How effective ventilation can relieve asthma, allergies and hay fever

Poor indoor air quality is associated with around 50% of all illnesses and millions in the UK are affected by allergies or hay fever, some severely. As much as 80% of asthma attacks are caused by the inhalation of dust mite waste. Proper ventilation can go a long way to relieving you of these miseries and improving your respiratory health.

Did you know:

  • Damp problems can increase your susceptibility to minor illnesses and asthma attacks.
  • Ventilation can reduce condensation, drastically lower dust mite populations.
  • Houses swimming with allergens, pollen and VOCs can be devastating to health

EnviroVent products are designed to reduce triggers such as dust mites, household dust, pollen, allergens, mould spores and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They can reduce condensation and damp whilst our Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) systems can remove small particles including pollen from the air.

Asthma, allergies and hay fever Q&As

What’s the link between asthma and ventilation?

Damp caused by poor ventilation is a breeding ground for dust mites that can cause asthma.

What’s the link between allergies and ventilation?

Airborne allergens, such as pollen, if not filtered out of the air can cause allergies including hay fever.

What causes asthma in the home?

Anything that irritates the airways and brings on the symptoms of asthma is a trigger. Just like the symptoms, these can differ from person to person and some sufferers may have several triggers. Common triggers include house dust mites, animal fur, pollen, tobacco smoke, mould and fungi.

What causes allergies in the home?

Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance such as pollen, bee venom or pet dander, or a food that doesn't cause a reaction in most people.

Do house dust mites exacerbate asthma and allergies

Dust mites don’t bite but they are allergenic and can trigger asthma. People are often allergic or have an asthmatic reaction to the proteins found in their droppings but they can also be allergic to the body parts of the dust mite.

How can ventilation reduce asthma triggers?

Dust mite waste can be a trigger asthma. Effective ventilation can lower levels of humidity and reduce damp conditions in which dust mites thrive.

How can ventilation reduce allergy and hay fever triggers?

Ventilation can reduce relative humidity and damp. This can significantly reduce dust mite populations which can trigger for allergies. A filtration ventilation system can reduce pollen levels which cause hay fever.

Is there a link between black mould and asthma?

People who suffer from allergies are often more prone to the effects of mould spores in their homes. Common symptoms include sore throats, a dry cough and shortness of breath.
