What Are Allergens and Asthma Triggers?
Protecting Your Home
By controlling the relative humidity level in a home, the growth of some sources of biological contaminants can be minimized. A relative humidity of 30-50 percent is generally recommended for homes. Standing water, water-damaged materials, or wet surfaces also serve as a breeding ground for molds, mildews, bacteria, and insects. House dust mites, the source of one of the most powerful biological allergens, grow in damp, warm environments.
Air Allergen & Mold Hazards
Some biological contaminants trigger allergic reactions, including hypersensitivity pneumonitis, allergic rhinitis, and some types of asthma. Allergic reactions occur only after repeated exposure to a specific biological allergen. However, that reaction may occur immediately upon re-exposure or after multiple exposures over time. As a result, people who have noticed only mild allergic reactions or no reactions at all may suddenly find themselves very sensitive to particular allergens.
- Second-hand cigarette smoke
- Pets - warm-blooded mammalian
- Dust mites
Do I Need Testing?
If you have begun to show irritation to your environment, then immediate air testing should follow. Children, elderly people, and people with breathing problems, allergies, and lung diseases are particularly susceptible to disease-causing biological agents in the indoor air. Our trained professionals will test for these particles as well as performing mold testing to eliminate any chance of toxic buildup.
