For millions of Americans, allergies can make life miserable. Allergies from tree and plant pollen, dust, and pets can cause a runny nose, sneezing, and itching. And for people with ongoing respiratory issues such as asthma or COPD, allergies can exacerbate symptoms and increase the chances of an asthma attack. Over-the-counter allergy meds offer some relief, but they often have side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, and nausea.

If you or someone in your family has asthma, you will be well aware of the potentially life-threatening risks associated with asthma attacks. There are a number of environmental factors that can trigger an asthma attack, including dust, allergens, pet dander, and chemicals. Effective removal of these airborne pollutants will help to ease asthma symptoms, reduce the need for medication and avoid dangerous asthma attacks.
