Allergy Sufferers and Veterinarians Manage Dander with BEAM Central Vacuum

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI), as many as 10 million of the 100 million Americans who own pets are allergic to their dogs and cats. Yet 80 percent of pet owners keep their pets inside the home, triggering sneezing, itching, watery eyes, runny nose and a variety of other allergic reactions.

The same deep cleaning and allergen-reducing capability is what makes BEAM Central Vacuum Systems appealing to veterinarians and ideal for pet owners’ homes. Numerous allergy physicians and environmental organizations such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) say the use of central vacuum systems may help some patients live comfortably with pets in the home.

Because a Central Vacuum does not exhaust contaminated air into the room that can stir up pet dander and other allergens, a central vacuum systems significantly reduces exposure to allergens, dust mites, animal dander, dust mites and other houshold allergens, giving you a healthier home environment.

Below is part of a very interesting article published on Stuff, 22nd March 2018

Damp, mouldy homes, a love of furry pets and our acres of green pasture mean lots of sneezing, wheezing and feeling lousy for those with allergies.

Mark Dixon, Chief Executive of Allergy New Zealand, said most of us don't realise how bad it is here. "People who are newly arrived and are just settling in are hit with it, they're just not used to it," he said. "It's not something we should just put up with."

Here are the most common sources of airborne allergens:

Our damp, poorly ventilated houses contain some of the highest levels of dust mites in the world.

"New Zealand is the capital of the world when it comes to dust mites," said Dixon. "They love it when it's between 18 - 24 degrees, with 60% humidity or higher. We deliver beautifully for them."

The microscopic mites, which eat human skin scales and other debris, absorb water from the environment. The bed, couch and carpets are ideal breeding grounds.

Dust mites can trigger allergic rhinitis (sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and throat) and aggravate asthma, thanks to the allergens present in their faecal particles. Tiny and light, the particles float into the air and if inhaled can cause a reaction.

"If you've got the symptoms of an airborne allergy, it's quite likely to be dust mites," Dixon said.

The best way to control them is to prevent the conditions that cause them to multiply. This means reducing dampness and humidity with proper ventilation and minimising or cleaning the areas they like to live.

That is a scary picture of a Dust mite! Our homes are teeming with dust mites, which are the likely source of many allergies.

*Study results published in the Journal of Investigational Allergology & Clinical Immunology.

Central vacuum systems provide cleaner indoor air by efficiently removing particles without stirring up microscopic dust particles and remitting them into the interior of the home. The vacuum receptacle is a sealed container outside of the living space keeping the air inside free of allergens and pollutants.
