    I have severe allergies myself…I should own stock in Claritin! Washing your rugs can help, air purifers can help, but still there are certain restrictions to how big of a rug you can wash, what temperature, etc. Not to bug you, but I work at Halo (I do the website)…and I’m not getting paid to say this…but with dust mites being the number one source of indoor allergens, having a vacuum that can kill those creepy-crawlies at their source with ultraviolet light can give you invaluable peace of mind; I know it does with my allergies. Our website has tons of great information if you wanted to learn more – If you do stop by our website and still want to learn more, let me know – at I’d be delighted to take the time to help. Thanks for your time!

  2. In June of last year my nine year old son was diagnosed with severe asthma. I found myself sitting up with him every night just listening to him breath. His wheezing got so bad that you could hear it on the other end of our house. He would sneeze continuously every morning. Being the mother that I am I would find myself walking into his bedroom all during the night to check on him. All the doctors would do was keep prescribing medicines that seem to do nothing for the problems. That is when my friend told me about Pionair Air Purifiers. I put a Pionair unit in my son’s room and we have not had a problem since he has went to having to use his inhaler several times a day to sometimes not having to use his inhaler for months. You can find this air unit at
