In-depth Review of Levoit Core 300:
Levoit Core 300 uses 3-stage filtration: pre-filter, true HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter. Pre-filter captures large airborne particles like hair and pet fur, which also prolongs the life span of the main HEPA filter. The pre-filter is washable, and you need to vacuum it every 2 – 4 weeks.
The primary filter is a true HEPA filter that traps 99.97% of household dust, dust mites, pollen, mold spores smoke particles of 0.3 microns in diameter.
A granular activated carbon filter is placed at the 3rd step filtration, which will help you to absorb cooking smells, cigarette odor, and some VOCs. Although this is not a heavy-duty odor absorber as the filter is not deeper. So, don’t select it if your primary concern is to remove odor from your room.
The filter needs to be replaced every 6-8 months, which looks great. It comes with four types of filters you can choose from. The air purifier has no UV-C or ionizer; hence it’s completely ozone-free.
