Tired of Dust Allergies?
Numerous scientific studies have shown that the ultra-fine particles, including allergens, dust mites, and chemical particles in the air, are harmful to our health. They can be absorbed through lung tissues right into our blood stream. These ultra-fine particles are small enough to penetrate a cell's mitochondria (the center and brain of the cell) and cause cell damage. It is estimated that ultra-fine particles can subtract up to 10 years from a person's life. A study by The American Heart Association shows that these ultra-fine particles can increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Take dust mites for instance; these are microscopic creatures that belong to the same class as spiders and ticks (they have eight legs, not six like insects). They feed primarily on dead skin cells regularly shed by humans and animals. Dust mites thrive in places where their primary food source is most likely to be found: on mattresses, pillows, bed covers, carpets, upholstered furniture, stuffed toys, clothes, or other fabric items in the home.
Mite waste products contain an allergen (a substance that causes an allergic immune reaction) that, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, adversely affects about 20 million Americans. Sensitive individuals become exposed to this allergen when they inhale household dust, which contains dust mites and their waste products. Exposure to dust mites can trigger an attack in an asthmatic person sensitive to the dust mite allergen. For persons allergic to dust mite allergen, exposure can cause allergic rhinitis (hay fever), which is characterized by nasal congestion, itching, and sneezing. In addition, exposure to dust mites may cause children who are predisposed to develop asthma to do so.
While you can’t get rid of dust mites completely, you can minimize their multiplying numbers by placing air purifiers in your bedrooms, and making sure all your vacuum cleaning home appliances are equipped with HEPA Filters. High Efficient Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are made of fine glass fibers. HEPA filters can capture the smallest of particles, down to 0.3 microns in size, 99.97 percent of the time. These filters trap smoke, molds, bacteria, dust mites, pollen and other particles.
In addition to cleaning the visible dust and particles in your rooms, Bobsweep is designed to get rid of microscopic germs and harmful allergens. Bobsweep is equipped with an advanced HEPA filter. It is recommended that people with dust allergies vacuum and mop their hard floors and carpets once a day. The good news is, while you might not have the time or the motivation to go through that painful task everyday, Bob doesn't mind going around your house cleaning it from all harmful particles even twice a day. Once Bobsweep sucks the particles inside his belly, the HEPA filter inside the dust bin prevents them from escaping. Make sure you change the HEPA filter every three to six months depending on how often you use Bobsweep and how sensitive you are to allergens.
As Bob drifts over your floors automatically vacuuming and mopping every corner and surface, a UV lamp underneath it obliterates the harmful germs that come in its path. With these deep cleaning features, Bobsweep, the intelligent floor cleaner, is a great investment towards a healthier family.
