As I’ve mentioned in recent posts there are huge benefits for dust mite allergy sufferers in using air purifiers or air filtration systems.

I recently took mine apart for cleaning and couldn’t believe what came out of the filter.

As you can see, huge amounts have collected in the main filter. Behind this sits a HEPA filter which weeds out the even smaller particles of dust.

It’s very satisfying to be able to observe, and wash out, these thick layers of dust knowing we would otherwise have been breathing them in.

Nothing will ever replace fresh air. Camping, sleeping outdoors, living in hot, dry climates. These are all the holy grail for dust allergy. However for those of us living in modern, damp homes these are the next best thing. And the proof really is there to see.
