They look like high-tech smart speakers or designer coffee tables and come with grand claims they can purge rooms of harmful pollutants, allergens, bacteria, fungal spores and even the Covid virus. Air purifiers – which suck in a room’s air and filter it before pumping it back out – are must-haves for health-conscious consumers, it seems.
