Absolutely. Brio's powerful fan draws suspended dust and invisible fine and ultrafine particles into the APART Collection Cartridge without clogging a filter. In our lab testing, Brio removed two to four times more dust than the competitive HEPA air purifiers tested, and still retained 90% of it's original effectiveness, while the tested HEPA purifiers dropped to 50%! What that means for you is ongoing effectiveness between filter changes and a lot fewer filter changes. Keep in mind that heavier, visible dust may fall to the ground and won't be drawn into Brio's air purification chamber. For heavier dust that has landed on surfaces, you'll still need a vacuum (Brio works wonders, but it's not magic).

I have a mold allergy. Will Brio help?
A Brio Air Purifier can help with your mold problem, by removing mold spores from the air. Mold occurs in nature, and indoors, it exists where it has food (organic material) and water or moisture to grow. Solving the moisture problem is the most important step in mold remediation. Brio can help prevent the spread of mold. Mold spreads through microscopic, airborne particles, and these mold spores can cause respiratory issues and other problems. Brio removes these fine mold spores from the air quickly and easily. So yes, Brio can help!
Does Brio remove wildfire smoke particles?
Yes, Brio can help. Fine wildfire smoke particles may be as small as 0.4-0.7 microns. Independent testing shows that Brio’s APART particle removal effectively traps particles in this size range ( and smaller) including wildfire smoke. And because Brio stays at peak performance between cartridge changes (no clogging!), You can be confident smoke particles are being removed effectively. Because of the high volume of particles in the air during a forest or wildfire event, Brio's long lasting particle collection cartridge makes a big difference in the time annd money spent replacing filters.
Can Brio remove viruses including COVID-19?
The short answer is yes. For an air cleaner to reduce viruses in the air, it must be able to remove small airborne particles (in the size range of 0.1-0.5 microns).
In independent lab tests, Brio’s APART technology effectively removes airborne particles including COVID-19 surrogate, in this size range, in 15 minutes.
It is important to note, however, that reducing virus particles is just one part of protection plan, as explained by the EPA:
“When used properly, air purifiers can help reduce airborne contaminants including viruses in a home or confined space. However, by itself, a portable air cleaner is not enough to protect people from COVID-19. When used along with other best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, operating an air cleaner can be part of a plan to protect yourself and your family.”
Will Brio help with my allergies?
Fine particles too small to see—dust and dust mite waste, pollen, smoke, germs, and mold—can enter the upper respiratory tract and may worsen allergy symptoms. Ultrafine particles can penetrate further into the respiratory system, making their way into the lungs where they can cause inflammation.
While we can’t provide medical advice, we can tell you that effective air purification is frequently recommended by medical professionals for allergy sufferers.
Brio’s innovative APART (tm) technology is highly effective at removing fine and ultra-fine particles from indoor air. Because Brio doesn't clog, there's no drop off in air flow between filter changes and clean airflow is the key to better indoor air.
What size room will Brio clean?
Every situation is different and the answer depends on how many air changes per hour (ACH) you need, which in turn depends on the air quality in your home. Keep in mind the higher the ACH, the faster the air will circulate through the air purifier, removing particle pollutants. This table should help you determine the best room size based on your conditions.
How long with Brio's APART collection cartridge last?
Brio’s APART technology draws particles out of the airflow, so there’s nothing to clog or slow the clean air delivery rate. And the APART Collection Cartridge is designed to hold a high volume of particles. Together these features add up to a long cartridge life. Your actual environmental conditions and use will determine how often it needs replacing. In less-polluted areas, the cartridge may last much longer than a year. In areas with higher, ongoing, or extreme pollution, the cartridge may need changing more often.
In general, we suggest changing the APART Collection Cartridge using Brio’s Check/Change Indicator as a guide or once every 12 months.
