With most things in life, there's always room for improvement. The same can be said for the quality of your air. Whether you have allergies and you're looking to reduce the number of airborne allergies in your home or you just want to improve your living conditions, an air purifier could be for you. But where do you need it most? Follow this guide to deciding where you should keep an air purifier.

1. Your Bedroom
You likely spend a lot of time in your bedroom, so you'll want to make sure the conditions are as great as they can be. Keep an air purifier in here to keep allergens down to a minimum while you're in for the night. You can literally rest assured knowing you're pulling out all the stops to create a comfortable environment as you sleep.

2. The Office
In addition to the bedroom, the office is likely another place that takes up a lot of your time. Does your coworker wear too much perfume? Does another one have a cat whose dander accumulates on his clothes and irritates your sinuses? Using an air purifier at the office may be a helpful solution for you. Since you can't control many other aspects of the air in your office, you might as well keep a tabletop air purifier on your desk to reduce the number of allergens in the air as you work. 

3. Your Basement
The dark, damp environment of your basement is the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew, and that can be irritating for some people. Keep an air purifier down there to reduce the number of mold spores in the air that can cause you and others in your household discomfort. 

4. The Mudroom
When people first walk into your home, you don't want them to smell anything unpleasant. Running an air purifier can help neutralize odors and keep the room smelling fresh so guests aren't greeted with lingering smells from your dog or cat, leftover food or any other source of odor.

5. Your Bathroom
Steam from your shower and bath can produce mildew over time and, if you're not careful, mold can grow as well. Fortunately, there are a number of steps you can take to reduce your chances of nasty growth in this area. For starters, always run the fan while you bathe and maintain a regular cleaning schedule. You can also run an air purifier to reduce the amount of mold spores in the air.

6. The Laundry Room
There's nothing like the fresh, clean smell of laundry. However, that fresh fragrance isn't necessarily an indication of clean air. Like the basement and bathroom, this area of your home can be full of moisture and dampness which can produce mold if you're not careful. On top of your regular cleaning schedule, run an air purifier to reduce the number of airborne mold spores that you could be inhaling.
