Most of us have experienced our fair share of smokey weather over the last few weeks. During these times, it's important to think about the health effects of breathing this smokey air and what we can do to protect ourselves from it!

We've had some terrible weather events recently all around the country. Bushfires have been rampant all across QLD (and especially the Sunshine Coast right now), to Northern NSW to Darwin and Perth. Of course, we hope that everyone stays safe during these dangerous times, but it's also important to consider the health effects of breathing in this polluted air.

We're seeing this smoke in many surrounding areas and even areas large distances away due to some crazy winds. Even low levels of breathing this smoke can have terrible effects on those of us with allergies, asthma and assorted breathing issues. "Smoke particles can cause many health problems such as itchy or burning eyes, throat irritation, a runny nose and illnesses such as bronchitis. It can also aggravate existing lung conditions such as emphysema." - Claudia Jambor, ABC News

This is so serious in fact that there have been calls for 'air quality monitoring' by health experts. Check out a great article on this topic from ABC News right here: Calls for air quality monitoring as northern NSW braces for severe bushfire season

In preparing for these poor-air quality smokey conditions, many of us close our windows and doors, but unfortunately this polluted air often still makes its way into the home. This is where air-purifiers can be just so important. We encourage all of our Winix air-purifier owners out there to have them running at all times during these hazardous conditions. Especially throughout the night for clean and healthy air while we sleep. As pictured, in addition to protecting ourselves and our families, it's a great relief to know that we're also protecting the health of our much-loved pets!

As always, please let us know if you have any questions and stay safe out there!

Allergy Season IS COMING!

Spooky-Allergy-Season

Some of us (like Allan here at our most recent Marsden Park Costco event) are spooked by Halloween ghouls and skeletons, others are scared by the dreaded upcoming ALLERGY SEASON!

Yes, that time of year is upon us again and affecting many of us already! A word of advice for all of our Winix air purifier owners out there to take ‘preventative' measures, rather than ‘reactive' ones in removing those allergens from your air. For example, if you know it’ll be a windy day, keep those windows and doors closed. We also know from personal experience how much of a difference-maker it can be to already have that air purifier running at all times this time of the year. Key areas can be the lounge-room, home office/study or in the bedroom while we sleep. Really, anywhere that YOU are! Lets do our best to keep that ‘scary' allergy-season at bay this year!

For those of you who may not already have an air purifier (or need another one), you can find all the details here; Winix air purifiers. Now is a great time to buy with our Awesome August Cashback Special. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions at all. As the allergy-season continues, we’ll do our best to share some more handy tips and guides right here!

Tired of Forever-Drying Apartment Washing?

Ausclimate-Say-Goodbye-to-Ads-[ForeverDryingWashing2]

It's that time of year where we often find the washing taking FOREVER to dry & for apartment-dwellers, this can be especially frustrating. I took this photo the other day & was shocked by the amount of washing drying on those balconies. I could only imagine how long that's going to take to dry with the cold, wet weather Melbourne's been getting lately!

You'd be amazed at how much of a game-changer our Ausclimate Cool-Seasons desiccant dehumidifiers can be this time of year, with their dedicated 'Laundry-Mode' function!

We've found an excellent article from the ABC about the dangers of mould & dust mites in our mattresses and pillows and how often you should be replacing them to avoid it! It gives some really great insight on the topic from some excellent industry professionals.

How often should you change your mattress and pillows to avoid mould and dust mites?

As we know, a top-quality Dehumidifier can be just a fantastic solution to really dry out that mattress and pillows. This helps stop those mould & dust mite nasties in their tracks and even extends the life of your mattress and pillows. We put together a handy Bedroom Mattress Dehumidifier Drying Guide for this a little while back that gives some excellent tips! You can check it out here:

Crazy Wagga Wagga Dust Storms

Crazy-Wagga-Dust-Storms

Yesterday we experienced a big dust storm in Wagga Wagga that turned the sky orange! January proved the dustiest on record and according to weather experts, this 'dusty season' is far from over.

Thank-Goodness

We find the Winix Zero 4 Stage Air Purifier so energy efficient that we keep it running all day. Well, thank goodness we did in this crazy dust storm, as thankfully we didn't end up with a spec of dust in the room!

These dust storms can be just terrible for people with dust allergies and respiratory issues, so it's great to know just how effectively the Winix air purifier kept that dust at bay. A great tip to all of our air purifier owners out there to keep your units running during this dusty season!

A Dehumidifier for Soap Making?

Soap-Making-Dehumidification

We're always very excited to hear of new and interesting uses for our dehumidifiers and today we got a great one!

Linda Lasker of Lather With Linda is using our highly-rated NWT Medium 20L Dehumidifier during the curing process of her wonderful handmade natural Castile soaps. Linda uses our dehumidifier to keep the room humidity levels low while her soaps are curing. Linda tells us that this can reduce the overall curing time by approximately two weeks in our humid Queensland climate. How interesting!

Thank you for letting us know about this Linda, great stuff! If anyone else out there has an interesting use for our dehumidifiers or air purifiers, please tell us all about it.

If you're in the greater Brisbane area, make sure to take a look at Linda's "Lather With Linda" Facebook page. She does a great job. Lovely to see someone following their passion. We are happy to hear that Linda's soaps are mild and gentle, (with no chemicals or artificial agents) great for those with skin sensitivities and also great for pets!

Made with extra virgin olive oil and drizzle of extra virgin coconut oil to give lather and longevity and a dash of raw honey (harvested locally). Unscented, Lavender pure essential oil bars and Lemon pure essential oil bars. Extremely good value and eco-friendly, biodegradable and great for those who enjoy camping and the outdoors. Linda is based in the Jindalee, QLD area and her products are available to pick up by appointment.

Thanks again Linda and a very happy new year to all of our Ausclimate friends out there!

indoor water-damage dehumidifier drying guide

StayDrySydney

Sydney has copped a serious amount of rain today with flooding in many areas. It can be heartbreaking for anyone to wake up to some form of flooding, even smaller amounts of water damage in your home can really get you down. If you've experienced non-major water damage to floors, carpet or even in your car then we're happy to offer some handy tips to dry it right out.

IndoorWaterDamage DehumidifierDryingGuide

Indoor Water-Damage Dehumidifier Drying Guide

A quality dehumidifier is an excellent aid in actively removing moisture from a room (up to 50 litres per day). Dehumidifiers are especially great at drying deep, embedded moisture. For example, in addition to being excellent at drying carpets, if you have water-logged wooden floors or skirting boards, a dehumidifier can pull that moisture right out of the wood.

Here are some handy tips to dry those damp or water-logged areas most effectively with your dehumidifier.

Timing: Time can be of the essence in these situations, as mould can start to grow within 48 to 72 hours in moist or water-logged materials. So try to act as fast as possible, (while keeping safe).

Quick Tips:
1. Use towels to soak up any excess water. If the carpet is damp, then fold the towel over a few times and stand on it to draw the water up (preferably use a white towel as you don’t want the dye from a new coloured towel to 'bleed' into the carpet). Keep doing this until you can't get any more water out. You will be surprised even how dry the top of the carpet feels after doing this.

2. Place your dehumidifier into the room, close all windows and doors and turn the dehumidifier on to the lowest humidity setting (30% is preferable). If you have any fans, make sure to turn these on too. Air circulating in the room with the dehumidifier running will speed up the drying process.

3. Depending on the situation, it may take anywhere from 24 hours to a matter of days running your dehumidifier continuously to dry everything properly. (Remember to keep your doors and windows closed during this drying process.)

Important note: this guide is intended for minor water damage only, (not major flooding). If in doubt call a professional.
