Air Purifiers

  • The dangers of mold

    Many people have mold in their homes and don't even know it - and it may be affecting their quality-of-life. Mold can cause symptoms such as wheezing, eye and skin irritation and sinus congestion, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). However, those are just the minor symptoms. Mold can actually pose a severe threat to those most susceptible, including asthma attacks, fever and lung infections.

    Depending on the type of growth, mold can be extremely difficult to get rid of. If it's just growing on wall surfaces, you can clean it pretty easily. But mold can grow in heating ducts, inside walls and in the ceiling - making it incredibly tricky and expensive to clean. According to The New York Times, it can cost tens of thousands of dollars to rid your home of a critical mold problem.

    One can significantly reduce airborne mold spores in the home by using an air purification system which contains true HEPA filtration. FreshAirPro sells only the most well respected brands, such as IQAir. The IQAir HealthPro Series includes purifiers that can clear your home from a wide array of irritants down to .003 microns in size. That includes volatile organic compounds (VOCs), allergens, air pollution and smoke. Don't let a mold allergy keep you sick in bed. Clear your air before it's too late.

  • Choosing the right air purifier

    Unfortunately, if you don't have an air purifier in your home, the only filtration that air is getting is through your lungs. This means that all the toxins, allergens, chemicals and bacteria are going right into your system for your body to fight.

    Air purifiers aren't just for people with severe allergies or other pulmonary ailments. They can improve your overall health and wellness and keep you from getting sick. If you're thinking about getting an air purifier but don't know which one to choose, there are a few simple steps to find out exactly what you need.

    You should choose a purifier based on what your primary concern is. Microbes, odors, chemicals and particulates all tend to be airborne, making people sick all the time.

    Microbes include germs, viruses, bacteria and mold, while particulates include most allergens like dust, pollen and pet dander. Chemicals in the air are called volatile organic compounds, or VOC, and can include fumes from paint or nail polish remover, cigarette smoke and other more harmful substances. Odors can be extremely unpleasant at best and toxic to the health at worst, as is the case with car exhaust and formaldehyde.

    While shopping for the right air purifier, look for things like a medical-grade HEPA filter or stages containing activated carbon to better understand what you'll be protected from. However, why not just protect yourself from all of these dangers with one of the best purifiers on the market. The IQAir GC VOC, which is available through FreshAirPro, is perhaps one the most efficient filtration systems for personal or commercial use. It takes care of all your purifying needs and can even rid the air of 99.97 percent of all particles .3 microns in size.

  • Mold counts are sky high in Chicago

    The Fall 2011 allergy season is bad all-around - people from the East Coast to the West Coast and everywhere in between are likely to notice increased allergy symptoms that will last up to a few weeks later than usual. Many think these problems are specific to ragweed, but unfortunately, it seems that in many parts of the country, the mold count is up significantly, causing sneezing and wheezing among indoor allergy sufferers.

    Currently, Chicago's mold count is an alarming 54,000 spores per cubic meter, according to the Chicago Sun Times. This is well over a safe count and according to the news source, it's the third time already this year that Chicago has been on high alert for mold.

    Mold can cause allergy sufferers to notice symptoms such as headaches, sinus infections and fatigue. If you have allergies, you can alleviate some of your symptoms with a top-quality air purifier like those available at FreshAirPro.

    The AllerAir AirMedic+ Vocarb comes highly recommended among allergists because its advanced filtration system works at a higher level than the many purifiers on the market that only use standard HEPA filters. It even has an advanced UV light option that kills airborne mold mycotoxins, bacteria and viruses.

  • A fresh start for school with FreshAirPro

    If your child has asthma and allergies, there are many things you can do around the home to keep symptoms to a minimum. During summer months, many children see a reduction in symptoms because the circulation of fresh air helps reduce the instance of irritants in the air. However, once school starts, all the efforts you made to keep your little one's sneezing and wheezing to a minimum seem to go out the window.

    Possible classroom triggers include class pets, hairspray and perfume, chalk dust or even secondhand smoke on staff and students' clothing.

    Be sure your child is prepared for the classroom by reminding him of allergy triggers.

    Make sure your home is as trigger-free as possible. One way to ensure a hypoallergenic home is to use top-quality air purifiers like those available at FreshAirPro. Try an energy-efficient model like the BlueAir ECO10 Air Purifier. This special filtration system uses up to 95 percent less energy than others of its kind, yet it still has the ability to clear the air of 99.97 percent of all particles .3 microns in size or larger. Keep your home allergy-free with FreshAirPro.

  • Dust mites and asthma

    Dust mites may be too small to see with the naked eye, but they make a big impact on the lives of allergy sufferers. In fact, new findings by researchers at the University of Melbourne suggest that dust mite sensitivity in toddlers is strongly linked with the development of asthma in childhood.

    "Our study did not show [that] house dust mite[s] caused asthma, but it highlighted a strong correlation between sensitivity and more severe [wheezing] and asthma," explained Dr. Caroline Lodge, head of the study.

    The results were significant. Seventy-five percent of the participants who tested positive for dust mite allergies as infants developed asthma by age 12, compared with only 36 percent who did not test positive for dust mites.

    Air purifiers, like those available through FreshAirPro, can filter those irritating particles out of the air you breathe and keep your allergy and asthma symptoms under control. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is our best-selling air purifier, and with its HyperHEPA filtration system, it's easy to see why. While most purifiers can only capture particles .3 microns in size, the IQAir HealthPro Plus can filter ultra-fine particles as small as .003 microns in size, which is smaller than a virus.

  • Indoor air pollution

    Most people associate air pollution with smog and other outdoor pollutants, but household air pollution can be a major problem that triggers allergy and asthma symptoms. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, asthma has been a fast-growing problem in the last 20 years. As early as 1990, indoor air pollution was labeled a high-priority health risk by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencey (EPA).

    As such, it's important to treat the air in your household and limit the amount of pollutants and allergens you and your family track into your home.

    To reduce air pollution, you should be sure to keep the house ventilated and control sources of pollution. Our professional-grade air purifiers are extremely helpful in filtering pollutants and allergens out of the air you breathe.

    The AllerAir AirMedic MCS is one of the most effective purifiers for those with multiple chemical sensitivity and allergies. It features a medical-grade HEPA filter to remove even the tiniest particles. This eco-friendly filter which uses no neoprene, styrofoam, caulking or glue will make you feel good about your health and your part in helping the environment.

  • How pollen allergies relate to certain food allergies

    Many people who suffer from hay fever may also be allergic to certain fruits, vegetables, nuts or spices. This condition is known as pollen-food allergy syndrome.

    If you have a pollen allergy, you may notice that taking a bite out of an apple leaves your mouth itchy or tingly. Other common foods related to this type of allergy include hazelnuts, peaches, pears, raw potatoes, bananas and tomatoes - to name a few.

    Symptoms can range from a slight annoyance to swelling of the throat or anaphylactic shock. The allergy occurs because proteins in the fruits and vegetables are similar to the proteins in their pollen. Many report symptoms only when these foods are consumed raw.

    Those who suffer from cross-related allergies are often extremely discouraged from having to deal with the nasal and respiratory symptoms from pollen in addition to the food allergy. The good news is, you can reduce many of your airborne allergy symptoms, at least in your home.

    Our professional-grade air purifiers can rid the air in your home of common allergens. One such product, AllerAir AirMedic+ Vocarb, is specifically designed to control allergens and other particles that exacerbate allergies and asthma. Its advanced, medical-grade HEPA filtration technology performs at a higher level than in purifiers that only use standard HEPA filters.

  • Tips for fighting fall allergies

    With fall quickly closing in, ragweed and pollen allergies are out of control. There are simple and natural ways to keep allergy symptoms at bay, however.

    Keep your windows up while driving, as this can be one of the worst places to experience symptoms.

    Don't use window fans to cool your room down if you suffer from allergies, as they can actually pull allergens like pollen into your room. To clean the air of existing allergens, consider purchasing an air filtration system. FreshAirPro sells the best brands in the clean air industry, such as IQAir.

    The HealthPro Plus by IQAir is one of the best air purifiers available today. While most air purifiers can only remove particles larger than .3 microns, IQAir's HealthPro Plus features the HyperHEPA filtration system, which can actually filter particles as small as .003 microns in size.

    Using a neti pot daily to irrigate sinuses is also usually very helpful to those suffering from nasal and sinus-related allergy symptoms.

    Enjoy the weather this fall without the terrible allergies that usually keep you confined indoors.

  • Insurance companies not covering prescription allergy medications

    About 40 million Americans suffer from indoor or outdoor allergies, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Unfortunately for many allergy-sufferers, several insurance companies have stopped covering prescription allergy medications, according to the Carroll County Times.

    Those who once relied on prescriptions to ease their symptoms are now turning to over-the-counter drugs, many of which are not effective in relieving their moderate to severe sore throats, congestion and itchy eyes.

    Because of this, many brands that were once prescription-only only have begun to develop over-the-counter medications.

    Allergy-sufferers will benefit from keeping the air in their homes free from irritants with air purifiers from Fresh Air Pro. The Airgle 750 is one of its most advanced models, and it had the highest Clean Air Delivery Rate out of 159 other leading purifiers. It can remove everything from dust, pollen and mold to tobacco smoke.

    If your over-the-counter medication isn't doing the trick, use an air purifier to clear your home of the allergens that make you feel terrible.

  • Sending your child back to school with allergies

    Many parents dread sending their children back to school with allergies. It's as if everything they've worked so hard for at home goes right out the window when they step into the classroom. Allergies and asthma can be exacerbated by everyday things like chalk dust, and many old school buildings are filled with mold.

    Making your home as allergy-free as possible is the first step to treating your child. Air purifiers, like the top-of-the-line purifiers sold at Fresh Air Pro, are extremely helpful for combating indoor allergies. The AllerAir 5000 Exec is an excellent choice to rid the air of pollutants, chemicals and allergens. Its medical-grade HEPA filter can remove 99.97 percent of airborne particles as small as .3 microns.

    Talk to your child about the differences he might experience in symptoms between home and school. Be sure the school nurse has all of his medications and inhalers on hand, and tell your child how important it is that he keep his inhaler on him at all times.
