Take a Deep Breath: Successful Management of Mold Allergies with Air Purifiers

Mold allergies affect a staggering number of people, with estimates of around 10% of the global population suffering from sensitivity and reactions to mold spores. In the United States alone, mold allergies impact 20-30 million Americans each year. This high rate of mold allergies demonstrates just how problematic exposure to airborne mold spores, mycotoxins, and beta-glucans can be, especially when indoor environments have dampness, humidity, or moisture issues.

With so many affected by mold allergies, it becomes imperative to implement solutions for minimizing exposure and contact with the irritating spores. This is where advanced air purifying technology comes into play. Air purifiers with innovative methods for mold spore removal and deactivation allow for dramatically improved air quality. Fewer mold spores in the air allow for fewer opportunities for allergic reactions. 

Industry leader Air Oasis offers best-in-class air purification systems scientifically proven to actively seek out and neutralize mold spores in real time. For those prone to mold allergies and their frustrating symptoms, Air Oasis air purifiers can be a life-changing solution for clearer breathing when aiming for a mold-free home.

What are Mold Allergy Symptoms?

Mold allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to harmless mold spores in the air. Inhaling the spores causes an allergic response, triggering symptoms like:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Coughing
  • Postnasal drip
  • Itchy eyes
  • Sore throat
  • Headaches

More severe reactions are also possible, including:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest tightness
  • Worsened asthma

Unfortunately, mold spores are impossible to completely avoid. They thrive in damp conditions and can be brought indoors on clothing, shoes, and pets. Mold also grows rapidly on wet surfaces like windows, bathrooms, basements, and around leaks or standing water. Improper ventilation and humidity allow indoor mold colonies to multiply, degrading indoor air quality and respiratory health.

With mold allergies making it difficult to breathe cleanly indoors, effective solutions are needed for environment control and air purification.

Air Purifiers for Mold Allergy Management

The iAdaptAir utilizes a suite of advanced technologies to provide medical-grade air purification:

  • A True H13 HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns, just like those trusted in hospitals since the 1960s.
  • Activated carbon pellets absorb VOCs, chemicals, odors and mycotoxins more effectively than cheaper foam or fiber carbons, with an extended lifespan.
  • A high-efficiency silver ion-coated filter releases ions that penetrate the cell membranes of pathogens, disrupting DNA and reducing mold, bacteria, and viruses by up to 99%. The ions continuously recycle for lasting efficacy.
  • Germicidal UV light at 265nm destroys pathogen DNA for 99.9% sterilization, just as UV has been used in hospital ORs since 1936. No ozone production.
  • Bi-polar ionization deploys positive and negative ions that actively hunt down contaminants. Ions cluster particles for easier filter trapping or settle them out by increasing weight. Ions also penetrate microorganisms to disrupt DNA and sterilize them. No static electricity or ozone is produced.

Together, this five-pronged approach provides unmatched purification without relying on chemicals or generating harmful byproducts.

Scientific Backing for Air Oasis Technology

Multiple scientific studies demonstrate the potent mold removal capabilities of Air Oasis air purifiers:

In a 2018 study, the Air Oasis iAdaptAir® was tested as an air sanitizer against the airborne fungus Aspergillus niger. After just 10 minutes enclosed with the iAdaptAir® on high, the fungus in the test space was reduced by 99.9% in all cases.

Bi-Polar® ionization technology from Air Oasis cleans the air through cold plasma ionization. Water vapor is separated into positive hydrogen and negative oxygen ions. These ions deactivate single-cell contaminants like fungi, bacteria, and viruses by interrupting their RNA and DNA. Ions then reform into H2O, while pathogenic particulate fall from the air.

Eronmor Indoor Environmental Consultants tested an Air Oasis unit equipped with bi-polar ionization technology in a mold-infested apartment. With visible mold on surfaces and 15+ mold species airborne, the purifier ran for 5 days on fan-only mode. This resulted in a 97% reduction in airborne mold, lowering the count from 1755 to 55 spores/hyphae.

The research makes clear that Air Oasis air purifiers effectively inactivate and remove mold using HEPA filtration, bi-polar ionization, and other innovative technologies.

You don’t have to take our word for it. We have over 1,000 reviews from individuals and families who have seen incredible results when using our air purifiers for mold issues and allergies.

Tamara R.

“I am recovering from both mold illness and Lyme disease, and the features on the iAdaptair units help my immune system tremendously.”

Carrol H.

“We use this in the cabin of our 27ft Catalina sailboat to rid the air and surfaces of mold and mildew. Sitting closed up in the water, it was pretty smelly. This worked beautifully. No smell!!!”

Michele E.

“Air Oasis reduced the musty mildew smell in my house basement. Very good and reasonably priced solution for mold growth in damp basements.”

Tips for Using Air Oasis Air Purifiers

To maximize the mold-fighting power of Air Oasis air purifiers:

  • Place the unit near known mold problem areas, like bathrooms, basements, kitchens, etc. Mold spores are densest in close proximity to the source.
  • Ensure the size of the unit is correct for the room size you are purifying.
  • Run the air purifier continuously since mold spores are always floating through indoor air.
  • Use in conjunction with other humidity and moisture control practices to limit mold growth at the source.

With regular use, Air Oasis air purifiers provide superior protection against airborne mold spores and the allergy symptoms they cause. Over time, indoor air quality remains cleaner and healthier.

Take a Deep Breath with Air Oasis

Taking control of mold allergies requires an active solution like Air Oasis air purifiers. Five powerful technologies destroy mold spores and colonies instead of just temporarily trapping some particles. This allows for dramatically cleaner air and reduced allergy symptoms.

Experience the difference yourself – shop the Air Oasis line of iAdaptAir purifiers. Breathe freely again in mold-free air. Don't just filter your air – sanitize it with Air Oasis. Your lungs will thank you with each deep, clean breath.
