Simple Steps to a Healthier, Allergy-Free Home
Date:5/13/2008

ATLANTA, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Annually, allergies and asthma strike one out of every four Americans, causing untold suffering, sneezing and wheezing -- as well as $6 billion in doctor visits and medication.

However, putting the right air treatment and cleaning strategies in place throughout your home can create a healthier living environment and help avoid allergy suffering, says Steven Hong, home health specialist and president of Sylvane.com (http://www.sylvane.com).

Hong offers these practical tips for a healthier, happier, and allergen-free home:

-- Tackle Pollen -- As seasons change, the air becomes saturated with tiny

airborne particles that trigger runny noses, sneezing, and itchy eyes.

Eliminate these particles with an economical air purifier like the Alen

Air Purifier (http://www.sylvane.com/alen-air-purifiers.html).

-- Address Humidity -- Mold is a major cause of allergies. Prevent mold

growth by keeping your home's relative humidity below 50%. An Energy

Star-rated dehumidifier like the Comfort-Aire Dehumidifier

(http://www.sylvane.com/comfort-aire-dehumidifier.html) will both

control humidity and keep electric bills low.

-- Keep Your Cool -- Stay cool this summer with an air conditioner that

cools, dehumidifies, and filters the air -- rather than using fans

which can re-circulate dust particles. Portable air conditioners

(http://www.sylvane.com/portable-air-conditioners.html) offer the

flexibility to be used in any room.

-- Clean Up After Fluffy -- Dog and cat dander is a major cause of

allergies. To control, clean furniture, carpets, and floors regularly

with a vacuum that features a built-in HEPA filter, like the Electrolux

Vacuum (http://www.sylvane.com/electrolux-vacuums.html).

-- Take the Bite Out of Dust -- Dust mites occur naturally in normal home

dust and can be especially prevalent -- and allergy inducing -- in

bedding. Deter dust mites with all-natural hypo-allergenic bedding,

such as CottonFresh bedding (http://www.sylvane.com/cottonfresh.html).

-- Steam Up to Clean Up -- Steam cleaners

(http://www.sylvane.com/vapor-steam-cleaners.html) are the ultimate

indoor cleaning tool for hard surfaces, grout, upholstery and carpet --

as well as for addressing a host of allergy triggers, including: dust

mites, mold, mildew, germs, and bacteria. The best steamers use

absolutely no chemicals.

-- Remove the Smoke Screen -- Outdoor smoke and smog can infiltrate your

home to affect your family. Monitor the quality of your indoor air

with a laser particle counter

(http://www.sylvane.com/laser-particle-counter.html).

-- Filter for Change -- Continue to breathe easy by keeping the filters

clean in your home air treatment and cleaning equipment. Create a

calendar noting when filters were last changed out and are due to be

cleaned or replaced.

"With the right strategies in place anyone can easily create a healthy indoor environment. Plus, today's equipment offer energy-saving features with a relatively small financial investment -- making an allergen-free, happy home achievable for virtually anyone," said Hong.
