Health problems caused by common biological allergens

Pet dander, mold and dust mites are common allergens that can cause chronic health problems for many. The EPA recommends the use of air purification systems to reduce the amount of irritants, like these biological allergens, in the home. The AllerAir AirMedic+ Vocarb, which is available through us at FreshAirPro, is one of the most efficient air purifiers available. It's specially designed for advanced particle control and is an excellent option for all allergy and asthma sufferers.

Some of the main signs that pet dander, mold or dust mites may be problematic in your home are an increase in asthma symptoms, nasal allergies, eye inflammation, recurrent or constant fever, malaise, dyspnea, tightness in the chest and cough.

Keeping the home well-ventilated and humidity levels low can help improve air quality. Using a dehumidifier and repairing existing leaks can keep mold away. Keep carpets clean and dry, and consider removing or replacing them if they've experienced at least 24 hours of unattended water damage.

Unfortunately for many animal lovers, limiting exposure to pets may be the best option for your allergy to pet dander. However, if you can't live without Fluffy, there are things you can do. Vacuum all carpets and upholstered furniture thoroughly and often. This also helps control dust mite symptoms.
