Breathe Easy with Vax Air Purifiers
A solution to indoor air pollution for asthma, hay fever & allergy sufferers
With longer, hotter and somewhat dustier summers, and cold and damp winters, people suffering from hay fever and other allergies might need some extra help to have a healthier, easier life.
‘Accredited by The British Allergy Foundation and Asthma UK*, VAX Air Purifiers are a convenient solution to indoor air pollution that removes 99% of potentially harmful airborne pollutants, bacteria and viruses which may help improve the health of your family, especially those living with asthma or allergies such as hay fever. Hay fever is a common allergic condition that affects one in five UK people at some point in their life, and around 5.4million people are currently receiving treatment for asthma in the UK. Approximately 21 million adults in the UK suffer from at least one allergy, and the UK is one of the top three countries in the world for the highest incident of allergy**.
What’s polluting our homes?
It is surprising to see just how many things can contribute to air pollution within the home, and how damaging these can be. Indoor air pollution comes in a number of different forms including:
- dust and dust mites
- mould spores
- second-hand smoke
- other allergens such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are released from plastics and furnishing, and products such as household paints andcrafting materials.
In fact, even the fragrances that we use to clean and make our homes smell fresh can react chemically to pollute the air, and ozone-based air fresheners can also cause indoor air pollution!
Dr Rob Hicks, medical doctor and author of ‘Beat your Allergies’, says: “Asthma attacks are frightening, and can be fatal if medication isn’t effective or medical assistance isn’t received quickly enough. Whilst most allergies tend not to be life-threatening, they can cause a multitude of uncomfortable and often distressing symptoms that make a sufferer’s quality of life worse.
“Whilst it is difficult to control the outdoor environment, taking steps to reduce your contact with allergens indoors is an effective way to help reduce asthma attacks, and alleviate allergy symptoms such as sneezing, a runny and blocked nose, itchy, watering eyes, and other lesser recognised symptoms such as itchy throat, headache, and fatigue. Removing airborne particles, such as pet dander and pollen, may help reduce the risk of an asthma attack or a flare-up of an allergy, so an air purifier can be a very useful addition to your allergy-controlling armoury.”
How can an air purifier help allergies?
An air purifier traps and removes potentially harmful particles from the air by drawing in dirty air, filtering and releasing cleaner, fresher air. Vax Air Purifiers may help your family breathe easier all year round, and be particularly helpful at peak times such as during the hay fever season.
The Vax Pure Air 300 Air Purifier is the UK’s most effective way to clean the air in your home, and it is three times more effective than other leading brands, and cheaper too!
Suitable for rooms up to 120m squared and with 5 speed settings, there is also a night mode , which dims the LEDs and slows the fan speed, quietly monitoring and purifying the air, even when you’re asleep. Built in Smart sensor technology monitors the air quality in your home, and an indication light displays the results; green, amber, or red, and the built in ioniser releases negative ions into the atmosphere that help to neutralise airborne viruses and bacteria. What’s more, it even has a reminder for when you need to change the filter!
This amazing piece of technology has also been awarded the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval and accredited by Asthma UK.
The Vax Pure Air 200 Air Purifier is the slightly smaller version, suitable for rooms up to 105m squared, making it the perfect air purifier for a bedroom. This version also includes a night mode, timers, and smart air quality sensors.
