Anti-Allergy / Asthma
Reducing allergens in the home.
The air is clean
Not only do our vacuums clean the floor but they also enhance the air!
Creating a healthy home can help you and your family breathe cleaner, fresher air and potentially reduce allergic reactions or allergy-related asthma attacks.
Dust seems to be more prevalent nowadays and a lot more people are starting to suffer from allergic reactions. According to the National Asthma Council Australia, around two out of five Australians have allergies, including most people with asthma. Allergies tend to run in families but family members may not have the same response.
Common sources of allergens in the home are the house dust mite, pets such as cats and dogs, pet dander, household chemicals, plant pollen, mould spores and tobacco smoke.
SEBO is a proud partner of the National Asthma Council Australia's Sensitive Choice Program.
The Sensitive Choice blue butterfly symbol appears on hundreds of products and services that may be a better choice for people with asthma or allergies.
Products and services that are part of Sensitive Choice submit research, testing and evidence which is assessed and approved by an independent and voluntary panel of experts to determine their potential benefit to people with asthma and allergies.
SEBO K, X and Felix machines also carry the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval making a SEBO the perfect choice for people who suffer from allergies.
HEPA - what is it?
Vacuums equipped with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration trap the dirt you can't see, rather than sending allergens back into the air.
European manufacturers use the term S-CLASS on their models.
Only high-quality filter material is used in combination with an excellent sealed vacuum cleaner casing achieve the requirements of SEBO S-CLASS filtration.
To meet the S-CLASS standard the filtration system has to remove a minimum of 99.97% of particles of 0.3 microns. The SEBO S-CLASS system will remove 100% of particles of 1 micron and above. Dust mite faeces are approx. 10 microns.
This method ensures that the fine dust particles stay in the closed vacuum cleaner system.
Every SEBO bag has a convenient hygiene lid to seal the bag after it is full - no dust will escape.
For increased asthma and allergy protection your SEBO vacuum bag door will not close unless the filter and bag are in place.
Electret filter material
Other than usual filtration systems, the SEBO S-Class filtration takes place by using the principle of electrostatics.
Several charged micro fibres block the opposite charged particles. This allows a relative open structure that favours the air stream and at the same time lowers the chance of plugging. The result is a much smoother and long-lasting filtration.
Why Bags Are Best
The SEBO filter bag system not only enhances filtration, but it also allows you to hygienically dispose of collected debris.
Dust becomes airborne very easily and will almost certainly contain hazardous material such as dust mite faeces, mould spores and pollen. With a SEBO sealable high filtration bag, dust is safely retained within the filter bag and can cleanly and easily be disposed of in the bin, inside or outside. The filter bag housing of a SEBO remains free of dust and does not require cleaning.
For allergy sufferers the SEBO filter bag protects you from the risk of exposure to dust and allergens.
