Home Ventilators Combat Stafford’s Spring Allergies

ventilators for spring allergiesAs the weather in the Stafford area becomes warmer, allergens from outdoors may find their way indoors through open windows and doors, mixing with the allergens that are already likely to be in your home. This may cause problems for anyone in your family who suffers from allergies, triggering symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, coughing or wheezing. Home ventilators and air purifiers can help to improve the air quality in your home by removing the following allergens.

Household Dust

Household dust can contain any number of allergens, including dead skin cells from occupants and pets, insect droppings, pollen, mold spores, soil and both natural and synthetic fibers. Dust is often disturbed while cleaning, and can be redistributed by the HVAC system if it is not properly filtered.

Dust Mites

These tiny insects live in the dust, feeding off dead skin cells. They particularly like to call soft materials such as bed linens, home. Dust mites prefer high humidity, so proper ventilation that reduces moisture levels can help to eliminate them along with washing all bedding regularly.

Mold and Mildew

Both mold and mildew thrive in humid areas, like in the basement or bathroom. They release spores into the air, and these spores can be problematic for anyone with allergies. In some cases, they can be extremely toxic. In combination with regular cleaning using a solution of bleach, home ventilators can help to lower humidity levels and reduce mold and mildew growth.

Pet Dander

A combination of dead skin cells and saliva from your pets can cause allergy symptoms for those who are susceptible. Regular cleaning of clothes, and bedding, including pets’ bedding, along with proper air filtration can help to reduce the symptoms.

Pollen

Pollen carried or blown in from outdoors can easily collect in your home. Regular dusting and cleaning of carpets and floors, along with a good air filtration system, will help to reduce irritation.
