Air Filter
#1
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.
