Dust allergy

The air purifier or the solution against dust and dust mite allergies

In our homes, we are not protected from environmental pollution and fine particles. The air inside our apartment or house is 9 times more polluted than the air outside.

Outdoor pollution enters our homes and mixes with fine particles created by the use of household and cleaning products, dust mites, kitchen odors and furniture particles. 

All these pollutants are the cause of a large number of allergies that increasingly affect the health of a large number of people, regardless of age and location.

Dust and the role of the air filter

The accumulation of dust produced by work, cleaning in a building or simply in new housing, can lead to respiratory difficulties (asthma) for some and be the cause of allergies for others. Today, millions of people in the world suffer from respiratory discomfort (asthma) and dust allergy.

When we talk about dust allergy, we are referring to the dust mites found in dust. Dust mites are natural hosts in our environment, they look like small spiders and because of their size (a few microns) they are invisible to the naked eye.

Dust mites, or more specifically their faeces, come in contact with the skin and respiratory mucous membranes in the place where an individual sleeps, in touch with the textile of a bedding. They hide mainly in mattresses of any composition (wool, cotton, foam), carpeting, furniture wood and their molds, thick curtains, toys and stuffed animals found in a child's room, etc.
