Improving Poor Indoor Air Quality in Indiana & Michigan

Five Allergy Triggers Causing Nearly 25% of the Population to Suffer

Indoor air triggers in a home can often lead to allergies and respiratory problems for individuals living there. These triggers can vary from dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mold, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from various household products. It is crucial to identify and minimize these triggers to ensure a healthy indoor environment.

Dust mites are microscopic insects that thrive in warm and humid conditions. They feed on dead skin cells and can be found in bedding, upholstered furniture, and carpets. The waste products of dust mites can cause allergies, leading to symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and itchy eyes. Regularly washing bedding in hot water and using dust mite covers can help reduce exposure to these triggers.

Pet dander is another common indoor air trigger, especially for individuals allergic to animal proteins found in pet saliva, urine, and skin flakes. The allergens can cling to furniture, carpets, and clothing, resulting in respiratory issues and allergic reactions. Vacuuming regularly, using air purifiers, and creating pet-free zones in the house can alleviate symptoms.

Pollen can also make its way indoors, especially during the spring and summer months. Open windows, ventilation systems, or even carrying it inside on clothing can introduce pollen into your home. This can be problematic for those with allergies, as pollen can cause hay fever symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. Keeping windows closed, using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, and cleaning floors regularly can help reduce exposure.

Microscopic Mold Spores are another prevalent indoor air trigger, particularly in areas with high humidity levels or water leaks. Mold can release spores into the air, leading to respiratory issues, allergic reactions, and even exacerbating asthma symptoms. It is essential to address any moisture issues promptly and maintain proper ventilation in the house to prevent mold growth.

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Indiana and Michigan have a significant percentage of allergy sufferers. In Indiana, it is estimated that around 22% of the population suffers from allergies, while in Michigan, the percentage is slightly higher at 24.5%. These numbers indicate that a substantial portion of the population in both states is affected by indoor and outdoor allergens.

Understanding the common indoor air triggers and their potential impact on health can help individuals take proactive steps to reduce exposure. Pure Air Indiana are the specialists that can assist you with understanding and implementing the regular cleaning, proper ventilation & humidity controls, and using air purifiers or filters can significantly improve indoor air quality and alleviate allergy symptoms for residents in both Indiana and Michigan.
