  • Carpets are well worth cleaning: Effective ways to improve indoor air quality

    While many of us may be aware of the factors that contribute to poor indoor air quality, not all of us always know when a major culprit is lying right under our feet.

    "Carpets act as a filter that holds soil, dust mites, pollen, debris and other contaminants," according to The Republic. "A dirty carpet is the ideal place for bacteria and germs to multiply and grow...Vacuuming helps pull up a good amount of that stuff, but not all."

    For this reason, the news source recommends getting carpets professionally cleaned once or twice a year, especially if you've got kids or pets.

    An alternative is to get to the source of the problem. Installing a professional-grade air purifying system is by far the most effective means to remove over 99 percent of all particulate matter that would eventually get trapped between carpet fibers.

    The top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus combines four advanced filtration technologies to deliver high-performance results. Its HyperHEPA filter stage is the most advanced filter of its kind and can capture particles ten times smaller than standard HEPA models.

  • Study: Allergies in small children have doubled in 10 years

    A recent study found that the presence of allergies in children under 5 has just about doubled in the past decade, with emergency treatments for severe allergic reactions increasing seven-fold, StaffNurse.com reports.

    "The lack of exposure to potential allergens since childhood appears to reduce the chances that our immune system recognises what is safe and what is not, even triggering a response against proteins found in foods generally tolerated by the body," Professor Maria Antonella Muraro told the news source, citing exposure to cigarette smoke as a potential contributing factor.

    Fortunately, a medical-grade air purifying system, such as those carried by FreshAirPro, can tackle both allergen-inducing airborne contaminants and the pollutants that can cause them, such as smoke and other harmful gases and chemicals.

    The top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus comes with four advanced filtration technologies to tackle well over 99 percent of all particulate matter. Its HyperHEPA filter stage is the most advanced filter of its kind and can tackle molecules up to ten times smaller than machines equipped with standard HEPA technology.

  • A 1-2-3 guide to maintaining the freshest indoor air for your home

    In light of the end of February, which, if you didn't know, was celebrated across America as the fourth annual National Care About Your Indoor Air Month, here's a basic pocket guide to make sure you achieve (and maintain) the freshest possible air for your home.

    According to Benzinga.com, it's essential to identify the sources of indoor pollution, eliminate or reduce them, and to take steps to maintain air cleanliness. The second step, the news source reports, often involves dehumidifying, sealing cracks, fixing gas appliances and using allergy-friendly carpeting and bedding.

    Once any urgent concerns have been taken care of, the most effective means toward achieving the third step is by installing a professional-grade air purifying system.

    While the news source recommends using this in conjunction with a HEPA vacuum cleaner, the majority of FreshAirPro's top-rated brands are equipped with HEPA or HyperHEPA filters to effectively remove more than 99 percent of all particulate matter. A top-selling machine, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, is an efficient means of removing a full range of airborne contaminants.

  • Debunking Legionnaire's disease (and what happened at the Playboy Mansion)

    While it's true that Legionnaire's disease hasn't received this much media attention since the landmark 1976 outbreak that left 221 ill and 34 dead, the same bacteria that recently caused a stink at the Playboy Mansion affects thousands of Americans each year.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that between 8,000 and 18,000 people in the U.S. are hospitalized per annum due to Legionnaire's Disease, though according to Environmental-Expert.com, this might not be an accurate portrait of the problem, as experts believe that most cases go undiagnosed.

    According to the news source, the bacteria that causes the disease can be found in water (as was later discovered at Hugh Hefner's palace), but the actual transmission occurs when people breathe in contaminated vapors.

    Perhaps it wouldn't have hurt to install an air purifying system or two at the Mansion. Those who wish to help prevent such outbreaks and improve their overall respiratory health have every reason to look into a medical-grade purifier from FreshAirPro, many of which are proven to remove over 99 percent of particulate matter from the air as well as a range of harmful viruses and bacteria.

  • How does your city rank on the national pollen count?

    The big spring allergy offender is virtually upon us, but some areas of the nation will be hit worse than others when it comes to the concentration of pollen in the air.

    According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Daytona Beach, Florida, is ranked number one on The Weather Channel's national pollen count, and the Sunshine State as a whole is ranked in four of the top six worst-affected areas nationwide.

    Regardless of whether you're in the Floridian hot-bed or high and dry in another part of the country, seasonal allergies affect a significant part of the population each year, driving many to look for all forms of relief.

    One of the most effective ways to combat airborne allergens is to install a professional grade air purifying system in your home.

    The AllerAir 5000 Exec is an extremely popular and well-trusted purifying system. With 18 pounds of activated carbon, the 5000 Exec is substantially effective at neutralizing and absorbing harmful airborne gases, chemicals and odors. Additionally, its medical-grade HEPA technology removes at least 99.97 percent of all particulate matter from the air.
