Do I Believe

Yesterday was a really good day.

While I was helping customers I had several comment that I
sounded like I really believe in the products we sell. That always makes me
smile.

Every Sunday morning the first thing my wife does is strip
our bed and wash the 100% cotton sheets with the Demite laundry additive
because she has terrible allergies to dust mites. We run Austin Air cleaners in
the bedrooms 24 hours a day. If you look under the kitchen sink you will find Enviorite
cleaning products. We use the Zeolite products in the cat litter box and in our
cars.  All of our bedding is encased and
we spray our furniture with ADMS spray. The deck was cleaned with house wash
and sealed with the Surecote sealer. The air conditioner has a UV system and
custom made electrostatic air filters. Last but not least our water is purified
using Aquathin’s patented RO/DI process because I will not drink the tap water
no matter how safe the city says it is.

My wife and I, as well as our employees, believe in and use
the products we sell because we know they really do work. When evaluating new
products one of the first questions I have to answer is will I use it. If the
answer is no, then we will not carry it.

Do I believe in the products we carry? You bet I do.

Wishing you the best of health

Don’t Be A Sucker!

Unfortunately, with growing consumer awareness of allergies,
many enterprising and not so reputable people are trying to make a buck off
your suffering.  But you are informed,
you aren’t going to let them.  Beware of
the following marketing claims:

 Its
Hypoallergenic!
 
All the term
hypoallergenic means is that the materials used to construct the product were
not shown to cause allergies.  A pillow
that is sold as hypoallergenic only means the material in the pillow itself has
not been shown to cause allergies.  It
does not mean that the pillow will not harbor molds and dust mites.

 Its All Natural!  There is nothing wrong will products that are
all natural.  But, all natural does not
always mean all good.  Arsenic, poison
ivy, and AIDS are all natural.  However,
I wouldn’t recommend any of them to my friends or family.

 Its HEPA filtered!  Anytime any sales person tells you a product
is HEPA filtered, you need to ask if the filtering system is sealed.  The vacuum cleaner market is a great example
of this tactic. Many companies are marketing “allergy” vacuums with HEPA
filters that actually make problems worse than better.  This is because the units leak contaminants
before they ever reach the filter.  Don’t
take my word for it, look in Consumer Reports.

Your Car and Allergies

We spend so much time trying to make our homes allergy free we forget
about another place we spend a great deal of time in, our cars. How many
times have you gotten in your car to go to work, school or shopping and by
the time you arrive you have sinus problems, drippy nose, or
headaches.

These symptoms are often related to mold or other organisms growing in the
air-conditioning system. It may occur in cars that are only a year old. It
is often in the evaporator coils, drain pan or can also be in the ducts
themselves. Leaking or open windows or doors, often the result of aged
weather stripping, may allow moisture to build up in carpeting or
upholstery, contributing to mold growth. If this is in the back seat, the
driver may never notice. Don’t forget that dust mites live in upholstery
and carpeting regardless of where it is at.

Most of the products, Allersearch ADMS spray,  you use in you home to control
dust mite allergens can also be used in your car. Make sure you
vacuum the carpets and seats often because they collect a lot of dust. Put
your ozone generator in the car and let it run for an hour or so then turn
the AC on and let it run some more (make sure your not in the
car). If your car’s ac system  is equipped with a filter, don’t forget to change it.

Treat your car just as you do your home and when you arrive
at your destination you may find that you feel just the way you did when
you left home. Enjoy the drive.

Wishing you the best of health
