Here’s something that’ll actually do something good for your lungs instead of just making the air stink pretty.

There are some great air purifiers on Amazon that you can plug in that will help a lot.

I really like this one: https://www.amazon.com/LEVOIT-Purifier-Home-Allergies-Pets/dp/B07VVK39F7/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=air&qid=1626521127&sr=8-3#

You may also want to look into getting charcoal bags to put in the closet and your drawers for extra, localized smell removal help. Plastic airtight bins are likely better than the bags you are using.

You might consider getting something like this air filter:
Amazon link

And there are foods you can feed the cats to reduce the stuff you are allergic to.

Maybe those in combination with allergy treatments will make it possible for you. 🙂

Edit: eventually, not immediately. I know allergy shots take time. And if you do adopt, consider taking them to a groomer that can bathe them or at least thoroughly wipe them down to remove the dried saliva from their fur to reduce the “load” they bring into your home.

Amazon link

4th product picture, the third row, read it

There’s also a version that’s “smart” with Alexa and some extra features, that one is listed for $89 instead of $99 and when you go to it, there’s an check box for a $10 coupon right under the price, so I guess it would be like $79

Yes. I have Levoit air purifier (smaller model) for my small studio.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VVK39F7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_HWFJ74H781W21X8BM5J4

The larger model another commenter posted is same model OneMedical uses. It’s a great brand which I have a few products from them (air purifier, humidifier etc)

this is the air purifier I have for them. It sits about 3-4 feet away from the cage. I can’t get it any closer to the cage because the nearest outlet is far away and I already have it plugged into a extension cord. I’m definitely not comfortable plugging it in to two connected extension cords lol I’m looking for a VERY trustworthy longer extension cord that I can keep it plugged into to get it closer to the cage

I was just about to say this! I live in the same type of older apartment and a white noise machine is great. You get used to it. I have an air purifier that I run while I’m home that sounds just like a white noise machine and purifies the air at the same time. I got it on Amazon a couple years back:

I’ve tried that and didn’t really get that much air moving through the filter. I thought maybe it was because the box fan doesn’t have enough static pressure to really pull air through the filter effectively enough. Maybe my filter was too restrictive or something though, who knows. The air purifier I bought moves a lot more air though.

The purifier I bought:

If you have the means, this air purifier has been a life saver. I’ll run this while smoking and the smell is gone witching a few hours. Quicker if you have a fan or window open to help circulate.

HEPA filters generally can filter smoke. I ordered this one for my apartment (not an endorsement, haven’t tried it yet).

If it gets as bad as it did last year, and you don’t have central air conditioning, you’ll want one at least for your bedroom at night.

This one isn’t hugely expensive (~$100), and just as importantly, the replacement filter is widely available (~$30). It worked for me in my tiny at-home office last year, and we also used one in our bedroom. Data from my indoor air quality monitor (Airthings Wave) showed it worked well.

If you can afford it, buy a replacement filter WHEN you buy the device, because both were sold out for several weeks last year when the smoke got bad.

Honestly at bare minimum should get a HEPA filter fan. I got this one and like it filter I know you probably have different options but wanted to share. One thing to know fans are NOT quiet. The filters are so restrictive that it takes alot to push the volume of air. I have my filter next to the printer so i bought a cement block and used the foam that came with the filter and some spare carpet insolation to cut down on the vibrations.

Honestly I would talk to your parents and maybe have them watch the video. If I had a kid and he told me that he was worried about his health and wanted a place to put it I would work something out. This hobby teaches you so much. Atleast your learning and not out getting drunk/knocking up the neighbor (or getting knocked up).

I’m the overly cautious type so I take the issues seriously. Others don’t so it’s up to you to judge what you think is reasonable.

FWIW as someone else said a HEPA filter should capture VOCs.

This is important because if I remember correctly VOCs are released for months after you paint, albeit obviously in lower numbers than the first few days.

So maybe while you’re out see about ordering a few filters for rooms you will sleep or hang out in a lot.

I actually just ordered this one last night, I can’t speak to it’s use as I haven’t used it yet but the filter is said to last a long time and replacements are reasonably priced.

Note: it has multiple filter options, for VOCs you’ll want the “toxin absorber” filter which it says targets VOCs.

I got a puppy about 2 months ago who mainly hangs out and sleeps in my (pretty small) room. Her crate stays in my room as well. There was a noticeable dog smell anytime I left the room and came back.

I purchased an air purifier from Amazon over a month ago and I got the pet filters in hopes of it helping the smell. The smell has noticeably gone away, most of the time I don’t smell the dog at all anymore. I’m overall really happy with it. Even my mom who is not in my room as much as I am said she doesn’t smell the dog anymore. Before it was pretty bad. It really does help and make a difference. I purchased it March 10 and have still not had to change out the filter, although I do clean it off every once in a while.

This is the one I got here

Edit: I should add my room is pretty small, so this purifier is good for the size of my room. You may want to look into a larger one or multiple for your whole house if that’s what you have in mind.

This thing will do wonders. I have seasonal allergies + allergies to mice and cockroaches, and it has been life changing for me. I also did a test once where I ran my diffuser (filled with strong woody and leathery smells) at the same time as this air purifier, and there wasn’t a scent to be found. https://www.amazon.com/LEVOIT-Purifier-Home-Allergies-Pets/dp/B07VVK39F7

Hey u/diogoff10 !

​

Yeah, after years of waking up severely congested I woke up one day and ordered the LEVOIT air purifier. Now I just wake up slightly congested! I really like it though. If you’re a light sleeper, it has a sleep mode where its super quiet. you can also turn off the LED lights if they bother you as you sleep.

I have this one and like it. Though I think you need to check the size of your space and compare it to the filter’s specs because it is meant for a small room. Same company makes bigger ones if needed. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VVK39F7/ref=asc_df_B07VVK39F7/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=343374743188&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4638579994463167026&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&am…

edit -and now that I read it again I’m picturing a multi story concrete parking garage

I see some people haven’t taken the frangible asbestos class yet….

not knowing what the garage looks like I wouldn’t stir everything up like that.

A HEPA filter would go a long way tho…

I have this Levoit in my guest bedroom and while it’s not completely silent, it works pretty well for under $100. Downside is it can’t be taken apart for deep cleaning. I also have two of these Coway – one in my bedroom, one in my living room, bought on sale for around $140 iirc. They are easy to clean and very silent. Good luck!

This one’s small and has a stylish, sleek design:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VVK39F7/

One nice perk is you can turn off the lights, which makes it kind of disappear (especially useful in a bedroom at night). There are different replacement filter options, which makes it economical to choose the one that best fits your needs (I use the highest-end “Toxin Absorber” filter).

This one’s also a great value, but more powerful (on the other hand, it’s also bigger and not as stylish, although it plays a nice melody when you turn it on):

https://www.amazon.com/Winix-5500-2-Purifier-PlasmaWave-Reducing/dp/B01D8DAYII/

One nice perk is this comes with a handy remote control, though you can’t turn off the light on the unit. It includes a washable prefilter (which helps extend the life of the HEPA filter) and a carbon filter for smells.

This one’s a top-of-the-line (without reaching extravagant territory) air purifier. It’s more expensive because it captures particles three times as small as the above two (0.1 microns instead of 0.3 microns):

https://www.amazon.com/Hathaspace-Smart-Medical-Grade-Purifier/dp/B07V56QH7T

It looks real nice and fancy, but it’s much bigger and heavier than the other two. Like the one above, it includes a washable prefilter (which helps extend the life of the HEPA filter) and a carbon filter for smells.

I actually own all three (including multiple copies of the Levoit model), and that’s after I evaluated 35 different air purifiers across many different metrics in an Excel spreadsheet. So these are the best of the best.

If you’re curious, this is my actual spreadsheet: https://i.imgur.com/uJdRerZ.jpg

A bunny IG that I follow (sincerelycinnabun) uses this air purifier and swears by it, but it’s pretty pricy at almost $100. There’s this one from the same brand that’s cheaper at ~$50 though.

Before anyone points me to the test results they included note that that isn’t a test result for their product but for one of the components of their filter. And further note that that test result does not meet the typical 99.97% HEPA standard at 0.3 microns.

I’m also skeptical of their comparisons to other air filters. Like they compare against a Black and Decker (no idea which model) in one table to show better air flow but then compare against totally other air filters to show better prices. Also to demonstrate “lower power use” they compare the voltages the purifiers run at (as if that matters).

And just look at their comparison to “amazon brands”. Just search “HEPA air purifier” on Amazon and take the first result. It costs a third of their product, has twice the air flow (no idea where they got the numbers in their table) and actually contains a HEPA filter.

It looks like it’s $99 now (but they sometimes have a “coupon” you can clip at Amazon):

LEVOIT Air Purifier for Home Allergies Pets Hair in Bedroom, H13 True HEPA Filter, 24db Filtration System Cleaner Odor Eliminators, Ozone Free, Remove 99.97% Dust Smoke Mold Pollen, Core 300, White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VVK39F7

This used to be called the “core 300” but it looks like they might have renamed it now —
There’s also a Levoit H132 which is $69 after coupon. I haven’t tried this one though:

LEVOIT Air Purifier for Home, H13 True HEPA Filter for Smokers, Smoke, Dust, Mold, and Pollen in Bedroom, Filtration System Odor Eliminators for Office with Optional Night Light, 1 pack, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07W9KX55D

For the filters, I’ve bought the 3rd party ones and they worked as great as the OEM ones:

It looks like the price on those went up a bit also (it used to be 2 for $22, now it’s 2 for $35):

Cabiclean 2 Pack Core 300 Replacement Filter Compatible with LEVOIT Core 300, H13 HEPA Filter, Compare to Part No. Core 300-RF, White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P2TXHP3

Keep in mind that the Levoit has a filter included (hepa + pre-filter + carbon) which lasts about 6 months, so this 2 pack would extend that to about 18 months.
Unlike the Ikea, these include all the filters in one set. The Ikea has a $6 hepa filter + $12 charcoal filter and no optional replaceable pre-filter (it’s built into the mesh cover of the purifier) so cost comes to about the same for Ikea of these 2 packs

I feel your pain. I tried a bunch of stuff with no results, even the growers intake filter. I recently got an air filter for the room the LR3 is in and no more smells. I also started to soak the globe and waste bin in hot water and vinegar once a month. I replace the seal strips about monthly now, I purchased these and cut to fit the LR3. I also change the carbon filters at the same time. I use these and also cut to fit. They are bit thinner than the ones sold by LR, so I double up.

The Leviot Air purifiers are some of yhe best and regularly recc’d on posts re: smells.

I have a tiny kitchen in apt without central air & my window units in other rooms. I thankfully have a window so I use a window fan used in RV’s with both fan/exhaust option.

Also Instant pot is great appliance to have for this situation. I been using it when it’s too hot to cook. That and toaster oven.

Unfortunately I doubt your building can do much bc in order to provide truly proper venting they’d have to exhaust out to exterior which is not a simple task.

Some example powerful HEPA air filters to consider (for helping to actually remove the nasty smoke smell/smoke particles, vs using nasty chemical plug-in air fresheners to only mask the smell):

and there are many other options like those…

So sorry for all you are going through.

1: Decide if they are allowed on your couch/bed/chairs…. if you want to try to keep the fur down then I would say don’t let them on your furniture. Get them nice comfy crates and/or dog beds, and place them there with a nice bully stick or stuffed kong so they get used to relaxing on those and not your furniture. Be consistent, NEVER let them on the furniture so they know that’s the rules. Buy a good “pet” vacuum and vacuum the house every few days that should help…. also invest in lint rollers that will be your new life saver. That and the lilly brush for scraping off hair.

2: For any dog smell id recommend a good HEPA air purifier, it will work wonders!

3: I usually use Earth Bath shampoo, i find it’s not harsh on their skin and the smell isn’t too overwhelming. If you can i’d suggest taking them to a groomer for a good wash and grooming, even if it’s just for their first time before taking them home. That way they can get nice and clean, de shedded, and have their nails trimmed, etc.

4: I don’t really have many essential cleaning supplies, I have brushes, toothbrush, and shampoo/conditioner. You may need feet wipes if their paws get dirty in your area. As for household cleaning, if they are having accidents on carpet/rugs definitely get a carpet spot cleaner, this one is awesome for small areas, and the lilly brush is good for hair removal.

5: Toys will depend on what they are interested in. Kongs are great for enrichment, stuff them with their food, PB, freeze yogurt or wet food… keeps them busy for a while, and gets their brain working. My dog loves fetch, so balls are a must, I think maybe you are talking about nylabones which are good if they like to chew. I would also suggest Whimzees orBully sticks for good chews.

6: For a good “3-in-1” the price sounds about right, your options are probably something like Bravecto or Trifexis. Many dogs have SEVERE reactions to oral medication though, so watch out for adverse reactions like vomiting, seizures, lethargy, etc. Personally I use Vectra 3d which I like. I would say the oral medication is better for Severe flea infestations, but Vectra works fine for my needs.

7: It’s awesome of you to think about giving up your dream car… Subaru is definitely the “dog” car but I would go with what you ultimately want, just needs to have a back seat really. I would HIGHLY suggest a hammock for your back seat, it will save your seats!!

8: I would make sure you are looking at their food, make sure they at least have a high quality kibble. Don’t feed Iams, Blue Buffalo, Purina, none of the ‘generic name brand’ stuff, it’s full of nasty fillers and is a waste of money. If you want to stick to kibble i would suggest something like Merrick, Wellness, something where the first few ingredients are MEAT not corn or fillers. I’d personally say feed raw but that’s a big commitment.

Thank you for taking on the dogs, i hope the adjustment isn’t as hard as you’re anticipating, and that they bring you great joy. Goldens are so fun and loving.
