Fall activities can lead to continued allergy symptoms

Unfortunately, just because autumn is underway doesn't mean there's an end in sight to allergy season - yet. Lingering weeds and mold may cause symptoms to flare up while doing last-minute yard work or participating in fall recreational activities like apple picking.

"As we get into October, the weed count is dropping, but it may bounce up and down, depending on the weather patterns for a while longer," allergist Dr. Stephen Pollard recently told the Chicago Sun Times. "The other major problem we have typically in the fall is with mold...because the leaves come down and compost...[and therefore] the mold will continue on for several weeks yet."

What's worse is that the first frost - and with it, the end of allergy season - is expected late this season. To eliminate allergens from your home, consider purchasing a professional-grade air purifier like those we sell at FreshAirPro. The HealthPro Plus by IQAir is one of the best air purifiers on the market. While most purifiers can only remove particles larger than .3 microns in size, the IQAir HealthPro Plus features a HyperHEPA filtration system, which can effectively filter particles as small as .003 microns in size.
