Allergies

Allergy

Allergies affect 20 percent of the U.S. population and are the sixth leading cause of chronic disease. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, chances are good you curse every little pollen particle and mold spore that crosses your path.

During allergy season, severe allergy sufferers may be tempted to stay inside to avoid contact with allergy triggers. However, whatever is floating around outside eventually makes its way inside, where it can cause sneezing, stuffy nose, watery eyes, itching and other symptoms.

One of the biggest allergy triggers is pollen, especially in spring and summer. Trees are usually done pollinating by late spring, leaving mostly grasses and weeds to trigger summer allergies. Ragweed is another common allergy trigger, and usually arrives in August. Ragweed can travel for hundreds of miles in the wind, so even if it doesn’t grow where you are, it can make you feel bad if you’re allergic to it.

Allergen particles causing the most allergic symptoms range from 1-80 microns in size, and pollen particles causing the most allergic symptoms range from 15-40 microns in size. With a proper air purification system, you can remove many of these trigger particles from the air.

In addition to spending your time in homes and buildings with effective air filtration, there are other steps people can take to help avoid seasonal allergies, according to the health experts at WebMD.

Outdoors:

  • Avoid going outdoors when the pollen count is very high.
  • Hot, dry and windy days are peak allergy days. Try to plan trips for when it’s cooler and less windy. After a rain is a good time to go outside.
  • Pollen counts are highest in the morning, so plan outdoor activities for later in the day.
  • When at home, get an allergy-free family member or friend to mow the lawn. If you must mow the lawn, use a mask and protective glasses.
  • Toss your clothes in the washer and take a shower after you come in from outdoor activities, especially when you’ve been working in the yard.

Indoors:

  • Keep windows closed and run the air conditioning.
  • Use a vacuum with double-bagging or a HEPA filter. If cleaning stirs up allergies, try wearing an allergy mask.
  • Don’t hang sheets and clothes on the line to dry in the fresh air; you’ll bring all those outdoor allergens inside with you.
  • Cut back on carpeting and drapes. Consider tile and hardwood, and shutters and blinds instead.
  • Take off shoes right outside the door before coming inside, or wipe them well on an outdoor mat.
