Healthy Homes; Spring is in the air!

With spring in the air, there are also allergies in the air which can make the home environment a real concern for those with Asthma and allergies.

A Beam Built -In Vacuum Systems offer a real and positive solution to the “Spring Fever” that many people have to go through. Pollen, dust, and other unseen air-born contaminants invade our houses all the time, but especially in springtime when flowers etc are in full bloom.

Most people know air pollution can damage their health, but don’t know indoor air pollution is one of the most common problems addressed by allergists.

With new and better construction methods, houses are now becoming almost “airtight” and draft free which means the air “quality” inside the home is vulnerable to a multitude of outside driven, inside air pollution influences like wind driven pollen, cooking fumes, aerosol sprays (a huge variety) cleaning compounds (another huge variety) pet hair and dander and of course the humble vacuum cleaner.

Older homes have all the same problems as mentioned above, but they also have dampness, mould and in-ground dust and dirt coming from floors, walls and ceilings to contend with.

Allergies and asthma are increasing at epidemic proportions – effecting 1in 4 children and 1 in 7 adults which equates to 20% of the population of NZ who suffer from breathing difficulties from asthma or allergies. Beam Built -In Vacuum Systems are the only system clinically proven by independent tests and recommended by the NZ Asthma Foundation to relieve Asthma and allergy symptoms in the home.

Why install a Central Vacuum system?

The common upright vacuum cleaner is one of the main polluters of the air inside a home! These systems take the contaminants from the floor, and while they capture the larger particles in their system, they pass the smallest particles through the system and reintroduce it back into the air, all the way around the home!, usually at breathing height, That’s the “smell” you get when you vacuum.

Independent studies show indoor air pollution has been proven to be one of the main causes for the increase of lung disease, respiratory and tract infections, asthma and allergies.

Through independent tests, the NZ Asthma Foundation have recommended a Beam Built-In Vacuum System to be installed into homes as it is the only system that has been tested and proven to remove 100% of contacted dirt, dust, mites and allergens from the floor, as well as contaminates from the air.

A Beam system carries any contaminants away from the living areas (usually to a garage or basement area) and provides a measurable relief for allergy sufferers from nasal, eye and sleep symptoms and provides for a cleaner, healthier home environment.
