3 Ways to Stop Allergies
Allergy occurs when a person’s immune system reacts to substances in the environment. These substances are known as allergens and are found in dust mites, pets, pollen (grass, weed or tree), insects (bees, ticks…), molds, foods (peanuts, seafood, eggs, strawberries…) and some medicines.
When people are exposed to allergens they can develop an immune reaction that leads to allergic inflammation following by some of the listed symptoms:
- allergic rhinitis/conjunctivitis (runny nose, red swollen eyes, itch, sneezing, redness)
- skin (eczema, itch, redness, hives, dry skin )
- lungs (asthma, sneezing, swells, difficult breathing)
How to stop allergies?
During the allergy season, many doctors advise those with allergies to remain indoors, but it’s also important to control the quality of the air in your home.
We are offering three very effective solutions to stop allergies.
Change HEPA filters more frequently
It is best to change HEPA filters monthly especially if you suffer from allergies. If it is allergy season then you should change it more frequently. It is the best for you to call your HVAC technician to change it for you since they are not created equal and in order to get the best result you should definitely consult the professional.
When it comes to moisture control you should create a perferct balance for the sake of air quality. To much moisture could create perfect environment for mold growth and too little result in dry air which triggers allergy symptoms.
Get rid of the debris
Having a clean and unrestricted air flow is at most importance. Dust and debris could find the way into your HVAC system in many ways causing an increase level of allergens to be released into the air. Your HVAC technician should remove and clean all particulates of your HVAC system in order to create healthy breathing environment.
