It also neutralises mould, dust, dust mites, viruses, bacteria and odours. Zambezi looks after your home even after you have turned it off using exclusive technology. 

Relative humidity is very hard to gauge, you cannot feel it if unless it gets to the extremes at the very top or the very bottom of the range but Zambezi can! So if you have turned your dehumidifier off and it really should be on Zambezi will flash HI at you on its display to get your attention and then you can turn the dehumidifier on to keep the relative humidity under control.

The DD8L Zambezi has an air cleaner ioniser unlike other dehumidifier ionisers which typically have an effective range of around one metre and only deal with dust. Zambezi uses Sterilising Ioniser+ technology clinically proven to destroy viruses, bacteria, mould, odours and germs over a 10m range. The high end ceramic high voltage ioniser emits a combination of hydrogen and oxygen ions to help create a cleaner, healthier and safer environment for your family. No other domestic dehumidifier in its class has the air cleaning functionality of the DD8L Zambezi.
