Allergy Relief Treatments
Effective Treatment for Indoor Allergens
Exposure to dust mite and pet allergen are widely accepted to be one of the most important causes of allergic disease for many people. And continued exposure aggravates allergic illnesses, which can lead to the development of others. Allergies are also risk factors for the development of more serious, chronic and even life threatening illnesses like asthma and sinusitis. Grime Fighters offers a revolutionary new anti-allergen treatment program called the ResponsibleCare System can safely and easily reduce allergens in you home or office by 90% or more.You already know that successfully managing allergic illness consists of doing everything you can from taking your medication to good Environmental Control. The most important objective of Environmental Control is to minimize or avoid exposure to allergens from dust mites and pets, the most potent allergens found in indoor air. The ResponsibleCare System is a powerful new way to archive this objective.
The ResponsibleCare System includes specially formulated cleaning agents used prior to application of Allergy Relief Treatment on carpets, mattresses, upholstery, rugs and bedding. Allergy Relief Treatment is a hypoallergenic solution that contains a powerful active ingredient derived from naturally occurring extracts found in renewable fruit and vegetable seeds. Studies have proven the Allergy Relief Treatment formulation was effective in reducing the concentration of Der p 1 (dust mite allergen) in pooled house dust samples by 90%.
Understanding Allergies and Asthma
Allergic illnesses develop when the body is overexposed to certain allergens. In effect the body programs itself to consider these normally harmless substances as illness causing intruders to be defended against. The way the immune system guards the body is by producing what are known as IgE antibodies.
This continued allergen overexposure not only causes the allergic illness but can also result in the development of ones as well as much more serious, chronic and even life threatening allergic diseases.
Allergens are proteins that have unique shapes that identify them as allergens to the antibodies in the immune system. The allergen is like a lock and the antibody is like a key that fits only that lock. The body’s IgE antibodies are constantly on the lookout for the presence of the allergen they were created in response to, sort of like keys floating around the immune system looking for the locks they were created to fit.
When these antibody “keys” find a repetitive pattern of allergen “locks”, the body defends against these perceived intruders by the antibodies binding with the allergen, much like inserting a key into a lock. This sets off a chemical reaction designed to protect the body from infection.. This rush of chemicals to the body is what is experienced as an allergic reaction or asthma attack.
How Allergy Relief Treatment Works
Allergy Relief Treatment is a very safe, simple and highly effective way of changing the shape of the allergen proteins, making then unrecognizable to the body! Nothing about the allergen is changed except its shape. So, when this shape is changed, there is no repetitive pattern that identifies the material as an allergen and therefore, there is no allergic reaction!
Another way of looking at it is that Allergy Relief Treatment disassembles or takes apart the allergen locks. In a very real way, the lock is still there only now its in the form of its component parts rather than an assembled lock. Because allergens no longer appear as a “lock” to the body, the antibody “key” does not bind with them and there is no allergic reaction!
This changing of the shape of the allergen protein is known as denaturing and has been proven by Professor T.A.E Platts-Mills, Head of the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the University of Virginia. “(Allergy Relief Treatment) was shown to have denaturing effects on Fel d 1 (Cat), Can f 1 (Dog), Der p 1 (Dust Mites) in dust samples containing these allergens”.

Cleaning Alone is Not Enough
While cleaning is important, no matter how spotless your home, dust mites can’t be eliminated or cleaned away. In the case of pet allergies, most people can’t bear to part with a beloved family pet even though this is the number one recommendation of doctors.
That’s why the key to the success of the ResponsibleCare System is the use of specialized cleaning agents to remove as much allergen and allergen food source as possible followed by application of the Allergy Relief Treatment that inactivates the allergens, preventing them from causing an allergic reaction.
The ResponsibleCare Anti-Allergen Cleaning and Treatment Service Process
The place of exposure to the greatest amount of allergen for the longest amount of time is the bedroom. Up to 60% of the dust mites found in the home are actually living in your bed and you spend about one-third of your life in the bedroom! And, bedrooms are the easiest area to control as an allergen free zone. Therefore, the bedroom is the highest priority treatment area.
Grime Fighters cleaning technicians will first vacuum the mattress, carpeting and any draperies or upholstered furniture using an exterior vented vacuum or HEPA-filtered vacuum cleaner.
The mattress is then cleaned thoroughly cleaned on all surfaces and deodorized (if required) using the ResponsibleCare cleaning agents and a special low moisture cleaning tool designed to leave the mattress as dry as possible. Following cleaning, Allergy Relief Treatment is applied to all mattress surfaces using a fine mist application. The mattress is then placed in a drying position and if needed a special air mover can be used to speed up the drying process,which depending upon temperature and humidity, normally takes about an hour.
The same safe cleaning agents are used to clean the bedroom carpeting and if desired, any upholstered furniture or rugs. This is followed by an application of Allergy Relief Treatment, once again a speed drying system is set up to dry the cleaned items as quickly as possible and bring the humidity down to normal levels promptly. Baseboards and windowsills are cleaned as well.
While the cleaning and treatment service is being performed it is highly recommended that the bedding and pillows be washed in hot water and that two cups of Allergy Relief Treatment be added to the rinse cycle. This is so effective as a laundry treatment that it need only be used every fourth washing.
While servicing the bedroom is the highest priority, significant benefits may also result from cleaning and treating other areas where allergy sufferers spend a lot of time. These areas include the upholstered furniture and carpeting in rooms where time is spent watching television, reading, playing games and so on. Also, all carpeted areas and upholstery that pets have access to should be cleaned and treated.
A test area for the presence of dust mites in quantities requiring treatment is also available from Grime Fighters. This test will only detect dust mites and will not provide information on pet allergen.
