This product is $700+ tax and shipping. How many people reading your newsletter can afford that?! Sent from my iThingy > On Jun 1, 2020, at 4:22 PM, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America < firstname.lastname@example.org > wrote: > > Samsung’s Cube Air Purifier
I feel like products like the Samsung Cube air purifier are marketed to those of us who are asthmatics because we are desperate to breathe. And so many of us have severe allergies (and allergy induced asthma) that we try to spend money we don't have just to try to breathe - this isn't right - there have to be alternatives that are affordable - our medications alone are incredibly expensive. We spend hundreds, if not thousands covering our mattresses, buying special pillows, special air duct...
What is the best room air purifier for removing mold and dust from indoor air. I suffer from asthma and am looking to purchase for the upcoming winter months. Mold and dust are my primary allergies. Also how can you determine if there is mold in your home? I have a bedroom where windows were replaced several years ago and has a musty smell.
Always a good reminder! How do you clean outdoor and/or indoor trees? I hosed my outdoor house plant (A Norfolk Pine-- it isn't a true pine so Im hoping it isn't adding to my allergy issues like true pines might). I hosed it off really good and let it dry under my carport for a few days before I brought it in. It can hold small, light decorations/ornaments. I purchased a small fake tabletop tree this year. Im thinking each year I will use a wet soapy cloth and wipe each branch with it as I...
Shea - we do something similar with our live tree each year. We bring it home (this year it was curbside delivery!) and set it up on the deck outside in the tree stand. Then we give it a good shake (I stay in the house for this) and hose it down. We let it dry overnight before bringing it into the house. I'm not allergic to pine so it's more pollens and mold that might be clinging to the branches/needles. This seems to be sufficient for me. For artificial trees, off season storage is going...
How about no pets? That's a huge irritant for many. Please address that. Teachers bring their dogs to the school and kids who are allergic to dogs are getting really sick. People bring their dogs to stores all the time making asthmatics sick. Please address that issue. On Wed, Apr 21, 2021, 1:02 PM Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America < email@example.com> wrote:
@Ironmom316 You're right that this issue (bringing non-service animals into public places) needs practical solutions. This specific program mentioned above is meant to address allergens in the home. While, not having a dog in your house will certainly result in fewer allergens in the house, there's nothing that can be done prevent private citizens from keeping pets their homes. That said, we (AAFA) will continue to find ways to help address what we can.
Welcome, Suprabha to the AAFA community. An interesting question. CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® allergen-barrier mattress or pillow covers prevent dust mite colonies from booming in your bed. They will still live in your sheets, pillowcases and blankets, but with regular washing with hot water, you can keep the numbers down. Do Antibacterial mattresses make a difference? This would be a great question for Ask the Allergist. or a new topic in the Allergy Support forum.
I had a big issue that which mattress would be better for dust mites. The Magniflex Mattress website gave me a conclusion that Antibacterial mattresses are the best for dust mites. What do you suggest?
Though I live in an apt, which has no attic nor basement, in Florida. Recently, I bought a new, updated extra large Honeywell HEPA air cleaning machine. The unit is off the floor, on top of flat box, to help the unit clean the air in my room. Its quiet, this HEAPA unit has 4 settings, more quiet running than older Honeywell units. Even though it Nov. 2021 - here in Orlando, FL its warm,, with cold weather front coming down this weekend. I don't run the HEPA air filter machine when its cooler...
@Kathy P I did purchase it . I got it to try because Of the promise of allergy free and no scent . I think it works well . However the bottle needs to be reworked . It leaks easily from the top . Also when you pour you need a funnel . Or it comes out way to fast . They should of designed it better .
This is awesome information that we can hand out to our clients from a credible source. My husband and I operate an air duct cleaning business. We live in Michigan, so we get a lot of humidity and people often forget to turn their humidifier off after the winter. We have witnessed black mold and very poor indoor air quality in the majority of homes here. Our main goal is to help improve indoor air quality and raise awareness. Thank you for writing this article.
Welcome to the AAFA community @Amberlee84 . You may also be interested in 3 Ways Humidity Affects Asthma . Would you consider starting a new topic about using your HVAC to manage Asthma triggers? That would be a fine addition to the Asthma Support forum.
