Pet Dander & Winix Air Purifiers

Pet Dander Winix Post

Hi there folks. We’ve recently been looking after our son’s lovely dog, Lexie (pictured) and can tell you that our Zero+ PRO 5 stage air purifier has certainly been doing it’s job of keeping that excess hair and dander at bay during the stay!

Coincidentally, we just happened to come across the excellent below article from our friends at Winix America, all about the effects of pet dander and just how Winix Air Purifiers can help. We know that it sure has for us! Please give it a read and as always, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions at all!

The Surprising Effects Pet Dander has on Your Health

Blog Winix-Pet-Dander-for-Health

Pets are part of the family and though they may not cause your allergies to flare up, our beloved fury and feathered friends can cause problems through their dander. Problems range from rapid dust collection on furniture and carpet inside your home to the development of unwanted health effects. Just like us, you love your animals and dander related struggles can be offset and reduced with the use of an air purifier.

So, what is pet dander, anyway? According to the American Lung Association, “Pet dander is composed of tiny, even microscopic, flecks of skin shed by cats, dogs, rodents, birds and other animals with fur or feathers.” Additionally, pet dander can contain urine and feacal particles.

While pet hair and dandruff is visible to the human eye, airborne pet dander is at a microscopic level in size and is often suspended in your air. Inhaling such particles, even when not allergic, can cause inflammation of the sinuses and nasal membranes. This is often dismissed as a weather induced side effect, early onset of a cold, or a slight sinus headache.

Fortunately, there’s no need to keep your fur-family members at a distance. The first step in reducing the accumulation of dander in your home and keeping yourself feeling healthy is with the right air purifier. Using an air purifier with a True HEPA filtration system efficiently removes and reduces the presence of pet dander. While the Winix ‘Hospital-Grade’ True HEPA filter captures 99.97% of airborne pet dander and particles as small as 0.3 microns in size, Winix went one step further in creating the Zero+ PRO 5 stage air purifier; a pet specific model equipped with a Dedicated Pet Filter. This Winix specific filter is your first line of defence against pet hair, dander, and larger visible particles. Furthermore, all Winix Australian models have high efficiency deodorised carbon filters that help trap odour.

With its robust 5-stage air purification system and specialised Dedicated Pet Filter, the Zero+ PRO air purifier allows you to enjoy all the benefits of your fur or feathered family members. This unit brings better quality air for all to enjoy and keeps you, your family, and pets happy!

What is Winix PlasmaWave?

What-is-PlasmaWave Header

We all know that PlasmaWave® is Winix' unique air purification technology that neutralizes pollutants in our air. But sometimes we get asked for a bit more detail on just what this is and how it works. So we decided to put together this article to properly explain PlasmaWave® for you.

What Is It?

PlasmaWave® is the final step in our Winix Australian range of air purifiers' comprehensive filtration systems. This unique Winix technology neutralises viruses, bacteria, odours and VOCs (chemical vapours and harmful gases). It does this by creating negative and positive ions that combine with water vapour molecules in the air to form hydroxyls that neutralise these nasties – leaving only clean, fresh air.

How Does It Work?
  1. PlasmaWave® technology creates a short electrical discharge to create dual polarity ions from air moisture. This electrical discharge is safe and only occurs for a short period of time (nanoseconds).

  2. Positive hydrogen (H+) and negative oxygen ions (-O2) attach themselves to the surface of air pollutants to form Hydroxyls by removing hydrogen from the structure of air.

  3. This interaction removes air pollutants and allows the ions to use the missing Hydrogen ion, which was removed from the structure of the air pollutants, to return as air moisture (H2O).

PlasmaWave® technology mimics the natural process of pollutant breakdown that happens in the earth's atmosphere. The main advantage of PlasmaWave® technology and hydroxyl oxidation is that pollutants are reduced to harmless substances like water and carbon dioxide within the air purifier itself. PlasmaWave® is the core air filtration element of any Winix air purifier and this technology is effective against many types of airborne contaminants.

Independent testing for PlasmaWave® using live influenza (flu) virus confirmed 99.96% of this virus was neutralised within 60 mins.

What Are The Benefits Over Other Technologies?

PlasmaWave® Technology can sometimes be incorrectly mislabelled as an “Ionizer” or confused with negative ion generation technology. Winix' technology is far superior because it produces both positive and negative ions while ionizers only produce negative ions.

Negative ion air purifiers do not eliminate air pollutants. Instead, negative ions force contaminant particles to group together so they are weighed down onto the surface of furniture and floors. Everyday activities such as walking or vacuuming can then reintroduce these contaminants by helping them become airborne once again.

Our Winix PlasmaWave® technology effectively neutralizes/reduces the concentration of these airborne pollutants, giving you complete peace of mind. PlasmaWave also removes chemical pollutants like Methane and Carbon Monoxide. Air Ionizers can only remove particulate pollutants like dust, aerosols, pollen and dust mites.

Is It Safe?

In short, yes; Winix' PlasmaWave® technology does not produce harmful levels of ozone. Independent tests confirm the ozone produced is an almost undetectable 0.03 ppb (parts per billion), which is substantially lower than the allowable level of 50ppb set by the USA’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Plasmawave® also meets the California Air Resource Board’s AB 2276 standard, which is the most rigorous American certification benchmark for indoor air cleaning ozone-emissions. To attain compliance, air-cleaning devices must be tested for electrical safety and have ozone emission ratings below the 50 parts per billion limit.

Please note that if desired, the PlasmaWave® function on Winix' Australian range of air purifiers can also be turned off at the user's discretion.

Video Explanation

Here are a couple of 'oldie but goodie' Winix videos that we feel do a great job of explaining PlasmaWave® for you in video form:



In summary, Winix' PlasmaWave® technology is a safe and very effective means of neutralising common airborne contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, odours and VOCs (chemical vapours and harmful gases).

indoor water-damage dehumidifier drying guide

StayDrySydney

Sydney has copped a serious amount of rain today with flooding in many areas. It can be heartbreaking for anyone to wake up to some form of flooding, even smaller amounts of water damage in your home can really get you down. If you've experienced non-major water damage to floors, carpet or even in your car then we're happy to offer some handy tips to dry it right out.

IndoorWaterDamage DehumidifierDryingGuide

Indoor Water-Damage Dehumidifier Drying Guide

A quality dehumidifier is an excellent aid in actively removing moisture from a room (up to 50 litres per day). Dehumidifiers are especially great at drying deep, embedded moisture. For example, in addition to being excellent at drying carpets, if you have water-logged wooden floors or skirting boards, a dehumidifier can pull that moisture right out of the wood.

Here are some handy tips to dry those damp or water-logged areas most effectively with your dehumidifier.

Timing: Time can be of the essence in these situations, as mould can start to grow within 48 to 72 hours in moist or water-logged materials. So try to act as fast as possible, (while keeping safe).

Quick Tips:
1. Use towels to soak up any excess water. If the carpet is damp, then fold the towel over a few times and stand on it to draw the water up (preferably use a white towel as you don’t want the dye from a new coloured towel to 'bleed' into the carpet). Keep doing this until you can't get any more water out. You will be surprised even how dry the top of the carpet feels after doing this.

2. Place your dehumidifier into the room, close all windows and doors and turn the dehumidifier on to the lowest humidity setting (30% is preferable). If you have any fans, make sure to turn these on too. Air circulating in the room with the dehumidifier running will speed up the drying process.

3. Depending on the situation, it may take anywhere from 24 hours to a matter of days running your dehumidifier continuously to dry everything properly. (Remember to keep your doors and windows closed during this drying process.)

Important note: this guide is intended for minor water damage only, (not major flooding). If in doubt call a professional.
