Spring Allergies, Pollen & Mold
Spring time means an end to the long winter season with warming temperatures and outdoor activities for many people. During this time of year, trees, plants and weeds also recognize the changing weather and begin to bloom. These burst of flowers are a welcome sign to many, but for millions of people it also means the beginning of sneezing, coughing and watery eyes. These seasonal allergies are often caused by pollen and mold spores that are released into the air. When people who are allergic to these substances come into contact with them, their immune system releases antibodies that attack the allergens. Histamines are released into the body and trigger the allergic reactions so common to many people. Both pollen and mold spores can travel great distances in the outdoor air. This can be especially true during windy spring days. These air quality contaminants can be a concern to both people enjoying the outdoor weather and even those indoors as the allergens can often enter buildings through open doors and windows, on people's clothes, and through the HVAC system where they may even accumulate. There are simple tips to help spring allergy sufferers during this time of year. They include: • Keeping doors and windows shut. • Driving with car windows closed. • Limiting time outdoors and possibly wearing a mask during outdoor activities. • Avoiding drying clothes outdoors. • Monitoring pollen and mold counts before heading outdoors. • Showering and washing clothes after spending time outdoors. • Utilizing high-efficiency air filters to remove airborne allergens. For some people, these same airborne allergens can even trigger an asthma attack. Those who experience allergies all year long should also consider possible indoor allergens that they may be exposed to on a regular basis. Common indoor contaminants include mold, dust mites, pet dander, and insect and rodent allergens. These are just a few things to know about spring allergies, to learn more about allergens or other indoor air quality, industrial hygiene, health and safety, or environmental issues, please visits the websites shown in the video.

Fall Allergies: Indoor & Outdoor Culprits
For many people, fall means an end of hot summer days as temperatures begin to cool and trees begin to lose their leaves. During this time of year, the cooler temperatures have many people spending time outdoors enjoying the weather or playing sports. Fall also means it is ragweed season which affects millions of people. Ragweed is considered to be the most significant allergy trigger in fall, although there are other plants that also release pollen during this time of year. Depending on where a person lives, ragweed pollen may be present from August through November. Mold is another common outdoor allergen during the fall. Piles of damp leaves or other organic material make for an ideal place for mold to grow and release spores into the air. When people who are allergic to these substances come into contact with them, their immune system releases antibodies that attack the allergens. Histamines are released into the body and trigger the allergic reactions common to so many people. In fact the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that, “Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. with an annual cost in excess of $18 billion. More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year.” Both pollen and mold spores can travel great distances in the outdoor air. This can be especially true during windy fall days. These air quality contaminants can be a concern to both people spending time outdoors and even those indoors as these allergens can enter homes and buildings through open doors and windows, on people’s clothes, and through air intakes in HVAC systems. For some people, these same airborne allergens could even trigger an asthma attack. For those who experience allergies all year long, they should also consider possible indoor allergens that they may be exposed to on a regular basis. Common indoor contaminants include mold, dust mites, pet dander, latex, insect and rodent allergens.

Summer Allergies
Many people associate allergies with spring, but allergies can be a problem for people any month of the year and the summer season is no exception. Summer allergies can be caused by seasonal outdoor culprits or due to the presence of indoor allergens. Two of the most common causes of summer allergies are due to the presence of pollen and mold. Depending on where you live, you may be exposed to a variety of different pollens. Generally speaking, trees usually pollinate during spring, but grasses and weeds can still cause pollen allergies throughout the summer months. High levels of airborne mold spores are a common occurrence during the summer months. Outdoors, warm and moist conditions can be conducive for elevated mold spore counts which can be an issue for people working or enjoying the outdoors. These same spores can also make their way indoors through open windows and doors and even on people’s clothes and hair. People who are allergic to mold should also inspect their home for the possible presence of mold growing indoors. Mold can grow quickly on many materials found in our homes, schools and offices when temperatures are warm and moisture is present. Any part of a building that has suffered water damage or elevated humidity levels could be the source of indoor mold growth. Even mold growing in a crawl space, basement, attic or in a wall cavity can cause indoor air quality problems. Dust mites are another common indoor allergen during the summer months. These tiny creatures thrive during this time of year due to the warm and humid conditions. Even certain fruits and vegetables people enjoy during the summer months can cause an allergic reaction. Oral allergy syndrome, also referred to as pollen-food syndrome, occurs when proteins from these foods cross-react with pollen. The presence of ground level ozone in many areas during the hot summer months can also exacerbate allergy symptoms as even relatively low levels of this pollutant can cause health effects in sensitive individuals. These are just a few things to know about summer allergies and indoor environmental quality.

PollenTEC Allergy Screens Product Review
http://www.aconcordcarpenter.com I suffer from allergies. In fact I suffer so much that I have taken many steps inside my home to reduce allergens . Recently I came across the PollenTEC Allergy Screens and was intrigued enough that I contacted the company and spoke to Paul Honnen about his product. Paul sent me a roll of PollenTEC screen material to review and evaluate. FIRST IMPRESSION: The PollenTEC roll came boxed in the mail as promised and on time. Looking quickly at the screen it looks and feels similar to nylon screening only "silkier." A closer look at the pollenTEC Allergy Screening revealed that it has a tighter weave within the grids. When I held up a sample of the PollenTEC material next to conventional screening there is a marked difference in visibility. According to PollenTEC there is a 30% reduced visibility and air flow with their screening. This is intentional and part of the tight weave that catches airborne pollen and dust particulates. USING PollenTEC SCREENS: Before I installed the PollenTEC screens I conducted an unofficial experiment in my shop. I stretched out a 12" wide by 36" long strop of aluminum, nylon and PollenTEC screen over a barrel. Once stretched out I poured approx. 1/2 cup of flour over each one. The aluminum and fiberglass screens lost most of the flour immediately and all of it when I shaked the screen. The PollenTEC was the only screen that held most of the flour and lost a little less that 1/2 of the flour to shaking the screen. The rest stayed... impressive! [Thanks to George Gussler for the suggestion] Since installing PollenTEC screens in my screen porch the question most people have been asking me is "What is PollenTEC?" PollenTec is a screen material for windows and doors that allows fresh air to flow into your rooms while filtering out up to 99% of air borne pollens. The material will also significantly reduce the amount of dust and other particulate matter from entering through your screens. According to Paul Honnen, "PollenTec is made from 100 percent polyester that is precisely spun and then put through a patented coating process. It is this combination of precisely spun polyester with the patented coating that attracts pollen spores like a magnet and traps them onto the fine, fibrous grid of the material." PollenTEC Proven To Filter Air Born particles: PollenTEC has been certified and hospital tested by the European Center for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF). The testing results verified that 100% of grass pollens, 99.71% of Birch pollen, 93.1% of Stinging Nettle-pollen, 90.9% of Ragweed pollen were captured. MAINTENANCE The PollenTec material should be cleaned at least once a season and, depending on the amount of pollen in your area, perhaps more often. PollenTec material can be cleaned with a mild detergent and a garden hose. You can even vacuum it with a soft brush attachment. COST: PollenTEC can be purchased as ready-made screens or in rolls for a do-it-yourself home improvement project. PollenTEC costs about four to five times more than standard screens. With PollenTEC screens you will no longer need to run your AC during the pollen season which can be a huge energy and cost savings! The average cost per window screen is nine square feet or 36" x 36" costing $45.00 Which equates to $4.50 to $5.25 per square foot depending on quantity purchased. OVERALL IMPRESSION: PollenTEC was easy to install, and looks great! I found it very similar to convectional fiberglass screening. As far as difficulty I would rate this an easy to moderate DIY project. Once the screens were in there was a reduced visibility and a slight blurry appearance to objects depending on the lighting. The reduced visibility does provide additional privacy which was an unexpected benefit. So far visitors to my screen porch have not noticed a difference in the screen until I bring it up. Although it is not the heavy pollen season, I do feel that dust and pollen particulate has decreased as a result of the screens. This screening material could possibly be the "silver bullet" that all of us allergy sufferers have been longing for. This review contains my opinion of a product. I take pride in providing my readers with an honest and objective information as well as a practical approach to using a product. I never accept payment in exchange for a positive review. Many of the tools and products are provided to for free by a manufacturer for review.

Subscribe to our channel for more videos. Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-47APzU3sXQ) How to Live With Allergies to Pollen Pollen allergies, also known as hay fever or seasonal allergic rhinitis, can make life miserable for those who suffer when plants and trees bloom. A runny nose, itchy throat, wheezing, swelling of the eyes, and other symptoms plague seasonal allergy sufferers during the spring, summer, and fall. Allergies are caused by a person's immune system overreacting to the presence of an allergen like pollen. While it's nearly impossible to avoid all pollen, you can learn how to live with allergies to pollen by avoiding it as much as possible. Other options include taking over-the-counter (OTC) and/or prescription medications to alleviate symptoms. Avoiding Pollen -Stay inside when pollen counts are high. Check pollen forecasts to find out when there's a high pollen count in your area. -Use air conditioning. Keeping your windows open in the spring is tempting, especially when the weather is in that perfect temperature range. -Consider a HEPA filter. Even staying inside, you may find that some allergens seep in. A high-energy particulate air filter (HEPA) can help reduce allergens in your home, -Delegate tasks if possible. If your allergies are triggered by outdoor pollens, it's best to avoid them. -Use physical barriers as needed. If you must do lawn work or be outside when pollen counts are high, try using physical barriers to help reduce your pollen intake. -Pick natural fibers. Synthetic fibers tend to attract pollen more than natural fibers, keeping the allergen on your body.

Sleep Tips for Allergy Sufferers
People spend a considerable part of their lives sleeping and as anyone who suffers from allergies knows all too well, it can be a real challenge getting a good night’s rest when symptoms flare up. Lack of sleep can impact a person’s immune system, cause fatigue, poor performance in school or at work, increase absenteeism and even cause depression in some people. Taking over-the-counter medicines or prescription drugs can help, but so too can minimizing exposure to allergens in your bedroom and even the bed itself. Here are some tips on reducing exposure to allergens in the bedroom. • Dust mites thrive in warm and humid environments and are often present in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, bedcovers, clothes, stuffed toys, and fabric and fabric-covered items. Regularly clean pillow cases, sheets and bed coverings in hot water and use high heat to dry them to kill and remove dust mites. There are also special dust mite covers for bedding materials which may help. • Dander from pets can cause allergies so avoid allowing your pet in your bedroom and do not allow pets to sleep on the bed. • If cockroaches are present, treat and clean the home because many people are allergic to their body parts and waste. • Mold thrives in conditions with high humidity or due to water damage. In fact, mold can begin to grow in as short as 48 hours on many materials when conditions are suitable. • A cool and dry environment helps most people sleep and helps to minimize dust mites. An air conditioner or a dehumidifier can help achieve a pleasant sleep environment. • In some regions, primarily during the winter, adding moisture with a humidifier can help with dry skin and respiratory issues when the air is exceptionally dry. However, be sure to following the manufacturer’s instructions to keep it clean and prevent mold and bacteria from growing or making the room too humid. • Regularly change out the home’s air filters and if necessary, consider using a separate air cleaner for the bedroom. • Pollen is a common allergen so keep plants out of bedrooms and windows closed when there are high levels of outdoor pollen. Also shower before going to bed to rinse any pollen off your body. • Regularly vacuum using a machine with a HEPA filter and don’t forget to dust. Also clean items that may hold large amounts of dust, such as window curtains, which are often overlooked. • Stuffed animals in a bed can contain allergens such as dust mites, so frequently wash them and perhaps minimize the number allowed. • Some people may be allergic to feather pillows and feather beds so consider allergen-resistant bedding options. • Use environmentally friendly fabric detergents with no scents or fragrances as some people can react to common chemicals and fragrances found in some popular detergents. These are just a few things to consider for the indoor environment of bedrooms that can impact people with allergies hoping for a good night’s sleep.

Put Vinegar On Your Plants And This Will Happen
There's a handy ingredient probably sitting in your pantry just waiting to provide an array of super benefits. Vinegar. did you know you can safely use this ingredient in the garden too? Check out a few clever ways you can use vinegar (white and apple cider) where your veggies and plants spend their days: 1.Vinegar for weeds: Instead of spending a lot of money on toxic chemicals to get rid of the weeds in your garden, pouring apple cider vinegar directly on the weeds. The acetic acid will stop weed growth without damaging the soil. 2.Get rid of ants: Ants don't like the smell of vinegar, so you can keep them at bay by mixing 1-part water and 1-part vinegar in a spray bottle and attacking ant hills with the solution. Both white vinegar and apple cider vinegar work well. 3. Freshen flowers: Cut a pretty bouquet of flowers from your garden and keep them fresh by adding two tablespoons of vinegar and a teaspoon of sugar to a quart of water, and add your flowers.  4.Feed your plants: Some plants (like Gardenias, Holly, and Begonias) thrive on acidic soil. You can give those plants some extra love by spritzing with a mixture of 1 gallon of water with 1 cup of white vinegar. 5.Test the PH level of your soil: The acid levels in your soil can affect how well plants grow. You can run a simple test on your dirt by placing a bit of the soil in a container and then add 1/2 cup vinegar. If the vinegar begins to fizzle and bubble, the soil is too alkaline. Add sulfur or peat moss to even out the soil's acidity. 6.Remove allergens from your hands: If you've been digging in the dirt with your bare hands, make sure to rinse your hands with white distilled vinegar. The vinegar will remove allergens and other debris so you don't start itching. 7.Keep common pets out of your garden Animals that love to get in your garden, like raccoons, rabbits, moles, rodents, and deer also happen to hate the smell of vinegar, so it will keep them out naturally without causing them harm. All you have to do is soak a few rags in your apple cider vinegar and place them strategically throughout your garden. Re-soak them once a week to ensure they retain their maximum effectiveness. And 8. Clean pots: Mix 1-part water, 1-part white distilled vinegar. Soak glazed, clay or plastic pots in the solution for at least an hour to remove stains and mineral deposits.

Tips for spring allergies relief in Michigan
Dr. Frank McGeorge has some very helpful tips for you to consider during allergy season in Michigan.
Tips for Dealing with Spring Allergies
It's a peak time of year for allergies. CHI St. Alexius Health Nurse Practitioner Michelle Maier say the busiest allergy seasons are fall and spring. She says leaves, mold, pollen, and dust in the air all contribute to allergies. Maier says the most common symptoms include itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing and congestion. She says if you have any of those symptoms you'll want to visit with a healthcare provider first to make sure that it's an allergy. She says there are a lot of available treatments for allergies over the counter like nasal steroids and antihistamines. She says some tips to deal with allergies are to use a nasal rinse to wash away irritants, to not sleep with the window open at night and to wear a mask when mowing. "Allergies can start at any time. I have some patients that are younger that have them and are just developing them and then I'll have some that never had allergies and then they're all of a sudden developing them, and they'll be surprised," says Michelle Maier, FNP-C. She says to find out what you are allergic to you can see a specialist and have testing. KXNews Corina Cappabianca, Reporter

Watch Now !!! 10 Ways to Reduce Mold Allergies
10 Ways to Reduce Mold Allergies 1. Track the Numbers If you're allergic to mold, you may feel like you’re fighting a losing battle. Mold thrives in so many places, indoors and out. But you can take steps to limit your exposure. Pay attention to outdoor spore levels. When they’re high, don’t spend as much time outside. The National Allergy Bureau sends out email alerts to help you keep track. 2. Think Before You Go Mold is more likely to be in certain types of stores and businesses. Examples include greenhouses, farms, flower shops, construction sites, and antique shops. Before you go in, take your allergy medication or bring a dust mask. 3. Know What to Avoid Uncut fields and piles of damp leaves are prime places for mold. Stay away if you can. If you need to mow the lawn, dig up plants, or rake leaves, wear a dust mask. When you come back inside, take a shower to wash away any mold spores that hitched a ride on your skin and hair. 4. Take the Moisture Out Make your home less mold-friendly. The key is to control the amount of moisture in the air. Dehumidifiers and air conditioners will help. The humidity needs to be below 60%. Between 35% and 50% is even better. You can buy an inexpensive meter to measure your home's humidity at a hardware store. 5. Keep It Clean Mold can thrive in warm, damp bathrooms and humid kitchens. A clean surface isn't a breeding ground, but those with a little soap scum or grease are. An exhaust fan or open window in the bathroom will help cut down on humidity. In the kitchen, keep an eye out for mold in refrigerator drip pans, door seals, and garbage pails. 6. Check Your Basement A damp cellar can be a moldy place. Lower the humidity by turning up the thermostat or running a dehumidifier. Choose flooring such as linoleum or concrete that doesn’t hold in moisture. And take a look at what you’re storing down there: Mold can grow on old papers, bedding, and clothes. Keep things in air-tight, water-proof containers, so mold can't sneak in. 7. Get the Mold Out If you spot mold on a hard surface in your home such as glass, plastic, or tile, clean it using a bleach solution, soap and water, or a commercial product. Still, it's not enough to just clean it. You need to find the source of it to keep it from happening again. For mold on drywall, you might want to get professional advice. 8. Filter Your Air An air-conditioning unit with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter attachment will trap outdoor mold spores and keep them out of your house. It’s also important to keep AC drip pans and drain lines clean so that mold can’t grow in them. Make sure your dryer vents are clear as well. 9. Act Fast Quick action pays off. If a leak or spill leaves the rug wet, dry it within 48 hours to keep mold from growing. Mop water off the floor and fix leaky pipes and faucets right away. Do your gutters need cleaning? Don't delay. The moist leaves inside are a breeding ground. 10. Check Your Landscape Do everything you can to keep your home’s foundation dry. Rake dead leaves from around the base of your home. You might also want to clear out thicker shrubs and plants from that area. Make sure rainwater drains away quickly from your house. These steps are extra-important if you live in a shady spot, since a lack of sun means it takes longer for water to dry out _________ Keywords: allergy advice, mold allergies, prevent allergies, allergy symptoms, allergy treatments, dust mites, dust allergies, allergic reaction, prevent mold, natural cures, home made recipe, home made remedies, herbal, herb, how to get rid of black mold, mold removal, how to get rid of mold, how to kill mold, how to remove mold, how to clean black mold ________ Music: https://www.bensound.com

How to protect yourself from air pollution
Air pollution has become a major issue in India (World) because of traffic and vehicle congestion. Since the liberalization of automobile sector 100 FDI in automobiles the number of automobiles on Indian roads have increased to over 3million now Adding to the problem is fuelwood and biomass burning, and fuel adulteration. The rate at which urban air pollution has gone up is really alarming. Majority of cities in India are caught up in this toxic grasp as air quality has gone below basic health-standards. with newer pollutants like oxides of nitrogen and air toxics adding to the challenge. Let us understand the impact of these pollutants on you: Short term: The immediate effect of the polluted air is borne by your nose, throat, eyes, and lungs. This makes you prone to a plethora of allergies and infections, which are easily communicable in nature. Long term: Research states that regular exposure to air pollution can result in variety of pulmonary diseases, especially in children and the elderly. Air pollution can cut down your lung capacity by 20 percent in children. Now, let us look at some of the precautions that you can take to protect yourself. When indoors: Keep your doors and windows closed to reduce the pace of the penetration of smoke. If you see that the area around you is smoke free, take this opportunity to open the windows and improve the indoor air quality. You can also invest in window mesh screens that would not only act as an optimal filter against dust particles and pollens, but also effective in keeping insects out of your house. If you live in a highly polluted area, make sure take regular breaks a visit an environment with cleaner air. You can visit a park or garden and do deep breathing exercise, given that the environment is not polluted. You can add more charm to your house decor and simultaneously reduce indoor pollution by bringing in air-purifying plants like Peace Lily, Florist’s Chrysanthemum, Golden Pothos, and English Ivy. Dust mites and mold breed in moisture. So, try and keep the humidity around 30%-50%, which keeps them and other allergens in control. When outdoors: Try and drive as less as you can. Take a walk, ride a bicycle, use public transport, or do carpooling to reach work. If your office gives you the choice to work from home, make sure you capitalize on the same. This will not only help in saving money, but also help in reducing air pollution. In case of extreme air pollution, try avoiding working out when outdoors. This is because you breathe heavily when you work out, which results in more particles entering through your airways. Make sure that the air filters of your care are replaced regularly. Wear a reusable air mask when you are outdoors as simple paper and cloth masks cannot protect you from such high level of pollution. Download predictive outdoor pollution apps that affords you with air quality information for your city up to two days in advance. This will help you make better decisions about when and how to face the outside air. Please watch: "Women Self Defense Tips" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfIQU45lzB8

Mold The Hidden Allergy Problem
Shape The Hidden Allergy Problem. Going outside during this season can influence children to sniffle or wheeze, yet as one mother realized, what's inside your home may really be causing the manifestations. Form is a parasite that comes in a great many assortments and becomes both outside and inside. Keeping in mind the end goal to flourish, form needs two things: water and warmth - and you surely don't need to persevere through a tropical storm to discover it increasing in your home. "Form spores are all around. They're simply holding up to be watered to begin developing," says Paul J. Pearce, PhD, right hand educator of pathology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Shape can be available inside amid the whole year. What's more, in the vast majority of the nation, this is the time when open air molds begin to develop too. They thrive in sodden, shady zones, for example, heaps of leaves, feed, grass, and soil, and they last through pre-winter. In hotter atmospheres, they can be a year-round issue. Up to 33% of youngsters are sensitive to shape (just dust hypersensitivity is more typical). Breathing in spores - the undetectable airborne seeds of shape - can cause sniffling, a runny nose, irritated eyes, wheezing, and hacking. In the event that one parent has sensitivities, a tyke has a 30 to 40 percent shot of acquiring the propensity to create them; if the two guardians are unfavorably susceptible, the chances are more than 50 percent. Lamentably, specialists are finding that form sensitivity is something other than innate. An examination at the University of Cincinnati uncovered that infants presented to large amounts of specific kinds of family unit molds have an expanded shot of building up various sensitivities sometime down the road. Other research has discovered that youngsters who live in a home with unmistakable form and a past filled with water harm have as much as twofold the rate of asthma - regardless of whether their folks don't experience the ill effects of the sickness. Asthma and form are an especially dangerous mix. Most children with asthma are oversensitive to form, and they have a tendency to respond more extremely to molds than they do to different triggers. "Outside form starts developing in the spring and deteriorates as the year advances," says Linda B. Portage, MD, an allergist at The Asthma and Allergy Center in Omaha. "On the off chance that your kid has asthma, it's essential to endeavor to dodge puts that are well on the way to have form." Areas that are particularly shape inclined regularly incorporate home vegetable greenhouses, naturally cut grass, outbuildings, ranches, and structures shut amid the winter. Soggy Dangers: In the course of recent years, after a large number of homes were overflowed in the Midwest, specialists cautioned occupants about the peril of indoor form development. "At the point when your building has been overwhelmed, it's exceptionally hard to dry it out rapidly and totally," clarifies H. James Wedner, MD, head of sensitivity and immunology at Washington University School of Medicine, in St. Louis. The main govern is to evacuate all wet building materials, cover, and even wood since they can't be rescued on the off chance that they've been soaked for longer than two days. "Sheetrock douses up water far over the surge line; shape can be covered up under backdrop, cover, and planks of flooring, and in roof tiles, furniture, and dress," says Dr. Wedner. Defilement can begin with only a stream of water - even a little break in your rooftop or funnels can prompt a noteworthy shape issue that can make your family debilitated. Despite the fact that shape can become behind your dividers or in your storm cellar where you can't see it, you may see dull fixes on surfaces or notice a smelly scent.

Philips Air integrated solutions | IFA 2017
Over 20% of the world’s population suffers from respiratory allergies such as hay fever, allergic asthma or allergic rhinitis [1]. Levels of outdoor air pollution are on the rise, with 92% of the world’s population living in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits [2], and indoor air quality can be two to five times worse than outdoors [3]. These circumstances mean that people are increasingly looking to alleviate their respiratory health challenges.

Ayurvedic Spring Guide
https://anatabain.com/2018/03/25/living-in-balance-with-seasons-spring/ How to detox, lose weight, alleviate allergies, hay fever, sinus congestion, colds, flu, and other common spring conditions with healthy diet and lifestyle? Ayurveda, the ancient holistic system of medicine, gives detailed recommendations for adjusting our diet and lifestyle to the spring season. By following the Kapha pacifying diet we can cleanse, support and heal our bodies, and truly blossom from within. Spring season takes place from mid march - to late may. It is the season the majority of us most look forward to as it marks the transition from dark, cold, foggy winter into warmer, sunnier and brighter part of the year. And just like nature does, we too awake from the winter hibernation and a new cycle begins. Will it be an enjoyable one or not, depends how well did we take care of ourselves during winter time. Ayurveda defines health as a dynamic state of equilibrium where a person has to adjust its diet and lifestyle to the season, environment and personal needs. Most of the time our instincts are driving our diet and life choices, but when we become separate from nature, especially in these modern times, we become confused and driven by the imbalance in our body. If we disregard our natural needs to be attuned with nature, our body will slowly slip into an imbalance and we will soon sense first symptoms as our body’s attempt to draw our attention to mistakes we’ve been making. If we were following an appropriate diet and supportive lifestyle during the winter season, the transition to spring season brings enthusiasm, happiness and lightness. Our instincts are clear and sharp, and we align ourselves with nature without much effort. We crave more fresh fruits and vegetables, wild, bitter greens such as dandelions, and heavy meals don’t feel so inviting anymore. We are attracted outdoors and there is this sudden need to clean our home, open the windows and let fresh air bring in a new energy. However, if we indulged in too many heavy, fatty foods, desserts, where the main physical activity included shifting tv channels during winter time, we have fallen into an imbalance and spring now brings a whole host of uncomfortable symptoms, such as colds, running nose, sinus congestion, hay fever, allergies… Instead of looking for the cause in blossoming nature, it is important to listen to what our body is telling us, and help it heal by adopting a diet that is appropriate for this season. So what foods should you favour this time of year? Imagine your grandparents, and what their choice would be. I’m quite sure they didn’t need any spring guideline or a list of foods to consume. They ate what nature was providing, what was fresh and seasonal. So you should too. give preference to bitter, pungent, and astringent flavours fruits: apples, variety of berries, dried fruit, lemons, limes, pears, prunes, raisins, vegetables: artichoke, arugula, asparagus, beet greens, celery, chard, collard greens, dandelion greens, endive, fennel, garlic, green beans, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce, mustard greens, peas, radishes, scallions, spinach, sprouts, turnip greens, watercress, wheat grass grains: amaranth, barley, buckwheat, corn, granola, millet, oats (dry), polenta, quinoa, rice, rye, spelt, wheat legumes: all legumes are good, especially mung beans. Minimise soy and soy products. dairy (if consuming, use in small quantities as they aggravate kapha dosha): cottage cheese, goat’s cheese (unsalted),goat’s milk, yogurt nuts and seeds: chia, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, small amount of almonds oils: corn, canola, ghee, mustard, sesame, sunflower and safflower oil sweeteners: honey, fruit juice concentrates spices: all spices used in moderation are generally supportive during spring season So, in general, adopt light, warming diet with variety of seasonal foods. Feast on spring greens, but also include berries, legumes, especially lentils, and grains. Enjoy fresh salad galore daily with light dressings made of olive oil and lemon juice to support liver detox.   As winter gives way to spring we are generally attracted to the outdoor. Spend time in nature as much as possible, soaking the sun and breathing in the mesmerising fragrances of flowering plants and trees.. Stretch your body with yoga, Tai chi, or walk with your friends. Cycle to work if possible or take a walk during lunch break. You will feel fulfilled, inspired and energised to make this new beginning more enjoyable. Happy spring!

Protecting Yourself From Hay Fever
MIAMI TOWNSHIP -- It's that time of year when your nose may start to itch and you may sneeze a lot more. Wednesday marks the unofficial start to ragweed season. It's like clockwork. Come this time every year, the ragweed pollen kicks up and millions suffer from Hay Fever. The Shorter days and longer nights that start in Mid -august stimulate pollination in the ragweed plant."A stuffy nose, I'm completely stopped up and a lot of times it causes sinus infections. I can't breathe through my nose at all," said Kristin Harmon. She says the sinus infections she gets from ragweeds were so bad, she's had to have surgery just to help limit the infections."It just started happening to me a couple years ago now I'm sneezing constantly," said Harmon. "I drove down the road with my windows down and someone was mowing grass and I had to pull over because I had sneezing fits with the grass."Each year about 36 million Americans suffer from hay fever, where they develop spasms of sneezing, a stuffed-up, runny, itchy nose, itchy and swollen eyes, and itching and mucus in the throat. "It'll go down when a  frost comes or when its cold for a while so it will be here for about two months now," said John Paul of Regional Air Pollution Control Agency.Inhaling airborne pollen and mold spores would be completely harmless to someone without allergies, but to someone with allergies simply an open field like can cause hey fever.The pollens that cause seasonal hay fever are primarily produced by trees in the spring, grasses in early summer, and ragweed in late summer. "Spring is normally where I have my eyes itchy and red," said Linda Kipp who also gets allergies. "Fall with ragweed season it's a cough."To reduce your exposure to ragweed you'll want to: -Use air conditioning instead of opening windows at home and in the car-Minimize outdoor activity especially between 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. -Shower after spending significant time outside-Don't hang any clothes out to dryOn cloudy, windless or rainy days, the average person may have fewer symptoms because the pollen will have disseminated. When the weather becomes hot, dry, sunny and windy, symptoms may return in full force.Click here to see an air quality forecast.

But in most areas, this delightful sensation can only be experienced in the summertime. In contrasts, clothes dried inside in the winter time tend to have an almost moldy smell. And not without good reason: drying clothes inside makes your home more humid, which is exactly the kind of environment in which mold and other fungi thrive. Scientists in England have actually studied the phenomena, which is known to cause throughout the country. The Hidden Dangers As your clothes dry on a drying rack or over your radiator, water evaporates and makes the air in your home more humid. Since a load of wet clothes contains almost two liters of water, drying it indoors can actually increase the humidity in your home by 30%. This extra moisture creates ideal breeding conditions for mold spores and dust mites, which can cause respiratory discomfort and infection, especially in people suffering from asthma, allergies or hypersensitivity to allergens . What Science Is Saying Professor David Denning and his team at the National Aspergillosis Centre in Manchester told the Daily Mail this habit is the leading cause of patients being treated for having inhaled Professor Denning said: “Most of us are either immune to the fungus which grows in these humid conditions, or have a sufficiently healthy system to fight the infection.” “But in asthma sufferers it can produce coughing and wheeziness, and in people with weak or damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, AIDS patients and people who have an auto immune disease, the fungus can cause pulmonary aspergillosis – a condition which can cause irreparable, and sometime fatal, damage to the lungs and sinuses.” Aspergillosis Aspergillosis is actually the name of a group of conditions caused by a fungal mold called aspergillus which typically affects the windpipe, sinuses and lungs but can spread to other tissues in the body . These conditions typically cause i-like symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, cough and fever but can also mimic sinutitis and lung infections. More severe symptoms include weight loss, chest pain and coughing up blood. The condition is not contagious and healthy individuals can usually fight off the infection before it spreads to the lungs. Once it reaches the lungs, the condition is typically treated with antifungal medication. One Man’s Story Craig Mather, a 43-year-old father of three from Bolton, suffered serious mold-related lung infection from frequently drying wet clothes on his bedroom radiator. Mather had been asthmatic since childhood and had contracted tuberculosis in 1997, both of which left his lungs weakened and vulnerable. He says: “I only started to recover when my consultant diagnosed chronic pulmonary aspergillosis and prescribed me special drugs to fight the fungal infection.” “However, I noticed coughing fits and night sweats particularly when I had wet washing drying on the warm bedroom radiator.” “He told me that it could be making my problems worse, so for the last 12 months I haven’t dried my clothes indoors and I’ve notice a huge improvement in my health.” What To Do Instead “My advice would be when in doubt dry wet washing outside, in a tumble dryer or in a well-ventilated indoor space away from bedrooms and living areas to be safe rather than sorry,” suggests Professor Denning. If the weather is mild enough, keep your windows open to give the humidity a place to go or use a dehumidifier to wick away moisture from the air inside your home. It’s also a good idea to open windows after cooking or taking a shower to limit moisture in your home, which can also cause mold to grow on your walls, tiles and ceilings.

Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together…even if it means losing everything. “Everything, Everything” stars Amandla Stenberg (“The Hunger Games”) as Maddy and Nick Robinson (“Jurassic World”) as Olly. The film also stars Ana de la Reguera (“Sun Belt Express”) and Anika Noni Rose (“Dreamgirls”). Meghie (“Jean of the Joneses”) directs from the screenplay written by J.

10 Ways to Reduce Toxins in Your Home (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 48)
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode provides 10 guidance tips on how to detoxify our homes to reduce the amount of toxins in them, for our best health and wellbeing. For more guidance on healthy living, take Evita's online video course: The 5 Pillars of Optimal Health here: https://www.udemy.com/optimal-health/?couponCode=SiteSpecial Video transcript: The most important healthy lifestyle habits, like eating a diet based on high quality, wholesome plant foods, drinking enough pure water daily, moving enough and sleeping enough are how we create the best state of health, weight, energy and longevity. However, given the highly synthetic nature of our world today, it is also essential to decrease the stress and burden of toxins on our body by detoxifying our lives, as much as possible. Toxins found in commonly used everyday products can disrupt hormones, damage the nervous system, stress the liver, and cause headaches, fatigue, all sorts of allergies and respiratory conditions. Here are 10 ways to reduce toxins in your home: 1. Open windows and air out your house regularly. Due to the high concentration of toxins within the home off-gassing constantly, indoor air quality is almost always worse than outdoor air quality. The more fresh air you introduce, the more you improve your indoor air. 2. Switch conventional cleaning products to natural cleaning products. Choose fragrance-free versions, whenever possible, and know that simple things like water, baking soda, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice are some of the most effective cleaning agents available. 3. Remove all air fresheners, including scented candles. These are some of the most toxic products and highly irritating for our respiratory system. Use a diffuser with pure essential oils, or natural candles, if any fragrance is desired. 4. Switch conventional personal care products, to natural options. What you put onto your body is just as important as what you put into your body. Reduce the amount of products you use, and aim to use the least harmful options available. There is an abundance of choices available today for every budget. 5. Change your bedding to organic cotton and/or bamboo options. Cotton is one of the most heavily pesticide treated crops and chemically treated fibers. The slew of synthetic fibers, including polyester, come with all sorts of other problems. And given that about one-third of your day is spent in your bed sleeping, it is valuable to make it as safe and healthy, as possible. Organic cotton and bamboo mattresses, pillows, covers, sheets and blankets are all widely available today. 6. Remove carpets and opt for hardwood or tile flooring, as much as possible. Carpets harbor lots irritants and heavily off-gas due to their highly synthetic nature. 7. Switch plastic food containers, tupperware, cups and bottles for glass, as much as possible. Plastics are highly synthetic and can easily leach toxins into our food, especially if heated. 8. Avoid PVC — polyvinyl chloride — products, including many shower curtains, toys, vinyl flooring, and garden hoses. 9. Reduce the amount of stuff you have. One of the simplest and cheapest methods to reduce the concentration of toxins, is to reduce the amount of things we buy and have in our homes. Aim to have high quality versions of what you need for your lifestyle, without all the problematic excess. 10. Be mindful of what new products you choose to bring into your home. Make conscious choices when you purchase new things, that are both safe and healthy for you and our environment, on our journey of mindful living.

How to Green Your Indoor Air Quality | Green Living
Watch more Green Living Guide videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/514780-How-to-Green-Your-Indoor-Air-Quality-Green-Living Hi. Alegre from Ember Living, here today to talk about how to green your indoor air quality. Your first question might be why would I even want to green my indoor air quality. Well there's actually something known as sick building syndrome, where people are exposed to so many toxins in an indoor air environment that it actually makes them physically sick. So if you think about it, there are a lot of things in the air that you might not see that if you inhale are not good for you body. So there are a number of ways to improve your indoor air quality. First of all, if possible have windows that open. Sometimes in a work environment that's not always possible, but in a house it's very easy to open up your windows. If you keep your windows closed all the time, for many of us your indoor air will actually be less clean than you outdoor air, because winds come through and they clean things out, and that's an important process. Two, get indoor plants if you can. Plants are really good at removing toxins and cleaning out the air. Unfortunately, you do need a high number of plants. There's actually an interesting study that NASA did, and they say you need about 10 good size plants for every 100 square feet. So that might not be possible, but I personally like to have as many plants as possible wherever I have enough light source to support a living plant. And I especially like to keep plants near electronic devices, because electronic devices give off a lot of things that are polluting to the indoor air quality, and the plant can help deal with that really quickly. Three, you want to avoid anything that has a high amount of what are known as VOCs, or volatile organic compounds. So if you think about it, when you paint a house, that horrible smell, that's a volatile organic compound. And that horrible smell is also bad for your lungs. So you want to look for products that say "No VOC" or "low VOC" or have a rating from and organization like Green Guard. So that certifies that it's not going to pollute your indoor air. So this is most important when you're looking at things like paints and adhesives and solvents. That's where you want to pay attention to things like VOC. And finally, clean out your cleaning supplies. One of the most toxic places in your whole house is probably under your kitchen sink, because of all those chemicals there. And you're putting those chemicals into your indoor air a lot of the times, especially because those cleaning products tend to be in sprayer bottles. And that's really bad for your eyes, for your skin, and also for you lungs, especially if you have a child, because children's lungs take a long time to develop. And exposing them to these chemical toxins that are in a lot of cleaning products can really be bad in terms of allergies and asthma. So check out our other videos on green cleaning products, and I have a great pamphlet and lots of videos on making your own cleaning products and products to avoid and products to embrace in order to improve your indoor air quality. Thanks.

Improve the Air Quality in your home
http://northerncomfortinc.com Your indoor air can be up to 70 times more polluted than that of the outdoor air. While you spend a majority of time indoors, you should make sure the quality of the air is at its best. With poor air quality you can develop asthma or allergies because of the pollutants in the air. When you inhale these pollutants, it may have an immediate effect on yourself like appetite, digestion, moods, depression, anxiety, irritability, and sleep. Make sure to change your air filters regularly on a monthly basis or when recommended. This way you can help to have the best quality air possible in your home. Why your indoor Air Quality is important Without knowing it, you spend a significant amount of time indoors, more than your may realize. This can either be at your home or office. Having good quality air is critical for the overall health of you and your family. Indoor air can contain chemicals and other pollutants that can cause headaches, eye irritation, allergies, and fatigue if there is enough exposure to them. Serious pollutants can cause certain types of long-term health complications and allergies. Gasses such as carbon monoxide or nitrogen dioxide are odorless and may cause headaches, nausea, shortness of breath, and an increase for respiratory infections. By having good quality air, you can help to prevent these issues from developing. How to improve your indoor Air Quality You can help to improve your home's indoor air quality with a few things. It is important to have your duct system cleaned regularly. The system has dust particles that drop and collect along the duct walls. Clean ducts can reduce the amount of pet dander, dust, and any other allergens that might be in your home's air. Having your ducts professional cleaned as part of your regular home maintenance routine can be beneficial for everyone. It can also help to increase the circulation of the air, and provide better efficiency in ventilation. It can also be helpful to open the windows in your home. This can help to allow fresh air to circulate in your home and remove stale smells and indoor humidity. This is especially important because lowering the humidity can help reduce the growth of mold and mildew. Air Filtration systems can help the quality of your indoor air Filters in standard air cleaners are very dense so they can stop the dust that is in your air. They trap the dust in a porous filter. The filter becomes clogged over time and will not only stop the dirt and dust, but also it will stop the air from moving as well. This will then result in your home not being as comfortable and the air is less clean. An air filtration system can help collect the pollutants and allergens in the air and keep the indoor air clean. It can reduce potential asthma and allergy triggers in your home like dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mites, mildew, as well as other allergens.

Apartments, Mold & Indoor Air Quality
By some estimates, there are approximately 30 million apartment units in the United States. These units are managed by landlords and professional management companies and range from low income apartments to luxury living accommodations. As is the case with virtually any type of building, water damage and elevated humidity levels can result in the growth of mold in apartment complexes. The presence of mold can cause a wide range of health concerns from triggering asthma and causing allergies to hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP), infections and exposing people to toxins known as mycotoxins. Since mold and mold spores occur naturally in the environment, they can enter an apartment from the outside through open doorways and windows as well as through the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system's outdoor air intakes. Spores can even attach themselves to people, making clothing, shoes, bags, and even pets all convenient vehicles for carrying mold into an apartment. If these mold spores land on surfaces where there is moisture, such as where leaks may have occurred in roofs, pipes, walls, or where there has been flooding or excessive humidity, they can begin to grow in as short as 24 to 48 hours. Many apartment building materials and tenants' furnishings and belongings provide suitable nutrients that encourage mold to grow when moisture is present. Wet cellulose materials, including paper and paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood, and wood products, are particularly conducive for the growth of some types of mold. Other materials such as dust, paint, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery, also commonly support mold growth. Mold may even be on or in many building materials before they were ever even used to construct the apartment complex. Because tenants do not typically know if there has been water damage in a unit before they move into an apartment, it is imperative that the property managers or landlord has previously dealt with any moisture issues in a timely and effective manner. It is also crucial that preventive maintenance is performed on the both the interior and exterior of the building to prevent problems. These are just a few things to know about how mold enters a home, to learn more about this or other indoor air quality, and environmental, health and safety issues, please visit the websites shown in the video.

Allergy Machine Air Purifier HM405 Color White review
50 percent off this air purifier check http://www.purifier.to-snap-up.com Allergy Machine Air Purifier HM405 Color White evaluation If you suffer from only mild symptoms or simply want to reduce smoke or pet dander in your home, a more affordable model can do the trick. |} It works by adsorption (particles stick to carbon), not to be confused with absorption. 97 percent of particles that are exactly 0. If there’s a fair amount of buildup on your filter, or you just want peace of mind, simply replace it. But despite product claims, there's little definitive medical evidence that air purifiers help to relieve respiratory symptoms. ”Especially if you’re older or have asthma or other respiratory conditions, you may want to consider an air purifier. Many of the things we do to keep energy costs down, such as fixing drafty doors and leaky windows, can also seal in pesky pollutants and irritants. As the air passes through, particles are trapped, clogging holes and making the grid smaller, which enables the filter to be even more efficient with ongoing use. Choosing the correct air purifier to deal with whatever your specific problem is doesn't need to be a headache. Air purification in your home is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. 97 percent efficient in removing particles 0. Heffernan suggested looking for a CADR rating of at least 200, which means the unit effectively delivers the equivalent of 200 cubic feet of pure air per minute. They’re portable—most room air purifiers weigh from 10 to 20 pounds, have a handle, and stand on the floor or on a table, while heavier models might have wheels. ”Some models may list a CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) rating. “And indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air. How much space do you have? Air purifiers can be heavy and bulky, with some requiring a few feet of clearance on all sides. Dedicated ozone generators, a subcategory of room models, produce large amounts of ozone by design. Usually manufacturers list the area the air purifier works best in square feet. Many portable models have annual operating costs of $150 to $200 for filter replacement and electricity (with the majority of that cost being for filters). Zeolite is a natural mineral that can be added to absorb certain gas molecules including formaldehyde, ammonia and carbon monoxide. So your air will feel fresher, but the impurities/allergens are still in the room and open to inhalation. And many homes are not terribly well ventilated. Most HEPA filters are designed to run continuously for a year, though many manufacturers recommend checking them every six months. In living spaces, choose an air purifier with adjustable speed settings so you can turn it up to a higher setting when you're not in the room to be disturbed by the noise. All of the HEPA-certified models Mr. These conditions are not possible in real life because running a purifier at full speed is noisy and home and offices have leaky windows and doors opening, which brings doown efficiency,” said Aggarwal. 003 microns in size. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are 99. We test how well a room air purifier removes dust and smoke from an enclosed space, how it performs at high and low speeds, and how quiet it is. Some owners say they've experienced significant relief from allergy symptoms with the use of a $25 filter that works with an existing forced-air heating or central-AC system. Air purifiers are one of those under-the-radar household items that you think you can live without, but once you have one you can never go back. “Most of us spend a lot of time indoors,” Mr. Because air purifiers are not all created equal, you need to know what to look for and what to avoid. Many of these tips are common sense: Keep your windows closed, and avoid spending too much time outdoors to keep from bringing particulates into your home. Even if you don’t suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments, the amount of biological and chemical contaminants polluting homes today is why the Environmental Protection Agency deems indoor air quality one of the top five environmental health risks. To cut costs, look for room models that are Energy Star qualified, meaning they are relatively energy-efficient compared to standard models. Beyond purifying your air, there are additional precautions to take if you live in a smoke-adjacent area or you’re concerned about pollutants. Again, while the long-term effects of short-term smoke exposure may be low, any kind of particle pollution can still affect our health, and that pollution is more concentrated indoors — meaning nearly all of us can benefit from cleaner air. If you have an Ioniser already you will probably have noticed a build up of black deposit around the machine where the particles have been

Do not worry; you're not the only one having this dilemma. There are also a lot of Do-it-yourself lovers who want to understand more about this kind of paint too. We've compiled a few of the most common queries people inquire about Latex paint in this post and it might do you a lot of good to check them out. What's LATEX PAINT Latex paint or perhaps generally called as water-based paint is paint you can use inside for painting on ceilings, walls and wood. There're often instructions included in the paint can saying where the paint could and should be applied. Latex paint is made of uniquely formulated polyvinyl material. This kind of paint has acrylic resin. What's LATEX PAINT Composed Of? Latex paint is made up primarily of water as its main solution. The rest of the paint is afterward composed of pigments and fillers. In addition, it includes resin which is what the term "latex" refers to. Are There Safety And Health Safeguards You Should Consider When Working With LATEX PAINT? Indoor latex paints, specially the water-soluble types, are generally low-toxic except if consumed in huge amounts. There are actually indoor latex paints that could release formaldehyde upon drying out. Whenever latex paints produce high amounts of formaldehyde after drying out, they will end up irritating the eyes, nose and throat and may even present you with a massive headache. To generally be free from danger, make sure you read the label in the paint can or container to start with to know the best way to make use of it properly. Useful health and safety information and facts are included as well in the label therefore make an effort to have a look at it too. When painting a room, keep doors and windows completely open. Keep small children away from the area you're painting as well as keep containers of paint closed. Furthermore, don't use outdoor paints indoors. IS LATEX PAINT Threatening For The People Afflicted With LATEX Allergies? Latex paint is not made from latex rubber and so the answer is NO. The phrase "latex paint" is actually only a fancy way of describing rubber-based paint. Latex allergies are in fact brought about by a hypersensitive reaction to all-natural rubber and this does not apply to latex paints because they do not contain any type of rubber, just acrylic resin. Latex paint does not present any kind of risk to those struggling with latex allergy symptoms. According to research, the type of latex paint inside latex paint is not similar as the kind of latex which is discovered to induce latex allergies. If you're planning on using latex paint to paint your house, you could get a couple of helpful suggestions coming from online resources relating to this matter.

Zero Bacteria service to improve the Indoor Air Quality
Zero-Bacteria service Researches endorse that the use of well-maintained Indoor Unit, of your Air Conditioner, lowers down a person’s risk for cardiovascular complications. But they also warn us that if you have a badly maintained or wrong-directional, slanted Indoor Unit, it can become contaminated and potentially harmful. Fact is, worsening asthma problems & allergies are two health issues, stem from this contaminated Indoor Unit, leading to an ominous-sounding phenomenon : “Sick building Syndrome”. This Sick building Syndrome is associated with a range of seemingly unrelated symptoms : Watery or Reddened Eyes, Mood Swings, Nasal & Sinus Congestion & Irritation, Shortness of Breath, Skin Rashes, Body Aches & Pains, Fatigue, Headaches, Memory problems, Allergic Illness, Dry-hacking Cough, Asthma Attacks in Persons with Asthma, etc. How the Indoor Unit gets contaminated? (1) By formation of black Mold & Bacteria : Newly-installed AC or Deep-Cleaned Indoor Unit absorbs humidity & conditions the air contained in the closed room . This humid air gets condensed & collected within the internal corners of the cooling coil. As the AC cycles on & off, the inside of it gets damp. This damp & dark environment serves as a perfect breeding ground for molds & bacteria. Once the bacteria / mold starts forming, the air blown from the AC is contaminated with these germs, as most AC filters are unable to contain them. (2) by clogging up with foreign matters like dust, debris, mites, animal dander, fungi, etc. : Thus-contaminated-air causes problems like Foul Smell, decreased AC efficiency, higher power consumption, etc. Start breathing healthier & cleaner air by entering into our Parts / Labor Protection Agreements* (3 nos. complete Pressure Washer cleaning** services + unlimited Free Visit Calls against Complaints / yr.) * pl. refer to our sample document, providable on enquiry. ** Zero-Bacteria Pressure Washer cleaning service You can also enquire about our Zero-Bacteria (Red Carpet) service (at your Door within 4 hrs., guaranteed!) - yet another unparalleled Service by SHREEJI Appliances 9, Dev Arpan Complex, Nr.
