If there is one room in the house where it is nice to have fresh, clean air, it’s the bathroom. Over the course of day-to-day use, bathroom spaces tend to develop a less-than-pleasant odor, especially if they don’t have a great source of ventilation. One good way to deal with this problem is to add an air purifier to the equation. With this article, we’d like to offer some advice on how to best use a bathroom air purifier to get outstanding results.

Potential Benefits of a Bathroom Air Purifier
Before we dive into how you can go about picking an air purifier for your bathroom, let’s stop briefly and discuss what it is you stand to gain through this addition. Some of the appealing benefits of an air purifier in this space include –
- Cut down on mold spores. Since the bathroom is a moist environment, it is prime territory for mold spores to be in the air. Even if you don’t have any actual mold growth taking place, you still might have quite a bit of it floating in the air that you are breathing while in the restroom. Running an air purifier regularly can help to improve this situation.
- Help in absence of a fan. If your bathroom doesn’t have a fan, using an air purifier can serve as a suitable stand-in. It’s not quite the same as having a proper ventilation fan in the ceiling of the room, but it’s certainly better than just having the stagnant air hang around in there without moving at all.
- Wipe out bacteria. Running an air purifier regularly in your bathroom could help to eliminate bacteria and cut down on the chances of spreading illness between people in the house. This isn’t going to eliminate all shared germs in a home, of course, but any little step you can take in that direction will be beneficial.
It’s a Small Space
The first thing to consider about a bathroom air purifier is the pretty small space. Even if we are talking about a master bathroom with two sinks and a large shower, that room overall is still likely smaller than the bedrooms in the house. With that in mind, if you are shopping for a portable air purifier, select something of a suitable size for the bathroom where it will be used.
Not only does an air purifier for a bathroom not need to move a high volume of air, but it also can’t take up too much space. You’ll only have so much room where you can place it in the bathroom without having it get in your way, so take the form factor of anything you might purchase into consideration. There are plenty of models on the market designed for just this purpose, so you could pick one that would take up very little space and could freshen up the bathroom nicely.
Think Beyond the Bathroom
A small, portable air purifier might do a nice job in your bathroom, but it’s not going to do anything at all for the rest of your house. And, in some cases, the portable model you buy might not even do that well in the bathroom, meaning the whole project won’t have been worth much in the end.
So, what’s the solution? A whole-home air purifier installed by the team here at Walker. With a whole-home system, instead of a portable unit, you’ll purify the air in the entire house. We are proud to recommend Dynamic Air Quality Solutions products to our customers because of their excellent performance and reliable durability.
Find the Right Solution
Whatever your choice ends up being, finding a good air purifier is a big boost. You’ll enjoy the fresh smell of the cleaned air, and you may even have a reduction of some frustrating symptoms that stem from allergies or other health issues.
