About CritterZone Air Naturalizer
The CritterZone Air Naturalizer creates a natural, charged flow that fills the room or vehicle and continually cleans the air. The sun provides the outdoor air with the power and energy it needs to clean itself: a power and energy that indoor air lacks. CritterZone provides indoor air with the natural charge it needs to virtually eliminate odors, allergens, dust and bacteria. Scientifically Speaking? Air Naturalization involves two distinctly different, but related, continual processes: Bi-Polar Ionization & Plasma Conversion.

New York Times article highlights CritterZone's power
New York Times writer Steven Kurutz recently tested six devices in an effort to improve the air quality in his apartment and ease his allergies. The CritterZone Air Naturalizer was among them, and the powerful device stood out for its odor control power.
In the tight quarters of his New York City apartment, Kurutz is frequently too close for comfort to his cat’s litter box. However, the CritterZone went to work right away, getting rid of the smell.
"... After the CritterZone had been humming away near the litter box for an hour, the stink vanished, replaced with a faintly chemical crispness,” he said. “It went on like that, blissfully, for days. For all we knew, the cat no longer found it biologically necessary to void."
Kurutz also interviewed allergist Dr. Daryl R. Altman, who said air purifiers are a way to combat allergy-inducing particles such as pollen or dust.
In addition to its odor control capabilities, the CritterZone stood out among the products examined in the New York Times review for its low price point. In fact, at $89.95, it was the most budget-friendly of all the devices Kurutz tested.

CritterZone donates air naturalizers to Florida K9 unit
to improve air quality in patrol cars
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — To thank the West Palm Beach, Fla., K9 unit for the work of its officers in protecting the community, CritterZone recently donated six air naturalizers and car adapters to remove animal odors from patrol cars. The CritterZones quickly remove particles that cause unpleasant smells and aggravate allergies for officers who spend many hours confined with their K9 companions.
“We wanted to show our appreciation for the level of dedication and service the West Palm Beach K9 unit provides to residents,” said Bill Converse, president of CritterZone. “In addition to spending time together in the patrol cars, the dogs go home with the handler, and all the work odors go with them. The officers really like what the units did in the house as well as the workplace. Also, we wanted to give them something that would get rid of the odor-causing material and not cover it up. By restoring the air naturally, we did not need to be concerned with altering the dogs’ highly developed sense of smell.”
K9 officers can play a major role in investigations and search-and-rescue efforts, using their powerful noses to guide other officers to suspects, evidence or missing individuals. According to HowStuffWorks.com there are thousands of K9 police dogs working in law enforcement every day, and hundreds of them have lost their lives while serving their communities.
Converse said he admires “the commitment required to train and to handle a K9 dog. It shows the dedication of the officers and the loyalty and intelligence of their animal partners.”
West Palm Beach Police K9 officer Brian Gellin said the department appreciated the donation, and their officers said the air naturalizers were greatly improving the air quality in their vehicles and homes.
Officer J. Sniffin works with K9 Officer Thor. Sniffin plugged a CritterZone in his patrol car. “As a police K9 handler, I’m in close quarters with my dog day and night. ... Within a few hours I could tell that [the CritterZone Air Naturalizer] was doing something. The air inside the car smelled ‘cleaner’ and I could breathe easier.”

CritterZone Wins 1st Place Among New Products
at Las Vegas Trade Show
The air-cleansing power of CritterZone's pet Air Naturalizer earned it first place among new products at the SuperZoo National Show for Pet Retailers in Las Vegas in 2012. Especially useful for pet owners, the Air Naturalizer eradicates the cause of pet odor, rather than masking it.
Bill Converse, president of CritterZone, said the company was pleased with the award. “The SuperZoo show was a great opportunity to show how effective our product is at removing pet odors. We were excited to be recognized for our efforts to help make pet owners' and allergy sufferers' homes more comfortable.”
He stated that the affordability and small size represents the next leap forward in modern air-cleaning technology since he created it over 20 years ago.
The CritterZone Air Naturalizer uses plasma ionic technology, which knocks microscopic materials out of the air, and hydroxyls, which break down the chemicals that make up pet odors and other smells. In doing so, it recreates natural air balances, much like the earth does during a thunderstorm.
The compact air naturalizer unit is filter-free and very powerful. It can clean the air in the entire ground floor of an average-sized home. It is also energy saving, using only about 3 watts of energy.
"I share my home with four cats, two guinea pigs, and a Quaker parrot, which means a constant battle with pet odors and a parade of cleaning products. I have multiple litter boxes and try to keep them scrupulously clean, but sometimes it's a losing battle.
...I waited for just the right time to start my test, on an afternoon when Farquaad decided to stink up the room. I plugged in the unit and set it on the highest of its three settings. Amazingly, within minutes the nasty odor was gone.
...Next up was one of the cats' most heavily trafficked litter boxes. It's in my front entry hall, which makes it especially important that guests aren't greeted with Eau de Multi-Cat. The area is also susceptible to guinea pig odors, since it's adjacent to the pig and bird room.
The CritterZone performed just as well in the larger space as in the powder room, and the ozone smell was less noticeable since it was in a bigger area. I decided that would be its permanent home; I'm sure all my future guests will appreciate it." [Read More]
Ernie Slone, the editor of Dog Fancy magazine, a sister publication to Pet Product News International, selected the CritterZone Air Purifier by AirRestore as one of his top 11 product picks at Global Pet Expo 2013.
...we were asked to review the Critter Zone... A home with 30 sled dogs, two that sleep in our bedroom, and Robert with a severe case of allergies to just about anything he can sneeze at. When the box arrived the first thing he said was, “How is this little thing going to do any good?”
Boy was he wrong! He plugged it up and placed it on the nightstand next to the bed and it started working right away!
“This little thing packs a big punch! This is a product I would recommend to all of my clients, family and friends,” says Forto. “If this can work for me and my allergies, it will work for anyone!” [Read More]
"Introducing the CritterZone Air Purifier, a new player in the fight against pet odors. My life pretty much revolves around stain and odor elimination, so I’m always trying new things to help with the problem. ...This tiny unit almost immediately eliminates all odors in up to 800 square feet. Just plug it in, turn it on, and you’re done. I can’t tell you exactly how it works, but I can tell you that there is nothing to replace, nothing to refill, and nothing to clean. Ever!
It’s not a filter, it’s not a spray, it’s not an ionizer (like the other ionizers on the market). It uses some kind of low voltage electrical charge to literally destroy odor molecules, not just those that pass through the unit, but throughout the entire room. And it is such low voltage, that you can leave it on 24/7 because it costs about $.01 per day to operate.
Sounds too good to be true? I thought so, too, but I’m convinced, this is the greatest invention EVER! [Read More]
