Protect your children against pet allergies 

Protect your children against pet allergies 

Allergies in children are on the rise. But how can you improve the air quality in your home to make sure your pets don’t worsen your children’s condition?

Love them as much as we do, our pets are not only prone to shedding their hair, but also bringing in dirt and debris from outside.  Increasingly, young children are suffering from allergies, respiratory conditions like asthma or dry skin complaints and our beloved cats and dogs can exacerbate these problems.  New born babies and toddlers are particularly susceptible as have no defence while they are still developing and so it is especially important to help improve the air quality and cleanliness in your home.

So what can you do if you have a pet?  Regular grooming outside will help, as well as ensuring your pets have to walk over a washable microfibre mat when they enter the house to help absorb dirt and water from their paws.  And of course, keeping on top of the housework is essential.  Regular cleaning using microfibre cloths that attract dust like a magnet will help keep surfaces clear, while investing in a quality vacuum cleaner that is specifically designed for pet families will make all the difference.  

The Miele Complete C3 Cat & Dog Pro cylinder vacuum cleaner is one such model and will make light work of clearing up after your pet.  Like all Miele vacuum cleaners, it features a PowerLine motor which creates incredible suction to deliver a deep clean every time across all surfaces, without pulling any carpet threads.  But what really sets it apart is its innovative Miele TurboBrush specially designed to ensure that every hair, piece of fluff, dust or dirt particle lying in its path is picked up.  In addition, its charcoal Active AirClean filter helps to neutralise any unpleasant odours and ensures that more than 99.98% of fine dust is filtered so you can breathe with ease. 

On board cleaning tools include a crevice nozzle for cleaning in corners, a dusting brush with natural bristles for skirting boards, and an upholstery nozzle for mattresses, cushions, covers and curtains.  Other features include a 12-metre operating radius, easy to use foot controls for adjusting suction across different surfaces such as rugs or fitted carpet and one touch cable rewind.  It also comes with a standard, general purpose floor head.

Heavy duty work requires heavy duty tools and German premium domestic appliance manufacturer, Miele is a market leader in cleaning performance.  Before going into production, each model in its range is tested to the equivalent of 20 years use.  For example, suction hoses are twisted, flexed and stretched with a 5kg weight 120,000 times. Floorheads are tested to cover a distance of 2,000km over various floor types – the equivalent of going from Berlin to Paris and back.  And cables are unwound and rewound again more than 10,000 times.   

Compact in design and easily stowed, the Miele Complete C3 Cat & Dog Pro not only delivers the ultimate deep clean but also peace of mind – knowing that you are doing all you can to give your family the cleanest environment and best quality air in their home.
