With the right humidifier you create healthy and germ-free air!
As temperatures fall, the risk of flu increases. The interiors are heated and the air becomes drier. As a result, harmful particles and flu viruses are able to float longer. With the help of air humidifiers you not only create an optimal air humidity but you also reduce the amount of germs in the air and thus relieve your mucous membranes. High-quality humidifier systems also eliminate germs in the device itself. 

Harmful particles

During the winter months the risk of flu is very high. During the winter months we work and live in heated, mostly closed rooms where germs spread more easily. A study by the German Institute for Occupational Safety and Health has shown that germs can travel a distance of up to 40 metres with a single sneeze. In addition, harmful particles and germs hover longer in dry air than in moist air. This increases the risk of flu.

Natural reduction of the risk of influenza

It is important that we take measures during the winter to protect ourselves optimally against germs and flu viruses. We can achieve this not only by regular hand washing and a high vitamin supply, but also by an optimal air humidity. Professionals recommend a relative humidity of 40 to 60 percent. You mean that with this humidity the risk of flu is reduced in a natural way. The University of Illinois in Chicago shows with its study "High Humidity Leads to Loss of Infectious Influenza Virus from Simulated Coughs" that the number of particles in the air is greatly minimized. Due to the ideal humidity in the room, the harmful particles are charged with liquid and sink to the floor. Since they are no longer at face level, the risk of flu and infection has been greatly reduced.
