Allergies Are in the Air

With the influx of seasonal allergens that crop up every fall, many people are starting to spend more time indoors. But while ragweed gets all the press, indoor irritants are often just as harmful. Fall means increased development of mold and mites in your home, and for people suffering allergies, that means itchiness, irritation, congestion, and difficulty sleeping. Because homes are so well sealed, poor quality air often stagnates in your home, escalating the problem.

First Steps in Allergy Prevention

Allergies aren’t treatable through prescription medication alone. While seeing your local pharmacist may decrease your symptoms, a few home preventative measures can improve your allergies long term. Doctors suggest:

  • Replacing carpeting with smooth flooring
  • Keeping pets outside or away from the bedroom
  • Avoiding clutter that will collect dust
  • Finding a pillow and mattress cover that protects from mites, dander, etc
  • Cleaning your home frequently and wearing a cleaning mask when you do
  • Researching the allergy irritants for your hometown

Air Purification

No matter how well you clean, indoor air pollution can’t be overcome by prevention alone. Allergists recommend purchasing an air purifier to guarantee clean, allergen free air in your home. Clean air technology releases safe, natural ions into the air to decontaminate your living space of odor, pollution, and allergens. Air purifiers are available in a range of sizes, giving you the opportunity to cleanse your home, office, dorm, or car of seasonal allergy irritants.
