Air Purifiers with Carbon filtration are MOST effective at removing formaldehyde and VOC’s from the air. The more carbon, the more effective the air purifier will be as long as it has a powerful CFM of 400CFM or higher. Also blends of Carbon with Zeolite, Potassium Permanganate and German Carbon are the most effective?
