Why it critical and required to use a air purifier with Cockatoos and other birds

I clean and vacuum out the pre-filters weekly and birds get a bath twice a week. Cockatoos put out a lot of dander and dust and I have two IQ Air units running 24/7. Vacuum and clean bird room daily every morning before leaving for work. Yes clean the vacuum filter before cleaning the air purifier. I cleaned out one half, so you can see the different clearly, was much worst. They pretty much can clogged the air purifier in 2 weeks no problem.

Re: Why it critical and required to use a air purifier with Cockatoos and other birds

Yup---My big vacuum canister is half-filled with dust if I only spot-vacuum with a hepa filter hand-vac throughout the week..I change my air filter WAY more than the manufacturer recommends and it is crazy how quickly I go through them...I just have one Umbrella Cockatoo..I mist her daily, and I clean the cage grate 2x daily and I run a humidifier....It is amazing.
