The Filtrete air purifier has an electrostatically charged filter specially designed for capturing large, airborne allergens like pollen, mould spores and dust mite debris. The fibres within the filter are charged to act like tiny magnets that attract and capture small particles. The unit also captures dust, bacteria, smoke, smog and virus carrying particles.

Many particles are invisible to the naked eye and can lurk in the air for a long time. These microscopic particles can be a small as 0.3 microns and smaller. (In comparison, a human hair is about 50 microns). The particles in the air you breathe isn’t just dust, it could also include common allergens such as: Pollen, plant and mould spores, pet dander, smoke, and dust mite debris.
