The Key To Dust Mites Removal – Solar Air Module
It is a well known fact that the main trigger for asthma attacks in asthma sufferers in Australia is dust mites. Other major triggers for asthma attacks include mould, pet hair, pollen and smoke.
According to Asthma Australia about 1 in 9 Australians suffer from asthma – and more than 400 people die from asthma each year.
Medication is an important part of asthma management, however, ventilation and the layout of your home also play a major role in ensuring a healthy home with low moisture and dust mite levels. Effective house ventilation will assist in moisture control and therefore help you control the numbers of dust mites in the home. The SAM home ventilation system offers natural ventilation for healthy living with less mould problems and lower dust mite levels helping you with asthma management.
Get Rid of Dust Mites for Asthma Management
The Asthma Foundation provides practical advice on asthma management and asthma control. To reduce the impact of dust mites, the Asthma Foundation lists regular vacuuming and washing of bedding, soft toys and furnishings as well as the use of dust mite covers for mattresses pillow and doona covers. It is the droppings from the dust mites, rather than the dust mites themselves that most asthma sufferers are allergic to.
On the above webpage, the Asthma Foundation goes on to state that “There is no evidence to show that chemical sprays, air filtration, negative ion generators and ‘allergen free’ products reduce the amount of dust mite allergen or kill dust mites or lead to improvement in asthma”
The most effective way to get rid of dust mites and therefore prevent asthma triggered by dust mites, is to reduce and control humidity through ventilation with fresh preheated air.
Home Ventilation for Asthma Management
SAM (Solar Air Module) is a solar home ventilation system designed to introduce fresh, warm and dry air into homes to reduce moisture levels and effectively provide humidity control for asthma management.
Better Health Victoria recommends that you reduce dust mite population, “pay attention to ventilation, heating and cooling. Ideally, the air in your home should be fresh and not too humid.” Humidity control will help you get rid of dust mites and therefore prevent asthma.
The fresh, warm and dry air from a SAM home ventilation system will have a dehumidifying effect that exercises humidity control (moisture control) and therefore reduces or stops condensation to help reduce and prevent mould.
The moisture control by the SAM Ventilation system will have a positive impact on the other common household triggers listed by Better Health Victoria:
- Dust Mites
- Smoke (wood fires, cigarettes, etc)
