Whether your allergies are triggered by pollen, dust, pet dander or some other allergen here are some tips to help you feel your best.
- Limit your exposure to the allergens, if possible. Recirculate the air inside your car, keep your windows closed on your home if you are
allergic to allergens outside, consider wearing a dust mask if working outside and rinse off in the shower if you've spent much time outside as the pollen, ragweed, etc can stay trapped in your clothes and hair.
- Use high quality pleated air filters for your HVAC (heating and cooling) system. These filters mainly capture the larger dust particles but they can extend the life and effectiveness of a HEPA air filter.
- Use a HEPA air purifier in your bedroom or other rooms where you spend most of your time. A HEPA air purifier will capture the smallest allergen particles so you won't be breathing them into your system. These microscopic particles make up most of the allergens in the air and are too small to be captured by standard air filters.
- Dust - dust is a common pollutant and allergen in our homes and offices with the primary sources being human skin cells, human and pet hair, paper and clothing fibers, minerals from outside, etc. The amount and type of dust in an environment can vary widely based upon the occupants and location - for example, living in a dry and dusty area. Particles are measured in microns where a micron is a micro meter or one millionth of a meter in diameter. Dust particles are less than 500 microns in size and typically considered one of the larger sized particles however there is fine dust that can be suspended in the air for extended periods of time. This micro sized dust particles tend to cause the respiratory issues since these particles can be breathed deep into your lungs.
- Pollen - pollen is a common allergen and is often referred to as hay fever. Pollen particles range in size from 1 micron to 100 microns. The smaller sized pollen particles are too small to be seen by the eye unless they are in mass concentrations. Similar to dust and other micro particles, the smaller sized particles can be suspended in the air for extended periods of time which will increase the chance of being breathed into your respiratory system.
