More than 50 million people are affected by allergies in the U.S. Every year, allergy symptoms result in congestion, sneezing, coughing, and respiratory infections. If you are one of those affected by allergies, how do you keep the symptoms down and make it through allergy season with fewer occurrences? By regularly cleaning your house with a system that offers up to 6 months of protection from allergy-causing substances.
Getting rid of allergens in your home depends on having a good understanding of what causes allergies. Allergens such as dust, pollen, mold, pet danger, and animal droppings contain proteins that cause an allergic response in the body. The immune system recognizes these proteins as foreign intruders by their shape and begins producing antibodies to protect the system. As these antibodies lock onto the proteins and rush into the body, the body experiences an allergic reaction like an asthma attack. It may produce sneezing, coughing, wheezing, and similar symptoms.
The National Institute of Health published a 3-year study in 2002 that determined that half of the homes in North America have enough dust mites in their bedding to cause allergies. And, on top of that, allergens can hide in carpets and furniture as well. The best way to reduce allergy symptoms is to limit exposure to indoor allergens.
That means taking greater care with our cleaning habits. It’s good to use antimicrobial cleaning products, but that alone isn't enough. A better solution is to employ a professional carpet cleaning company to rid your home of allergens and pathogens through an intense cleaning process. The allergen removal process eliminates the allergens and the substances that feed them.
The next step is to change the structure of the lgE proteins so they are no longer recognized by the body, eliminating the allergy response mechanism. Reducing the concentration of allergens in the home to a low level is one way to alleviate allergy symptoms.
Allergy Relief Treatment™ has been shown to be effective at denaturing (changing the protein shape so it is no longer recognized) the allergen proteins produced by dogs, cats, and dust mites through laboratory testing. It is effective in homes with the highest concentrations of allergens and provides protection for up to 6 months.
