  • What exactly are dust mites?

    Many people may have heard mention of the microscopic creatures without ever really learning what a dust mite was.

    Dust mites are not just another variety of inanimate sneeze-triggers that float around your apartment. The house dust mite is actually a tiny insect that thrives off of organic material such as human skin flakes and takes shelter in household dust, and the combination of the two can be a major detriment to allergy-sufferers.

    Though they also are found in bedding, couches and old clothing, the dust mites leave behind a powerful allergen that many people react to strongly.

    One of the only effective means of getting rid of dust mites is installing a professional grade air purifying system. A cutting-edge machine such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus can effectively tackle a range of airborne contaminants, including dust, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, and various other microorganisms.

    The HealthPro Plus contains 5 pounds of activated carbon to eliminate compounds that cause pesky odors and is also equipped with a HyperHEPA filter, the most advanced filter of its class.

  • New study reveals more about the spread of flu

    While many of us are in the practice of washing our hands often and coughing into our sleeves, there appears to be more to preventing the spread of the flu virus.

    Virginia Tech researcher Linsey Marr determined that the flu could indeed be spread simply by breathing the same air as a sick person. Marr and her team of researchers placed air filters around several pubic establishments and later evaluated the filters at the lab, WDBJ7.com reports.

    "The concentrations are high enough that it is certainly possible that you could go into a room where someone has been sick and been spreading viruses and you could just breathe that air and potentially get the flu," Marr told the news source.

    Of course, this also proves that air filters can be a highly effective means of preventing the spread of airborne illnesses.

    Look to any of FreshAirPro's professional-grade air purifying systems for cutting-edge technology that is built to effectively tackle airborne viruses and bacteria as well as a range of other airborne contaminants.

  • How an indoor air purifier could address a major environmental threat

    It's no big secret that indoor air pollution is a health threat, but many people may be unaware that the Environmental Protection Agency actually registers it as one of the top five environmental threats in the United States.

    According to Idaho's KPVI News 6, indoor air pollution is typically caused by pets, carpeting, cleaning products and combustion fuels that heat the home. These can all combine to trigger health reactions such as watery eyes, scratchy throats and runny noses.

    Those who are interested in preventing these undesirable effects will find that a professional grade air purifying system not only delivers the freshest possible indoor air quality, but a marked improvement in health as well.

    Health-conscious individuals should look to the top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus. It combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively remove a range of airborne contaminants, which include the advanced HyperHEPA filter stage. The HyperHEPA filter is the most efficient filter in its class and can remove particles as small as .003 microns in size.

  • Las Vegas braces for dust advisory

    Those living in the Western U.S. may well be aware that dust storms are far more common than those who live on the coasts might think.

    A dust advisory was issued for Tuesday and Wednesday in the Las Vegas Valley by The Clark County Department of Air Quality and Environmental Management, as high winds are expected to blow large amounts of dust through the air.

    According to the Clark County official website, unhealthy amounts of airborne dust can worsen the symptoms of pre-existing asthma and bronchitis, and residents are encouraged to take measures to slow the spread of the pollution.

    Large dust storms may be hard to prevent, but homeowners can create clean breathing conditions inside their homes with a professional-grade air purifying system.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one of the top-rated, best-selling purifying systems on the market. It combines four advanced filtration technologies to remove 99.97 percent of most airborne particles, including dust, dust mites, pollen, mold, smoke, pet dander, gases and odors.
