Spring is finally just around the corner, and with the sun making a re-appearance and days warming up, most people are letting out a happy sigh of relief as winter comes to a close – unless they suffer from hay fever!

Hay fever is caused by an allergic reaction to pollen and it comes with a range of unpleasant symptoms, including runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, headache, congestion, itchiness and congestion.  Hay fever affects up to 1 in 5 Australian’s at some time in their life and affects both adults and children, so you probably know someone who’s experienced it or dealt with it yourself at one time or another. Not only will allergies leave you feeling unwell, but they can be incredibly disruptive to daily life.

Hay fever is usually at its worst in the spring, which is why so many seasonal allergy sufferers dread this time of year, and also why it’s the best time to start thinking about how you can combat hay fever this year.

The great news is that you don’t have to be at the mercy of seasonal allergies in your own home, there are ways to alleviate the symptoms and control your environment – Pollergen™ can help!

What is Pollergen™?

Pollergen™ is a unique fabric treatment for blinds designed by Louvolite to help relieve hay fever. Ant-allergy fabrics act as a barrier and can help to reduce the amount of pollen circulating throughout your home. With Pollergen™ treated blinds in your home it is possible to significantly reduce the amount of active pollen you come into contact with.

How does Pollergen™ work?

So how does Louvolite’s clever invention work?

Well, pollen is a very tacky substance that tends to stick to almost any surface it comes into contact with. By including a tackifier in the treatment formula, Pollergen™ blinds can increase the capture rate of pollen in your home.

Once captured, the clever Pollergen™ formulation will denature up to 50% of grass pollen – this process renders it completely harmless to hay fever sufferers as it kills the active allergy-causing element in the pollen.

Benefits of Pollergen™

Pollergen™ protection will hold up through the seasons.  The active formulation continually migrates to the surface of the fabric so you can wipe your fabrics down without worry, there is no special cleaning or maintenance required.

Pollergen™ is incredibly versatile because it is a treatment, so you don’t have to worry about your fabric options being limited when choosing to combat allergies in your home.
