Relieve symptoms caused by home allergens


Relieve symptoms caused by home allergens


Asthma, eczema and hayfever plague about 20% of the Australian population and 1 in 3 children are affected by the age of 5. It is estimated that about 20% of the global population is allergic to house dust mites. Unfortunately, the presence of one allergy increases your chances of developing more. 

The good news is, there are lots of changes you can make in your home to alleviate the problem and it doesn’t need to include toxic chemicals.

Sources of allergies and irritants

  • Contaminants in your domestic water supply
  • Skincare, fragrances and cleaning products
  • Dust and house dust mites
  • Pests such as cockroaches, mice and rodents
  • Pets such as cats, horses, rabbits and dogs – about 10% of the population as a pet allergy.
  • Petroleum by-products
  • Pollen coming from outdoors – seasonal symptoms may be a clue here
  • Tobacco smoke – unfortunately contains hundreds of chemicals
  • Pesticide drift from outside or bought in on your shoes

Addressing the source of the issue is often enough to dramatically improve your symptoms. You have nothing to lose.

Give it a try and see what happens.

*Air quality sampling is not usually necessary and is completely optional. It is an additional cost to the standard site visit. After the on-site audit you will be able to eliminate or dramatically reduce the hazards causing allergens in your home. This is usually sufficient negating the need for air quality sampling. However, air quality sampling can also be extremely useful if mould appears to be a concern.
