Give the Gift of Allergy Free Blankets from Allergy Asthma Technology this Holiday Season

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 14, 2012

Although the winter season is generally when allergy sufferers get a break from the annoyance of outdoor allergens, other allergens can still lurk indoors and affect those prone to allergies. Allergy Asthma Technology’s allergy free blankets and bedding prevent allergens from latching to or penetrating its surface, making them great gifts for allergy sufferers this holiday season.

Common household allergens typically pertain to pet dander or dust mites. There are certain chemicals found in the dander of pets, as well as in their saliva, that can trigger an allergic reaction in humans. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 15% to 30% of people with allergies have an allergic reaction to cats and dogs. Symptoms of pet allergies can range from mild to severe, with a majority of allergic reactions causing itching of the eyes or nose, stuffed or runny nose, and sometimes facial swelling. Though it is uncommon for individuals with pet allergies to own pets, it does sometimes occur. Allergy free blankets will prevent pet dander from sticking to the surface of the blankets, as well as rejecting the permeation of pet dander, keeping allergens locked out and the blanket allergy free.

Another rather common household allergen is dust mites. Dust mites are microscopic insects that feed on dead skin particles from humans and animals, and can inhabit carpets, furniture, blankets, and bedding. Although the mites do not directly affect humans, there is a chemical in their waste that if inhaled causes an allergic reaction in humans. Symptoms from dust mite allergens are similar to that of allergies from pollen or ragweed, etc., with itchy eyes and nose, sneezing, runny nose, puffy eyes, and sometimes asthma. A way to eliminate or reduce dust mites is to obtain allergy bedding with a high thread count in order to prevent the insects from entering. Allergy free blankets are made with the same technology that will ensure allergy-free lounging or sleeping.

Allergy Asthma Technology’s allergy free blankets are made of tightly woven fabric to create a 230 thread count, and inserted with down. The feathers that are injected into the blankets go through an intensive procedure in which they are treated with special hyperclean technology that allows the down to be washed repeatedly, thoroughly removing allergens. It is a common misconception that feathers, or down bedding is not suitable for those allergic to dust mites, when the opposite is true. Down bedding only affects those that are allergic to feathers, specifically. These blankets can be used for lounging on the couch, but are also sufficient enough to use as a light comforter. They are long and wide enough to fit on beds, as well as be able to be tucked under mattresses, for secure bedding. Allergy Asthma Technology also carries bedding in a variety of different forms, including mattress pads, pillows, sheets, comforters, and more.
