Hello

I am in the process of looking for new space and the one question I keep getting is about odor. I only do natural nails but I know if there are an y super sensitive people in the space they will probably complain. My potential new space does not have windows and is in an office building. Any recommendations on air filters? I want a quality one but also don't want to overspend as it is just me in a 300 sq foot space only doing natural nails.

Thanks!

The Filtronic unit I wrote about is I think the best looking and it's beautifully built. But I don't believe they sell in the US unfortunately. But both the other filter have real 3-stage filters and will do the job you want. Be aware that with filters size does matter - you need a lot of active carbon in the final filter to catch the chemical fumes and have a strong enough air flow to pick up dust - especially when using e-file. Also you don't want to have to replace the filter every day or week.

I just received my Loraco Chemstop Air Cleaner yesterday. It's small so it will fit on your station. I wanted something small, quiet and inexpensive. It was approximately $65.00. I will be using it for the first time tomorrow and will let you know how I like it.

Hi Chrissy,

Thanks for the information, that price sounds great as opposed to hundreds of dollars. Excited to hear how you like it!

Thanks!

Thanks Iryna,

I liked the article and will check them out but have a feeling they may be overkill for what I need. Thanks for the input!

Hi Audra!

I didn't forget about you! I haven't used my filter yet as I have been doing lots of gel manis and pedis. I'm actually going to be doing my nails tomorrow morning so as soon as I finish I will let you know how it works!

Audra,

I love the Loraco air filter! It's small, quiet and it has very low vibration....you can't even tell it's on actually. I was doing a fill-in (I do nails in my home) and it really absorbed the monomer fumes. I was so surprised that it absorbed them as much as it did to be such a small unit. Definitely worth the investment. I am very happy with this purchase!

Chrissy,

Thanks so much for letting me know! That is one of my big concerns is the noise/vibration along with how well it works. Can't wait to order one.

Thanks again!

Hi,

I'm from Guyana, its in South America close to Brazil. I've been a registered nail tech 5yrs now & I too work from my home. If it wasnt for reading your post, i would never have known about the Luraco. Currently im unable to work because I have bronchitis, i hardly wore my respirator when working but i know better now.

I ordered a Luraco device yesterday & I cant wait to use it, its a custom here that most techs here work in poorly ventilated work areas.

Knowing is better, thanks ladies.
does the luraco absorbs the dust as well?
Thanks for sharing! Might have to invest in one myself.
