The arrival of spring brings allergies into the home

Moisture, dust, poor ventilation: the factors to watch out for

Winter seems to be coming to an end for real, but not everyone is happy about the arrival of spring. Why? Because spring coincides for many people with the annoying problem of allergies.

Sneezing, an itchy nose, irritated throat, watery eyes and all kinds of discomfort are mostly associated with pollen blown around by the wind outside our homes. But too often we underestimate the fact that allergenic agents are mainly found inside our homes. And they are mainly generated by dust, humidity and overheated environments.

And let's not forget the role played by the filters in household appliances, which, if not properly cleaned, are the ideal breeding ground for allergy-causing dust and micro-dust.

In order to prevent spring from becoming a nightmare period for allergy sufferers, all kinds of measures must be taken, especially preventive ones, to eliminate determinants such as dust and micro-dust.

First of all, it is useful to keep the humidity level under control. This must always be around 50% because an environment that is too humid encourages the proliferation of mites, while an environment that is too dry helps the circulation of dust.

It is also important to keep an eye on the cleaning of the filters of all household appliances in the home. It is also important to avoid using electric brooms or traditional vacuum cleaners because, apart from cleaning the filters, these appliances release most of the micro-dust they suck in through the motor vent. This is of no real benefit to allergy sufferers.

Our role and that of the central vacuum system

Our role and that of the central vacuum system

We must remember that we are the main allergen carriers. Every time we return home, we bring with us the dust and dirt 'collected' from outside. In addition to cleaning the rooms, it is therefore important to maintain a high level of personal hygiene.

A central vacuum system is the only solution that can guarantee an indoor environment that is not only clean but also free of allergenic agents, unlike the most common household cleaning appliances. Thanks to the external vent and its suction power, dust and micro-dust are truly eliminated and expelled from the home.

The use of dedicated brushes for each type of surface allows a thorough cleaning of the places where allergenic agents nest. From floors to carpets and mattresses without distinction.
