your children as they go about their day!
And, as we said, it’s a powerful device despite its small frame, thanks to us using the same technology you can find in our bigger air purifiers. It comes with an H13 HEPA filter, superior UV-C lamps, and our ViruX® Technology — all of these components work together to deal with up to 99.998% of all pathogens that are 0.1 microns small! In simpler terms, this means that any allergens, viruses, germs, and other pollutants that can make your child sick are trapped and neutralized by this handy air purifier.
UV Care 8-Stage Air Purifier
For bigger rooms, you might want to opt for one of our larger models. The 8-Stage Air Purifier is designed to be glossy, sleek, and still compact despite its larger size. This means this appliance can fit seamlessly in any room! And, it’s relatively light, so you can still transfer it on an as-need basis.
From its name, you probably already have an idea of how thorough this device is — it cycles your indoor air through an 8-stage cleaning process to ensure that what comes out is completely sanitized, and safe for you and your family to breathe in. Here’s how it works:
It starts with the Washable Elementary Aluminum Pre-Filter. The first line of defense traps any large pollutants, including hair, dirt, dust, and the like. Next, it passes through the Medical-Grade H14 HEPA Filter — proven to trap at least 99.998% of finer pollutants, such as bacteria, germs, dander, and even viruses. It also goes through an Activated Carbon Filter, which removes any strong odor or smoke in the air. At the same time, air passes through a Molecular Sieve Adsorption Layer, which prevents any larger pollutants from passing through the device. This is done to help increase the lifespan of the Activated Carbon Filter.
A Photocatalyst Filter is also used to break down any toxic compounds in the air. This is done to eradicate compounds like ammonia and other volatile organic compounds (VOC). The air also passes under our powerful UV-C lamps, which zap up to 99.9% of germs, viruses, and bacteria that may cause illnesses like the flu, tuberculosis, and the like.
While this is happening, our air purifier releases a stream of negative ions, which attach and weigh down the remaining airborne pathogens, effectively neutralizing them.
Finally, and one of the key features of this unit, is the humidifier. A humidifier can help moisturize the air, which might help reduce certain symptoms your little one might be experiencing, such as congestion or a sore throat. Moreover, since a humidifier adds moisture into dry air, it also helps relieve your baby of irritated, dry skin.
Clear the air of any harmful allergens, pollutants, and particles — and help your little one breathe easy with our best air purifiers for babies and kids! Each of these devices from UV care meets stringent medical-grade standards and is proven to improve your air quality and protect you from even the tiniest pollutants. Contact us today to learn more!
