Our youngest child stayed in a hospital for six days about a month ago. While husband and I took turns looking after him, our three other children stayed at my mom’s house. When we finally went home, a damp, earthy, and musty smell welcomed us. It apparently smelled of mold.
Our living spaces are susceptible to mold growth. And aside from the annoying smell, it can lead to health problems. It may also compromise the value of our house and possessions like shoes, bags, furniture and even clothes. The best way to prevent the growth of mold in our house it to keep it adequately ventilated. We also need to keep humidity levels as low as possible all day long. Central air conditioning, dehumidifiers may help maintain the air dry. Exhaust fan that vent outside may help as well. Air purifiers are great inventions that we could rely, too.
This month, we were able to try the engineering marvels of one brand we both love and trust. Sharp was so kind to lend us its latest Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher in time for the holiday preparation.
Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher features
It has the plasmacluster ion technology which inhibits the growth of mold and other airborne threats in closed spaces Equipped with the True HEPA Filter, it can capture 99.97% of air particles like smoke particles, dust, and pollen–even as tiny as 0.03 microns. Simply put, Plasmacluster Ion Technology eliminates harmful microscopic particles that reduces asthma attacks and other diseases caused by poor air inside the home.
The product also functions as a proven effective unit to capture mosquitoes indoors with its chemical-free 5-step mosquito-catching mechanism. Each Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher has a black exterior and UV lights that attract mosquitoes. With enticing tiny entrances on the sides, nearing mosquitoes are captured by a powerful air suction then trap them on a chemical-free glue sheet inside.
Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher results
The Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher replicates nature’s cleaning process by producing positive and negative ions from water vapor in the air. These ions refresh the air without any harmful chemical. It is proven to deactivate airborne threats by up to 99%, reduces odors, and keeps the optimal level of humidity in the air.
I so love this feature. Indeed, there was no disgusting smell inside our small house. I may say then that its unique air purifying solution works well to get rid of pesky odors, mold included.
We do not have any dengue problems at home. Still, it was reassuring to note that the unit has mosquito catcher feature. It made me extra confident that my boys could play within the house without worrying about pesky bug bites. The high incidence of dengue and zirka virus could be alarming. I have read in one report a record of about 12 thousand dengue cases and about a hundred deaths since the start of the year until this period.
As for sneezing and coughing, these two are an ordinary thing in our household. Two of my boys have asthma, and usually, my firstborn’s natural defense against dust is to sneeze or cough. I thought the Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher would lessen asthma attacks or even reduce asthma symptoms and other diseases caused by poor air inside our home. I was wrong. There seemed to be no difference. I, too, who came from flu barked a lot that time and before I knew it, all my children had caught my cold.
Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher verdict
Dust, dust mite allergens, mold, and other airborne allergens may trigger asthma attacks. And they cannot be eliminated by surface cleaning alone. And so, for mommies who value health and want to reduce diseases caused by poor air inside the home, Sharp recommends the Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher. The brand claims it is capable of suppressing the effects of airborne viruses, bacteria, microbes, allergens, and other threats. Sadly, though, we did not thoroughly enjoy this benefit. The coughing and sneezing in our home continued and until now, my firstborn has some asthma attacks.
But one thing I love about Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher is its advanced technology to get rid of pesky disgusting smells, mold included, inside our small house. I could imagine the relatively cleaner and safer air we inhale every day.

It’s big pala. Looking at the first picture, I thought it was small. But it’s good that it’s purifier at the same time mosquito catcher ~ 2 in 1. Sad nga lang because it doesn’t lessen the asthma attacks. And I think masyado ciang malaki, hindi bagay sa tiny space nmin. Hehehe.
Ours is small space din, and despite the small space, mukhang di pa rin nya kinaya. or baka there is a certain sukat ng room to be able to feel its 100% effectivity.
We stayed in one hotel that has an air purifier na ganyan kalaki and I hope meron din kami sa bahay. But I know that it is expensive so we bought Air Scrubber and Purifier few months ago, yung may scent. So far, we liked it kasi ang bango ng house. 🙂
I like it also na merong na eemit na certain mabangong smell sa house. Ihihi. Will look for that kind of brand. Thanks for the share.
Is this for free? ‘coz if it is, “you already talaga!” hehe. Seriously though, how much is this (charot, kunwari may pambili, haha). May times dito sa bahay na walang kalamok lamok at may mga times din na para silang dumayo! nakakaloka! ang galing nito ha, mosquito catcher and air purifier in one!
It costs ata not lower than P13K. Not so sure though of the price but definitely within that range or higher pa. I like how Sharp thought of this product. I just have such high hopes kaya nasad ako nang may nag uubuhan pa rin sa house. or again, I wasnt able to maximize it lang talaga. Daming buttons kasi, di ko alam ano pipindutin. ehehe.
Hello Momi Berlin, how much does Sharp Purifier cost? Though our house doesn’t smell and feel moldy pa naman, I think we need it pa din. Its better to be prepared kesa we get sick muna then we buy it, di ba? (PS, sana hindi masyadong kamahalan hehe)
Forgot the price na talaga pero alam ko it is not lower than P12000. Prang sa tanda ko naglalaro sa P14000-16000 ata. And we are missing its good effect in our house. I think we will also be needing this.
OMG, the virus in our home has been going full circles! I’m thinking of getting a purifier too, although di namin kailangan ng mosquito catcher, we don’t have mosquitoes here, surprisingly. Anyway, how much yan, mommy?
This is awesome with double purpose Air purifier with mosquito catcher. I like this specially pagkulob ang space di mo na kailangan air freshener. It’s really a great inventions no? I think maganda din ito sa room berns. How much pala ito? Thank God ok na si Yael.
This is the best air purifier to remove dust and protect from mosquito . it is the good review for a buying customer. thank you author for share you reviews.
Dear Momi Berlin
I’m sorry to hear about your son. For some couple months ago I had the same issue with the musty smell in my kitchen. I came across this page ( http://www.purifierforair.com ) that helped me with my problem. After a day or so of researching which air purifier that could help me with my problem I decided to buy one. All the bad smells in my home are now gone. I’m so glad that invested my money on a good air purifer
