  • How to tell if your pet has allergies

    Humans are not alone when it comes to the woes of allergy season. According to The Florida Times-Union, our pets can be just as susceptible to seasonal symptoms as humans, and there are ways to tell if your dog or cat is suffering.

    "The most common symptom of allergies in dogs or cats is excessive itching, also called pruritis. Animals may chew, bite, lick or rub their skin more than usual," the news source reports. "Other symptoms include redness on the face, dark-stained areas on the feet from excessive licking, oily skin from constant rubbing and redness inside the ear flaps."

    Purchasing a professional-grade air purifying system may not only be a hidden blessing for our furry friends, but also a welcome relief us, especially if we're prone to pet-related allergies.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is the ideal choice for allergy-sufferers, health-conscious individuals and, of course, their pets. The HealthPro Plus combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively clear the air of pollen, dust, dust mites, pet dander, smoke, mold, gases, odors and more.

  • Dayton, Ohio voted worst city for allergy-sufferers

    A new list ranking the allergen and pollution levels of American cities voted Dayton, Ohio, the worst city in the country for those who suffer from allergy symptoms, the Dayton Business Journal reports.

    "Dayton ranks in the top 10 for both spring and fall allergies, making it the all time worst U.S. city for allergy-sufferers based on pollen score, medicine use per patient and board-certified allergists per 10,000 patients," the news source reports.

    While this is certainly bad news for Dayton residents, Americans nationwide have cause to evaluate their own environment in terms of the cleanliness of the air they breathe.

    Many people are turning to high quality air purifying systems to take control of their indoor air environment, improve their respiratory health and boost their overall sense of well-being.

    The top-rated, best-selling brands available from FreshAirPro are a leading choice among consumers for their undeniable reputability, quality and cutting-edge technology. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one of the only models on the market today to feature a HyperHEPA filter, the most advanced filter of its class.

  • Late-blooming allergies are on the rise

    According to new research, late-blooming allergies are becoming increasingly common among adults and prove to be more likely to turn into life-long conditions for those who develop them. A nationwide survey found that at least half of all Americans have tested positive for allergies, USA Weekend reports.

    "Your body may have a threshold for a particular allergen, such as pollen or animal dander," the news source explains. "First contact increases your sensitivity but may not cause symptoms; with repeated exposure over time, you cross that threshold, and your body reacts."

    With symptoms on the rise, more Americans may consider investing in an air purifying system to help alleviate the effects of seasonal allergies.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is the ideal choice for health-conscious individuals. This top-rated, best-selling brand combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively remove over 99 percent of dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mold, smoke, gases, odors and other airborne contaminants. Plus, its HyperHEPA filter is the most advanced filter of its kind, capable of filtering particles 10 times smaller than standard HEPA models.

  • With an air purifying system, you can see clearly now too

    Do you miss the clear-sightedness that precedes and follows the spring allergy season? With all kinds of irritants floating around on the breeze, it's not uncommon to see plenty of less fortunate people walking around with red, itchy eyes.

    How does this happen? "Within seconds of histamines flooding your nose, they start getting into the blood supply and irritating surrounding tissue, making your eyes watery, itchy, and bloodshot," Douglas Dawson, M.D., told Women's Health magazine.

    With such an instant reaction to contend with, allergy-sufferers may want to get to the root of the cause with some preemptive measures. Professional-grade air purifying systems remain as one of the most effective antidotes.

    The top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus can be the solution to all of your allergy woes, at least when it comes to your indoor environment. Four advanced filtration technologies work together to effectively tackle over 99 percent of all particulate matter, including pollen, dust, pet dander and mold.

  • Spring cleaning tips for allergy-sufferers

    Spring is a proverbial minefield for allergy-sufferers, what with the pollen, the new proliferation of mold and the dust that goes flying as a result of spring cleaning. Where the latter is concerned, there are a few measures you can take to minimize the impact on your sniffles.

    According to MonstersAndCritics.com, allergy-sufferers should beware of cleaning solutions as well as any loose dust that may enter the air. Diluting solutions with water or damp-wiping with just a wet cloth can potentially help alleviate any irritation.

    The news source also recommends taking measures to prevent mold from forming in the first place, but there is one solution that can help tackle more than two birds with one stone.

    A professional-grade air purifying system from FreshAirPro is equipped to effectively eliminate over 99 percent of all particulate matter - including dust, dust mites, mold, pollen, pet dander and more - to pre-emptively prevent airborne contamination. Clean air may also result in less frequent cleaning, as dust may not readily collect on surfaces.

  • Make clean air a priority on your spring cleaning list

    Lots of people are opening their doors, breaking out their brooms and dusting off their couch covers in time for spring. But while your spring cleaning checklist may be quite extensive, there's one important item that will make all the difference when it comes to how clean your home actually feels.

    While it's certainly important to sweep, dust, vacuum and mop, a professional-grade air purifying system can effectively eliminate more than 99 percent of the stray particles that contribute to routine messes in the first place. More importantly, clean air provides a noticeable freshness to your environment that will significantly enhance each cleaning day to come.

    That's because high-efficiency models, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, combine multiple filtration technologies to deliver the best possible results. The HealthPro Plus is one of the market's best-rated, top-selling products thanks to its four different filtration levels, including its HyperHEPA filter and activated carbon stage.

    The HyperHEPA filter is the most advanced filter of its class, able to remove particles up to 10 times smaller than standard HEPA models. Harmful chemicals, gases and unwanted odors won't stand a chance against the activated carbon, considered widely to be the most effective means of eliminating these contaminants.

  • Second-hand smoke polluting some areas of the nation

    Second-hand smoke is no longer just a threat if you live with or stand close to someone smoking a cigarette. Harmful particles are making their way into the air at large, making it a larger pollution concern than some people initially thought.

    The Kentucky Center for Smoke-free Policy (KCSP) conducted a research study of the air quality in Rowan County, Kentucky, and found that city dwellers outside Morehead were at risk for being exposed to harmful levels of second-hand smoke, though Morehead, which recently implemented smoke-free laws, had smoke levels six to seven times lower than the surrounding area, The Morehead News reports.

    Beyond implementing far-reaching legislation, there are a few simple steps people can take (such as avoiding congested thoroughfares) to avoid pollution. We can exercise a much greater amount of control over indoor spaces, however, by installing a high-quality air purifying system.

    FreshAirPro offers a range of top-rated, best-selling brands that implement the most sophisticated technologies available on the market today. Many of their machines combine a minimum of a HEPA filter as well as activated carbon to both filter particles and remove harmful chemicals and odors from the air.

  • Plants make it possible to grow your own fresh air

    By now, it's well apparent that plants have a positive and tangible impact on the quality of indoor air as well as the moods of surrounding inhabitants. But what if you took that idea and created a systematic (and quite green) solution?

    New Delhi researcher Kamal Meattle did just that, so much so that his office building, where he implemented the system, was deemed by the Indian government as the healthiest building in New Delhi, with increased human productivity of 20 percent (to see him explain why, check out this video).

    Meattle's process involves setting up four areca palms per person, as they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Six to eight mother-in-law's tongues should be counted per head as well, termed "bedroom plants" since they do the same work as areca palms during the night. Combined with money plants, which remove formaldehyde and other volatile chemicals from the air, these plants all work together to create some of the freshest, most self-sustaining indoor air around.

    Can't imagine having that many plants around? Kill several birds with one stone by installing a high-quality air purifying system in your home. The top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus is the perfect solution for health-conscious individuals who wish to breathe air that's virtually contaminant-free.

  • Up close and personal with air pollution particles

    It's been widely accepted that air pollution is bad for our health, but it hasn't been easy - even for scientists - to determine exactly why.

    However, a recent study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives found a link between diabetes patients' responses to air pollution and the way a normal respiratory system would function, University of Rochester Medical Center News reports. In the study, diabetes patients breathing in ultrafine particles found in polluted air experienced an activation of their blood platelets, a response which could increase the risk of heart disease.

    "Our findings indicate that when someone is exposed to air pollution, the platelets become activated, which would make them more likely to trigger a heart attack," researcher Mark Frampton, M.D., said.

    Although there are measures that health-conscious individuals may take to avoid pollution-heavy areas outside, much greater control can be exercised over one's indoor air environment. Purchasing one of the top-market air purifiers available from FreshAirPro is the most effective means to clear pollutants and other airborne contaminants from the air that you breathe.

  • Simple tips to help you cleanse your home environment

    There's more to home cleaning than mopping and sweeping. Sometimes, the most contaminated areas of our homes are the ones we don't see, and poor indoor air quality can have a major effect on both our respiratory health and our state of well-being.

    AOL Health suggests taking off your shoes before entering the house, using plant-based cleaning products, steaming floors with hot water, using toxin-free paints, using herbal laundry soaps, drinking certified filtered water and ditching the scented candles and air fresheners.

    However, all of these steps can only go so far. An even more effective way to detoxify your indoor air environment is to install a professional-grade air purifying system.

    For the best technology on the market today, look to the top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus. IQAir combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively remove over 99 percent of all particulate matter, including dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold, smoke, gases, odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Plus, its HyperHEPA filter stage is the most advanced filter of its class, able to capture particles ten times smaller than standard HEPA models.
