Suffering from winter allergies? It may be time for a whole house air purifier.
When we think of allergies, we think of springtime, when every blooming flower sends an ocean of pollen into the air.
But not everyone who suffers from allergies suffers during spring. For some of us, winter is the more worrisome season, where we’re stuck inside for several months with mold and dust mites.
And these allergens can trigger symptoms like what you’d experience with a common cold:
- Runny nose
- Watery eyes
- Itchy eyes/nose
But unlike colds, allergy symptoms can last for weeks or even months. Treatments include:
- Decongestants, which can clear mucus, which in turns alleviates congestion and swelling
- Antihistamines, which help with sneezing, sniffling and itching
- Immunotherapy, which fights allergens by increasing your exposure to gradually larger doses, holding off your symptoms for a longer period
While you can’t prevent allergies, you can take measures to stop allergic reactions at home:
Clean your sinks and bathtubs with a solution made from five percent bleach and a little detergent
- Wash your bedding in hot water once a week, and use allergy-proof covers on comforters, mattresses, pillows.
- Get rid of any wallpaper, carpeting and shower curtains infested with mold
- Use a dehumidifier to control dust mites and mold, and a whole-house air filter to clear dust from the air
How can a whole house air purifier help me fight allergies?
Air purifiers like the Air Scrubber Plus can help fight the indoor air pollution that leads to allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory ailments.
Powered by ActivePure technology, the Air Scrubber Plus reduces up to 99.9 percent of the contaminants in your home. Once in place, it will insure that nearly every surface is cleaner and safer for your family, from air ducts to furniture to countertops to doorknobs. It’s as easy as switching on your fan, furnace, or air conditioning system.
This air purifier cleans and freshens the air using specialized germicidal UV light waves in conjunction with a proprietary catalytic process that creates oxygen and hydrogen molecules and mirrors nature’s scrubbing capabilities.
The technology behind it was originally developed in cooperation with NASA for use on the International Space Station, cleaning your indoor air of pollutants, cigarette smoke, dust, pollen, mold, odors, and odor causing bacteria.
In addition to purifying the air in your home, the Air Scrubber Plus reduces odor by mopping up the particles that allow those smells to fester. With the help of this whole home air purifier, you won’t need to spray or scrub your surfaces with the harmful chemicals found in household cleaners.
And as the Air Scrubber Plus cleans, it also purifies, actively treating the air by continually sending out ActivePure scrubbers to greatly reduce the chemicals, mold, and dangerous contaminants in the air.
