Dust mites are well-known to cause problems for people all around the world, they can trigger allergies and asthma as well as other respiratory illness.
These tiny creatures typically flourish in humid areas although can be found in all climates.
It is not a nice thought, but dust mite allergies are caused by a byproduct of the mites themselves; Yes, you guessed it, their feces and decaying bodies. Errrrr!
These proteins in mite debris are the primary culprit when it comes to causing allergic reactions.
Dust mites are microscopic, only 0.2-0.3 millimeters and cannot be seen with your own eyes. As you can understand their feces are even smaller and will be inhaled deep into our lungs.
Since they are so tiny they will spread through the air when people are cleaning or doing other actions that increase the airflow indoors.
Preventing dust mite allergy is not easily done with filter type air purifiers, which tend to break up the debris into smaller pieces and spread it more with their fans… Not good!
Want to inhale droppings?
When dust mites and their by product of feces and decaying bodies linger in the air they will stay air borne for hours due to their tiny size.
LightAir purifiers reduce and remove dust mites from the air and with our unique patented technology you will be able to breath better.
Our air purifiers will effectively prevent dust mite allergy by filling your indoor air with negative ions, these negative ions attach themselves to small airborne particles, including dust mite debris, and the positively charged collector on the IonFlow unit attracts and collects them.
Simply wash the particle collector every few weeks and you will have consistently clean air, free from pollution, virus and of course dust mite debris…
