World Asthma Day: Improving Asthma Awareness and Care


Today is World Asthma Day, an annual event overseen by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) that aims to improve asthma awareness and care around the world.

The World Health Organization estimates that 234 million people across the globe suffer from asthma, a respiratory condition that can cause coughing, wheezing, breathlessness and chest tightness.

It’s one of the most common chronic diseases among children and adults and while asthma cannot be cured, asthma attacks can be prevented by avoiding asthma triggers such as mold, air pollution, tobacco smoke, colds and flu.

There are also a number of household products you can purchase to help keep your home free from the pollutants and allergens that trigger asthma attacks and make your living space suitable for asthma sufferers.

The Dyson Pure Cool Link Tower is a powerful air purifier capable of removing a whopping 99.95% of allergens and pollutants from the surrounding air in addition to toxic fumes and odours, ensuring that your home is filled with lovely clean air.

The Dyson Pure Cool Link Tower is certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and Dyson is a proud sponsor of the Asthma Society of Ireland, so you can rest assured knowing this air purifier is one of the best on the market.

If a member of your family suffers from asthma then we recommend you purchase an advanced vacuum cleaner like the Dyson Ball MultiFloor Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner, which is fitted with a number of refinements designed to remove more allergens, dust and pet hair from the home!

You should also buy anti-allergy bedding such as the Microdown Anti-Allergy Pillow from the Linen Room as this will ensure everyone gets a good night’s sleep.

The above pillow is made from 100% pure cotton and is anti-dust mite and fully washable and specifically manufactured for people who suffer from asthma and allergies.

Asthma can be quite a difficult condition to live but with a good understanding of what triggers an asthma attack plus the right household products you’ll find it easy to keep your home free from allergens and pollutants.

For the very best in Vacuum Cleaners, shop in-store or online.
