I am looking for odor reduction technologies for small rooms, especially
bathrooms but also kitchens for that matter. Although a vent may be among
the simplest under certain circumstances, it does not always do the trick.
I've considered a simple air purifier but I'm not altogether sure of their
effectiveness in odor control under these conditions.
Not yet, but I've been thinking about these. So far I haven't found anyone
that had an opinion on them, either way. Sharper Image likes to plug their
wall unit as the perfect solution for bathrooms and near the kitchen's oven
but I have to wonder if these things are as good at reducing odor as the
claims. I've no doubt they'll knock particles out in a heartbeat but odor
is slightly different.
No, this smell tends to be a lingering smell after certain activities. :)
(Bathroom & Kitchen -- especially bathroom.)
FWIW, we do have a musty smell that we need to deal with as well -- the
basement is a stone foundation and frequently leaks, sometimes badly. We're
kind of stuck on that one right now -- I recently had surgery and can't do
much for another couple of months (right as we hit the rainy season of
course). We'll be working on that through most of the spring though -- dry
creek bed for runoff, dry well, terracing with drains behind the walls, sump
pump, exterior foundation repairs, bleach solution wash and finally Sanitred
on the basement walls. That and re-siding the house are the last of the
major repairs to the home (knock on wood). In the interim I need to set up
an outlet in the basement and get the dehumidifier running again (I might
just run 2 down there).
