Red, itchy eyes, coughing, and, of course, sneezing, are all common symptoms that are caused by airborne allergens.
These airborne allergens are tiny particulates of things like mold spores, pollens, pet dander, dust mites, and ordinary dirt that get kicked up into the air we breathe.
Different people react to different allergens, but overall between 40 and 50 million Americans suffer from allergies.
Seeing as how that's five times the population of New York City, you can imagine how much money they spend on allergy medications and doctor's visits!
But there is another way to get relief - by removing airborne allergens wherever possible.
Airgle's air purifiers are perfect for the job!
In asthma, irritation of the lungs and bronchi (air passageways in the lungs) cause the sufferer's airways to constrict.
Asthma attacks are often "triggered" by airborne allergens.
An asthma attack is almost as scary to witness as it is for the sufferer to experience - they cough, wheeze, and are often terrified because they can't catch their breath.
The good news is there are ways to reduce the frequency of attacks.
One very simple way, recommended by the American Lung Association, is to remove as many airborne "triggers" as possible from an asthma sufferer's indoor environment.
Many asthmatics who use an air purifier find that it makes a big difference.
At Airgle, we can help you breathe easier!
Bacteria and Viruses:
The air all around us is filled with germs, like bacteria and viruses.
Although we can't see them, they're in the carpet, in dust, on railings, and in places we don't even want to imagine.
Germs aren't bad - in fact, they're essential to life on Earth - but some of them can make us sick, spreading everything from the common cold to more serious bugs like the flu.
Washing your hands frequently is not enough to ward off sickness caused by these invisible microorganisms that can get into your pores, eyes, and in the very air you breathe.
To stay healthy, we recommend using a system that purifies your air, capturing many of the germs that can make you sick.
At Airgle, we can help you stay healthy with an air purifying system that works so well, you'll notice a difference in the air within only a few days.
With an Airgle air purifier, you'll be far less likely to get sick from bacteria and viruses in your home.
Whether it's car and factory exhaust in the city, cleaners in our kitchen, or pesticides from rural farms, we're usually surrounded by harmful chemicals in our air.
Chemical air pollutants can lead to allergy symptoms, asthma attacks, and worse.
They can even interfere with our bodies' natural chemical reactions and lead to serious diseases.
Some chemical pollutants can alter our DNA and have been linked to incurable illnesses that affect millions worldwide.
Indoor environments with poor air circulation concentrate these chemical pollutants, leaving them to linger in your home.
If you're interested in breathing healthier air in your home or office, an Airgle air purifier can help!
When you're hungry, there's nothing better than the smell of a delicious dinner cooking, but once the meal has been prepared, eaten, and the dishes have been washed, you don't necessarily want to keep on smelling what you ate!
Some cooking odors can be very pungent, and prolonged exposure can lead to headaches and even nausea in those with sensitive noses.
Eventually, your whole house or restaurant may become permanently scented with these smells.
This leads people to spend money on air fresheners and sprays, which can contain harmful chemicals.
See the Chemicals section to find out how good these are for you - no good at all!
So, even if you are a great cook, consider the effects that residual cooking odors can have on you and your guests.

What can make you sneeze, wheeze, and eyes as itchy as can be?
The answer is dust.
Dust is the common name for the combination of tiny particles that can hang in the air, coat household surfaces, and aggravate your allergy or asthma symptoms.
Dust can contain almost anything: pet dander, dust mites, mold spores, pollens, dried up topsoil, metal shavings, fine sand, fiberglass insulation, sawdust, and more.
Even if you don't have allergies, dust particles can irritate your lungs.
In some cases, they cause serious respiratory complications ranging from coughing to cancers like mesothelioma.
Dust removal from indoor air is one of the best ways to keep your lungs healthy, and at Airgle we have the right air purifier for you!
General Healthy Air Quality:
A long, long time ago humans started building indoor shelters for protection against rain, cold, heat, and predators.
Today, most of us are safe from those predators (unless you r neighborhood has clever bears, wildcats, etc.).
Ironically, it's our indoor shelters - our homes and offices - that are often not good for our health!
Pollutants like dust, chemicals, smog, and germs can build up indoors to levels that are downright dangerous.
This dirty indoor air can cause allergy symptoms, asthma attacks, respiratory illnesses, and much worse.
Many studies indicate that filtering indoor air is a VERY good way of maintaining the health and well-being of your family or employees.
Luckily for you, Airgle offers some very affordable ways to help you improve the general air quality in your indoor environment!
Studies show that over time, dental office workers have as much as 4 times the normal level of exposure to mercury than workers in other types of medical offices.
It's because, for over 150 years, mercury has been used in the amalgam fillings used to fix cavities.
This miniscule amount may not hurt patients so much as it hurts the dentists and dental hygienists who are exposed to the mercury toxins over a prolonged period of time in their work environment.
Some of the side effects of long-term mercury exposure include kidney disease and neurological problems.
Some studies also link mercury exposure to Alzheimer's.
It's a slow build-up that takes a long time to reveal itself, but mercury exposure can be minimized by using an Airgle air purifier.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS):
MCS is a relatively new term, but people have been experiencing this problem for centuries.
Many allergy-type symptoms aren't "classic" allergies at all, but are a reaction to man-made chemicals in the air.
These chemicals include car exhaust, industrial pollutants, hairsprays, kitchen cleaners, perfumes, and even air fresheners and scented candles.
It is often unknown whether these chemicals cause problems individually or combine to make people suffer.
The effects can range from mild allergy and asthma symptoms all the way to very serious diseases.
MCS is also known as Chemical Injury, Chemical Sensitivity, Multiple Allergy and Environmental Illness.
Whatever you call it, we here at Airgle want to stop it.
We have affordable solutions for reducing the chemicals in your indoor air - and alleviating MCS.
According to the EPA radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, contributing to 15% of lung cancer cases worldwide.
Radon can be found almost everywhere.
It's a radioactive gas that is released by the decay of naturally occurring uranium in soil and water.
Radon is odorless and invisible, and it can really build up indoors where the air circulation is poor.
The good news is that there are ways to deal with this proven carcinogen and make your indoor environment much safer!
At Airgle, we're committed to clean air, so we've designed our air purifiers to handle radon - and give you peace of mind.
Study after study has concluded that tobacco smoke contains a combination of chemicals that are harmful or even carcinogenic.
When people smoke indoors, that smoke and those chemicals build up in the air in high concentrations that are harmful to anyone who breathes there - both smokers and non-smokers.
Smoking-related illnesses including emphysema, lung cancer, high blood pressure, and more, can all develop much faster in people who spend a lot of time in smoky indoor environments.
These places include homes, private offices, and bars.
It's clear that tobacco smoke indoors poses serious health problems and should be filtered out of the air whenever possible.
At Airgle, we have affordable solutions for filtering all kinds of pollutants out of indoor air, no matter the size of the house or business.
If people are lighting up, we urge you to take a look at our air purifiers!
Ultra-fine particles are perhaps the scariest indoor air pollutants around.
They are defined as particles 0.1 microns or smaller, and they can be composed of anything from industrial chemicals to sand, metal dust, and more.
The reason ultra-fine particles pose such a problem is that they are so tiny that when we breathe them in, they are absorbed right through delicate lung tissue and into the bloodstream.
From there, they can travel throughout our bodies.
They can even penetrate into the DNA centers of our cells, potentially causing numerous problems and illnesses.
The American Heart Association has done research that shows that ultra-fine particles are dangerous enough to increase the chances of a heart attack or stroke.
The good news?
Here at Airgle we have an affordable solution to greatly reduce the amount of ultra-fine particles in your indoor air.
"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire" sounds all fine and good, but what are you breathing when you burn that wood?
Fire reduces wood and paper to ash, which can easily become airborne and then be inhaled.
What's worse, wood is often treated with chemicals which are released into the air when the wood is burned.
That balled-up newspaper you use as tinder to start that cozy fire also contains inks that can release toxic gases.
Artificial fire logs are even more full of chemicals.
And it doesn't take a fireplace to get these chemicals in your house if you live in an area prone to forest fires.
Whatever the source, it's a bad idea to let smoke build up in any indoor environment - your respiratory health can really start to suffer over time.
To keep you safe from the harmful effects of wood smoke, we at Airgle are here to help!
We offer several affordable air purifiers to clear ash and chemicals out of the air you breathe.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC):
Volatile Organic Compound.
If you think that phrase sounds sinister, you're right.
VOCs are chemicals that easily react with other organic material - like the tissue of living things.
VOCs are found in a wide variety of common household products such as paint, paint thinner, cleaning solutions, cosmetic products, waxes, fuels, and more.
When these compounds become airborne, they can quickly cause harmful levels of indoor air pollution.
According to the EPA, prolonged exposure to VOCs can result in a multitude of health problems ranging from minor irritations of the respiratory system (lungs, nose, and throat) to headaches, nausea, or even nervous system diseases and cancers.
As scary as VOCs sound, there are simple filtration solutions that greatly reduce your indoor exposure to them.
At Airgle, we're committed to making these solutions affordable for you!
Other indoor air pollutants:
We've discussed a number of indoor air pollutants that can cause health problems ranging from allergy symptoms and asthma to cancer and genetic diseases.
The fact of the matter is that any indoor environment can easily become full of pollutants and odors that can make people uncomfortable or sick.
Other common sources of these pollutants include:
- model glue
- chalkboard dust
- smelly dry-erase / whiteboard markers
- lawn care products
- cooking sprays
- kitty litter dust
- household garbage
- coffee grounds
- gym clothes
- cardboard boxes
- housing insulation material
- bug sprays and fumigation products
- and more
