Allergy and Asthma Prevention
Allergies or asthma can be a miserable experience for your child (and for you, too). It’s difficult to see your child struggling with these symptoms:
- shortness of breath
Untreated allergies can lead to other illnesses such as ear infections and sinusitis, so it’s important to deal with the allergy symptoms while removing the allergens from your child’s environment.
A good HEPA Air Purifier is essential for allergy and asthma prevention
Allergens and chemicals that can trigger asthma and allergies include
- animal dander
- dust mites
- smoke (from cigarettes and wildfires)
- heavy metals and chemicals in dust
- chemical off-gassing from carpets, particleboard, and pressed-wood furniture
- PCBs and plastics containing phthalates and BPA
Allergens can often be worse inside your home than outside, but there are things you can do to improve the quality of the air in your home. See Indoor Air Pollution: How to Protect Your Children
If you or your child are suffering from allergies or asthma, an effective air purifier is important, since it’s designed to remove the tiny particles that trigger an allergic reaction. HEPA filters are significantly better at removing these tiny particles than the ionic and electronic air cleaners.
There are many HEPA air purifier products on the market with a wide range of prices. Be cautious about the cheap ones since they probably won’t do a good job of removing the allergens. With air purification, you certainly get what you pay for.
HEPA filters will do a great job of capturing particles, but not the VOCs. To also remove formaldehyde and other VOCs, (chemical off-gassing) you will need an air purifier with additional technology. Air purifiers with plain activated carbon or granulated carbon are not as effective in removing VOCs.
