Is it Possible to be Allergic to Air?
We are going to discuss whether you can be allergic to the air, what allergens could be in your home’s air, and ways that can help your allergies at home.
Why Are My Allergies So Bad?
When it comes to allergies some people will experience severe allergy symptoms that will leave you wondering why are your allergies so bad? An allergy is caused by a specific reaction to an allergen in the body that the immune system identifies as a foreign invader and fights off through the common symptoms of allergies. The more allergens that are in the environment that your body reacts to as a foreign invader the greater your allergy symptoms will be – leading to severe allergies in some individuals.
The signs and symptoms that an individual may experience if they are undergoing an allergy will include the following;
- Itchy eyes
- Watery eyes
- Throat irritation
Indoor Airborne Allergens
The number of people suffering from allergies can be plentiful and this can be caused by the different allergens that are found within your indoor environment. Some people may wonder if they are possibly allergic to air and in some respects you are – as allergens will float in the air and contaminate the air quality leading to allergy symptoms. The major allergens that can be found in an indoor space like a home can include the following:
- Dust Mites: Dust mites are small allergens that feed off of dust and dead skin within your home. They can be found throughout the entire home and will flock to areas where an excess of dust and dead skin is found like a bed and bed linens. These dust mites are so small that they can easily enter into the body and elicit allergy symptoms.
- Pet Dander: When it comes to our furry pets inside of our home, they can sometimes be allergy triggers that will spark an adverse reaction upon contact or exposure. Pet’s release a dander from their fur coat that will become airborne into the environment and stir up allergy symptoms when exposure occurs in the indoor space.
- Mold Spores: As mold grows inside an indoor environment it will start its reproduction process by releasing tiny, microscopic spores into the air called mold spores that can trigger an allergic response in those with allergies. The mold spores will float into the air and potentially reach into the deepest recesses of the lungs and impact human health along with allergy symptoms.
Ways to Help Allergies at Home
Indoor environments like a home or office building can be the ideal places for allergens to build up within and taint the air quality. If you start to experience a tremendous increase in your allergy symptoms while in your home or office than it may be time to start implementing some methods to help reduce allergens in the air.
The EnviroKlenz Air Purifier is a purification device that was designed to successfully and efficiently remove airborne allergens from the air using a two-stage filtration process. The EnviroKlenz Air Cartridge is the first-stage filtration as it uses the EnviroKlenz patented earth mineral technology for noxious odor and chemical neutralization, and the second stage is a hospital-grade HEPA filter for particulate removal such as small allergens in the air. A HEPA filter is able to effectively capture particulate matter as small as 0.3 microns in size which will include small allergens like mold spores from the air.
