Best Air Purifier For Cat Allergens, Cat Litter Smell in 2023

Air purifiers for cat owners
Written by Clair Chesterman

If not all, many cat owners struggle with cleaning and controlling cat litter dust and smell. There are also air purifiers that might help people with cat allergies.

Fortunately, many air purifier developers and engineers utilize the latest technology to create and produce the proper and best air purifiers that could help with these unwanted situations. This advancement could be the best solution for you and your home to help with cat allergens, hair and pet odor pollutants.

Most air purifiers available in the market are not made for such specific purposes. TruSens True HEPA with Pet Filter and CritterZone Air Naturalizer are the only ones air purifiers designed explicitly for air-cleaning pollutants caused by cats, including allergens, pet dander, and odor from the litter box.

I highly recommend this air purifier since I’ve been using it for the past two years. We no longer have allergy symptoms within the years since we started using it.

Not all air purifiers for pets would work out as intended or advertised, specifically those that help keep up with cat litter dust and smell. But, they should still be able to kill the germs the loitered cat litter produces, and these air purifiers can ideally help protect you from cat litter allergens.

An air purifier should cover enough areas of your room or other parts of your house. We gathered the best 6 of the ones we have tried specifically designed to fight off unwanted cat litter dust and smell. Check them out below.

First, here’s a summary of the best 3:

Top 6 Best Air Purifier For Cat Litter Dust & Smell

1. TruSens True HEPA Pet Filter

TruSens Air Purifier for cat owners

TruSens True HEPA Pet Filter is an air purifier for cat hair that captures 99.97% of cat dander and odors. It features ultraviolet light (UV-C) to kill germs and bacteria trapped in the filter. Moreover, you can easily know when to change filters because of its filter replacement indicators.

My favorite about this air purifier is the all-in-one filtration system that combines True HEPA and activated carbon filters. Plus, it features a washable cotton pre-filter to handle large amounts of pet hair and eliminate common odors.

Many consumers even mentioned that TruSens True HEPA Pet Filter helped them to decrease cat allergies in their reviews.

TruSens is one of the best air purifiers I used. It has proprietary PureDirect technology that splits clean air into two streams. This feature efficiently supplies purified air to the entire room.

The product has undergone rigorous testing, proving that the bi-directional airflow delivers purified air more effectively than traditional vertical airflow air purifiers.
