The Woodhouse Family: "Giving a brave girl a fighting chance."
IQAir's Clean Air Team was summoned by “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to help build a safe environment for Kayla Woodhouse, whose life was threatened by common allergens in the air. Kayla has a rare genetic disorder that keeps her body from regulating its temperature or feeling pain. Even the most ordinary household allergens cause her to scratch herself uncontrollably. She had severe reactions to dust mites, pet dander, mold and other airborne particles. IQAir and “Extreme Makeover” installed the Perfect 16 whole-house air purification system. “The Perfect 16 is giving this brave girl a fighting chance to live and love life," said IQAir President Frank Hammes, a member of the Clean Air Team.
IQAir system(s) selected by The Woodhouse Family: Perfect 16
Kayla Woodhouse was born in Louisiana and appeared to be a healthy, happy, normal girl. But very soon after she was born, Kayla's parents noticed that on hot days she quickly turned red and even collapsed and passed out cold. Kayla's pediatrician learned that Kayla has a rare genetic disorder that keeps her body from being able to regulate its temperature or feel pain. Temperatures higher than 75 degree could be fatal for her. Worse yet, she also has severe allergies to even the most ordinary household allergens and these allergens would cause her to scratch herself uncontrollably.
To save her life, Kayla's parents moved the entire family to Colorado Springs so that Kayla could live in a cooler environment and be closer to her doctors. Her father, Jeremy, took a job as an Associate Pastor at a local church, and the familydid everything they could to make the home as safe and healthy as possible for Kayla, but it wasn't enough. The allergens in her home were making her sick and she was steadily getting worse.
"Call in the Clean Air Team!"
With those words, IQAir's Clean Air Team was summoned to Colorado Springs to help the Extreme Makeover Design Team build an ultra-healthy home for Kayla and her family.
"We recognized with Kayla that we had to take a bold air cleaning approach to her environmental needs," says Frank Hammes, President of IQAir and head of the Clean Air Team. "She had severe reactions to dust mites, pet dander, mold and other airborne particles. We knew we had to make her entire home an ultra-clean, allergen-free zone."
And that's exactly what IQAir achieved with the installation of the Perfect 16 whole-house air purification system. As the world's most effective product of its kind, the Perfect 16 is able to remove virtually all airborne allergens from the air in the home every 12 minutes and bring healthy, clean air to every corner of Kayla's home.
"With a healthy home, there now is one thing less for Kayla and her family to worry about. The Perfect 16 is giving this brave girl a fighting chance to live and love life," says Hammes.
