Do you know the definition of irony? Here’s an example. I was working with a client that uses an air purifier in the bedroom because of allergies. Since there is an air purifier to help relieve allergies, you would assume that the client would dust and vacuum on a regular basis. But, that wasn’t the case. So, let’s work backward here. There was dust on all the surfaces, dust bunnies on the closet floor, and I don’t know how long it had been since anyone cleaned under the bed. Why not clean to help eliminate allergens from the environment so you either don’t need the air purifier, or so the air purifier doesn’t have to work so hard? A clean environment in conjunction with a purifier seems ideal.
