The Airborne Allergens

Allergies can be caused by food, insect stings, or even medications but your home is susceptible to airborne allergens that like to hide in your air ducts. Over time, they can build up and launch attacks. There is no cure for allergies, but you can take the necessary steps to manage your symptoms.

Most allergens are invisible to the eye, but by setting reminders to clean, you can stay on top of protecting your home and loved ones. Your air ducts are susceptible to the following:

  • Dust mites
  • Animal dander
  • Pollen
  • Mold
  • Bacteria
  • Pollution

Some preventable measures you can do on your own is to keep vent covers clean and change air filters often. However, when the season of allergies arrives, it’s best to employ a professional duct cleaning company. The microscopic dust mites can cause skin rashes and their population in your home can be controlled with clean air ducts.

If you have a pet with fur or feathers, like a cat, dog or bird, you are inhaling their dander of flecks of skin shed by them. Even if you don’t, animal dander is so common and airborne that it can be brought into your home or building because of its airborne nature. Keeping this pesky allergen out of your home can be the difference between suffering from allergies or not.

Largely considered to be seasonal in nature, pollen allergies can strike at the most unsuspecting time. Since it is so common and can be created by trees, grasses and weeds, your allergies can flare up when you least expect it. Keeping your air ducts clear and clean ensures that you can find refuge in your home or office when the pollen count is highest.

Indoor molds are known to cause allergy symptoms year-round. If the spores get into your nasal passages or sinuses you could experience inflammation or a mucus drain. A clean air duct system can trap mold spores before they can circulate in your home. Mold may have thought it found a safe sanctuary in your air ducts but you can route them out to breathe free again.

Exposure to bacteria can produce an allergic inflammation which is preventable. Bacteria’s omnipresence is one of the reasons asthma and hay fever are so prevalent. Protecting your business and home from these nuisances is another reason why keeping your air ducts clean is a priority.

Finally, exposure to pollution in your environment, such as smog or tobacco smoke, will follow you into your home and office and can trigger your allergies and other respiratory problems. In addition to the normal reactions to allergies, you could be susceptible to headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath. You deserve to breathe freely from this and can if your air ducts are maintained and kept clean.

Clean, healthy air can mean the difference of enjoying your life or spending your time running to the pharmacy and looking for a tissue. Allergy season can be managed if the right steps are taken. Call J.R. Air Duct Cleaning today to get the upper hand on these pests!
