Allergy or air pollution

Allergy or air pollution
25/09/2018

To give the trees their due, they do an excellent job at pollination, along with their bee helpers of course! However high pollen levels mixed with air pollutants is a key factor in the rise of allergic diseases such as allergic rhinitis and other health problems like asthma.

Pollution, particularly from gases like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide typically from car exhaust fumes, attaches itself to pollen making it airborne, changes then occur on the pollen.

Therefore, the increase in allergic disease is accelerated as the body’s immune system attempts to fight the pollutants entering the body by producing antibodies called IgE (Immunoglobulin E), these travel to cells and cause an allergic reaction or symptoms that are characteristic of allergy. Symptoms include itchy eyes, nose, throat, ears, sneezing, irritability, coughs and congestion.

To ensure an effective pollen removal from your building, a well-maintained filtration system, with correctly fitted filters is essential, utilising a pre-and secondary filter arrangement.

A high quality G4 or M5 filter, such as a panel from the Filtrex Smartpleat range or a high-loft synthetic bag at M5, would provide efficient pre-filtration. For a secondary filter, an F7 grade filter from the V-Flow range would deliver excellent, energy efficient, protection from the finer particles.

To really revolutionise your system, please ask about the Proguard Duo, providing pre-and secondary filtration in one filter giving extra life and energy savings, as well as efficiencies in engineer’s time and disposal costs.
