Mould is found in damp places and reproduces through tiny spores. If you are sensitive to mould you may suffer from the following symptoms:
- Sneezing / Wheezing
- Eye irritation
- Skin irritation
- Nasal problems
Dust mites are also found in damp places such as beds, curtains, rugs and carpets.
Though small, dust mites can easily trigger allergy and asthma symptoms.
A dehumidifier brings down the level of humidity in your house and eradicates problems such as mould and dust mites.
In particular look for dehumidifiers with an anti-bacterial filter and ioniser.
An anti-bacterial filter pulls bacteria and fungi towards it and kills them upon contact. This results in cleaner air in the house which is beneficial to allergy and asthma sufferers.
The air around us contains positive and negative ions. In damp and moist conditions there are more positive ions which makes it harder for people to breathe as these positive ions attach themselves to water.
If you suffer from hay fever, bronchial asthma or other respiratory problems you want to limit the amount of positive ions in the air. This can be done with an ioniser.
The EcoAir DD122 MK5 Dehumidifier features both an silver nano technology anti-bacterial filter as well as an ioniser which makes it an ideal purchase for allergy and asthma sufferers.
Featuring Eco E7 technology the EcoAir DD122 MK5 ensures that running costs are kept at a minimum via a auto toggle function which selects the right dehumidifier setting for the amount of humidity in the air.
Furthermore the EcoAir DD122 MK5 Dehumidifier runs at 34dBA at its lowest setting, features a 3D louvre to pinpint air dlow in a particular direction and operates an Overdry Protection system which ensures that the air won’t dry out too much and cause irritations such as cracked lips etc.
