While my allergies are terrible, I also love my pets. We have a zoo going on here, with both cats and dogs living among us. We adore our fur-babies, but I'd be lying if I said that their fur and dander didn't cause me some pain. I deal with it because my animals are worth it to me.
Since we are in a multi-pet household, I am always looking for ways to improve our indoor air quality. I hate the way pets can smell, and I also don't like allergens floating around constantly invading my sinuses. There HAS to be a way for everyone to coexist peacefully. I have found that air purifiers have been a complete Godsend in my home.
And then something wonderful happened....I was introduced to the Venta Airwasher.
The Venta Airwasher is not your ordinary air purifier, folks. This one goes the extra mile. Rather than merely trapping particles in a filter and recycling the air back into your home, the Venta's filterless technology traps these particles and then washes the air before sending it back out. Yes. It literally washes the air.
Now I am no scientist, so take a look at this brief video that describes exactly how the Venta Airwasher works and why you need one in your home:
Here is a detailed product description, including features:
The LW45 Airwasher is the best large room humidifier and air purifier on the market, and has been engineered to capture more allergens and particulate matter than any other model, for areas up to 800 square feet. Our dual-action air washer system not only cleans the air, it adds the right level of moisture to it giving you and/or your coworkers top of the line humidifer and purifier benefits. As with all Venta Airwashers, there's no filter, eliminating any concern about hygiene or messy clean up. Developed with advanced German engineering, our air washers are used in homes and offices worldwide.

The best part? Maintenance is incredibly simple. Just add water daily. Think of it like watering your houseplants. Much like those ferns and ornamental grasses, your Venta Airwasher needs to be watered to thrive. No worries, there's no need to empty anything. Just add water.
However, it is recommended that you empty and clean your unit every 2 weeks. This is easy, too. Just rinse out the unit, add the included Water Treatment Additive, and fill it back up. There are no filters to mess with at all. NO FILTERS, PEOPLE! Can I get a collective "Hooray!"?
Should your Venta Airwasher need a more thorough cleaning, this is easy, too. You can wipe it down with some ordinary white vinegar, or you can pop these pieces into the dishwasher. (DO NOT PUT THE MOTOR IN THE DISHWASHER!) The Venta Airwasher is dishwasher safe, and she be washed without detergent on the lowest heat setting possible.
First, my allergies have greatly, greatly improved. I don't wake up and spend the first hour or so of my day sneezing, wheezing, and hacking. This is SUCH a difference, and my personal quality of life has greatly improved.
Next, the pet odors have gotten quite a bit better. With 6 cats and 2 dogs in the house, things can get pretty funkified at times. It's not pleasant. Not pleasant at all. Thanks to our Venta Airwasher, these odor causing particles get trapped, therefore reducing the amount of odor in the air we breathe.
Also, the Venta Airwasher is said to reduce static electricity. It's summer so this isn't an issue right now, but I thought it was worth pointing out. Since this product both purifies and humidifies, when winter comes, there will be a lot less zapping going on.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with my Venta experience so far. This product is definitely a must-have if you suffer from allergies or asthma, or if you have multiple pets like we do.
Venta Airwashers come in 3 sizes that will treat from 200-800 square feet. They include a 2 year warranty, too!
On the fence? Venta also offers a risk-free 14 day trial!
In addition to the Airwashers, you can also pick up some accessories and even fragrance-rich essential oils to try with your unit. (I can't WAIT to try these!)
