Spring is arriving and that means allergies are too! Dust mites, mold, and outdoor allergens are no stranger from entering your home this season. The EPA has created a few ways to improve indoor air quality to make sure you and your family aren’t battling the Spring time snuffles!
Allergy and asthma control begins at home. Many people with allergies stay indoors when pollen and mold is high. But dust mites, pet dander and even cockroaches can cause problems indoors.1
The Environmental Protection Agency recommends three ways you can improve indoor air quality:
- Control your contact with indoor airborne allergens
- Ventilate your indoor areas well
- Use air cleaners to clean indoor air
What Size Are Allergens?
Allergens are substances that cause allergic reactions and trigger asthma symptoms in some people. The air spreads allergens around. They settle onto furniture and floors. They vary in size and are measured in microns (also called micrometers).
