  • Atlanta suffers from smog, dangerous pollution levels

    Pollen count is often a cause for concern during the spring season, but Atlanta is now dealing with another culprit that's causing chaos in the air: smog. Recently, the city received a Code Orange warning from the Environmental Protection Division aimed at notifying residents of dangerous pollution levels in the atmosphere.

    Children and people with respiratory conditions were most vulnerable to poor air conditions, according to the Atlanta Constitution-Journal. During this time last year, the city exceeded federal standards by double the amount of acceptable pollutants. The ozone forecasting season runs from May 1 to September 30.

    Experts recommend avoiding strenuous activities outdoors and to carpool in order to reduce emissions. Smog can complicate breathing, regardless of whether an individual suffers from a respiratory condition.

    Air purifiers can help you remove contaminants from your home. The IQAir HealthPro Plus contains a HyperHEPA filter, which is ideal for individuals who suffer from asthma or allergies. This air purifier can trap particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus can also remove pet dander, pollen and musty odors from up to 900 square feet of space.

  • Columbia County brings in professionals to reduce air pollution

    Clean air is not a priority in every community, but legislators in Columbia County, Georgia, are making an effort to reduce pollution levels for the sake of its residents. The county's director of construction and maintenance services, Matt Schlachter, recently announced that professional help is being enlisted to address the growing level of air pollution, according to The Augusta Chronicle.

    "We understand we are very close to the limit, so we are taking steps to reduce air pollution," Schlachter told the news source.

    In July, the Environmental Protection Agency is expected to release higher standards for pollutants that reach people at the ground level.

  • Sacramento residents suffering from strong winds, allergies

    Many people across the country are already suffering from allergies, and in Sacramento, the situation is no different. Recently, gusty winds hit the California capital, spreading around pollen that had already fallen from the trees. As a result, more people are sniffling and sneezing with no relief in sight, according to the Sacramento Bee.

    "I thought we were going to get totally annihilated," local allergist Bradley Chipps told the news source. "This year's not quite as frenetic as I thought, but there's still the possibility it could get worse."

    Although medication can be used to treat allergies, some patients have to resort to monthly shots to control their symptoms.

    Individuals who are looking for a natural way to relieve their allergies indoors may want to consider purchasing an air purifier with a HEPA filter. This device can remove allergens from the air.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier may be especially helpful for those who are seeking relief from particles, such as pollen, dust and mold. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap allergens less than 0.3 microns in size.

  • Corpus Christi receives good ratings for clean air

    It can be difficult for individuals with respiratory health complications to live in regions with high levels of pollution, but Corpus Christi is one city where that won't be a problem. Federal data released by the American Lung Association shows that the Texas hub is home to some of the cleanest air in the country, according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

    "I think it's important that we let the community know we are doing things right," Kevin Kieschnick, city councilman, told the news source. "Our large industrial customers have invested in making their operations cleaner for all of us. We need to let our community know we have seen great results."

    Experts say that the good rankings are a result of using clean-burning fossil fuels and reducing the number of coal-burning plants.

    Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions, such as asthma, are not always lucky enough to live in regions with low levels of pollution. Air purifiers can help those who have health complications as a result of dust, pollen and other particles in the atmosphere.

  • Reducing air pollution in the workplace

    Recent studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency show that indoor pollution levels are approximately five times higher than those found outdoors due to contaminants from a variety of sources. Dusty cooling and heating systems, tracked-in soil and cleaning products are all to blame for the heightened levels, according to researchers.

    Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions can make their offices a more comfortable place to breathe by taking a few precautionary measures. First, scraper mats for shoes should be placed outside of the entry way to keep pollen and mold from being tracked indoors. Next, heating and cooling systems must be cleaned on a regular basis. Regularly using a vacuum with a HEPA filter can also help.

    To significantly lower your chances of breathing complications, purchase an air purifier for your workplace. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one air purifier that can dramatically reduce the number of contaminants in an office space.

    This purifier covers up to 900 square feet of space. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size, such as dust, pollen and pet dander.

  • World Asthma Day pushes for more research of the disease

    In an effort to raise awareness of asthma and other respiratory complications, World Asthma Day 2011 was held on May 3 to support further research into the condition. Approximately 77 percent of individuals who suffer from severe asthma have been hospitalized at least once due to the ailment. More information on asthma may be able to help patients cope with the disease better throughout their lifetime.

    "There is still no cure for asthma," says Tom Flanagan, chair of Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America national board of directors. "I think some people forget that asthma still kills over 4,000 people each year and it's a reminder that more work needs to be done."

    Individuals who suffer from asthma and need to maintain air quality throughout their homes to breathe easily may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. A device that operates with a HEPA filter can remove particles from the air that complicate breathing in people with respiratory conditions.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is one product that can increase the quality of life for individuals with asthma. The HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size. This includes smoke, dust, pollen and other irritants.

  • Madison improves air quality, reduces pollution

    Madison, Wisconsin was once regarded as one of the top 25 worst cities to breathe in, but it has made a better name for itself since 2009 when it was considered a haven for air pollution.

    Lisa MacKinnon, project coordinator for the Dane County Clean Air Coalition, recently said that Madison has improved since being named a city with poor air quality by the American Lung Association. Fine particle and ozone layer testing has revealed that pollution in the region has significantly decreased, according to The Capital Times.

    "While we can't take our improved air quality for granted and need to continue to take actions to reduce emissions for public health and the economy, it is also important to make sure people know we are going in the right direction," MacKinnon told Grass Roots, according to the news source.

    Individuals who have respiratory conditions and want to combat the effects of pollution may want to purchase an air purifier, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This device has a HyperHEPA filter that is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size.

  • Flooding can aggravate allergy symptoms

    Those who have recently experienced heavy rain or flooding may have other pressing needs on their minds - such as repairing any damage - but excess water isn't the only thing that may be a cause of concern. Standing water may lead to mold proliferation, which can aggravate allergy symptoms for some and create respiratory problems for others.

    "One of the biggest issues homeowners will face is what to do about flooded carpeting," allergist James L. Sublett, chair of the indoor environments committee for the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) told Sublett recommends removing the carpets to let them dry immediately and to check the underlying boards for any water damage.

    For a topline defense against any potential mold should it arise, homeowners should consider purchasing an air purifying system.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is widely trusted among consumers for its combination of four advanced filtration stages. Thanks to its HyperHEPA filter stage, the HealthPro Plus is capable of removing particles as small as .03 microns in size, 10 times the capability of standard HEPA models.

  • Rugs, not carpets, are the word for allergy-sufferers

    Those with allergies have likely been long-accustomed to finding effective strategies for reducing their symptoms, but it's important to keep in mind that the flooring of one's abode can have a large impact on the intensity of the symptoms experienced.

    If you suffer from heavy allergy symptoms, avoid living in a house or apartment that has wall-to-wall carpeting. Area rugs are a much better option, as they can be removed to be washed, leaving the existing floor free to be cleaned of any dust or particles that may have gotten trapped beneath it.

    As an additional measure, allergy-sufferers should consider investing in a high-quality air purifying system.
