I need to get another hand vac and the one I want is ionic. I don’t know anything about appliances that are ionic and wondering if there will be things like high frequency noise or unhealthy invisible things that it could emit that would be bad for birds?

Hello! I am a biologist at a hospital anatomic processing lab for a very large state hospital- I do not know about vacuums but we absolutely WILL NOT use any ionic air filters in the hospital at all because they 1)will not actually remove dust without the mechanical fan component and b) release ozone as a byproduct. Technically, Ionic air filters don't produce enough ozone to be illegal but it can made some humans feel ill (if we're that big and feel sick I can only imagine effects on smaller living things).

I don't know about vacuums specifically, but I personally would not risk it based on how similar technology works.
