As summer days come to an end and the autumn leaves begin to change colour, many people notice a flair-up of sneezing, wheezing and an itchy throat, all indicators that fall allergy season here. To make matters worse, there are indications that climate change is resulting in a season that starts earlier and lasts longer.
Fighting fall allergens
Autumn allergens can be very tough to avoid because they are present in the air you breathe both indoors and out. Mould is another offender and can live indoors and out. It grows wherever there is water, especially in bathrooms and damp basements inside your home. Outside, mould can be found in piles of dead leaves and decaying plant matter that release mould spores into the air. All of these issues can make autumn an especially challenging time for people with sensitivities to mould. Try to minimise your exposure to outdoor allergens by keeping your windows and doors closed as much as possible.
Also use weather apps to keep an eye on the mould and pollen count in your local area. This allows you to avoid spending time outside when the counts are high. It is also helpful to take additional measures to increase the level of air quality inside your home. Using a remote air quality monitor and air purification system as offered by TRUSENS will be a big help in keeping your indoor air quality at acceptable levels. Paired with 360 degree DuPont™ branded air filters and UV sterilisation, these air purifiers are designed to capture pollutants and destroy a high percentage of these pollutants in your home.
