This is another update on the Hamilton Beach 04383 True Air Allergen-Reducing Air Cleaner. I have now been running it for a week and have vacuumed twice. Normally, I track the need to vacuum by the severity of my asthma attacks and the amount of hair and cat litter on the floor. This brings me to the point of my update.
I have had only two asthma attacks this week. I did not feel the heavy, obstructed feeling in my airways that I normally feel. Instead, I felt a little tightness and shortness of breath. It was uncomfortable, and I was tired; but I didn't feel that I couldn't function. In the first case, it took 18 hours before I realized what was going on. The second time, I had a better idea what was going on, and instead of treating first, I ran the vacuum cleaner and put some de-allergy treatment on the dog. I will treat momentarily; but doing these things resulted in some relief. There was much less hair on the floor than there has been in the past and much, much less litter around the cat boxes.
