  • Pollutants and your lungs: A microscopic breakdown

    While recent studies have revealed that air pollution is the leading cause of heart attacks, it may be difficult to gauge just how small the particles are that can lead to bodily harm, or which environments affect us the worst.

    According to the Daily Mail, spending time in traffic usually presents the largest risk factor, and it's generally recommended to find ways to spend less time on congested thoroughfares.

    Meanwhile, there are measures you can take to control the indoor air quality of your home. Installing an air purifying system is the most effective line of defense against pollution, allergens and a range of other respiratory ailments.

    Polluted air contains particles that are less than 10 microns wide, which is small enough to enter the lungs and cause inflammation, the news source reports. The IQAir HealthPro Plus, on other hand, comes with a HyperHEPA filter, the most advanced filter of its class, which is capable of tackling particulate matter as small as .003 microns in size. What's the advantage? You do the math.

  • Arm yourself against ragweed allergies (no matter how long they stick around this year)

    Of the countless people who suffer from allergies each year, a good amount fall prey to ragweed, what Ohama.com calls "the most debilitating of plant allergens."

    According to the news source, roughly 10 percent of Americans are ragweed-sensitive, and much to the chagrin of this segment of the population, ragweed season is only getting longer. Some areas of the country have come to experience at least 11 more days of annual misery over the last 15 years or so.

    There's little we can do in light of the changing seasons, but there is a good amount of control we can exercise over our immediate home environment.

    Installing a professional-grade air purifying system is a top-line defense against ragweed, pollen, pet dander, mold and a range of other allergens and airborne contaminants. An advanced model, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, has the capacity to effectively filter over 99 percent of particulate matter while simultaneously removing harmful chemicals and odors.

  • How an air purifier actually works to alleviate allergy symptoms

    Many of us with allergy symptoms may already know that installing a professional-grade air purifying system in our homes is among one of the most effective ways to breathe easy. However, some may still be unsure as to the reasons behind why they work.

    "Our homes are like enclosed spaces where we breathe in...the same air on a continuous basis," UK News Reporter explains. "Attacks that can [happen] very quickly may be caused by some of the common things found at home such as the dust and dust mites. The function of the allergy relief electronic air cleaner or air purifier is to purify the circulating air which you are breathing and eradicate all the floating particles which are behind the attacks."

    That being said, there's more than one way for a machine to do so. Many top-quality purifiers, such as the ones carried by FreshAirPro, combine two or more filtration technologies to deliver stellar performance.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one such machine - with four different techniques working together, this machine excels among the rest in eradicating over 99.9 percent of all airborne contaminants including dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mold, gases, odors, smoke and more. Its success is largely due to the activated carbon stage which effectively strips harmful chemicals and gases and its HyperHEPA filter, which is capable of catching particles 10 times smaller than most leading HEPA brands.

  • Protecting yourself against pollen this spring

    Not all of us are lucky when it comes to being genetically disposed to tackling allergies, but that doesn't mean we're entirely defenseless. The University of Maryland Medical Center has a few suggestions to help allergy-sufferers avoid pollen and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.

    The Center suggests that you "stay away from hay and barns, and avoid activities such as raking leaves and mowing the grass," according to HealthDay News. Additionally, you should "wear sunglasses to help keep pollen out of the eyes [and] when you come back indoors, shower and wash your hair to remove pollen. Close doors and windows during pollen seasons."

    Of course, there are only so many things we can do in the great outdoors, but your indoor space affords you a little more control over the quality of the air that you breathe.

    Installing a high-quality air purifying system is an excellent way to take matters into your own hands. Look to FreshAirPro's selection of top-rated, best-selling brands for a machine that can effectively remove over 99 percent of all particulate matter, including pet dander, pollen, mold, dust and more.

  • How to be one step ahead of your allergies this season

    By now, many allergy-sufferers have learned the yearly cycles by heart - when they'll start sneezing, when it'll finally stop, and when to begin expecting the worst again.

    However, there are a few measures to take to beat your allergies to the chase. If you know when to start expecting symptoms, you can take some preemptive steps to make sure you experience the best possible spring.

    According to The University of Maryland Medical Center, it's wise to begin taking allergy medications a week or two before the season starts, HealthDay News reports.

    Another way to get to the source of the problem is to install a professional-grade air purifying system in your home. Opting for a top-rated, best-selling brand like the IQAir HealthPro Plus can make the difference between contaminant-filled air and an indoor breathing experience that's virtually free of impurities. The HealthPro Plus comes with four advanced filtration technologies to effectively remove over 99 percent of pet dander, pollen, dust, mold and a range of other airborne contaminants.

  • Beating allergies to the chase: Preventative measures

    When grappling with seasonal allergies, we can either treat the symptoms or go straight to the cause, and it's arguably true that most people would prefer the latter, if only they knew the most effective methods for doing so.

    According to MSN Health & Fitness, pets, carpets and clutter can all work together to create a hostile environment for allergy-sufferers.

    "Carpeting is a reservoir for pollen because the tiny granules cling to carpet fibers," allergy and immunology professor James Sublett, M.D., told the news source. With clutter that collects dust and pets that bring in pollen from outside along with a sufficient amount of their own dander, some swift, preventative action is in order.

    Sublett recommends using a HEPA vacuum cleaner, though most of the top-market air purifiers carried by FreshAirPro come with a HEPA filter or higher, and they work to clear the air of a full range of allergens and contaminants. Get to the heart of poor indoor air quality with a top-rated model like the IQAir HealthPro Plus, which combines four advanced filtration techniques to deliver maximum results.

  • 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.
