Dog Daycare Air Cleaner 7 Features That Make It Effective
"A good dog daycare can relieve stress for owners' and their beloved animals. One of the most important and lasting impressions is the way your facility smells. Keeping the air consistently fresh can be done effectively with the right cleaner. Here are the 7 best features it can have.
Carbon Filter---This chemical element is well known for its ability to absorb gaseous pollutants such as odors and airborne chemicals. And in a facility for dogs this is a crucial filter to have. There are all types of odors that can keep the air from smelling fresh including the smell that some animals emit when they are frightened and/or anxious about being in a new place and away from their owners.
That salty dog smell and the smell of breath that only its owner could love being sent into the air from numerous dogs can make the air smell unclean. And every owner wants to think of their pooch in a place that is almost as nice as home.
Additive For Ammonia---Even though carbon is effective with most odors, urine is incredibly potent and even carbon needs help filtering this odor from the air. An Ammonasorb additive is crucial if this filter is to remove the ammonia that urine emits. Without this additive, the carbon is not as effective and the filter will probably not last as long.
Split Capacitor Motor---This type of motor is designed for continuous and long life duty with high revolutions per minute. The benefit to you is that it can run continuously, safely, and effectively sending 250 cubic feet of fresh air into your facility every 60 seconds.
It is crucial that any cleaner be able to run all the time. Accidents happen. And if it is not all cleared away traces of urine can really ruin air quality. Having it run all night means your staff and customers are more likely to open the doors to air that is fresh and inviting each morning.
Filter For Particles---Dog hair, fur, and dander are a big part of caring for dogs. Whereas dog hair and fur can be seen, dander is invisible to the human eye. Airborne bacteria and viruses can spread disease quickly and generally attach to various sized particles.
Having a cleaner that has large and medium particle pre-filters allows the bigger particulates to be trapped by cheaper filters that are the filters through which pollutants are pulled first. This saves the filter with minute openings for particles that are microscopic in size.
HEPA Filtration---A high efficiency particle arresting filter must be able to remove 99.97% of airborne particles that are .3 microns in size or greater. The benefit to you is that out of every 10,000 airborne particulates it removes 99,997 of them.
Steel Casing---Dogs can get pretty curious with their teeth and paws. You need a case that can stand up to that curiosity. Steel is also ideal to house a split capacitor motor that is designed to run 24 hours a day. This is because the motor heat will not cause steel to off-gas noxious chemicals as some plastic cases do.
Wheels---Most cleaners work by cleaning the air that is closest to it first. So if there is a problem in one room or one side of the facility, having wheels that can help you move the cleaner easily is a huge advantage. And the fact that a cleaner is portable means that you can have fresh air wherever there is an outlet for it to plug into."
