In the UK, May and June are the peak months for grass pollen, which is one of the most common causes of hayfever. Sufferers of hayfever (seasonal allergic rhinitis) can often feel the effects of their allergic reactions even inside the home, but this can be helped with the use of an air purifier.
Air purifiers work by filtering the air in your home and pushing back out clean air. When used consistently, air purifiers can help to greatly reduce airborne pollutants, such as pollen spores and other particles given off by trees and crops at this time of year.
By utilising an air purifier, create a zone inside the home in which hayfever symptoms can be greatly reduced, bringing some relief. The Igenix IG9600WIFI Smart Air Purifier boasts three-stage HEPA 13 filtration which removes 99.97% of viruses, polluted particles, odours, allergens and dust from the air in your home.
The primary filter catches the largest particles like fine hair, pet dander, dust mites and fluff, while the HEPA 13 filter removes indoor micro-particles such as the seasonal pollens that cause allergic reactions.
To complete the three-stage filtration, the IG9600WIFI also has an activated carbon filter, which absorbs gases and smoke. Activated carbon filters can particularly benefit people who suffer from allergies as they diffuse strong odours.
If an open window has allowed pollen spores to come inside, close the window and then monitor air quality in the room using the coloured LED light indicator or the Igenix app. By using the app paired with the IG9600WIFI, users can also change the current operation mode, view the timer, monitor air temperature and check in on the life cycle of the filter and understand when it will need replacing.
In auto mode, the IG9600WIFI will detect air quality, adjust the LED light and change the fan speed to ensure the space is purified of any lingering toxins in the air. Sleep mode switches off the screen and keeps noises as low as 30dB, the same as a whisper, to purify the air without disturbing your night’s sleep, perfect for use overnight to help you wake up without heavy allergy symptoms.
