was thrilled to be sent two of the Philips
Anti-allergy products, as an asthmatic it’s very important to keep our
house free of allergens, which could aggravate my condition. When you see how much dirt and dust these
products clear up its no wonder I generally feel healthier and less reliant on
my asthma medication than I was before.

PowerPro Duo (RRP £220) was such a time saver, it makes vacuuming much easier
as its cordless and has a little handheld you can detach, a perfect solution
for us so I can vacuum the back of our fabric sofa. Having a dog her hair is a real issue, especially this time of
year when she seems to be moulting (I don’t think she got the memo that summer
isn’t on its way just yet!). Since we
reviewing this vacuum it’s been a breeze keeping the sofa looking clean and
like the fact that it filters out 90% of bacteria, pollens and allergens so it
feels like an excellent choice for keeping our family healthy. If you want to look at alternatives rather
than medication for controlling asthma and allergies its worthwhile seeing the
difference investing in products like these can make to your condition, getting
rid of triggers means I do not need to be as reliant on my asthma inhalers.
have made a little video so you can see the PowerPro Duo in operation:
is very simple to use, from charging to emptying, nothing is difficult to
operate. It is lightweight to manoeuvre
around the room, making housework a more pleasant experience overall. It’s refreshing vacuuming without moving
furniture because the vacuum has been designed to reach those difficult areas;
it slides under tables effortlessly and generally speeds up the time it takes
me to get the room cleaned. Always a
bonus in my eyes as a parent I am short on time.

The Anti-Allergy Dust Mite Cleaner (RRP £230) is a
revolutionary product; often we just live with dust mites in our beds and soft
furnishings, as they are not visible to the naked eye so they tend to go
unnoticed in our cleaning routines. But
the droppings of dust mites are a real problem for the 90% of asthmatics that
are sensitive to them. Having been on
high dose steroids in my time, I tend to know how hard it really is when you
can’t breathe; it’s frightening and painful as your airways are so raw.
The UV light helps detect the dust mites and the
combination of the powerful 450-W motor
and 8.2-cm suction vent help reduce allergens.
Vacuums have come on a long way since I was a child; I
just wish these had been around when I was first diagnosed with Asthma at five
years old. I am so glad I have these
two products now to better manage my Asthma.
