Common Allergy Causes in Your Home Right Now

Posted by Innovus Pharma on Feb 21st 2018

When people think of allergies, they typically think of spring and fall seasonal allergies, but there is also a lesser-known type of hay fever called “perennial allergic rhinitis.” You may suffer from this allergy type if you have year-long sniffles, runny nose, or itchy eyes.

Perennial allergic rhinitis occurs when your body overreacts to certain foreign substances. Good news is that you can easily combat these allergy triggers because they are all indoors.

Here are some common allergy causes in your home right now:

House dust is a concoction of dead human skin, insect parts, pollen, fiber, food, and other fine particles that are perfect for triggering your allergies.

Dust mites are microscopic arachnids that consume dust. They can be found particularly in your bed, sofa, and other areas with high humidity and high concentration of human dander. If you are allergic to them, you are probably allergic to the dead dust mites and dust mite excretions.

Mold is a type of fungus that grows in damp areas like the bathroom or basement. They will continuously release airborne spores that can cause allergic reactions.

Pet dander is the dead skin flakes of pets, especially cats and dogs. There is the widespread belief that animal hair causes allergies, but it is pet saliva, urine, and dander that cause allergic reactions. Animal dander is often highlighted because it can easily become allergic airborne dust that attaches to you or float into your home.

Cockroaches, whether you can see them or not, may be sharing your home, especially if you live in a warm and/or densely populated area. Like dust mites, cockroaches only cause allergies when they decompose to fine insect parts or excrete droppings.

You can prevent a lot of these allergy causes by wiping clean your surfaces, changing and cleaning your covers and clothes often, and purifying your air with HEPA filters. Dust mite allergies can be alleviated with specialized bedding covers. Mold allergies can be solved by fixing water leaks, wiping mildew with a mixture of water and either detergent or bleach, or seeking professional help for severe cases.
