Why Use a Rocky Mountain Air Purifier for Asthma Patients?
Asthma is a chronic condition where ultrafine particles cause the lungs to become inflamed,
making it difficult to breathe for the patient suffering from this ailment. Asthma cannot be fully
treated in a patient but it can be controlled. People with asthma experience a variety of symptoms
including shortness of breath, tightness of the chest, and sleep disruption from wheezing and/or
coughing. People with asthma are also prone to allergies, which is why airborne particles at home
can cause the condition of the patient to worsen.
Using Air Purifiers to Filter Indoor Air for People with Asthma
At home, there are several substances that trigger asthma such as the following:
Insect particles or scent
Molds and Mildew
Indeed, there are a lot of allergens that may trigger asthma attacks for a patient. An asthmatic
person will be more exposed to allergens inside the house because this is an enclosed space,
making it easier for the triggering particles to circulate indoors.
Since it is impossible to get rid of particles that you can barely see, using air purifiers with efficient
filtering mechanism is best for the health of not only the asthma-inflicted member of the family but
also for others in better health conditions.
To ensure better air quality for asthmatic members of the family, a Rocky Mountain Air with HEPA
filter is recommended. Such an appliance is effective in filtering large and most especially, ultrafine
particles. This appliance is more productive in reducing allergens in the house as compared to
using the vacuum cleaner alone. The latter can only remove particles that have settles on the floor
and other parts reachable by the appliance. On the other hand, an air purifier can reach the
different parts of the house and filter airborne particles.
Natural Methods of Improving Air Quality in the House
In conjunction with the use of air purifiers, there are natural methods that can be implemented to
improve indoor air quality. Here are the steps on how to do it:
Use an air conditioner. It can lower humidity levels in the house and reduce contact with dust
Keep the windows closed. This is especially true during high pollen season. Aside from pollens,
closed windows also prevent the entry of dust, insects, smoke, and other triggering particles.
Preventing the entry of allergens is better than curing its effects on the health of a person with a
sensitive respiratory system.
Encase pillows and mattresses in dust-proof casings. This will help prevent nigh time wheezing
and coughing causing sleep disruption.
Refrain from installing carpets in the house since these easily catch allergens such as dust and
pet hair. Instead, install hardwood or linoleum flooring. If you want to add an accent to your house,
you can use area rugs instead.
Keeps areas such as the kitchen and bathroom clean and dry to prevent the formation of molds
and mildew. It is also best to clear the yard from damp leaves to prevent molds and mildew from
entering the house.
