Been looking for an air purifier for my room. Nothing crazy seeing linnies aren't as dusty as other birds. Now I saw that the ikea brought out air purifiers.
Just wondering if it is safe to use or not, it has non-woven polypropylene filter/ HEPA filter.

Looks like a box with a fan and a filter. Looks pretty bird-safe to me.

Only thing I'd remind you to check is availability of replacement filters -- both the standard and the carbon filters. They usually need to be swapped out every 6 mo. to year, and can range from quite expensive to completely unobtainable. I've bought a filter in the latter category -- generally not a "good deal". If you can, I'd lean towards the middle of that range (reasonably inexpensive ;) ), since over time, you'll spend far more in the filters than the box they go in.
