SOME TIPS TO HELP FAMILIES BREATHE EASIER THIS SPRING
Spring sprucing isn’t just about cleaning the things you see. Just as important are the things you don’t see. The air can be filled with allergens that can be dangerous to you and your family. My husband and youngest son really suffer this time of the year because of allergies. But now, there’s a brand-new Air Purifier from Philips, one of the global leaders in air purifiers, that helps families improve the air quality in their home can capture 99.97% of allergens, like pollen and dust mites that pass through its six filters. The Series 5000i uses two air quality sensors to enable smart modes like the Virus Mode or Allergen Mode.  And how’s this for easy? An Air Matters app lets me control air remotely and alerts me with real-time color changes when my allergen levels change. I sleep better, because cleaner air helps them sleep better at night!
