Today, May 3, 2011, is World Asthma Day. Organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA), World Asthma Day was created to raise awareness about asthma, asthma-related issues, and asthma care around the world. The theme for 2011 is “You Can Control Your Asthma”.
One of the best places to start is by cleaning the surfaces in your home with a HEPA vacuum cleaner, such as the Nilfisk GM80 Residential Vacuum. Great for allergy- and asthma-sufferers, the Nilfisk GM80 was designed specifically for use in homes and effectively removes 99.97% of particles from the environment that are 0.3 microns and larger thanks to HEPA filtration. This includes the elimination of asthma-inducing particles such as pollen, pet dander, dust, dust mites, and more. Plus, the Nilfisk GM80 vacuum cleaner features a bagged design, which means that once airborne contaminants are captured, they are permanently locked away from the air that you breathe. This Nilfisk vacuum also comes with 6.5-foot tapered plastic hose, a curved steel tube, a six-inch cone attachment, a 3-inch dust brush, a 5-inch upholstery nozzle, two straight steel wands, and a 3-in-1 floor nozzle to make sure that all of your surfaces are sparkling clean.
