Those who suffer from seasonal allergies may be ready to welcome the colder months, however it may be too early to start celebrating. With the elevated levels of pollen and mold in the air this year, people can still expect to have their allergies triggered from such simple activities as raking leaves, reports the Courier Journal.
"Fall weed pollens usually persist until the first good freeze, and...there is always some mold in the air unless there is a coat of snow on the ground," Dr. Derek Damin, an allergist with Kentuckiana Allergy, told the news source. "So we are not out of the woods yet."
Because the air outdoors is still packed with allergens like pollen and mold, it's doubly important for allergy sufferers to protect the air inside their homes. Airborne allergens can easily travel inside the home and cause irritation and other symptoms.
The best way to protect a home from these and other types of common allergens is by investing in a home air purifier like the IQAir HealthPro Plus. The medical-grade filter can help remove more than 99 percent of airborne irritants and ensure that the family is breathing easy all year long.
