How to make your home allergen-free during winters

Winter is a time that makes you want to stay tucked in and warm in the comfort of your home. However, shutting your windows against the cold can bring along its own set of problems. If you feel like your nose is stuffy and it’s difficult to breathe, your headaches, and your eyes are itchy, you may be a victim of winter allergies. The lack of ventilation makes it difficult for fresh air to enter your home and, thus, stale air and allergens continue to circulate indoors.

What happens during the winter?

There are allergens in the air indoors, which include fine dust, smoke or cooking fumes, dust mites, mould, VOC’s, perfumes, aerosol sprays and animal dander. And it’s during the winter months that we spend most of our time with them while cooped up indoors. Hence allergies caused by these are on the rise when the weather gets cooler.

Children, the elderly, and people suffering from asthma and other respiratory disorders are more vulnerable to these indoor allergens. While the immune system of children is in its developing stage, that of asthma patients and the elderly are weak. Thus, the effects of indoor allergens are heightened for them.

How winter allergies affect people

Symptoms like cold, sneezing, irritated throat, itchy eyes, etc. may be caused due to allergens. Some people react to mould and dust mites, in the same way, they would to pathogens. The antibody response is what causes symptoms like wheezing, watery eyes, coughing or sneezing. If the congestion is bad enough, it may also cause headaches and sinus pressure.

When you know it’s an allergy and not a cold

It is hard to tell whether the sniffles you’re bearing with are an allergy to dust or if it’s cold. Sometimes, it may be easy to distinguish between a viral infection and an allergy on the basis of body ache and fever, which may accompany a cold. An allergic reaction may cause you to experience itchy eyes, sniffles, sore throat and even rashes. Of course, it is recommended that you consult your doctor for an accurate diagnosis and get treatment for relief.

What to do about indoor allergens?

But prevention is better than cure, isn’t it? While braving the cold to grab some fresh air may not be a very tempting option, there are some ways in which you can fight allergens and curb indoor air pollution.

  • Vacuum your home frequently: Dust mites are microscopic creatures which are not visible to the naked eye and live in carpets, upholstered furniture bedding and warm spaces. Frequent vacuum cleaning of your home is the best way to eliminate them. Bring home Euroclean vacuum cleaners that deep cleans and eliminates these allergens thoroughly and easily. One of the primary features of Euroclean range is that it offers powerful suction that removes embedded dust. They come with a wide range of accessories that are ideal for varied cleaning requirements.
  • Keep your pets clean and in check: Pets carry a truckload of allergy-triggering proteins in their fur, dander, saliva and urine. Keeping them off your furniture and giving them a bath on a weekly basis are two ways to help limit your exposure to allergens.
  • Keep moisture to a minimum: Fungi & Mould thrive in damp places like your bathroom, kitchen and basement. Hence, reducing moisture indoors is key to inhibiting mould growth. Keeping surfaces dry with regular wipe downs, throwing away spoiled food from your refrigerator and turning on the exhaust fan while cooking are some of the ways by which you can control mould growth.
  • Get an air purifier: One of the most effective ways to get rid of allergens in your indoor air is by bringing home an air purifier. The Dr. Aeroguard SCPR 300 – Air Purifier is certified for the highest standards of air quality by gui-Lab Germany. With its 9-stage filtration system, it keeps your indoor air free of microorganisms, pollen, pet dander and other harmful pollutants in the air.

A healthy beginning to a healthy year

‘Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life’.

We are at the end of 2017. Another fruitful year has passed by. With a bagful of memories, we are all set to welcome 2018 with open arms and optimism.

As a common practice, people are ready with their list of ambitious resolutions.

Some promise to learn a musical instrument in a month, some plan on quitting smoking or alcohol, while others choose to take up a hobby. These resolutions sound fantastic on paper but fulfilling them with diligence and sincerity is something that Only a few achieve. In addition to this, people are drawn towards making bigger and better resolutions, ignoring the small and simple ones.

Joyce Meyer once rightly claimed, ‘I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you’. So, this New Year, how about you add a few simple healthy resolutions to your list, and let the healthier you enjoy 2018 with good health!

  1. Water is your best friend; drink it

Drink adequate amount of water—this is a fact that has been established by many experts and health specialists. Stay constantly hydrated to maintain essential bodily functions and feel fresh. Ensure that you have a water bottle with you at all times, and consciously remind yourself to drink water at regular intervals. Slice fresh pieces of cucumber, oranges or lemons to add some flavour and nutrition to your water. Bring home Dr Aquaguard Water Purifiers and ensure that you and your family are drinking only healthy water.

  1. Life is too short to stress out

As you enter the New Year, make sure that your stressful days reduce in number. No matter how eventful your day was, if it is combined with stress, it takes a huge toll on your health. Chronic stress can result in insomnia, depression, obesity, heart disease, etc. To avoid this, start small sessions of meditation, spend some quality time with your friends and family & participate in relaxing activities (vacation, spa, etc.)

  1. Reboot your fitness regime

Losing weight is one of the most common resolutions! Regular workouts and gyming sessions are planned out well to achieve your magical number. However, as the excitement of the New Year fades away so does the enthusiasm of going to the gym. Hence, to combat this problem, set smaller goals for yourself. Chart out a jogging or an evening walk schedule that can be achieved with minimal efforts. Starting with this gives you a great head start to move on to physically exhausting exercises.

  1. Breathe in healthy air, breathe out worries

The alarming headlines, thick smog in the air and the sudden drop in air quality has left many people worried. Greenpeace’s report named Airpocalypse says, ‘As many as 1.2 billion deaths take place every year due to air pollution’. It’s high time we take a few steps towards analysing the quality of the air we breathe in and ensure that it’s healthy. This coming year, ensure the air you and your family breathe indoors is purified through Dr Aeroguard Air Purifiers. You can also bring home a few air purifying plants to circulate fresh air in your home.

  1. A tidy house leads to a tidy mind

Stressful schedules and endless errands lead to a cluttered home. A cluttered home can result in dust mites breeding in your bed and sofa & accumulated dirt in hard-to-reach surfaces. How about stepping into a new year with a de-cluttered and tidy home? Begin the new chapter of your year with a spotless and healthy home. Invest in the Euroclean range of vacuum cleaners that help to deep clean your home and make it a healthy living space.

A new year is a fresh start to a new life. So, a few simple steps towards a healthier life will definitely help you and your loved ones have a happy and healthy year ahead.

Ways to Stay Healthy During Winter

Prepared or not, winter is finally upon us and with it the exciting yet busy festive season. While juggling between work, shopping and events like family dinners and parties, it’s easy to put health on the backburner. Add to this the chilly weather, the increasing incidents of smog blankets, and the generally poor quality of air in cities around the country, and you’ve got yourself plenty of reasons to fall ill.

However, with the right precautionary measures, you can evade the cold, flu, and several other allergies and illnesses that threaten to dampen your holiday spirit. Here’s how you do it:

  • Stay hydrated

Most of us forget to drink water at regular intervals during the day, this worsens during the winter as we don’t feel thirsty as much. While the summer heat reminds us of how thirsty we are, the sly winter cold doesn’t.

While it’s important to drink a lot of water during this period, it’s crucial that you ensure the water you’re drinking is free of contaminants that include synthetic organic compounds, sewage particles, chemical waste, and several others. You can ensure that the water you drink is free of these harmful pollutants with Dr.Aquaguard.

  • Eat healthy and Exercise

It’s that time of the year when your bowl of veggies is replaced by Christmas cake and candy, and that daily jog is scrapped to accommodate a few extra minutes under the blanket in this cosy climate. This weather has most of us buried under blankets snacking on junk food, which leads to all those extra pounds.

And while it’s ok to indulge a little, make sure you compensate for your lapse in healthy living with the right diet and exercise. Cook with mushrooms and spices such as garlic, ginger and cilantro as they have immune-boosting health benefits. Eat fibre- and omega 3-rich items like apples, oats, fish and nuts.

As for the exercise bit, plan your exercise in advance. Write your weekly exercise routine on Sunday, and try to stick to it. If you’re too lazy to visit the gym, workout at home.

  • Keep home clean and free of dust mites

Dust mites, mould and pet dander are the primary causes of allergies. Your mattress is their refuge and your occupancy is their means of receiving the humidity they need to sustain themselves through this dry weather. Mites require just an hour and a half of moist air to survive and three hours to reproduce.

You can counter this with a weekly, hot water wash of your bedsheets and blankets accompanied by a regular sweep from a Euroclean vacuum.

  • Maintain healthy indoor air

We’re all aware of the recent smog clouds that have been descending over our towns and cities. While we can do little to effect a change in these environmental hazards, we have complete control over the air in our homes.

Most of the time, the windows and doors of your home are going to be shut against the harsh winter winds. However, outdoor germs somehow make their way in and are circulated and re-circulated around the house. This process can be put to an end by simply implementing a few indoor air purifying methods. Getting a proper air purifier, like Dr.Aeroguard, always helps. Air purifiers keep your indoor air fresh and clean. You may also consider getting houseplants, activated charcoal and salt lamps, which are highly effective natural air purifiers.

  • Schedule an early bedtime  

We all know how winter makes the days shorter and nights longer. Our body responds to this too, adjusting its rhythm accordingly. You may use the long evening to ease yourself into a relaxed disposition before going to bed. You can also try purifying the air in your bedroom with an air purifier like Dr.Aeroguard. This will ensure you sleep soundly and feel rested & fresh the next morning.

You’ve been good and stayed healthy all year, why drop the ball now? With these five easy-to-do tips, you can keep your good health all through the chilly winter months while still having a good time.

The young minds of India deserve to breathe in healthy air!

“Children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.” – Nelson Mandela

Children are the ones who have the ability to transform the society with their free will, imagination, creativity, and unique thought process. They are our most valuable resources and it is our responsibility to nurture, protect, and educate them.

On one side, the world is inventing brilliant technology to shape these minds, while the other side is failing to keep the environment healthy for them. On the basis of a report, 92% of the world population lives in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits. Talking about a similar issue, Delhi reports around 30,000 deaths annually due to air pollution, making it the fifth leading cause of deaths in India.

The air quality in Delhi has hit an emergency level of PM 2.5 at 397 mg/cubic metre which is six times higher than the ‘safe to breathe’ limits. The nation’s capital is deluged in fatal smog that has resulted in many accidents and life-threatening diseases.

Studies have shown that children are at highest risk of facing multiple hazards due to this condition. Their vulnerability to respiratory diseases is primarily because of the following reasons:

  1. High exposure to air pollution due to extended time spent outdoors.
  2. They have fragile lungs which are still developing.
  3. They inhale more pollutants per kilogram of body weight than adults.
  4. As respiratory tracts are narrower in children, irritation may result in proportionately greater airway obstruction.

In order to combat this tough situation and safeguard children from any type of allergies and respiratory concerns, parents can take the following measures:

  1. Reduce stepping outdoors

If you see an increased level of pollution outside your home, avoid stepping outside unless it is absolutely necessary.

  1. Invest in an air pollution mask

In case you or your loved ones wish to step outside, do wear an anti-pollution mask to avoid inhaling harmful pollutants.

  1. Increase ventilation

With a proper ventilation system in your home, the indoor air pollution can be minimized to a greater extent. Use an exhaust fan while cooking to suck all the cooking fumes outside your home. You can also go for trickle vents to circulate air in your home and help in reducing the chances of indoor air pollution.

  1. Bring home houseplants

It is believed that houseplants can purify and rejuvenate air in your homes. A few of the preferred plants that can help in cleansing the air inside your home are Peace Lily, Lady Palm, Bamboo Palm, Spider Plant, etc.

  1. Deep clean your home

Ensure your home is thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. The absence of dust mites, dirt and allergens will keep the air inside your home purified.

  1. Invest in an air purifier

Bring home an air purifier that will purify your indoor making it free from pollutants, contaminants, and smoke.

As breathing gets tough for adults, it gets tougher for the young ones. The future of our country is in danger and we need to do something to take care of it. So this children’s day, let’s take a step towards safeguarding children’s health by taking all the precautionary measures. You can start by bringing home Dr Aeroguard SCPR 300 and ensure that your little ones breathe in purified air.

A healthy heart is a happy heart!

In this fast-paced life, no one has the time to stop. Compelling timelines, never-ending meetings, to-do lists, responsibilities, and the chase to achieve our goals, all of it consumes most of our time. While it’s healthy to be competitive and strive for the best, it’s not healthy to have a stressful lifestyle. Harmful habits like smoking, unhealthy diet and not getting regular sleep add on to the stress on your body. All of this takes an extreme toll on your heart’s health. It is observed that cardiovascular diseases are the major causes of mortality globally, including India. So how do we look after our heart better?

Let’s take a look at the list of things which we can include in our daily life to have a healthy heart:

  1. Quit smoking today:

Smoking is extremely bad for your health. It affects the vessels that supply blood to your heart and other organs. It also damages blood vessels and causes irreparable damage to the heart. Even passive smoking increases the risk of a stroke by 30%. It’s high time you take care of your heart. So make your life healthier and go smoke-free.

  1. Reduce your alcohol consumption:

Alcohol consumption affects only your liver, you may say. But excessive alcoholic consumption can  result in Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy. This condition results in dilation and thickening of your left ventricles. Although the onset of this heart condition occurs in a much later stage of life, it is wise to cut down on your drinks to safeguard your heart from any future complications.

  1. Keep in check your cholesterol and blood pressure:

Increased blood pressure and excessive cholesterol can also take their toll on your heart. As both of these conditions are risk factors for a heart disease, it is advised to keep them in check with regular health check-ups and change in lifestyle.

  1. Get active:

A day job doesn’t give you enough time to work out regularly. However, simple workouts like brisk walking, and jogging helps you avoid the risk of health conditions. In addition to a healthy work out, spending some time out in fresh air is good for you.It makes you feel relaxed, and uplifts your mood. Similarly, we must also make sure that the air we breathe indoors is pure to keep ourselves healthy! To ensure healthy air inside your home, invest in a trustworthy air purifier like Dr. Aeroguard to safeguard you and your family from air pollution, allergens and VOCs.

  1. Keep yourself calm by meditating:

Along with a healthy diet and regular exercise, meditation can help reduce stress and anxiety. It helps to lower blood pressure, breathing rate, adrenaline levels and cortisol levels, producing a sense of calm. Meditation helps you to rebalance and stay centered, which is important for a healthy and happy life.

  1. Enjoy a healthy and a nutritious meal every day:

Make healthier diet choices daily to keep your health in check. Your diet is the source of nutrition for your body, and junk food will not suffice in meeting those requirements. Choose healthier fats, less salt and fresh fruits and vegetables which will enable your body to perform optimally and to regulate bodily functions appropriately. When cooking at home, ensure that you use purified water to prepare your meals, and eliminate the risk of waterborne diseases, bacteria or new age contaminants from entering your body. To do so, bring home Dr. Aquaguard water purifier to give you and your family the assurance of drinking healthy water.

Fast paced life and its various aspects can challenge you both mentally and physically, leaving you in constant state of stress and exhaustion. The onus of balancing out work and play in our lives, is in our control. A few simple changes in lifestyle, improved diet, and meditation can all help you to take care of your heart. This World Heart Day, do your heart a favour. Take a step towards a healthy heart and a happy life.

Ways to keep yourself healthy this Navratri!

Navratri marks the celebration of the nine forms of Goddess Shakti. People in India bring in the festival with much excitement and vibrancy. Along with other fun activities like garba and dandiya, fasting is an integral part of the event. While some people fast for religious reasons, the others do it to detoxify and cleanse the body to build its immunity for the next season. Hence, there are chances of people not being able to keep track of the food they eat and end up indulging in unhealthy cravings.

Here’s a quick guide to staying healthy and energetic during Navratri –

1. Stay hydrated-

Make this your mantra for the nine days to come. Drink loads of coconut water, green tea, buttermilk, lemon juice, and vegetable and fruit juices. Keep yourself healthy and energetic during the festival as you indulge yourself in activities of celebration. Bring home Dr. Aquaguard water purifier today as during all this process a water purifier can help you maintain adequate levels of body fluids and salt by providing healthy drinking water.

2. Plan your meals and eat right-

An abrupt change in diet can impact your body, so it’s vital that you plan your meals. Consume fruits and avoid oily foods. Preparing food and sweets during this festival with clean and healthy drinking water can ensure the good health of your family.

3. Take frequent meals-

It is better to take smaller and frequenter meals. Prolonged fasting can cause weakness, anaemia, fatigue, headaches, and lack of energy. The frequent meals maintain blood sugar levels and ensure that you are fuelled throughout the day. Some healthy mid-day munchies can help keep those hunger pangs at bay.

4. Clean your home-

A clean and a tidy home is essential before the Navratri celebration starts, as it is believed that Goddess Durga visits home that radiates positive energy. Try Euroclean vacuum cleaners as it aids the objective of having a deep clean home, which is not only a reason to welcome the Goddess but also to invite over friends and family.

5. Sound sleep is essential-

Wake up every day of the festival rejuvenated as Dr. Aeroguard air purifier’s clean and healthy air helps you to have a sound and serene sleep after the celebrations. Book a demo now for Dr. Aeroguard air purifier as it also allows elimination of all the smoke after pujas or the traditional havan.

Now that you are equipped with the do’s and don’ts for this Navratri, grab your dandiyas and get your garba moves on!

Here’s how you can improve the life of your water purifier

In this day and age, where everything around us is polluted, you need to take help from technology to lead a healthy life. Water purifiers are one of the most important domestic technologies which provide you with clean and purified water. They eliminate impurities and bacteria and give you and your family healthy water. However, water purifiers can efficiently function only when they are maintained well.

In order to maintain good per performance of your water purifiers and avoid any problems/ potential problems in the future, follow these simple tips.

 1. Regularise your water purifier services

It is highly essential for you to get your water purifier serviced regularly as it prevents permanent damage in the future. To maintain its efficient functionality, one can opt for servicing packages which allows service technicians to periodically keep a check on your water purifier. They can check for any concerns and fix them so that your family can drink safe and healthy water.

2. Get your reject water valves cleaned thoroughly

If you have an RO water purifier at home, it is essential to get the reject water valves regularly cleaned. These valves separate the excess TDS from your drinking water, and eliminate it from the water purifier. Hence, for the provision of clean and healthy water, allow only trained technicians to clean it thoroughly.

3. Get your reject water valves cleaned thoroughly

Pseudo parts or duplicates can impact the efficiency of the purification process of your water purifiers. As these parts are not authentic, they could cause damage to the machine in the long run, and in the event of a breakdown, would not be covered by the company. So to make sure your water purifier is functioning efficiently, insist on only authentic and high quality cartridges.

4. Maintain the purifier’s storage tank well

RO purifiers are very low maintenance, but for their optimum performance it is necessary to clean the storage water tank and drain any water stored beyond 48 hours . Failing to do so may result in stale water that is a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. A clean storage tank will ensure that all such chances of contamination are eliminated.

5. Make sure the filters of your water purifiers are maintained well

If the source of your water constantly keeps changing or if the water turbidity is too high, it damages the mechanism of your water purifier. Hence, one needs to ensure that your water purifiers’ filters are maintained regularly.

It is important to know that just by owning a water purifier doesn’t necessarily mean that your water is clean. You need to maintain it well by servicing it regularly on the basis of your servicing package and the type of water purifier. If you notice any change in the flow of water or taste of water from your purifier, get your water purifier serviced as soon as possible. If you are a Eureka Forbes’ customer, you can place a service request through our website or give us a call on 1860-266-1177.

 

Innovative technology that makes your water healthy!

The human body is an incredible machine, performing various processes throughout one’s life. Water plays an essential role in certain primary functions of the body and is needed for the different organs to function properly. Almost 70% of the human body is made up of water. When water is such an integral part of our body and its functioning, its imperative that we consume pure, safe and healthy water.

As innovation is at its peak and technology around the globe is evolving, the world of water purifiers has benefited greatly. Ordinary water purifiers promise to purify water, making it safe to drink. They remove bacteria and germs from the water too. But, this purified water that we consume, fails to provide our body with much needed nutrients.

The latest Dr. Aquaguard range of water purifiers, brings Advanced Mineral GuardTM, NutritronTM and BiotronTM technology, making your water not just pure, but healthy too.
Let’s take a closer look at the technology utilized in the water purifiers:

a. Mineral GuardTM
Ordinary water purifiers available in the market not only eliminate the bacteria and viruses but also the natural minerals dissolved in the water. Minerals are highly essential for proper functioning of the body and biological processes. Deficiency or lack of these minerals could cause neurological concerns, tremors, loss of appetite, personality changes, etc. Dr.Aquaguard’s advanced Mineral Guard TechnologyTM goes a step further and not only purifies the water but also retains natural minerals during the purification process.

b. BiotronTM
Water molecules are present in nature in the form of clusters. These clusters are difficult for the body to absorb, as they cannot easily penetrate the cell walls in the human body. This makes the absorption rate of water low. The new age BiotronTM Technology assists in breaking down complex water molecules into fine micro-clusters. The micro clusters which are smaller in size enable the water molecules to penetrate the cell walls, thereby making water more ‘bio-available’.

c. NutritronTM
We receive the maximum amount of nutrients from food. However, it is also true that water consists of many important nutrients that are essential for us. The advanced NutritronTM Technology is a combination of silver-impregnated, activated carbon granules that release essential natural minerals (calcium, magnesium) &micro-nutrients (copper and zinc) in water. This technology fortifies your drinking water making it extremely healthy! In addition to this, it balances the pH level of the water ensuring your daily dose of health.

Bring home the Dr. Aquaguard range of water purifiers and experience this advanced patented technology first-hand. So this monsoon season, book a free home demo and protect your family’s health here – http://bit.ly/2rIX5OP

Steam Cleaning: The perfect way to deep clean your house

Everyone wishes their family enjoys a healthy lifestyle and cleanliness tops the list when trying to achieve that. The advancements in technology have facilitated multiple processes that help you attain optimum hygiene for your home. One such nifty process is ‘Steam Cleaning’.

Steam cleaning, is deep cleaning without the use of any chemical cleaning agents. It is one of the most effective methods to remove embedded dust, dirt and bacteria.  It is a foolproof cleaning technique, where the steam penetrates surfaces and cleans them efficiently, making it one of the best ways to deal with stubborn and difficult stains.

An environment-friendly product, Steam cleaners clean, sanitise and disinfect using high-temperature dry steam vapour. Hot steam penetrates the pores of the materials or surfaces and cleans more thoroughly than traditional cleaning, that too without the use of chemicals. When the dry steam vapour comes in contact with the surface being treated it reaches to the depth to disinfect & sanitise it. The lack of chemicals in the cleaning process is a huge plus for those who are allergic to them or want to reduce the toxicity in their homes, especially if you have children or elderly at home.

Steam cleaning eliminates all the germs, viruses, bacteria, allergens, mould and mildew on the surface to be treated. The steam vapour is even known to kill dust mites that live in upholstery, bedding and carpets.

One of the first things you notice once you start using a steam cleaner is the absence of any potentially harmful chemical residue. The surfaces you clean are no longer doused with remnants from chemical-based cleaners. The chemical-based cleaners are harmful to the environment because they leave a layer of residue after cleaning, which tends to attract new dirt, making it necessary to clean more often. This results in more work and isn’t cost effective in the long run. Also, the more you clean with chemical-based cleaners the more damage is done to the surfaces being cleaned and the environment we live in.

Steam cleaning is not just restricted to upholstery and carpets. Here are a few surfaces you can efficiently clean with a steam cleaner –

  • Greasy Surfaces in the kitchen or bathrooms
  • Car interiors and wheels
  • Taps, wash basins, mirrors, etc
  • Tiled floors & walls, window cracks, door frames, shower screens and other hard to reach places
  • Tough stains in the kitchen on sinks, cabinets, chimney, etc
  • Curtains & upholstery, creases & odour from clothes
  • Jewellery

So it is evident that steam cleaning is a superior approach with benefits of deep cleaning, cost efficiency and is environment friendly too. Make an informed choice and bring home the eco-friendly method of steam cleaning. Try it today – http://bit.ly/2xGyBbv
