Bird dander is a natural part of the growth and development of any bird. And as long as you have a bird there will be dander. And most often it is the protein in the dander that trigger allergy and asthma flare ups.

Multiply the number of times you think your bird flaps or shakes each day by even as few as 20 particles of dander, and you can see that bird dander becomes an issue very quickly, particularly if dander is an allergen for you or someone in your family.

A bird dander air purifier is a non-invasive, proactive and safe way to keep the air clean for you and your bird. Here are 4 features to look for when deciding on an effective cleane for bird dander.

Opt for a HEPA air purifier. High efficiency particle arresting (or HEPA) air purifiers are designed to remove particles as small as .3 microns. By definition this type of filter must remove 99,997 out of every 10,000 airborne particles.

Dander ranges in size from 12-100 microns in size. By selecting a unit that has the capacity to remove particulates smaller than 12 microns, such as a HEPA air purifier, you will insure that the dander is effectively removed.

Look for 24 hour coverage. It is important to read the technical specifications of the unit to make sure that it can run safely and effectively 24 hours a day. This will eliminate the build up of dander that your bird is constantly shedding.

Choose an air purifier that is built to last. If you are to use your air purifier day in and day out to keep up with bird dander, the air purifier you choose should be constructed with all steel parts, have a baked on powder coat finish to prevent out gassing, and should have a substantial warranty of 5 years.

Keep purifier maintenance low. Choose a purifier that is low maintenance and will take care of itself. The last thing you want to have to do with your free time is filter maintenance. Choose an air purifier that requires only occasional filter changes, and has a filter changing process that is easily done.

Birds are a lovely addition to any space, but birds without the dander are even lovelier. Choosing a HEPA air purifier that can run dependably, that is made of steel, is well constructed, and has a substantial warranty will help you find the best air purifier for you, your family, and your bird.
