I have always sensed that the air quality in my home was not the best and as a mom, I want to ensure that the air my family breathes is the cleanest. This year has been the worst time dealing with allergies and it has been quite a battle. Couple that with a few indoor pollutants and you can find yourself VERY irritated.
I’m a stay at home mome and I keep a very well kept home, but there are some things you just can’t clean….or can you? You all have heard of Oreck, right? Well Oreck is one of the premier makers of some of the most fantastic products for the home. One in particular is the Oreck ProShield Plus Air Purifier. I have been wanting to give one of these a try for the longest, so imagine my excitement when I was offered the opportunity to give it a try. It was my hopes that the Proshield would make a difference in our homes air quality. It’s has been a rough summer… especially for my kids so I was hoping this would give them some relief.
For about a month now, we have been using the Oreck Proshield Plus in full force and I have noticed a tremendous difference. There is just a sense of ‘clean” when I walk into the room and it’s a whole lot “fresher”. Sort of like outdoor fresh…just CLEAN. FRESH. CRISP AIR. Kudos to the permanent Odor Absorber, which is activated by internal ultraviolet lights.
The Proshield is also very quiet when set on the lowest setting. You have to really listen to hear it and know it’s on. I love the fact that it continually cleans and recirculates the air every two hours, destroys the air allergens, and returns refreshed air to the room. That is quite reassuring knowing that me and my family is breathing much cleaner and fresher air in a healthier environment. Even better, the Truman Cell permanent filter never needs to be replaced.
The design is also quite nice. I really like the nice sleek design which allows it to stand up or lay horizontally. It doesn’t take up too much space and fits perfectly with our décor. It even has a blue light that glows and acts as a night light.
For convenience, the ProShield also comes with a remote so you can control it from across the room and with the three different settings you can choose the setting of your choice. From time to time you may hear an occasional “zap” and that is fine. That is a good inclination that the purifier is working and zapping those nasty particles. If you suffer from allergies or asthma I would definitely recommend Oreck ProShield Plus Air Purifier. It would help you breath and sleep a whole lot better.
