We all know that the common cold, a viral infectious disease of the respiratory tract, is one of the human body’s most familiar and regular ailments. Different people have very similar symptoms like coughing, sore throat, runny nose or fever, but many suffer for variable periods of time, from as short as 3 days to as long as 3 weeks or even more, depending on the body’s immune system reacts to the infection.
However, despite advancements in medical technology and improvements in medicine formulation, cure for the common cold remains elusive but definitely, the symptoms can be treated or even prevented.
But did you know that the cold you are having right now may not be because of a viral infection but an allergic reaction? Despite displaying similar symptoms to a virus-based cold like itchy nose, runny nose or cough, the cold you are having right now may be because of allergic reaction to microorganisms such as “dust mites.” These “critters” leave behind waste matter on our bed, pillows, blankets and other beddings, curtains, sofas and other foam-based material, which may be the culprit to our cold.
How do these dust mites bring us the dreaded cold?
Well, it is also part of our own doing. Our own skin, and most especially food bits that drop on our beds or sofas whenever we feel having breakfast in bed or eating while on a DVD marathon, are consumed by dust mites and results to their waste droppings. Not meaning to scare you, but did you know that a 10-year-old mattress contains millions and millions of dust mites?
So how do you contain dust mites? Vacuuming may be a solution but the problem is it only removes surface dust, not dust mites because they have several powerful legs that cling to the fabric. And even if the vacuum removes the dust mites, they will still return and continue to wreak havoc on the household, especially children who have weaker immune systems.
Now, the most effective way to get rid of dust mites is to kill them using “C” ultra-violet light—deadly against dust mites yet less harmful to humans.
Luckily, there is now a UVC-based device that will consistently and effectively kill dust mites—the Raycop UVC Anti-Allergy Cleaner.
The Raycop UVC Anti-Allergy Cleaner can effectively eliminate 99% of bacteria and almost 94% of dust mites, and can also help deactivate the dangerous H1N1 Influenza A virus. This was based on studies conducted by the Tokyo Allergy Research Center and the Japan Food Research Laboratories.
Raycop’s process to eliminate dust mites and even other allergens is via its patented 3-step allergy care system: vibrating, sterilizing and double-filtering. It has a Vibrating Pad that that vibrates a whopping 3,600 times per minute, and shakes particles and dust mites away from mattresses, pillows and other fabrics and linens to make sure that even the most stubborn dust mites are removed.
The UVC Sterilization lamp, meanwhile, kills bacteria to leave surfaces germ-free. Using lamp technology from Philips and Sankyo, it uses a lamp with a highly efficient and effective 253.7 nanometer wavelength, the same germicidal ultraviolet wavelength used in hospitals, clinics and laboratories.
Finally, Raycop uses a cartridge filter that captures the larger particles and traps them so they cannot go back to the room and helps extend the life of the Micro Allergy Filter, which is the one that traps the smaller particles to make sure they do not escape as well.
So better prepare against colds. Try the Raycop UVC Anti-Allergy Cleaner and help protect your household against dust mites, colds and other respiratory problems.
