In brief: Get rid of it
You can never know if someone gives you something used where it's been how well it's been taken care of, or what kind of condition it's it, whether is has been maintenanced properly or filters changed.
You could be doing the opposite of what you are trying to do. I.E. Toxifying with the air you are breathing vs. Making you healthier and removing toxins from the air you breath. Do research!
