Some consumers swear that an Ionic Breeze air purifier will remove a percentage of household allergens. We were truly hoping it might also help to save huge amounts of money. As my sons grew into adolescence, the toxic inhumanity emanating from their bedrooms threatened to engulf the entire household in a swirling, bottomless pit of multifarious odor (I won’t name the components, as it’s all too scary, and the faint of heart would undoubtedly perish). I eventually quit fighting over gym socks and dirty dishes, and simply refused to go in there unless it was absolutely necessary; foolishly thinking we might survive if we could pretend the monsters growing under their beds were unreal.
Though it was nearly $ 200, a desktop Oreck air purifier sufficed for a time, and also slightly reduced the need to dust the living room as frequently. When Swamp Things began to claw their way out of the muck, and creep down the hallway, it promptly escalated to a them or us situation. At first, I thought the only solution to save ourselves would be to buy hazmat suits, and attach adjacent clean rooms to each of their bedroom doorways. Evidently, the price of technology hasn’t decreased across the board. I was then compelled to start a panicked search to find the finest air purifier money could buy; or, at minimum, one that both our noses, and our budget could withstand.
Consumer Reports air purifier buying guide reports that, owing to leaks in windows, and doors, the air in an ordinary home is replaced with outside air around every two hours. If that’s truly the case, then we were either living near an invisible cattle farm, filled with methane emissions and customary pies, or we had a serious problem with indoor air quality; I think it was the latter. Due to the air exchange, especially in older homes, Consumer Reports recommends that just reducing indoor pollutants may improve air quality a lot more than any purifier can.
In my view, there are an inordinate number of state, and federal laws that are excessively irrational, one of them being that I am required to provide my children with the basic necessities until they reach the age of eighteen; moreover, confining them to tents out of doors in bad weather is considered neglectful, and borderline abusive. This truly placed the entire family in an unjustly unbearable position. I have nothing against feeding the little darlings, however, the conditions perpetuated by their legally enforced presence prevented the reduction of pollutants, and hurled the entire family into a persisting state of uncontrollable gagging; and I do mean hurled. I’d be interested to know how government lawmakers can think people to provide children with the supposed “necessities” of a roof over their heads and then food in their mouths when there wasn’t a single family member capable of swallowing said food in tandem with a warm, safe place to sleep. In addition, government standards are available to regulate the quality, and safety of indoor air. If we couldn’t afford to build clean rooms, we definitely couldn’t afford to build a new house for our children. Ordinary government: Darned if you do, and darned if you don’t.
Some of the Consumer Reports “common sense” steps recommended prior to the purchase of an Ionic Breeze air purifier include frequent vacuuming, the reduction of tobacco smoke and use of candles, and the storage of chemicals outdoors. If we had any common sense we would have just forgone the headache of parenting, but we tried the steps anyhow with few results.
