We all breath. Well, if you are a healthy individual you do.
Breathing is something natural that our bodies do. We don’t even realize we are doing it. It just happens.
I’m pretty sure most of us don’t give much thought to what we are breathing in either. Yes, we do breath air, but what else is in the air?
You can usually tell if something bad is in the air when you smell something (like paint fumes, burnt toast or wet dog). But what about when the air you breath seems clean and fresh? How clean is it REALLY?
I have reviewed many air purifiers in hopes of relieving our asthmatic cats allergen triggers, and to make the air my family breaths a bit cleaner. The only problem is I can’t actually SEE if they are doing what they are supposed to do. I am not a scientist and I don’t have any high tech equipment to but the units to the test.
A few months ago I was sent to review a product called Air Angel. Air Angel is a compact, mobile air “cleaner” that helps to destroy up to 99% of allergens, odors and germs in the room. Air Angel is by the brand Air Oasis.
I am all for cleaning the air we breath. I am also desperate to find out what triggers our cats asthma attacks so that I can help relieve them.
When I received the Air Angel to review I also received two test kits. Each kit was to test the air that we breath before and after using the Air Angel.
The tests were easy to do. Simply pour a special solution in a petri dish, leave it out for the recommended time, then close it up, date it and put it away some place where it can be undisturbed for a few days.
I wasn’t expecting much, that is until I saw the results. I was HORRIFIED! I don’t know what I was looking at in the petri dish. It resemble and alien forest with fuzzy white things and dark blobs.
Ewww!!!! What are we breathing?
I did this test in my kitchen. My kitchen and bathroom are usually the cleanest rooms in our home because I am constantly cleaning them. How is it that this mold and whatever it is showed up in the air? I am MORTIFIED!
I used the Air Angel as directed in the kitchen for the recommended amount of time and did the test again. To my surprise the second air quality test (done after using the Air Angel) produced stunning results. While there were a few specs here and there in the petri dish it looked nothing like the pre-Air Angel test.
AMAZING! Even my husband said we need to get an Air Angel for every room in our home because of what he saw when we compared the results of both tests.
How is this stuff in the air we breath? We don’t see it. We can’t taste it. Not to mention how long have we been breathing this stuff in? My kids and our pets too.
If I didn’t see the results for myself I would have never believed it. I appreciate that Air Oasis sent along the two tests kits for me to see for myself. Seeing truly is believing.
The Air Angel is a portable unit that you can take with you when you travel (imagine what you are breathing in at hotels?). The device can clean the air up to 250 square feet which would be about the size of a common nursery, bedroom, playroom and hotel room. There is even an adapter (included) that allows you to use the Air Angel in the car.
Air Angel’s cutting-edge technology helps protect against germs, viruses, allergens, and harmful pollutants in the air and on surfaces around them.
According to the brand’s website;
The Air Angel works by utilizing the AHPCO (advanced hydrated photocatalytic oxidation) technology developed by NASA and enhanced by our Air Oasis research and development team, including Dr. Jeff Bennert, Jon Bennert, and Dr. Nabarun Ghosh.
The AHPCO technology works by destroying germs as they pass through UV light. The light rays then react with the AHPCO catalyst to produce catalytic molecules, which seek out and destroy odor-causing carbon-based molecules. These molecules are then converted into carbon dioxide and water-replacing harmful allergens in the atmosphere with fresh, clean air.
You can’t see this happening. All you see are the unit and a few lights to let you know it’s working and doing it’s job.
For the most part Air Angel is silent. You can hear a bit of whooshing air when it’s on high, but it’s more of a “white noise.” I barely ever notice it.
The Air Angel has three settings – Low, Medium and High. I keep ours on medium usually.
There was no set up to speak of. Just remove the unit from it’s packaging and plug it in. That’s it! You can easily move it from room to room too. It’s also small enough to put on your desk at work.
Honestly, the only downside would be the price. Air Angel sells for $249.99 on the Air Oasis website. Although I’m convinced it’s worth ever penny, it might not be as “budget friendly” for others (myself included).
Air Oasis does sell larger units (one that covers up to 3,000 square feet). I’m going to save up to try and buy a bigger unit so that I know our entire home is full with clean air and not just the kitchen.
