At HydroKleen, our comprehensive air conditioning cleaning solution is designed to help improve health outcomes and quality of life for people with asthma. In Australia, our founding country, our cleaning and sanitising process has been exclusively approved by the National Asthma Council Australia’s (NACA) Sensitive Choice Program. This program encourages companies to produce products and services that are more asthma aware, as well as provide education and resources for management of asthma for those who need it. We found NACA’s Healthy Home tips insightful and interesting, so we’ve compiled some of them for you!
These rooms tend to have carpet flooring, curtains and soft furnishings, all of which can harbour allergy triggers, from dust mites to pet dander. Easy to clean surfaces and good vacuum cleaners with a HEPA filtration system are ideal for these spaces. Very sensitive people may still have to avoid doing this kind of cleaning themselves and may need to leave the room, as vacuum cleaners do stir up allergens from the surfaces.
Kitchens & Bathrooms
In the kitchen and bathroom, a clean, hygienic environment is important for good health, but overdoing it with the cleaning products can also have a negative effect. Replacing household cleaning products with harsh chemicals, to those with fewer chemicals and natural ingredients are the aim in this space.
Cleaning can be a problem for people with asthma and allergies, so look for household cleaning products with fewer harsh chemicals and no fragrances.
Mould is also a potential allergen. Keep mould away with good ventilation and keeping wet areas dry when they’re not in use.
In the bedroom, managing dust mites is helpful for those suffering from allergies or asthma. They’re a common allergy trigger and love your mattress and bed linen. Regularly hot washing the linen, and sourcing mite-impermeable covers for the pillows and mattress can help keep the dust mites at bay.
All Indoor Environments
To reduce the overall instance of mould and dust mites in the home, a dry, well-ventilated home is the answer, as both these allergens love humid conditions.
Air conditioners, dehumidifiers, humidifiers and heaters can all help in this instance and will be more effective where they have an appropriate capacity for the area, are left on, windows and doors are shut and homes are reasonably well sealed.
We believe that a quality air conditioner clean and sanitise is imperative to supporting the air quality in your home. A dirty air conditioner will simply recycle the dust and other allergens through the home.
