Whether you’re new to owning a Dyson purifier or you’ve had one for a number of years, you’re probably clued into the benefits of protecting the air in your home. 

We’ve collated our top tips to help optimising your home set-up even further, protecting it from the likes of dust particles, allergens, pollen and VOCs. All with the help from our own in house scientists and research engineers. 


Start fresh

It's likely that there are already sources of air pollution in your home, so a thorough deep clean is a good place to start.

Don't forget to vacuum, book shelves and underneath furniture where dust can accumulate.

A purifier can help to remove dust and debris that becomes airborne during cleaning.


Keep outdoor pollutants out

Outdoor allergens like pollen and mould spores can travel into the home and become trapped inside.

Sealing doors and windows can stop them coming through and home supply shops sell inexpensive solutions for filling gaps and cracks in window and door frames.

Having a designated space in your entryway to remove footwear and outerwear before proceeding into your home can stop outside allergens coming in.

Once indoors, purifiers can help remove them from the air.


Monitor your indoor humidity

An ideal humidity level for indoor living is generally between 30% and 50%. Too much humidity can contribute to mould and bacteria growth, while too little can dry out skin and irritate your nose and throat.

Check the humidity level of your home and use a humidifier to adjust it. A sealed environment will help make this easier to control too.

Dyson's purifier humidifiers automatically monitor humidity levels and adjust accordingly.


Switch to natural alternatives

Home cleaning agents can be loaded with chemicals that continue to release toxins and volatile organic compounds after they've been used. Particular culprits are scented candles, perfumes and air fresheners.

Using natural alternatives or just plain water and basic soap for cleaning can help mitigate the impact on your air quality.


Ensure your kitchen is well ventilated

Unwelcome odours and gases, such as nitrogen dioxide, can be released into the air when cooking.

A good quality extractor fan can help to take cooking pollutants out of the home and Dyson purifiers are also designed to purify air contaminated by cooking.
