Studies show that over 20% of the population is affected by allergies or asthma. Irritants can be topical, such as a particular cleanser, internal, such as a certain food product, or airborne, such as pet dander or pollen. Two of these three can be mitigated with specific precautions – if you are allergic to a cleaning product, you use something else. If you are intolerant to peanuts, you avoid foods that contain them. But the airborne variety is quite a bit tougher – you can’t stop breathing! And those who suffer from asthma know all too well that it may not take much to trigger an attack – even common dust can be the antagonist.
Although there are allergy medicines for just about any type of affliction, you can’t very well go and cut down your neighbor’s flowering bushes. However, keeping the air you breathe in your home clean is something you can control.
Dust mites, pet dander, mold, and pollen are the leading causes of most indoor allergies. Cleaning your home with a central vacuum system will help remove these allergens entirely. Unlike an upright vacuum which recycles the air it sucks in through its exhaust and back into the room, a central vacuum transports everything to the central canister/motor location, which is typically installed in a garage or basement. Sure, many of todays uprights employ air filters of some type, that is no substitute for moving the debris and the air elsewhere – out of your living space. Filters can leak, become clogged, or simply be of marginal quality.
A study conducted by the University of California-Davis School of Medicine found that use of a central vacuum system can reduce allergy and asthma symptoms by 40 to 60 percent.
