Habitat for Humanity recently teamed up with healthcare company Merck's Build Smart, Breathe Easier program to create a special asthma-friendly home for a family whose two young daughters have both been hospitalized numerous times because of their asthma. Many of the steps taken to create this home involved working to reduce airborne particles that can exacerbate severe asthma.
These changes involved installing hard flooring rather than carpeting for easier cleaning, special allergen-free paint and most importantly, powerful air filters to keep ventilation from bringing in pollution or toxins from outside.
If you have a child with asthma and you'd like to keep your home safe, consider installing an IQAir Perfect16 Whole House Air Purifier, available from FreshAirPro. This medical-grade air purifier boasts the highest possible industry rating for whole house air cleaning and filters 100 percent of all moving air in the home.
It removes up to 95 percent of most irritants, including bacterias, mold spores, pollens, pollutants and a variety of other airborne toxins. To protect your family and keep the air in your home cleaner than it ever has been, look to the medical-grade purifiers we sell at FreshAirPro.
