Why is it a good idea to buy an air purifier?

Xiaomi air purifiers are a solution that will help you enjoy clean air on a daily basis. In smaller flats one device is enough to clean the air of all pollutants on a current basis.

The effectiveness of air purifiers is best observed in the response offered by your own body. Clear air means better sleep, healthy complexion and general wellbeing. These devices will help you combat allergies and minimise the risk of serious diseases  caused by smog.

How to use a Xiaomi air purifier?

If you want to make the most of your Xiaomi air purifier, follow a few basic rules while you use it. First of all, it’s important where you place the device. It should stand in the room where you spend the most time every day. In a bedsit it doesn’t matter, because the range of the device will cover the whole flat anyway. In larger flats, it’s best to put the air purifier in the living or sleeping room. You can also move it from one room to another during the day.

Another aspect of using an air purifier is proper ventilation and adjusting the performance of the device  to specific circumstances. Do your best to make sure the air purifier doesn’t have to work at full speed all the time. To this end, you should contain the pollution outside and open the windows at specific times to let in some fresh air. It’s best to to it during the day and at night – when houses are often heated – you’d better close the windows. Another good practice is to keep the device in the running mode – if you do, it will be working at low speed, which in turn reduces energy consumption and noise.

The maintenance of your Xiaomi device. Filters and cleaning

One of the key aspects of using a Xiaomi air purifier is replacing the filters. Filters should be replaced as often as the manufacturer specified in the operational manual. And don’t forget about the pre-filter, which usually cannot be replaced. It’s a plastic element of the case with a mesh. It’s enough to remove it and wash with running water – and it’s good to do it more or less once a week.

Carbon and HEPA filters can be vacuum cleaned once in every 2 – 4 weeks. The manufacturer recommends that the filter should be replaced at least twice a year. If you’re using a device that expels steam, you should also take proper care of the  water filters. If the water is hard, limescale deposits are quickly formed – they should be removed in order to eliminate the risk of unpleasant odour. To this end, you can use citric acid.

The maintenance of an air purifier with a humidifier

If you have a model with the humidifier, certain additional procedures will be necessary. In these devices water should be replaced regularly, while the reservoir and the tray should be cleaned. If these elements are maintained in a good condition, the evaporative filters will last longer. Remember that the air purifier is there to keep you healthy. It won’t perform its function if you let bacteria cultures develop inside. A dirty tray and reservoir will produce unpleasant smell.

If you’re using the humidifier function, it will probably use the whole content of the water reservoir on a single day. But if air humidity is on a proper level (e.g. in summer), it’s best to give up this option and empty the reservoir. This will help you avoid the problem of still water, which is a perfect environment for microbes.
