How to Reduce Indoor Allergies

It's no secret that millions of Americans suffer from various types of allergies every year. Common outdoor allergens like pollen and mold, and the associated hay fever symptoms, can be highly unpleasant for those who suffer from them. But what about indoor allergens? Indoor allergens are commonly overlooked due to their microscopic and invisible nature. Despite the fact that indoor allergens are less publicized, they can still be highly detrimental to your health. What are some examples? And how can they be treated?

Dust Mites

Dust mite droppings are the most common trigger of allergy and asthma symptoms, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology. Dust mites really can be found all over the house, but they tend to concentrate in areas rich with human dander (dead skin flakes) and high humidity, like bedrooms, carpets, and bathroom rugs.

Pet Dander

If you have pet allergies, you're not actually allergic to cat or dog hair. What you're really experiencing is an allergic reaction caused by a tiny protein in an animal's saliva. Even homes without pets can contain dander, because pet dander is sticky and light, and will cling to clothes, shoes, and hair.

Mold

Mold and mildew thrive in high humidity, such as your steamy bathroom or a wet carpet. Once they establish themselves, mold and mildew shed tiny spores which trigger indoor allergy symptoms.
