Mold Allergy: Improve Your Well-Being with AIR ET SANTÉ air purifiers

The monitoring of pollens and molds in ambient air established in 2017, reveals that molds are responsible for 10% of respiratory allergies.

Often invisible, molds are microscopic fungi declined in thousands of species, capable of colonizing a large number of materials and surfaces. To reproduce, they release large quantities of spores into the air. It is these spores which are responsible for mold allergy. Suspended in the air, their spores are inhaled by the body, which causes allergic manifestations such as allergic rhinitis and asthmain sensitized people.

Molds also release smelly compounds, recognizable by their unpleasant musty odor, which can be a nuisance in your daily life.

What are the sources of mold allergy?

Throughout the year, molds grow naturally around us. They can be found on our clothes and in dust, and can grow both indoors and outdoors on a wide variety of surfaces such as fabrics, wood, walls and gardens.

In addition, humid places favor their proliferation. Therefore, they multiply easily in poorly ventilated bathrooms, near cooking areas or next to a water infiltration.

That's why it's important to properly maintain your ventilation system to reduce the humidity level in your home. Also, consider ventilating humid and moist areas such as bathrooms and laundry rooms or after steam producing activities such as cooking.


How can I prevent the development of mold allergy symptoms?

Mold spores are the allergens responsible for the manifestations of the organism. Knowing that we spend more than 80% of our lives indoors, it is necessary to eliminate them from your home as a priority.

To do this, the first step is to decontaminate the surfaces infected by mold. The second step is to purify the air that surrounds you to permanently eliminate the spores that cause your allergy.

Using an air purifier in your home will help improve your daily comfort and prevent the appearance of mold allergy symptoms.

Thanks to a high-performance filtration system based on a combination of 3 medical-grade filters (pre-filter, HEPA 13 filter and activated carbon filter), the AIR ET SANTÉ air purifiers eliminate 100% of mold and mildew in the indoor air, as well as the volatile organic compounds responsible for unpleasant odors.
