I am a chronic allergy sufferer. I have had allergies as long as I remember. When I moved to South Korea in 2008, my allergies peaked and never really went back to normal. I was in a specialists office 3 times a week having my sinuses cleaned out and was frequently prescribed antibiotics just so I could breathe normally and keep illness and infections at bay. When I was finally tested for allergens, my dust mite allergy was so high it wasn’t even countable. What this means for me is that carpets and bedding make me feel ill like you can’t believe. Because of my allergies, I almost never sleep in a bed, preferring a less cushioned, less linen infused area such as my living/dining area.
When I received the Airfree Onix 3000, I received the possibility of an allergen-free bedroom.
So, what is in my bedroom that makes it a bio-hazard? 3 hairy, stinky cats that spray, a cat box, and the beginnings of mildew in my bathroom. Not to mention… DUSTMITES! Lucky for me, the Airfree Onix 3000 promises to eliminate all of the above!
I have been using the Airfree Onix 3000 on and off for several months, testing it in different weather and seasons. It definitely helped with the pet odor and cut down on dust motes in the air. Paired with frequent washings of my bed linens, and vacuuming of the carpet in my bedroom, it has definitely left the room feeling more fresh and breathable. I actually am able to sleep in my room for consecutive nights now!
I personally have more trouble with allergies in spring and summer and this is when I have found the Airfree Onix 3000 to help me the most. Because the Airfree Onix 3000 does purify the air through use of a heat source, I found that it pretty drastically dries out the air. For me, dryness exacerbates some of my symptoms, so during the dry winter I had to stow away the Airfree Onix 3000. However, when I pulled it out in spring and summer I found it was much more helpful due to the increased moisture in the air. I am able to leave it running and enjoy a less smelly, less dusty, and less dustmite-y bedroom during these more humid months.
I would recommend the Airfree Onix 3000 to chronic allergy sufferers who are not sensitive to arid climates. Airfree Onix 3000 coupled with clean bed linens definitely improves the environment and makes everyday life a little more bearable in the bedroom for the chronically congested.
