*closed* Win a Filtrete™ Ultra Clean Large Air Purifier

In conjunction with Indoor Allergy Week which runs from 12th – 18th November 2012 which is designed to raise awareness of the impact of allergic reactions to house dust mites, mould and pets, 
 Allergy UK is offering a Filtrete™ Ultra Clean Large Air Purifier  for one of my lucky readers.


Product Features
·          99.9% Effective filtration of pollen, dust mite debris and mould spores from air passing through the filter
·          Also captures household dust, pet dander, cigarette smoke and smog as well as particles that carry odours and viruses from air passing through the filter
·          Allergy UK seal of approval
·          Filter change indicator based on filter life
·          Suitable for a room up to 34 sq m

Product Description
A user-friendly machine, the Filtrete air purifier has a filter-life indicator that lights up when it's time to change the filter. An electrostatically charged filter is specially designed for capturing large, airborne allergens like pollen, mould spores and dust mite debris from air passing through the filter. The fibres within the filter are charged to act like tiny magnets that attract and capture small particles. The unit also captures dust, bacteria, smoke, smog and particles that can carry viruses from air passing through the filter.
Enhanced filtration on a sustained basis
Filtrete room air purifiers use replaceable filters to deliver the enhanced filtration of an electrostatic filter on a sustained basis. 3M recommends a filter change every 3 months of continuous use, replacing the filter is important for maintaining the effectiveness of your Filtrete™ Room Air Purifier.
Why filter airborne particles & allergens?
There is more to keeping your home clean than just cleaning surfaces. The air quality inside your home is affected by you living and sleeping in your home, cooking and keeping pets and plants indoors. Have you ever noticed dust particles floating in a stream of sunlight? These are only a small fraction of the particles that can be found in the air in your home. Many particles are invisible to the naked eye and can lurk in the air for a long time These microscopic particles can be a small as 0.3 microns and smaller. For comparison, a human hair is about 50 microns. The particles in the air you breathe aren't just dust, it could include common allergens such as: Pollen, plant and mould spores Pet dander, smoke, and dust mite debris. Some particles can also carry bacteria and viruses. Many everyday activities in the home such as dusting, vacuuming, cooking and smoking can increase concentrations of these airborne particles.

  11. Would love this for my mum. She has been diagnosed with IPF this year, which is a horrible horrible lung disease. It's not a smoking one, they have no idea why she has it, but she's on 3 different types of inhaler now, and has to try and avoid any colds or infections. She's just bought a tumble dryer so there's no damp washing in the house, which can be bad, and this would help too, I'm sure x

This affects his immune system greatly. He is also asthmatic. I am his full time carer and suffer from dust allergy, and recently was diagnosed with glaucoma. I feel like I have had a bucket of sand in my eyes. It would be great to win something that might make life a bit easier. Its great that you have shared this opportunity with people who are all having to deal with health problems. Thank you
