Allergy Awareness Week 2024

Allergy Awareness Week 2024: How an Air Purifier Can Alleviate Hay Fever Symptoms

According to Allergy UK, around 44% of adults in the UK suffer from at least one allergy, with the UK ranking in the top 3 globally for the highest incidence of allergies. One of the most common allergies is hay fever, which around 40% of people suffer from in the UK. You can support your team members who suffer from hay fever by providing better-quality air in the workplace.

Sharp’s Plasmacluster Air Purifier filters out pollen and dust particles from the air, providing a clean and healthy working environment for all team members. This Allergy Awareness Week, discover the 5 benefits of using an Air Purifier to alleviate hay fever symptoms and promote better air quality below: 

  1. Removal of Allergens: Air Purifiers are designed to capture and remove airborne allergens such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and mould spores. By trapping these particles, Air Purifiers prevent them from circulating in the air and causing allergic reactions.
  2. Cleaner Air: Air Purifiers help to filter out pollutants and contaminants, resulting in cleaner indoor air. This is especially beneficial for individuals with allergies such as hay fever, asthma, or respiratory conditions, as it reduces the risk of exposure to triggers that can aggravate symptoms.
  3. Reduced Asthma Symptoms: For people with asthma, airborne allergens can trigger asthma attacks or worsen existing symptoms. Using an Air Purifier can help to reduce the concentration of these allergens in the air, potentially leading to fewer asthma flare-ups and improved respiratory health.
  4. Increased Productivity in the Workplace: Allergies like hay fever can significantly impact productivity in the office, with symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and congestion distracting employees from their tasks. By using Air Purifiers in the workplace, you can create a healthier environment that reduces the presence of allergens, allowing team members to focus better on their work and minimise absences due to allergy-related illnesses. Improved air quality can contribute to a more comfortable and conducive atmosphere for productivity and employee well-being.
  5. Enhanced Overall Health: Poor indoor air quality can harm overall health, contributing to respiratory problems, allergies, and other health issues. By purifying the air and removing harmful particles, the best air purifiers promote a healthier indoor environment for everyone.

What do Sharp Plasmaclusters do?

Sharp’s Plasmacluster Air Purifiers have a 3-phase system:

  • Catch - Plamacluster ions emitted from the device attach themselves to airborne microbes and particles.
  • Collect - The broken-down ion-encrusted particles are then sucked into the Plasmacluster device.
  • Filter -  Via a 3-step filtration: 
    1.    Pre-filter - absorbs dust and harmful particles
    2.    Odour filter – absorbs unpleasant odours, like cigarette smoke
    3.    Hepa filter – removes 99.97% particulate matter including pollen, allergens, viruses, mould and bacteria
