The peak of the allergy season is upon us. Over 50 million Americans suffer from allergies and over half of all U.S. citizens test positive to one or more allergens. It is the 6th leading chronic disease where 2/3 of the sufferers are adults and 1/3 children. You can experience chronic sinusitis, hives, stuffy, runny noses and fatigue. This time of year, it’s airborne allergens, mostly pollen, that causes the most allergies! You can experience symptoms for days, weeks or months. You can even miss work and school because of allergens. Allergies are hereditary where a child is 48% more likely to experience allergic disease if one parent has the disease. If both parents have the disease, the risk grows to 70%.
Reduce exposure and remediate the airborne contaminates in your home with a high quality air purifier, the Allergy Machine.
Pollen Allergy Sources
Pollen allergy, sometimes referred to as hay fever is triggered by all flowering plants. These plants emit tiny airborne cells as part of the plant’s reproduction cycle. The main sources for pollen are trees, weeds, and grass.
Health Affects From Pollen
The airborne pollen passes through our nose and throat. The mucus membrane inflames, histamine releases and the blood vessels dilate. The membrane swells and mucus is produced. Sufferers can experience sneezing, watery eyes, itchiness, and the reddening of the eyes. Dark circles may form under the eyes. Mild cases can become chronic and severe.
Dealing With Allergies
See a doctor when experiencing serious allergy symptoms. Your condition could evolve to be life threatening. Take medication if recommended. Stay indoors when pollen levels are high. Keep your home sealed tight with doors and windows closed. Keep cloths clean, free of pollen trapped in the fibers. Keep indoor air quality high by cleaning the vast quality of pollen that enters your home’s indoor air. Use a high-quality air purifier designed especially for allergy and asthma suffers. It should have a series of filtering that includes: a medical grade High Efficiency Particulate Arresting (HEPA) filter, a High Efficiency Gas Arresting (HEGA) filter and an activated carbon blend. The HEPA filter should be 99.97% effective at removing particles as small as 0.3 microns and the HEGA and carbon capable of removing the particle gases. This combination will remove airborne particle matter like pollen, dander, tobacco smoke, toxic chemicals, mold, and other airborne pollutants. We recommend the Austin Air Allergy Machine. This unit has all these features, is a high quality system built to last and comes with a 5 year guarantee.
The allergy season has begun and will last into the summer. Take steps to reduce exposure to allergens, particularly if you are highly sensitive. Install an indoor air purifier, the Allergy Machine to ensure that your indoor air is healthy and safe for you to breathe.
