Air purifiers for astmatics and allergy suferers can remove mold spores and dust particles that cause irritation. High standard HEPA filters, dehumidifier/air purifiers and filtered exhaust blowers.
For many people spring means the start of many months of suffering. But there are actions that can be taken to mitigate the symptoms of allergies.
1. See your doctor before the season starts so that you have your medication right before the allergies start.
2. Get used to checking the pollen count on a daily basis so that you can plan your day.
3. Avoid drying clothes outside when the count is high as the pollen with stick to the clothes.
4. Plan outdoor activities after any rain as the pollen count is lower after a shower.
5. When you come home change your clothes so that you are not wearing clothes with pollen indoors and allowing the pollen to spread around the house.
6. Spring clean the house before spring so you are not sneezing and suffering whilst disturbing dust.
7. Clean mould in the bathroom regularly to avoid the spread of mould spores.
8. Ensure you have good ventilation in the bathroom and kitchen to remove excess moisture to avoid damp.
9. Lower damp levels mean less mould spores and dust mites, if necessary buy a dehumidifier to reduce moisture levels.
10. Make your bedroom an allergy free haven where you can rest and get a good night's sleep.
Air purifiers provide a solution that can provide relief from these allergens.
Always choose the right air purification equipment to suit the allergy (filter type) and room size (units capacity), thus improving the air quality in a home by selecting the right product to suit your personal needs.
Ventilation and temperature are not the only environmental factors that matter when determining a room's comfort, air quality is a significant quality that determines occupant health.
Air purifiers can filter harmful particles from the surrounding space, with the help of advanced technologies.
High-Efficiency Particulate (HEPA) filters are ultra-fine traps, which prevent dust, mites and other airborne matter from being recirculated into a room.
This technology is common to most air purifier models on the market, but it is not the only air cleaning method found in these machines.
To maximise the effects of an air purifier, place it in an air-conditioned room with closed doors and windows.
Other notable features that can be found in today's air purifiers include activated carbon filters and ultraviolet light emitters.
The former is capable of adsorbing the molecules of harmful gases, such as cigarette smoke and foul odours, whereas the latter sees the use of ultraviolet lamps that sanitise airborne micro organisms, including germs and viruses.
Some air purifiers even double as humidifiers. which allows them to relieve respiratory distress caused by dry environments.
Portable Air Scrubbers carry air filtration to an even higher level than negative air machines by utilising 3-stage Filtration. This includes two particulate Filters, a carbon adsorption Filter and a HEPA filter making them ideal for mould abatement applications. They also utilise more powerful blowers that can pull high volumes of air through dirty Filters to maintain sufficient airflow and negative pressure.
Air scrubber are also more portable than negative air machines and are designed so one person can transport them. Some models also include built-in stair climber and dollies to enhance portability in addition, portable air scrubber can be operated using three different methods: recirculation, negative pressure, and air cleaning in remote areas, making them extremely versatile machines for a wide range of applications.
A) Portable air scrubber utilise four stages of progressively efficient filters to remove particulate and gaseous contaminants and odours from the air:
Two particulate pre-filters remove visible particles and protect the carbon and HEPA filters from premature loading. The first stage is a 1" deep disposable filter for capturing larger particles. The second stage is a 2" deep pleated filter that captures most remaining visible (10+ micron) particles.
The third stage is an activated carbon filter that removes odours and captures gases and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from smoke, moulds, coatings, paints and adhesives by absorption.
The final stage is a HEPA filter with a minimum particulate efficiency of 99.97% at 0.3 microns.
These filters are designed to capture microscopic particulates and bio aerosols (including metal fumes, asbestos fibres, lead dust, smoke particles, bacteria, and mould and fungal spores) that pass right through other filters.
This level of filtration often eliminates the need for final cleaning and dust removal after construction and renovation jobs.
A) Portable air scrubber can be utilised using three different methods of operation: recirculation, negative pressure, and remote location cleaning.
Portable air scrubber can be utilised to continuously filter and re-circulate air within a local area to provide general air cleaning.
Recirculation is used to capture airborne contaminants generated by manufacturing processes and during disaster restoration, construction, and renovation projects in unoccupied buildings.
This method is also effective for protecting parts or products from contaminants that settle out of the air and for reducing exposure to unpleasant odours from paintings and coatings.
With user-friendly and versatile features, the RX 500 Air Scrubber is ideal for handling indoor air quality needs on every restoration job.
Any job that involves sewage, mold, or fire damage clearly involves significant amounts of particulates and smelly gasses as a direct result of the damage itself. RX1500 The RX 1500 and RX3000 are recommended for larger areas.
The award-winning APCO system (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation) represents an entirely new type of air purifier The APCO unit is installed in the ductwork of the central air system where it scrubs the air as is passes by. By using a unique combination of UVC light and activated carbon, APCO achieves unmatched germicidal and odor reduction effectiveness without producing any harmful ozone. APCO is particularly effective at reducing odor-causing and potentially toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which include toxic chemical vapors like formaldehyde and toluene.

SWEDISH COMPANY LIGHTAIR recently introduced the filter-free air purification system lonFlow 50, based on lonFlow technology to improve indoor air quality, in the Middle East.
The innovation can be used in households, offices and schools as well as laboratories, high-tech industry, food production as well as in whole buildings.
Available in five models, including a compact ceiling mounted air purifier, The Lightair lonFlow technology uses a two pole ionizing technique. By using 110V or 220V and very low strength of current 50 mA, the technology is capable through a cascade of diodes and capacitors to accelerate an extremely high voltage of more than 200.000 eV.
This enables the extremely high production of several billion electrons per second, which means mean several billion negative ions per second. Consequently, the particle reduction is massive as the number of ions produced corresponds to number of particles charged and collected in a certain time.
The enormous production of ions makes it possible to effectively distribute the negative charge into all corners of a room, which means that the air in the entire room will be cleaned from particles not only the air closest to the device.
LIGHTAIR lonFlow 50 air purifier effectively removes airborne particles from 0.01-1.0 pm. It is especially efficient eliminating the smallest and most dangerous particles (nano particles below 0.1 pm), but it also removes larger particles (1.0-25.0 pm) at a reasonable rate.
The negative ions attach to the positively charged pollution particles in the air, such as from dust, pollen allergens, smoke, car fumes, pat dander, bacteria, mould, viruses, etc. It is especially effective in removing the smallest particles in the air, usually referred to as fine particles.
These are considered the most hazardous to one's health. The collector will be covered by particles and slowly change colour as it becomes more and more dirty. When necessary, the collector can easily be removed and washed clean in water and washing-up liquid.
