Relieve Spring Allergies with HEPA Air Filtration
Spring is in the air… and so is the POLLEN. While some are running into the great outdoors, others are running to the pharmacy for some allergy relief! And it’s not just pollen; there are other air pollutants in our home that can trigger allergy symptoms. The itchy eyes, runny nose and fatigue that come with allergies can be brutal. The use of HEPA filters can help relieve your home of these allergens and thereby reduce your allergy attacks.
HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters work by trapping those pollutants that trigger allergies. It’s a type of mechanical air filter that works by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps harmful particles such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and tobacco smoke that non-HEPA filters can’t catch.
Using an air purifier with a HEPA filter can help you breathe easier. A HEPA air purifier (also known as an air cleaner) reduces the concentration of airborne contaminants and is an essential component to maintaining an allergen-free home. They guarantee that they will trap 99.97% of particles larger than .3 microns (enough to help relieve your symptoms). They’re also beneficial to those with asthma and other respiratory-related issues.
A HEPA air purifier can remove most airborne particles, but the particles suspended in air are not the only ones in your home. There are far more particles in your rug, on your floor, mattresses, or upholstered furniture. A vacuum with HEPA air filtration works best to remove these particles and they throw less dirt and fewer microscopic dust mites back into the room as you vacuum.
