My family has struggled with allergies and asthma for decades. Not only do my husband and I have asthma on both sides of our families, but our children both have asthma too. While my older son’s asthma is moderate and mostly under control, this is not the case with my younger son. The reason for that is that he also has multiple allergies to such things as grass, trees, pollen, and mouse epithelium.
Yes, he is allergic to the dander that comes off the fur of mice. I didn’t think this was going to be a major concern as we don’t have mice in our home, however, our doctor quickly explained to us that mice are everywhere and this dander that comes off of them can be in the air just about anywhere. As a result, we have had to resort to controlling his asthma and allergies with preventative medicines and daily allergy medications.
We have tried everything to try to improve the quality of the air in our home to keep him from having allergic episodes and asthma attacks. I can’t even begin to tell you how many different brands of humidifiers we have used since he was a baby. The time finally came that we realized that our last chance would come by way of trying an air purifier for our home.
Our new Fellowes Air Purifier has simply been a godsend. We were absolutely grateful and thrilled to have the opportunity to review this wonderful product that we hoped would have a profound impact on the environment in our home and help to decrease my son’s allergic and asthmatic episodes. Once it arrived, we decided to place it in our bedroom since my husband works nights and my sons generally end up sleeping in our room every night. One of our favorite things about the unit was how lightweight it was and how little space it took up in our small bedroom.
We have been simply amazed at some of the features of the Fellowes Air Purifier including:
-PlasmaTrue™ Technology removes airborne pollutants and gets air cleaner at the molecular level, instantly neutralizing viruses and germs in the air.
-True HEPA Filter safely removes 99.97% of particles and impurities as small as 0.3 microns, including mold spores, pollen, dust mites, allergens, cigarette smoke, pet dander and odors.
-Air purifier includes an air purity sensor that monitors the air quality and automatically adjusts the fan speed to keep your air cleaner.
We believe that using the Fellowes Air Purifier has improved my son’s breathing and allergies. I have noticed that he is not coughing as often at night and his wheezing has decreased somewhat when he is home. At the end of the day, anything that eases his symptoms and allows him to breathe better and to have a healthier environment is extremely beneficial to our entire family.
