Why does my Ionic Breeze smell?

There is only one "bad smell" that is directly produced by an ionic purifier, and that is ozone. Another reason that smells may seem concentrated is that the charged particles of some gasses align more effectively, and clump together which makes them heavier than air.

Also know, are Ionic Breeze air purifiers harmful?

Most ionic air purifiers (ionizers) are completely safe and not bad for your health. They emit negative ions into the air as a way to clean it which is harmless to you. They're often confused with ozone generators which emit high levels of ozone that can be bad for health.

Secondly, how do you clean an Ionic Breeze? Rinse the Ionic Breeze blades to remove particles before resetting the unit.

  1. Turn off and unplug the Ionic Breeze air purifier.
  2. Remove the blades by pulling up the panel at the top of the Ionic Breeze unit.
  3. Wipe the blades clean with a clean, soft cloth, barely damp with a warm soap-and-water solution, such as 1/2 tsp.

Beside above, why does an ionizer smell?

Putting it succinctly: ionizers do not directly control odors; however, one possible side effect of producing ions is the control of some odors, but possibly in away that is harmful to your health. Moreover, odors are caused by molecules of gaseous pollutants in the air, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Do Ionic Breeze air purifiers work?

Except for a few models that use fans to help suck in the charged particles, most ionic air purifiers work silently. (Ionic purifiers shouldn't be confused with ozone generators that are marketed as “air cleaners.” By design, these devices can release 50 to 200 milligrams of ozone per hour.)
