Here is the thing about mold – it’s everywhere. Indoor molds grow in any humid parts of the household, exposing you and your family to dangerous fungal spores – in the laundry room, in the bathroom, or the garage. It can grow in the pool area, in the kitchen, in air ducts or in damp carpets.

Some molds can cause inflammatory reactions, resulting in headaches, muscle and joint pain, fatigue and general weakness.

Usually, mold is easy to spot as you can see black, brown, green, pink or orange on your walls or smell a musty and earthy odor. If this is the case with your household, it is important to remove the mold and get a good air purifier to prevent mold growth and improve the air quality.

Airfree Onix 3000 Mobile Home Air Purifier Sanitizer Unit System

This is a real mold killer. The manufacturers of this air purifier promise that the Airfree Onix will incinerate 99.99% of all micro-organisms, including mold spores, fungus, bacteria and viruses at a high temperature of around 400F, living no living microorganism a chance to survive. Plus, the device supposedly does not contribute any heat to your household. The Airfree Onix will be effective in an area up to 550 square feet.

Honeywell HHT-011 Compact Air Purifier with Permanent HEPA Filter

This is a much cheaper air purifier, but it doesn’t mean that it is not good at doing its job. The Honeywell HHT-011 is silent and will get rid of 99% percent of mold spores, pet dander, pollen, smoke, and dust in your household. There is just one slight downside – it can effectively clean the air in a room  up to 85 square feet.


Airfree P1000 Home Air Purifier

This air cleaner is much like the Airfree Onix 3000, and has the advantage of costing almost a hundred bucks less. It will also incinerate all living microorganisms for you and completely get rid of mold and fungal spores. It also features a blue light which can be used as a night-lamp or be turned off. And haven’t we said? The Airfree P1000 Home Air Purifier is completely silent, making you wonder whether it functions at all (which it does, of course).
