There are two components to tobacco smoke:

1) The smoke itself, which is actually an airborne particulate mass; and

2) the chemical fumes and odors.

PureAir’s negative ions and photoelectrons help remove the smoke particulate from the air, while the highly active oxygen atoms and purifying hydroxyls that make up the PureAir Purifying Plasma actually neutralize the chemical fumes and destroy the odors. There should be a noticeable improvement if the right sized unit is employed. It should be noted that a more powerful or larger unit is recommended for use in dwellings with cigarette or cigar smokers.
