THE QUALITY OF THE AIR WE BREATH

Excessive environmental humidity increases your chance of getting respiratory diseases such as asthma, sinusitis, and respiratory tract infections as bronchitis.

Due to mites and humidity contained in the air, we could suffer from malaise, chills, tiredness, shortness of breath, cold feet, headache, musty odours, etc.

THE BONES, MUSCLES AND JOINTS

Cold and damp cause an increase in pain in some people suffering from rheumatic illnesses.

MOULD

Moulds are microscopic organisms similar to those in plants, which reproduce by producing spores in the air, which may cause asthma.

A HOME WITH DAMP PROBLEMS, A SICK FAMILY

Scientific studies have found sufficient evidences that relate continuous exposure to mould in indoor environments and respiratory tract diseases, coughing and asthma in healthy people. Mould is also linked to hypersensitivity pneumonitis in susceptible individuals to this immunological condition.

PROLIFERATION OF MITES, FUNGI AND BACTERIA

Mites, fungi and bacteria, a threat on the damp walls of your home

Humidity on the walls creates an ideal breeding ground for mites, fungus and mould that may cause respiratory diseases and allergies. A large number of people develop allergies to fungi such as, for example, aspergillosis, caused by infection or allergy to a particular type of fungus which affects, especially, to babies and elder people, being serious in some cases.

Mites are one of the most common trigger of asthma in babies.

Pregnant women and babies health

Newborns are especially vulnerable to suffer from breathing problems. The chance of suffering these diseases increases considerably in humid environments in which mites and fungi spores multiply in breathing air. By solving damp problems in homes, health problems are prevented in babies and pregnant women.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DAMP AND RESPIRATORY TRACT DISEASES

Aspergillosis is caused by fungi aspergillus, which reproduces in damp environments.

Various studies demonstrate the existent relationship between these diseases and a humid environment: in a sample of 134 adolescents who suffered from asthma, asthmatic bronchitis and chronic bronchitis, a 78% live in very humid rooms, a 17% in dry rooms and 5% in very dry rooms.

Similar observations were made with 103 patients who suffered chronic rhinitis: a 78% lived in very humid rooms, a 17% in dry rooms and 5% in very dry rooms.

To illustrate this connection, it is important to know that the number of mites per gram of dust in soil is 3 in dry environments and 83 in damp environments (hygrometry up to 75%).

CUSTOMERS WHO SOLVED THEIR HEALTH PROBLEMS RELATED TO DAMP

Our son suffered from asthma attacks and doctors told us it could be caused by humid environments. Indeed, we had damp problems at home. We called MURPROTEC and, in a very short time, damp disappeared and child’s asthma subsided.

Since we moved into our new house, my respiratory problems became worse. It didn’t take me long to realise that this was related to the excessive environmental humidity at home. Thanks to MURPROTEC we solved the problem.
