How can an Air Purifier help your hay fever?

Climate Central reported that in 2023 we are expected to experience a longer, more intense allergy season with seasonal allergies lasting from early Spring all the way through to late Autumn.

It has also been reported that August is the highest month for grass pollen, which most hay fever sufferers are commonly allergic to.   

Pollen is made up of tiny grains which are released by plants and trees as part of their reproductive cycle, it is then typically spread by wind and insects causing significant irritation and inflammation to those who are allergic.

Other pollutants such as house dust, dust mites, animal hair and mould fumes can also trigger allergies and hay fever.

Symptoms of hay fever can include sneezing, coughing, itchy/watery eyes and more. Less common hay fever symptoms include headaches and hives and for those who suffer with asthma, these irritations can sometimes lead to more serious outcomes, such as shortness of breath and tightness in the chest.

So, how can an Air Purifier help your hay fever?

Air Purifiers cleanse the air by filtering out all kinds of pollutants, it can be an effective tool that not only provides improved air quality in your home or work environment but to also provide relief from allergy symptoms.

When choosing an Air Purifier, it is best to pick one with a HEPA filter. This type of filter can remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mould, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns. Units that opt for a less viable filter are nowhere near as effective at removing small allergens from indoors.
