The significance of implementing control strategies to prevent virus transmission is brought to light for households, offices, schools, and healthcare facilities after the pandemic.

Filtering airborne particles from indoor spaces with close human contact significantly reduces the risk of respiratory issues and skin infections that transmit through hand and contact contamination.  

Debates regarding the effectiveness of portable air purifiers have been doing rounds on the internet.

While some suggest that portable air purifiers ventilate the space and prevent airborne viruses and bacteria, others do not. Let’s weigh portable air cleaners on the basis of their pros and cons. 

Pros of Portable Air Purifiers

A portable air purifier means that you can ventilate any space and make it clean and hygienic without needing to purchase separate units for each room. It is an obvious benefit, but there are several others that make portable air purifiers stand out.  


Adaptable with no Installation Required 

Large air purifiers require complex installations; however, portable ones do not require installation, to begin with. Hence, they are adaptable and can be placed wherever and whenever you need them. 


If your room is smaller, a large air purifier can make it look more compact. In this case, investing in a portable air purifier is a great option because it allows you to save space and complement the size of the room. However, measure your room size and check the square footage rating of the air purifier before investing in one.  

Convenient Usage 

Portable air purifiers are the easiest to use because they don’t require an electric outlet to function unless you need to charge them. 

Cons of Portable Air Purifiers

There can be a downside to everything, and so does a portable air purifier. Let’s have a look at them.  

In some cases, many portable air purifiers on the market are not as efficient in eliminating pollutants because they can give 100% to a limited extent.

Euromate’s portable air purifiers, however, are all commercial grade and built for the highest efficiency.  

Inconvenient Positioning  

Yes, we did put convenience as an advantage, but they can be tricky to place in your room compared to mounting them to the ceiling.  Generally, for maximum efficiency they need to be placed in the center of the room, with doors and windows closed.

While it may not be a problem for house owners, it is a hassle for business owners because placing the equipment in the middle of a walkway of an office, gym or café may not be practical. 

The bottom line is that portable air purifiers are great. However, they are only effective when you choose them for the right room. Get in touch with our air quality experts today if you require guidance on whether investing in portable air purifiers is the right decision for your business.
