Germ Guardian Review & Giveaway w/ Achoo! Allergy

February 20, 2012 By: Shannyn

When I started to suffer from allergies, I took a pill and coped.  When I began to see evidence of my dog’s allergies -after multiple trips to the vet & several rounds of antibiotics for ear infections, coughing and sneezing I ruled out that the problem was bacterial.  I turned to AchooAllergy.com for help with the allergies that was not only a nuisance but an expensive problem.    They not only provided me with an amazing air purifier to ease my suffering but will be helping a lucky winner out as well!  

Here’s the deal, I had never suffered from serious allergies before I moved to Chicago.  A few months ago though, after months of buying allergy medication, waking up with headaches and several vet trips, both my pug and I were pretty miserable.  As a frugal college student I can see why some folks would be reticent to invest in air quality equipment and a good air purifier- but how much did I spend on pain relievers, allergy medicine, trips to the vet and wasted productivity?

household allergens

 

Had I known then what I know know (thanks to handy videos and helpful info from their website) I would have saved myself literal headaches and the money I wasted on antibiotics that didn’t solve our sinus problems.  

Many of us are unaware at how prevalent mold can be in our living space (especially if you’re in an old building like I am)  or that the average home houses millions of dust mites that live in beds, couches and carpeting that wreak havoc year round.  

I’m all about saving money, but when it comes to your health, a small investment of an air purifier, humidifier or mattress cover will save you money and suffering in the long run.

I have an old mattress and live in an affordable (read: cheap) old apartment that is stuffy in the midwest winters and yikes-  black mold was discovered in the building.  When a roomie of mine cooks something fragrant the apartment will smell of it far after the dinner’s over.  It’s frugal but sometimes it’s not fun!

The kind folks at AchooAllergy.com sent me a Germ Guardian Air Purifier which has a snazzy UV light that not only looks cool but kills germs!  They also sent me a t-shirt and an adorable toy dust mite for Ralph & I to enjoy…but I digress…

I turned this baby on and ran it for a few days and noticed that Ralph’s wheezing began to improve and I began suffering far fewer sinus headaches.  An unanticipated bonus?  While the air is healthier (yay!) my roomies can cook garlic salmon all they want and I don’t have to smell it the next morning (double yay!)

Why I <3 The Germ Guardian & Achoo Allergy:

  • The staff at Achoo Allergy were totally helpful and helped me find the right item for my needs.
  • The Germ Guardian is a quick, affordable fix for allergy sufferers.
  • Installation & mobility is effortless.
  • Quiet, slim & unobtrusive (easy on the eyes too!).
  • The pug has pretty much stopped wheezing.
  • Kills germs & makes the stuff winter apartment smell nice.

Well don’t worry, I’m not going to be the only one having the fun!  If you’re an allergy sufferer you need to check this out.

Achoo Allergy is offering one lucky reader a $150 credit for  your own Germ Guardian or something snazzy!

  50. I would like to try the air purifier. Living in the snow belt means that we are forced to be inside a lot during the winter months, without a source for fresh air. That means that lots of dust collects in the air and is blown through the heating ducts in our house. I try to keep them clean, and dust mop as much as possible, but we are still constantly sneezing. I’d also like to try the steamer, just to get ALL the germies out of my curtains and furniture.
