According to the published reports, the cause of allergies is complicated. In general, there are two major methods to prevent allergies: environment purification and non-allergenic diet. iBreeze products could be applied for purifying indoor environment, reducing the air pollutants and surface contaminants, like mold smell and spread of molds. There are many practical cases which significantly improved allergy symptoms with the doctor’s prescription and 24-hour operation of the iBreeze purifiers.
The iBreeze purifier can reduce dust mite reproduction by removing mold spores and cut off the food chains of young dust mite. iBreeze products perform anti-microbial effect but dust mites are insects, not microbes. In general, insecticides can directly eliminate insects but they must be used carefully at home.
No. iBreeze applies the photoioncatalysis technology. It integrates photolysis, ionization and catalysis effects. Photocatalytic material is one of major components but not the only. In general, photocatalysis effect would decrease while the humidity increases. The iBreeze ionizes humid air to generate active agents, and there active agents would enhance photocatalysis effect even at high humidity. It is more like an advanced oxidation process instead photocatalysis.
Actually, you cannot smell it except you are very close to the iBreeze product, the light smell just like you are in a forest after raining.A proper model of iBreeze products can fit your room according to the user instruction states.
The active agents include ozone, hydrogen peroxide, negative oxygen ion, and so on. The smell is mixed by these active agents, not only ozone. If you are close to iBreeze, you may smell the ozone because the odor threshold low concentration of ozone is only 0.003 ppm. As long as the iBreeze applied in its applicable space, it is definitely safe and the average accumulated ozone concentration is lower than 0.06 ppm. Of course, you can open the window or door to decrease the odor if you don't like it.
