Your home is filled with potential allergens, and they may be responsible for your children sneezing and wheezing. Those itchy eyes little Susie has might be because of the dust mites in your home.
Not to mention, when you have screens in your windows or doors or you open your windows, you’re letting allergens from the outdoors invade your home. Help your tots from suffering the symptoms of allergy symptoms with air filters.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, there’s a one in three chance that a child will have allergies if one parent has allergies. The likelihood if both parents have allergies is even higher, 70 percent to be exact. Furthermore, approximately 40 million individuals in the U.S. have indoor/outdoor allergies. In children under 18, it’s the third most common chronic disease.
An air filter allows air to flow through it and trap dust mite and other allergens. Basically, this cleans the air and rids your home of a great deal of allergy-causing particles. An air filter will help you breathe better and reduce signs and symptoms of allergies. Moreover, air filters are even more important when you have children. Do you really want your daughter or son breathing in air that has particles that make her or him sick? As a parent, your job is to protect your offspring.
By regularly cleaning or changing the air filters you have in your home, you can make the air your tots breathe in cleaner and less polluted with dander, mold and other allergens. Ultimately, this results in your child experiencing less symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, runny nose, itchy/watery eyes and etc. This also means that he or she will require less medication. Since mold can do more damage than just allergies, it’s beneficial to have filters that reduce the number of spores. Plus, your children will be able to sleep better at night when they aren’t inhaling air that can affect their breathing. You may even be able to keep your pet cat if you get filters to trap the pet dander. One of the biggest benefits of air filters — besides the benefit of your child feeling better — is that you don’t have to watch your little one suffer.
For the health of your child, you should consider having air filters and changing them or cleaning them habitually. You’ll have a piece of mind knowing your child is breathing in cleaner air. In addition, you won’t have to watch your child sneeze and itch his or her eyes in misery.
