Review: CritterZone Air Naturalizer

critterzone-air-naturalizer

I couldn’t have been more delighted when the folks at CritterZone approached me to see if I wanted to review their air naturalizer*. You see, I’ve owned two CritterZone units for more than seven years, and I use them frequently to successfully combat odors (and yes, they’re still working well after all that time.) Since then, CritterZone has made some improvements to their original unit, and I couldn’t wait to try it out.

What does the CritterZone Air Naturalizer do?

  • It creates a natural, charged flow that fills the room and continually cleans the air.
  • It makes energized versions of the natural elements already found in the air.
  • It works as a spot treatment to break down urine and other odors.
  • It breaks down pollutants and particles that cause odor.
  • It helps remove pathogens such as viruses, mold, and allergens from the air.
  • It does not generate ozone.

CritterZone features

The Critterzone is small! At less than 4.5 inches tall and 2 inches wide, this powerful little air naturalizer won’t take up much space. It’s actually a little hard to believe that such a small appliance can get so much done, but trust me, it does. The sleek design and white color blends easily with any decor. The unit comes with a 6 foot power cord which gives you lots of flexibility with placement.

Look Ma, no filters!

The best part: no filters! All you have to do to maintain the unit is to clean it occasionally by sweeping a cotton swab between the vents to remove the debris that can collect as the unit does its job.

Putting the CritterZone Air Naturalizer to the test

Since litter box odors aren’t an issue for us (I pretty much scoop as soon as Allegra deposits anything in the box!), my primary use is for cooking odors, and it works unbelievably fast. Even after sautéeing something fragrant like onions or frying fish, all it takes is a few minutes of running the CritterZone and any lingering odors disappear.

The unit does generate a very faint ozone odor, and I was concerned about that, but the manufacturer assured me that it’s less than what occurs in nature. It’s also a sign that it’s working.

Removes urine odor without a trace

I have used the older units on urine spills in the past. Ruby was a vertical pee-er and sometimes missed the box, and until I figured that out and got a box with higher sides, we had a couple of urine spills on carpet. It was pretty incredible how well it worked to clear up urine odor. You blot up the stain and then simply set the unit upside down on the remaining dampness for about an hour. Every time I did this, the odor was completely gone. CritterZone has detailed instructions on their website for older stains or stains that have soaked into padding and subflooring.

CritterZone Air Purifier Now Available as a Travel Pack

Critterzone_air_purifier

I’m a big fan of the CritterZone Air Purifier. This small, efficient unit really gets the job done, even on tough urine odors. And I speak from personal experience: Ruby, who is a vertical pee-er, managed to get some urine even over the very high edge of our litter box one time. The carpet around the box was soaked in urine. After blotting up the stain, I put the CritterZone on top of the stain upside down, as recommended on the CritterZone website. About an hour later, there was not a trace of urine smell left.

CritterZone Air Purifier Review: The Perfect Air Cleaner and Odor Eliminator

critterzone_air_purifier

When I first heard about the CritterZone on Hauspanther, I was intrigued. Kate Benjamin calls the air purifier and odor eliminator a “game changer. ” Kate has 12 cats of her own, and combating odors is something that she deals with on a daily basis, so I figured she knew what she was talking about. I wanted to learn more about this air cleaner, and contacted the company. When I received the two sample units they sent me, I couldn’t believe my eyes: they’re tiny!

The CritterZone Air Purifier is only 4.5″ tall by 2.75″ wide by 1.75″ deep. The wall plug in unit protrudes about an inch from the wall in the back of the unit.  The cord that comes with the corded unit protrudes less than .5 inch.

I have to admit, I was skeptical. Continue Reading

Review and giveaway: Oreck DualMax air purifier

oreck dual max air purifier review

I’m a big fan of Oreck vacuum cleaners. I don’t own one, but I seriously covet one. We had one at the veterinary practice I managed. It was used every day, multiple times a day, and it just kept on working. And it worked great, even on tough pet hair.

So when the folks at Oreck contacted me and asked whether I would like to review their newest air purifier, the DualMax™, I was happy to accept, since I already liked the brand. And when they asked whether I would like to do a giveaway of an air purifier for my readers, I was thrilled!

Why would you need an air purifier? From the Oreck website: “Did you know that every time you close your front door, you’re sealing yourself in with airborne dust and allergens? In fact, according to the EPA, the air inside your home may be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. And like Mother Nature, you have to move the air to clean the air. Oreck’s new air cleaner, The DualMax™ Air Purifier, has the power of a tower in a compact design to move and clean more air than ever before.”Continue Reading
