Help at hand for longest hay fever season for decades
News reports this week reveal that hay fever sufferers are currently enduring their longest season for more than two decades thanks to the topsy turvy British summer.
Sneezing, coughing, congestion, breathing problems, itchy eyes- all are symptoms of allergies like hay fever, but also asthma, conjunctivitis and rhinitis. And all can be debilitating for the sufferer.
Although many allergies are much worse at this time of year, these days people are affected all year round.
Aside from the usual medicinal treatments, which bring with them their own side effects, there is a more holistic approach to combating allergies.
EcoAir’s portable domestic dehumidifiers help with allergies by controlling and reducing humidity and preventing mould which causes dust mites in the home.
Allergens like dust and pollen thrive in damp or humid environments but by using a dehumidifier you can dry out the air in your home to reduce allergy symptoms.
High humidity levels exacerbate symptoms for allergy sufferers because the air becomes heavy with allergens which are then absorbed through airways, eyes, nose etc.
A dehumidifier works by evaporating and absorbing the moisture from the indoor air to make it dry and clean. Modern homes are especially prone to damp and humid air because of central heating systems. The unpredictable British weather also makes controlling humidity difficult with many people now affected by allergies throughout the year, not just in the warmer months.
In summary, our dehumidifiers can help ease the symptoms of allergies as they improve the indoor air quality by reducing moisture levels.
