Of the countless people who suffer from allergies each year, a good amount fall prey to ragweed, what Ohama.com calls "the most debilitating of plant allergens."
According to the news source, roughly 10 percent of Americans are ragweed-sensitive, and much to the chagrin of this segment of the population, ragweed season is only getting longer. Some areas of the country have come to experience at least 11 more days of annual misery over the last 15 years or so.
There's little we can do in light of the changing seasons, but there is a good amount of control we can exercise over our immediate home environment.
Installing a professional-grade air purifying system is a top-line defense against ragweed, pollen, pet dander, mold and a range of other allergens and airborne contaminants. An advanced model, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, has the capacity to effectively filter over 99 percent of particulate matter while simultaneously removing harmful chemicals and odors.
