Most Common Airborne Allergens

Allergies are a common occurrence in the lives of many people during the Spring and Summer months. You may suffer from airborne allergic reactions if you experience:

  • Coughing
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Dark under-eye circles
  • Watery eyes

If you experience any of these symptoms, it can be beneficial to know what allergen is triggering your reaction. Once you know which allergen or allergens trigger you, you can find treatment options to suit your needs.

  1. Mold

Mold is most commonly found in moist, cool, dark places. Mold can easily travel through the air and cause reactions. If you notice mold in your home try cleaning non-porous surfaces with bleach and porous surfaces with vinegar.

  • Dust/Dust Mites

Household dust can contain high levels of dust mite allergens. Consider cleaning fans, dusty surfaces, and air filters in your hvac system to reduce dust levels.

  • Pets

Animals and their dander are very common allergens. You may not notice an allergic reaction when you first adopt a pet as allergies can take a few years to develop. Your doctor can prescribe allergy medication to help relieve any symptoms.

  • Pollen

In early Spring and Summer, pollen counts are higher than ever. The air is saturated with small pollen particles that cause allergic reactions in many people.

                Allergy sufferers may benefit from air purifies, indoor air quality systems, or an AC check-up and filter cleaning. Give Haas Heating and Cooling a call today at (330) 844-9303 to schedule an appointment.
