CNN Climate Change is making allergy season worse – Allergy Standards, asthma & allergy friendly Certification Program
Great mention of the Certification Program in a CNN article on the correlation between climate change and allergy season. Throughout the article, the journalist explains how climate change is making the allergy season longer and worse for allergy sufferers.
Warmer temperatures increase the level of airborne pollen because, scientists say, the growing season has, well, grown. […] If warming continues at its current pace, by the end of the century, the growing season will be longer by about a month in most states. States that weren’t home to the pollen-producing plants and trees will soon see them in abundance, exposing whole new populations to pollen.
This is the reason why it is important for allergy sufferers to look for solutions to tackle the allergy triggers and improve their quality of life. The journalist mentions a few different solutions to do so including the use of asthma & allergy friendly® CERTIFIED vacuum cleaners to help people improving their indoor environment and create a healthier home.
As far as pollen, vacuum cleaners with HEPA filters are helpful. Standalone HEPA filters improve indoor air, too. Be sure to look for the asthma & allergy friendly® certification mark to make sure they will be your best defense against the yellow stuff.
The Certified asthma & allergy friendly® vacuum cleaners have been tested against ASL scientific standards and are scientifically proven to help contain and reduce exposure to asthma and allergy triggers.
In order for a vacuum cleaner to be CERTIFIED, it has to meet our rigorous requirements:
- Remove allergens from your home;
- Retain allergens that are removed from your carpet within the vacuum cleaner;
- Remove allergens without redistributing them back into your home’s air;
- Maintain allergen pick-up when the bag or receptacle is partly filled; and
- Limit your exposure to allergens upon changing the bag or cleaning the receptacle.
