Won’t a carbon filter eliminate odors?
Yes and no. One of our primary goals at Blue Air Products is to provide a 100% solution to eliminating grow room odors. Indoor garden odor comes from a number of sources – VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) and bacteria being the most prevalent. Carbon filters can only filter a certain percentage and type of VOC’s. Odor causing bacteria can be so small that it requires a high powered microscope to view. Many of the bacteria are so small that filters alone cannot remove all of it from the air. The good news is that the BIG BLUE can kill the bacteria outright and cause the VOC’s to break down, thereby negating their effects.
