Default Air Purifier

Hi guys,

with two budgies already living with me and in the future there's to be four, I'm looking into an air purifier as the birds are in my bedroom.

Is there anything I should look for or try and avoid when purchasing one?
I know some have a fragrance for the room and that's a no no for the budgies.

To help minimise the bird mess, I am cleaning their cage often (I put a sheet of paper down at night which remove in the morning and replace with fresh paper).
I hoover the floor everyday around their cage and I cover my bed with a throw to protect it from feathers and fluff.
I also keep the window open during the day when I'm working for fresh air, while the weather is still good.

Anyone have any top tips?

You want to be sure to get a HEPA air purifier when you choose one.

I have the Honeywell 50250 air purifier in my bedroom since I share the room with 2 budgies, 3 lovebirds and a sheltie
Itís a great product.

I vacuum the room at least once a day and usually twice.
I wipe the four cages down with white vinegar, and sweep up any pellet and/or seed hulls from the bottoms of the cages each morning.

When the air is dry in the winter, I also run a warm mist humidifier which helps make any stray dust particles heavier so they fall to the floor.

It is a bit noisy and I sometimes have to turn it off to hear the TV if all the birds are chirping at that time as well.

I have a little humidifier downstairs. I'll have to bring it back up.

I was looking at a couple on Amazon just not sure which might be better. I think possibly the HoMedics one?

PureMate PureMate
and
HoMedics HoMedics

I'm not really worried about noise. I sleep just as well in a room with a background noise as a silent one. I currently have a fish tank in my room as well and if I open my window, I have the pond to listen too instead.

I also got myself a new little hoover today so it'l be easier to clean more frequently. The only thing I have tricky is cleaning the bottom of the cage once I've pulled the trays out. It's a little bit awkward to get to and clean completely without removing the whole wire cage top every time.

I would do a lot of research before using an ioniser. I just would not use one in a home with birds.
However, I am enthusiastic about HEPA purifiers, still have my old Vornado.

Yes, that's why I was leaning towards the HoMedics one which doesn't mention an ioniser.

Are the air purifiers for your benefit or the birds?

I'll soon have 3 cute-pies in a relatively large room. Should I be thinking about this?

I have the budgies in my living room, but my 3 parrots are in my bedroom, and all I can say is thank goodness I have an air purifier ! The room is 11'x18' and I have a Honeywell HEPA either 050 or 060? It's a smaller one, but is supposed to be more than adequate for the square footage. Man that thing gets clogged with bird dust fast. It is still SO out of control dusty in here, and I don't even have the so called dustiest species! On dark furniture, I can clean then find a visible layer of it the next day . I love my boys, but the dust is really bad, air purifier or not.
