Also, do air purifiers help with smell?
Air purifiers work to remove odor by using a fan to cycle the air in a room. While the True HEPA filter doesn't adsorb the smell like Activated Carbon filter, it will help capture even the tiniest particles of contaminants which release the odors. Combining both these filters will clean your air better.

Likewise, people ask, do HEPA filters remove smells?
Since pure HEPA air filters do not remove odors, chemicals or gasses, HEPA air purifiers have some level of activated carbon-based material to absorb odors and chemicals that are not caught by the HEPA element.
How do I get rid of air smell?
Once a month, pour a cup of white vinegar down the drain, let it sit for a half hour, and then rinse. Vinegar has an acrid, noxious smell, but it's only temporary, and its high acidity will kill burgeoning bacteria and other odor-causing elements quickly, cheaply and naturally.
