Does the air purifier have an effect on formaldehyde emitted from furniture?

August 9, 2022

It's 2022. Many customers buy air purifiers only for the odor of the room. The odor includes the gaseous pollution volatilized from pets, old people, children, newly decorated houses, new furniture, etc., such as formaldehyde, TVOC, etc., or for the particulate pollution in the air, such as PM2.5 and smoke. Generally, the normal use of air purifiers can filter or absorb this harmful air pollution.


So does the air purifier on the market have an effect on the formaldehyde emitted by furniture?


For example, it is effective to install air purifiers in most newly decorated houses. The newly decorated rooms will contain harmful gaseous substances such as formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia. The air purifiers specially designed for gaseous pollution can purify these harmful gases, absorb or remove them by chemical reaction.


Most of the air purifiers remove formaldehyde by using the principle of physical removal by activated carbon adsorption, and there are also ways of chemical removal. In addition, air purifiers with physical and chemical combination also exist in the market, and the corresponding prices of each way are different, and the purification effect is different.


The method of purifying formaldehyde by activated carbon is a physical method. The purification effect is determined according to the type, quantity and performance of the purifier


However, it can be confirmed that the air purifier is effective against gaseous pollution such as formaldehyde.
