Kärcher allergy guide for a healthy home!

What is an allergy?
Our bodies have a highly sensitive mechanism for shielding us from invaders – the immune system. Allergies are the result when the immune system tries to fight off substances – many of them occurring in nature – which are in fact harmless. The body sees them as dangerous alien matter and reacts with fits of sneezing, a runny nose, sore, itching eyes, coughs, fevers and other allergy symptoms.

Are we safe indoors?

Allergies to substances in the home are increasing faster than any other type of allergy.
Contributing factors include poor air quality because windows fit too tightly, impermeable building materials, air conditioning, in adequate ventilation and incorrect vacuum cleaning.

Yet we spend around 90 per cent of our time indoors.

Invisible lodgers in household dust.

Natural fibres, hairs and flakes of skin in household dust.

Some ingredients of household dust can trigger allergic reactions, among them plant pollen, fungus spores and animal hairs. As soon as dust is dislodged, for example during vacuum cleaning, these usually invisible particles become a problem for the allergy-prone.


One of the main triggers of allergic reactions are substances secreted by household dust mites.
There are an estimate of  4.5 million people in South Africa that are allergic to household dust mites. The problem should not be underestimated because it can develop into chronic asthma. It not only affects adults, but children and teenagers too.

Where dust mites feel at home.

During its life-span a single mite produces around 200 times its weight in secretions.

The preferred habitat of these tiny, spider-like creatures is in upholstery, carpets and mattresses. There they find ideal living conditions – warmth, moisture and the flakes of human skin that supply them with food. The one and a half grams of skin shed each day by the average person is enough to feed more than a million mites.


Practical tips for allergy prevention
1. Keep rooms cool and well ventilated.
2. Use specially coated mattresses or protective covers.
3. Use pillows and duvets made from washable synthetic material.
4. Change bedclothes every 1 to 2 weeks and wash them at 60 °C minimum.
5. Don’t use bedrooms as playrooms or living-rooms during the daytime.
6. Keep bedrooms well ventilated and dry (air humidity < 50%).
7. Mites in soft toys can be destroyed by keeping the toys at –18°C overnight in the freezer once every 4 to 6 weeks.
8. Use a damp cloth for dusting – water binds dust.

Vacuuming without any ifs and buts:

Unless they are frequently changed, dust bags are an ideal breeding ground for mites, bacteria and fungi. What is more, they can impair suction and are easily damaged, torn or burst. Or if
you’re not careful, they can slip out of place filling the vacuum cleaner with dust. And it is hard to tell when a dust bag is full.
From now on, you can forget about all that.

Kärcher’s AquaStream water filter technology makes sure that dust is sent packing. Aqua Stream water filtering technology reliably retains dust in the water, which can be disposed of in the drain
immediately after vacuuming. The best thing about this is that that water filter cannot be clogged, which keeps the vacuuming power constant!

From now on fluff, textile fibres, sand and all kinds of floor dirt, right down to microscopic allergy triggering dust particles, are not just vacuumed up. They are rendered harmless inside the cleaner
before they have a chance to multiply and find their way back into the indoor air.

it’s as simple as that. The intermediate filter can be rinsed, making it particularly long-lasting. It filters minute floating particles out of the condensed moist air.

Car Wash Cleaning Equipment

Quality Car Wash Cleaning Equipment Makes Light Work

At one time, if asked to make a list of their car wash cleaning equipment, most would have responded with items like buckets, sponges, squeegees, chamois leathers, buckets and hoses. Today, a growing number of vehicle owners are likely to produce a list of just two items; a chamois or soft cloth and a high pressure washer.

car wash cleaning equipmentA shampoo with added wax may well take a lot of the time and effort out of restoring your vehicle’s shine but even this will be a wasted effort if, before it is applied, the surface of your car is not thoroughly clean and free of grit and dirt that, otherwise, may lead to severe scratching of your paintwork.

The garden hose may be of some help if your mains water pressure happens to be reasonable but, where the build-up of dirt is heavy and in those out of the way places like the wheel arches, it is unlikely to be effective and will almost certainly need a bit of sponging to help matters along and even this is quite likely to cause scratches.

For many, of course, the task of sprucing up the family motor is delegated to the local carwash. Here to, there has been a shift away from the more labour-intensive cleaning practices of the past with all of the preliminary cleaning, shampooing, rinsing and sometimes drying being provided by means of these pressure washers. The outlet may use individual units or centralised compressors that provide the pressure needed to operate several hoses and that are able to introduce a wax shampoo into the cold water jet when required.

More sophisticated systems may employ a mobile gantry system that makes several passes over the vehicle to perform each stage of the cleaning process in sequence.

When the time comes for attention to the interior, steam extraction cleaners leave upholstery hygienically clean, and dry and a quick wipe over of the dashboard is all that remains.

Kärcher offers a full range of quality car wash cleaning equipment for home, commercial and industrial use.
