  • What to do when your pet starts shedding

    Spring might mean a lot of things for your pet, including longer, pleasant walks, an increased bout of energy and, unfortunately for you, a higher rate of shedding.

    As your pet begins to shed its winter coat, you'll need to equip yourself with a topline defense to not only rid your indoor environment of allergy-inducing dander, but to ensure you're breathing the freshest air possible as you head into spring and summer.

    Fresh Air Pro carries the industry's best air purifiers, including the top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is a topline defense against a range of household contaminants for allergy-sufferers, those with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and health-conscious individuals. It combines four advanced filtration technologies to effectively tackle dust, dust mites, pollen, mold, pet dander, gases, smoke, odors and more, including its HyperHEPA filter stage, which employs the most advanced filter of its kind. The HyperHEPA filter is capable of filtering particles as small as .03 microns in size, 10 times the capability of standard HEPA models.

  • Allergies may prove to be genetic in many families

    Although the direct cause of allergies is not known, many researchers have determined that there may be a biological link between children and their parents. For three-year-old Jake Wolfe from Indianapolis, this could be bad news, according to the Indianapolis Star.

    Both of his parents, Eric and Lisa Wolfe, suffer from nearly 100 percent of seasonal allergies. The family is not alone - between 10 to 30 percent of adults suffer from hay fever. Approximately 40 percent of kids have the same allergic condition.

    "This year has been worse because of the extreme change in temperatures," Lisa Wolfe told the news source.

    Households who suffer from allergies, similar to the Wolfe family, can benefit from purchasing an air purifier. These devices remove particles from the air that can cause allergic reactions.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one of the most beneficial air purifiers on the market. The product has a HyperHEPA filter that can trap unseen particles, such as pollen, dust and mold spores. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is also ideal for homeowners who suffer from allergic reactions due to pet dander and cigarette smoke.

  • More allergy sufferers turning to shots for relief

    For some allergy sufferers, reactions are more severe than others. Aside from the occasional runny nose, many individuals are forced to endure itchy eyes and labored breathing during the allergy season. Pollen can be an ongoing burden for those with sensitivity to these airborne irritants, but allergy shots are offering relief for many, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Michelle Jason is one woman who carried nasal sinus spray everywhere with her and took three pills a day to control her allergies. Since enduring years of allergy shots, she told the Tribune that it has been worth the pain to enjoy the great outdoors.

    Those who want to avoid needles and control their seasonal allergies still have other options, such as air purifiers. With the right device, individuals can reduce their allergic reactions and make it easier to breathe indoors.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is ideal for allergy sufferers of all ages. The device can cover up to 900 square feet and quickly remove allergens from the air. Its HyperHEPA filter is ideal for trapping pollen and other small particles that may cause seasonal watery eyes and runny noses.

  • Cleanliness may be advancing allergies in Americans

    Approximately 60 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies on an annual basis, but experts say that reactions are becoming more common in people of all ages, according to the Evansville Courier and Press.

    Physicians believe that the increase in the number of allergy cases may be due in part to cleanliness. Because more people are making an effort to use hygienic products such as hand sanitizer, the immune system is being trained to attack foreign invaders. This includes pollen, which in turn results in allergic reactions.

    "[Allergies] can start anytime in life," Anne McLaughlin, an allergist and immunologist for Deaconess Clinic Gateway Health Center, told the news source. "It's a lifetime problem."

    Individuals who want to breathe easier in their household may want to consider purchasing an advanced air purifier such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This air purifier comes with a HyperHEPA filter that is designed to trap particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size. Homeowners can prevent pollen, smoke and pet dander from causing allergic reactions on a regular basis.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier covers up to 900 square feet. It is the ideal device for allergy and asthma sufferers alike who want relief from seasonal symptoms.

  • Allergy season expected to last 27 more days this year

    Allergy season is dreaded by many Americans who suffer from reactions due to pollen, ragweed and mold. Over-the-counter medications can relieve the symptoms of seasonal allergies, but individuals may have to cope for an extended period of time in the future.

    A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences says that allergy season will most likely last until October in northern regions of the United States. This is approximately 27 days longer than previous allergy seasons, as the unusual warm weather has encouraged the distribution of pollen from trees.

    Individuals who want to reduce the amount of medication they take to relieve their symptoms may want to purchase an air purifier to remove allergens from their living spaces.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is ideal for allergy sufferers and individuals with asthma as well. The air purifier can remove bacteria, pollen, dust and mold spores from rooms to help people breathe easier. The HyperHEPA filter is designed to catch ultra fine particles that are smaller than 0.3 microns in size. With the IQAir HealthPro Plus, those with allergies can find relief indoors without the need to take multiple medications.

  • Taking preventative measures to avoid allergy symptoms

    Allergy season is almost in full swing as more trees and flowers bloom, spreading pollen and other irritants. Many individuals search for relief in over-the-counter medications, but the answer to eliminating symptoms may not be at the pharmacy, according to the Washington Post.

    "Avoiding exposure [to pollen] on a day-to-day or hour-to-hour basis goes a long way," Mike Tringale, a spokesman for the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, told the news source.

    Taking a shower after spending an ample amount of time outdoors can prevent allergens from making their way inside of the house, the Post reports. Purchasing an air purifier can also do wonders for those who suffer from asthma and allergies throughout the year.

    The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one example of an air purifier that can rid up to 900 square feet of bacteria and other irritants, such as mold spores and pollen. The device has a built-in HyperHEPA filter designed to trap unseen particles that are responsible for causing allergic reactions.

    With the IQAir HealthPro Plus, homeowners can also remove irritating pet dander and air pollutants that can cause breathing complications.

  • Southeast expected to have a long, grueling allergy season

    With allergy season looming, people are already beginning to feel the effects of trees shedding their pollen. Recently, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America released a list of the 13 worst cities for allergies this season, bearing in mind that chronic indoor and outdoor allergies are the fifth leading chronic disease in the U.S., according to KGO Newstalk 810.

    Nine cities on the list hailed from the Southeast region of the country, with Knoxville, Louisville and Charlotte rounding out the top three. Jackson, Birmingham and Chattanooga also made it onto the list.

    Taking preventative steps can help cut down on the number of allergens that make their way indoors. Try to avoid drying clothes outside during the warm weather season. When possible, shower after spending time outdoors to remove pollen from skin and clothing, KGO Newstalk 810 says.

    Individuals who suffer from allergies throughout the year might want to consider purchasing a top market air purifier such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This device has a HyperHEPA filter, which is designed to trap particles that are as small as .03 microns in size. In turn, users can remove bacteria and particles, such as pollen and dust, from the air in their homes. This can help allergy and asthma sufferers breathe a little easier.

  • More St. Louis residents confusing allergies with the common cold

    During the spring season, many people come down the with the common cold as a result of temperature changes. However, more residents in St. Louis, Missouri, are mistaking colds for seasonal allergies. As temperatures continue to change from extreme heat to brisk weather on a whim, confusion is abundant, according to KPLR-11 News.

    Dr. H. James Wedner, an allergist from the Washington University School of Medicine, told the news station that the unusual weather pattern has many individuals thinking they have caught a cold. In actuality, tree pollen is already present in high concentrated amounts around the region. The allergist described the weather to the news source in one word: "Nuts."  

    "Normally what I do is I take walks in the park because you can look at the trees and you can find out what's been coming on," Wedner told the station. "It's been difficult."

    For allergy sufferers who want to improve the air quality in their homes and breathe a little easier, the IQAir HealthPro Plus can remove over 99 percent of all particulate matter that can contribute to allergy symptoms, including allergens such as pet dander, mold, dust, ragweed and pollen.

  • Colorado residents suffering from early spring pollen

    As spring begins to roll in, many Americans are beginning to feel the side effects of pollen, mold and ragweed floating through the air. In Colorado, dry eyes and itchy noses are abundant, but allergies are only expected to get worse.

    The region has recently experienced dry and windy weather, according to FOX-21 News. In turn, pollen and dust have been tossed into the air and have coated everything from streets to cars. Without rain, these small particles do not wash away. Instead, they cause sneezes and coughs for Americans with seasonal allergies and asthma.

    Robert Nathan, a doctor with Asthma and Allergy Associates in Colorado Springs, says that the cold weather has kept pollen around longerthis season. Allergy season typically begins in March and continues into the fall. Last month, the area saw notably high levels of tree pollen. Grass pollen is expected to kick up as soon as the weather becomes warm enough to start mowing the lawn.

    To avoid itchy eyes and runny noses this spring, families can purchase an air purifier to keep allergens from floating through their homes. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is among the most effective tools for getting rid of pet dander, dust and pollen.

  • HEPA air purifiers helping more Americans enjoy the spring season

    With the spring season comes warm weather and fresh breezes, but small particles in the air cause irritation for millions of allergy sufferers every year. A slight change in daily habits and installing air purifiers around your home can make the spring a more enjoyable experience for you and your family.

    High efficiency particulate air filters, also known as HEPA filters, can catch allergens and prevent them from making their way into the air. By installing an air purifier in your home, you can greatly reduce allergy symptoms caused by spring irritants such as pollen and ragweed.

    Encourage your household to remove their shoes prior to entering the house in order to keep particles from making their way into your home. Oftentimes, allergens will attach themselves to clothing worn outdoors and can be easily tracked inside.

    When you do your spring cleaning for the season, thoroughly vacuum every room and all of your rugs. This will remove any existing particles from the carpet fibers and reduce the possibility of allergic reactions.

    HEPA purifiers are also an efficient way to remove pet dander and germs from the air. To maintain your air quality and breathe a little easier this spring, consider purchasing an air purifier, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, for the upcoming season.
