After having heard of the Plasmacluster Ion Technology some months back, I have always been curious how this will be of help for the hubby who has acquired allergic asthma two years ago. As I mentioned in a few posts back, it’s been bad that when his asthma was left untreated because of his refusal to go to the doc (with hopes that it’ll just go away), it actually worsened to chronic bronchitis. It’s happened twice. These days, he can’t leave home without his rescue meds, in any event his asthma gets triggered. While there’s no way we can control the pollution outside our home, the idea of Sharp Plasmacluster’s ability to keep our home environment under control can be quite impressive. I’ve been using a low-tech air purifier for years now but it does not seem to be of any help when it comes to mites, bugs and other allergens.
I recently attended the Sharp Plasmacluster Media Launch in New World Hotel, where the brand introduced two new additions to its line of Pasmacluster Ion Technology. The idea of having this measure of control within your home with the promise of unique air purifying solution that’s meant to reduce asthma symptoms and other diseases caused by poor air inside the home, is too inviting for me not to give attention to. Especially after having to go nights upon nights of sleepless nights worrying over the hubby’s incessant asthma coughing. As opposed to majority of asthma sufferers, his isn’t the wheezing kind. It’s incessant coughing and it can get really bad. We’re grateful that he hasn’t had attacks in months. 🙂
During the launch, Dr. Fredelita Carreon-Asuncion, Lay Educator on Philippine Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, Inc. (PSSAI), spoke on the prevalence of asthma and allergies in the Philippines. This chronic condition can cause a variety of respiratory symptoms, including coughing, wheezing, a tightening in the chest, and difficulty breathing. It is a very common condition, with almost 11 million sufferers in the Philippines alone. That’s roughly 1 in 10 Filipinos. This condition can be exacerbated by a number of common elements found in any home: dust, dust mite allergens, mold, and other airborne allergens, which can’t be eliminated by surface cleaning alone.
Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier UV+
Powered by the exclusive Plasmacluster Ion Technology, this air purifier deactivates up to 99% of airborne allergens, viruses, and bacteria while reducing unwanted odors. Air Purifier UV+ is also equipped with a True HEPA Filter, which can capture 99.97% of particles as tiny as 0.03 microns such as smoke particles, dust, pet dander, and pollen.
The Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier UV+ also has a 5-step mosquito-catching mechanism: an effective, chemical-free way to eliminate mosquito threats indoors. Its black exterior emits UV light, both of which attract mosquitoes indoors.
Dengue incidence has been climbing up this past few months, our son even had his second episode with it in July, Dengue is really something we should watch out for. Despite our vigilance, we still were not spared. Even considering the fact that our home have screen windows and doors. I’m seriously considering to avail of this for our home.
Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier UV+ has user-friendly control panel too
Plasmacluster Mite Catcher
Dust mites are the microscopic insects with a lifespan of two to three months. They are all over beds, pillows, carpets, and upholstery. Vacuuming doesn’t remove them from fabric surfaces, where they live, eat, breed, and die. Their remains and excrement (from eating dead skin cells) are known allergens, which can cause itchiness, rashes, and respiratory symptoms in people with asthma and dust mite allergies.
The Sharp Plasmacluster Mite Catcher has a Heat & Clean Function that effectively eliminates dust mites and other allergens on the bed and other textile surfaces. It releases up to 60°C heat to weaken the dust mites’ hold on fibers, while also sanitizing the mattress and reducing its odors. Plasmacluster Ions are also released, deactivating bacteria and microbes living in mattresses, pillows, and cushions. The powerful Cyclone Suction, a strong centrifugal suction force, then removes all particles, pesky dust mites included, from mattresses and other such surfaces.
The Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier UV+ and Mite Catcher will soon be available at Anson’s, Abenson, and SM Appliance Centers in the Greater Manila Area this November 2015.
