Will an Air Purifier Help With My Child's Allergies?

Chris Helms - Thursday, March 19, 2015

What to do if your child suffers from allergies due to less than ideal indoor air quality.

Indoor Air Quality

Your indoor air quality is directly related to the health and quality of life for you and your family. Is your child constantly suffering from allergies? Do they have the sniffles, runny nose, itchy eyes, wheezing, or even asthma? If you or someone you love goes through this, you might be surprised to find out how your indoor air quality could be responsible and how an air purifier can help.

What’s Going on in Your Air?

The air inside your home is a combination of what gets recirculated through your heating and cooling system along with what comes inside from the outside. Allergens and pollutants come into your house through open windows and doors, and on feet, shoes, and clothing. You’ll find allergens, pollen, pet hair and dander, pollutants, and molds make their way into your house on a daily basis.

How Can an Air Purifier Help?

An air purifier takes the air in your home and forces it through a filtration system that traps the tiny particles making your child sneeze and cough and wheeze. Most good air purifiers will capture everything from dust, dust mites, to pollen, and pet dander.

If your air purifier uses a HEPA filter, it is specifically designed to catch the majority of air pollutants, generally 90% of all particles that most people find to be the most irritating to their allergies.

If your child suffers from allergies, there are a number of ways to combat them. Some of the best actions you can take include ridding your environment of the items they’re sensitive to, cleaning regularly, acquiring reliable climate control, and installing a good air purification system.
