Air Purification and Air Cleaners for Allergy Relief

Using an air purifier saved me many a sleepless night from sneezing and wheezing. Treating the air using an air purifier is a major step for you to eliminate airborne-based allergies and asthma attacks.

Here are several general considerations:

  • Your allergies are an immune system reaction to “outsiders”. Almost everything except air, and some food aroma, falls into that category.

  • For best results look for a 5-7 technology air purifier. That’s because you don’t always know whether your allergies are triggered by dust, mold, mildew, pollen, dander, etc.

  • Treat the bedroom to give your immune system rest instead of making it deal with dust, mold, pollen, etc. all night.

    The technology recommend by Doctors to prevent allergies is;

    1. HEPA – for animal dander, pollen, dust

    2. UV – for killing mildew, mold, viruses, bacteria etc.

    3. TiO2 – which enhances UV about 1,000%

    4. Washable Pre-Filter – this captures the big hair, etc. and saves the life of the HEPA.

    5. Activated Carbon – for chemicals

    6. Timed Ozone – Use a low dose in the room (0.025 PPM is healthy) a few hours before bed to knock out mold, mildew, etc. Find a unit that has timed ozone as too much can irritate the lungs.

    7. Negative Ion – to capture additional toxins/pollutants in the air

    8. Photo Catalytic – to attract and capture some toxins

    Some of the name Brand “Infomercial" Units like Oreck and Ionic Breeze are over-priced and do not include HEPA, still considered the best for allergies by Immunologists and Allergists.

    Other things to consider mfor preventing allergic reactions: allergic preventive bedding materials and pillows, etc. You can even find these now in stores like Target).
