Getting Ahead of Allergies With Indoor Air Purification
Outdoor allergens such as pollen and mold spores can be difficult to avoid, but many people don’t realize that indoor air quality can also be a major trigger for allergy symptoms. Let’s take a closer look at the health impacts of indoor allergens and how you can get ahead of your allergies with Jackson Services’ indoor air purification.
What types of allergens are found indoors?
The air inside our homes and other buildings can contain a wide range of allergens, including:
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
- Mold spores
- Chemical fumes
What happens when we inhale indoor allergens?
Inhaling indoor allergens can trigger an immune response that causes a variety of symptoms, including:
- Runny nose
- Itchy eyes
For some people, exposure to indoor allergens can also trigger asthma symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. In severe cases, inhaling indoor allergens can even lead to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening reaction that requires immediate medical attention.
How can you remove indoor air allergens and improve indoor air quality?
While you may not be able to completely eliminate indoor allergens, there are steps that can be taken to improve indoor air quality and reduce allergy symptoms. These steps include dusting and vacuuming regularly, using allergen-proof bedding, and avoiding the use of harsh chemicals and fragrances in your home. Managing allergen sources is essential– you can do this by bathing your pets regularly to cut down on dander, washing your bedding in hot water at least once a week, and keeping windows closed.
One of the most efficient ways to remove indoor allergens is with the help of indoor air purification.
