Why use air treatment
in a typical home?
While we all love the sunshine, for those who suffer from allergies, the increased pollen and dust the warmer weather brings can be too much to handle. Regularly cleaning your home and washing linen and fabrics, which can house dust is key, and don't forget to turn on the extractor fan when cooking to help reduce grease and steam in the air, where dust and pollen are likely to linger.
Air quality is important for family health. When the air becomes too dry, or too moist, it can become unpleasant, and for some individuals threaten their health. Air treatment works to ensure that the quality of the air is optimised for your lifestyle and needs…
During the spring and summer months, pets are likely to spend more time outdoors, where pollen and other allergy triggers can stick to their fur coats. This means an increase in the pollen and dander floating around your home and in the air. Make sure you bathe and groom your pets regularly and wash their bedding in hot water to avoid additional irritants indoors.
Fight off dust mites, and reduce risks of allergies and asthma.
Excessive moisture in the room can increase the amount of dust mites, which in turn can lead to an increase in allergy and asthma issues. A dehumidifier will keep humidity levels under control, which will make it harder for dust mites to multiply.
Moisten the air
Modern rooms and central heating can seal and dry air making it uncomfortable. Humidifiers and diffusers reintroduce a controlled, low level of humidity to balance air quality. They can also be used to introduce a pleasant scent with the addition of essential oils.
Control condensation and damp. Prevent mould and mildew.
These are very common and perhaps the most visible side effects where humidity levels are too high. A musty smell in the room usually indicates the first sign of a room with poor air circulation and humidity issues. Besides the not-so-pleasant smell, mould can also put your health at risk if you breathe in the spores. A dehumidifier will noticeably reduce condensation and damp, and prevent mould.
Dry your clothes faster
We all know it can take a long time for clothes to fully dry on a clothes airer, especially during winter. By diminishing humidity in the room, a dehumidifier will speed up the drying process and leave you to enjoy clean and dry clothes sooner.
Another good tip is to get an air purifier to help filter the air in your home. With an active carbon filter, specially designed to capture large dust particles and pollen, these help keep the air in your home clean – and you breathing easier.
