Babies and Expectant Mothers - Airfree
Babies and Expectant Mothers
Taking care of them starts before in the womb
The birth of a baby is usually a source of great anxiety to the mother, who always wonders about the steps to take so that her baby has a development as healthy as possible!
And if genetic factors are responsible for allergic predisposition, environmental factors are responsible for causing sensitization and inflammatory response.
In fact, we can find various causes for allergies in internal environments, such as mold, dust mites and pet allergens, among others.
How can a baby become allergic?
When inhaled, some substances can be transported across the placenta, such as cigarette toxins and some types of allergens. When the fetus gets in contact with these substances, an intrauterine sensitization may occur, leading to an initial allergic response. Therefore it's very important that the air quality is the best possible, at least in the places where the pregnant woman spend most of her time.
The main allergens in the air are mold and allergens from dust mite, pets and pollen.
A study conducted in England showed that it is possible to reduce the respiratory allergy symptoms in infants with predisposition to allergies or asthma. This is done by reducing the amount of allergens to which the infants are exposed in the environment.
Studies with identical twins show that there are cases where only one of the twins becomes asthmatic. This is one of the reasons that led investigators to consider that the environmental factors, and not just the genetic ones, are of great importance in the development of the disease.
Another study conducted with babies up to one year old showed that the asthmatic episodes are directly related to the exposure to dust mite allergens: the greater the exposure to dust mites, the greater the likelihood of an early development of the disease and crises.
The discomfort caused by nocturnal allergies can be bothersome to the point of interrupting the baby's sleep. And the time devoted to sleep is not only important for rest but also for the assimilation of knowledge and brain's development. Besides, it is during this period that occurs the most intense release of growth hormones.
AIRFREE® air purifiers are up to 99% efficient by destroying mold spores in the air, bacteria, viruses, ozone, allergens from dust and dust mites and other air pollutants, therefore representing a great ally in improving allergy sufferers’ quality of life.
How does it work?
It drastically reduces air allergens by incinerating microorganisms. As a result, contaminated air is dragged through the Airfree® ceramic centre and destroyed at high temperatures. This air purifying cycle is silent, requires no maintenance and is ensured by numerous tests.
Efficient - Tested and approved in real environments (without simulations) at the world’s best institutes. Airfree® destroys any microorganism that passes through the ceramic steriliser regardless of its dangerousness or size.
Silent – Absolutely no noise
Exclusive - Internationally patented technology and Airfree® exclusive, the only one that also reduces ozone concentration.
Economic - No costs with replacement of parts nor significant power costs because Airfree® has a consumption of only 48 W per hour.
Convenient - switch the device on and don't worry about it, since it doesn't require maintenance nor cleaning
No contraindications - Absolutely natural process that uses no chemicals or toxic, neither radiation, and that also does not interfere in the environment's temperature or humidity.
1. Are there any side effects?
No. Airfree’s new technology uses heat to purify the air. No side effects, no emissions, NO IONS, nor new particles are generated. Airfree® should be used in all homes and offices, quietly, constantly, and efficiently purifying the air.
2. Does Airfree eliminate bacteria and viruses?
Yes. Unlike the air filters in the market Airfree® is more efficient with the smallest microorganisms as they are easily carried by Airfree’s airflow into its heated ceramic core.
3. How does Airfree destroy dust mites?
Mould reduction in the environment causes reduction in the mould dependant dust mite population. Airfree also destroys the harmful toxins and fungus freed by dust mite feces that trigger respiratory allergies.
4. How does Airfree eliminate fungi?
As mentioned before, Airfree eliminates airborne microorganisms included fungi and spores. By eliminating spores new colonies are unlikely to develop, representing less future airborne spores.
5. How does Airfree® destroy viruses?
Those microscopic microorganisms are easily eliminated inside Airfree’s ceramic core capillaries. The temperature inside of Aifree’s capillaries is much higher than required to incinerate them. Airfree® is your greatest ally in respiratory disease prevention.
6. Does Airfree reduce tobacco smell?
Yes, Airfree reduces any kind of organic smell in the ambience including tobacco.
7. Does Airfree release any gas or chemical product?
No. Airfree’s sterilisation process is natural. Please check our website for conclusive tests regarding particles and ozone.
8. Does Airfree heat up a room?
No. Airfree does not noticeable increase room temperature. To have an idea 2 Airfrees plugged in the same room will contribute as much heat as the presence of one adult in that same room.
9. Does Airfree provoke any change in room’s the relative humidity?
10. Does Airfree need filter replacement?
11. Does Airfree consume a lot of energy?
No. Airfree’s consumption is just 52 Watts for P150, 50 Watts for P125, 48 Watts for P80, 45 Watts for P60, 50 Watts for E125, 48 Watts for E80 , 45 Watts for E60 and 40 Watts for E40.
12. Where do the microorganisms go after they are destroyed?
As all living organisms, microorganisms and their products are basically composed of carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. Since Airfree® reaches approx. 200º C, all the components are supposed to suffer a combustion process, which liberates carbon dioxide (the same product released by our respiration) and water. Some carbon (or ashes) may remain in the process. If there is some residual allergen left, we might consider that they suffer denaturation, a process resulting in loss of conformation and function. It should be noted that we are talking about reactions that occur in a microscopic level, so all these processes or by-products won’t be perceived. In this case, there is no need to worry about maintenance.
