Its a beautiful Spring morning. You're excited to start your weekend after a long week of work demands. The weather is perfect and you've got a ton of fun things planned with friends and family. And then it happens, out of nowhere your allergy symptoms come in like a thief in the night and trample all over your plans! The most frustrating part can be not knowing what's causing these pesky if not debilitating allergy symptoms and how to stop them from attacking you. Well what if there was a way you could dramatically reduce these allergy symptoms by simply pressing a button... thats right, it can be THAT SIMPLE with SimpliiAir portable air purifier.
The most common allergens in the home are pet dander, dust and mold. Lets take a closer look at what allergens are and how they can make you miserable.
What are Allergens?
According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology, an allergen is a harmless substance capable of triggering an immune response that starts in the immune system and results in an allergic reaction. Once exposed to an allergen, they are identified as "foreign invaders" by your immune system. In an effort to shield you from these "invaders" your immune system releases various things to "attack" the enemy. While done in good faith, these "attacks" unfortunately are the cause of the dreaded allergy symptoms and allergic reactions.
Allergy reactions are most prominent in the nose, ear, throat, eyes, skin and mouth. If you've ever had an allergy attack or know someone who has, you know that allergens are irritating nuisances and an inconvenience to say the least. In other instances, allergens can be life threatening. The key to minimizing allergy symptoms is by keeping the allergens that cause them under control. Pet allergens are a good example. One of the simplest and most effective ways to do this is by cleaning these allergens out of your air with an air purifier in all of the rooms in your home and office.
What exactly is Dust?
When you think of dust, what comes to mind? If you're like most, you think of a thin layer of tiny bits of "fluff" that you see around your house and other places. Truth is, most of us don't give much thought to what this layer of white "fluff" could be. These tiny little particles generated inside our home, office, car, can be a mixture of organic materials such as dust mite feces, skin flakes, pollen, feces of cockroaches and other horrendous things all living in the air we breath. I know, how disgusting right?! Other materials found in dust are soil, bits of fabric and other substances that may contain toxins.
While most of the dust settles on floors, furniture and other objects, tiny particles still remain in the air. Worse yet, they are continuously stirred back into the air and therefore causing you to inhale them. American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology has identified dust as the most common indoor allergen and symptoms are often present year round.
Dust Allergy Symptoms
According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology the most common dust allergy symptoms are:
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Red, itchy or teary eyes
- Wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath
Things you can do today to minimize dust allergens:
- Clean and dust regularly
- Vacuum regularly
- Keep an air purifier running in each room at all times
What exactly is Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus that consists of small living organisms. Mold is found everywhere and can be black, white, orange, green or purple. Mold thrives on moisture and reproduce by means of tiny spores that travel through the air. We are all exposed to mold every day. In small amounts, mold spores are usually harmless, but when they fall on a damp spot in your home or office, they can start growing. Once mold starts growing on a surface, spores are released into the air where they are easily inhaled.
Mold, like dust, is another common indoor allergen that the human body identifies as a foreign object. Mold spore are tiny airborne particles that can easily get into your body through inhaling.
Mold Allergy Symptoms
The Mayo Clinic has identified the following as the most common mold allergy symptoms:
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Cough and postnasal drip
- Itchy eyes, nose and throat
- Watery eyes
- Dry, scaly skin
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, mold spores get into your nose and cause allergy symptoms. Even worse, they can get into your lungs and trigger asthma. This is why it is absolutely essential to stop mold from both reproducing and growing. To do this, we must stop them in their tracks by eliminating them in the air before they get a chance to settle into a new space in your home. A high quality air purifier in every room will be able to capture these mold spores while in the air.
So Lets Clear The Air
Now that we know all of this, what can we do? Simple, lets clean the air!
SimpliiAir is an advanced technology air cleaner that works to purify your air of toxins as small as 0.3 microns. These include mold spores, dust particles, pet dander, germs and other airborne allergens invisible to the naked eye. It uses a smart anion technology much like our immune system, to destroy these allergens.
SimpliiAir senses these harmful allergens, seeks them out and attacks them in large numbers by emitting ions into the air. The emitted ions attach to these allergen's (mold, dust, pollen, etc), making the latter too heavy to stay airborne and are therefore eliminated from the air you breath. Once SimpliiAir pulls these allergens out of your air, they will no longer be able to cause allergic reactions or other respiratory problems when you breath. SimpliiAir small room air purifier needs to be a staple in every room of your home.
Mold and dust particles are just two of many allergens in our indoor environment. They may be stubborn and annoying but they're more than a nuisance. Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to these microscopic particles pose a threat to our overall health and well being, especially if we are spending 90% of our time indoors. It is imperative that we use a high quality air purifier to clean our air.
