REDUCING HEALTH RISK BY MAXIMIZING HEALTHY AIR.
Research has found that common household dust mites, which thrive in more humid environments, may be a factor in as many as 80% of asthmas, hay fevers and other allergic ailments.
Exposure to house dust containing mite allergens typically causes sneezing, nasal stuffiness, runny nose and itchy/watery eyes, but can also trigger asthma attacks.
Mold is another problem that arises from higher humidity in a home. This fungus feeds on organic substances and survives in moist conditions. Besides causing allergies, mold produces harmful chemicals such as VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and mycotoxins.
Health hazards related to mold include coughing, wheezing, running eyes/nose, skin rashes, muscular aches, loss of appetite, inability to concentrate, and fatigue.
