Spring is here and along with beautiful weather comes the triggers for hay fever. Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) is caused from the pollen produced by flowers, trees, grasses, and weeds. In Australia the pollen season can last for months increasing the exposure to allergens. When pollen is inhaled it creates inflammation in the nasal passages and eyes. This inflammation results in itchy and watery eyes, itchy throat and palate, nasal congestion, runny nose, and drainage in ears and throat. The fact is one in every five Australians will suffer due to excess pollen in the air.
While pollen is a major hazard in the air, a recent study by the WHO (2013) revealed indoor air pollution is a grave threat. As the result of indoor air pollutions, such as smoke and cleaning chemicals, respiratory problems have increased and have lead to more dangerous respiratory diseases, such as COPD or Asthma. In order to improve the quality of indoor air an air purifier is recommended. People already face enough hazards from outdoor pollution. A Blueair air purifier system from Aquafresh will ensure virtually all pollutions are eliminated from the indoor air. Improving indoor air quality will reduce your family’s risk of exposure to unnecessary indoor pollutants.
In spring Australians have a hard time avoiding exposure to pollen but indoor pollutants can be reduced. While it is much harder to reduce outdoor air pollutants, the pollutants found in the indoor air can be permanently eliminated through the use of a quality air purifier system. A Blueair air purifier system employs the Blueair’s HEPASilent filter technology removing almost all micron particles from the air. At Aquafresh customers can purchase their Blueair air purifier system and begin to enjoy an indoor environment free from impurities reducing the risk for allergies and respiratory problems.
