    I have family members who suffer from asthma or allergies.

    More people suffer today from respiratory diseases and complications than at any other time. The two most prevalent respiratory problems people face are allergies and asthma. Almost everyone struggles with one of these ailments or knows someone who does.
    • For allergy sufferers, there simply is no way to escape allergens. These pollens exist in every corner of North America. And they can easily and unexpectedly slip into your home.

    • For asthma sufferers, you are not alone in dealing with your troubles. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, over 7.6 million children (5-17) and over 12.7 million young adults (18-44) suffer from asthma. It's a debilitating disease that can affect every aspect of your life, and over 5,000 people die from it each year.

    With homes that retain air better than ever, both allergy and asthma sufferers are being tortured. In their own residences, they're being subjected to fungi, mold, and dust mites. All of these can trigger asthmatic or allergic attacks. Asthmatics and people with allergies have other predators in their home to worry about as well!

    Chemicals and toxins seep from the everyday items in your home. They include wallpaper, carpet, drapes, paint, couches, and more! If the vapors from these furnishings and items are not circulated out of your home, they will routinely torment people with allergies and asthma. In fact, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the less people are exposed to these irritants and other environmental allergens, the less likely they are to develop and suffer from asthma.

    The air ducts in your home are the perfect hiding spot for mold, dust mites, bacteria, and fungi. These pollutants terrorize allergy and asthma sufferers.

    Understanding your pollution resistance with the "bucket theory."

    Here's an illustration that will help you understand the benefits of a clean indoor environment. Filling a bucket faster than it can drain causes the bucket to overflow. If the bucket is your body and the drain is your immune system, the overflow represents your reaction to the pollutants.

    When you turn the faucet down, your immune system gains the strength needed to fight incoming pollutants. A cleaner indoor air system gives your body time to build resistance to outdoor pollution and pollution in other environments. What's the result? You get fewer colds, flues, and allergic and asthmatic reactions.
