If you have airborne allergies, chances are something in the indoor air is causing you to sneeze, cough, become congested, and generally feel poorly. And if you’re like most people it’s probably a combination of triggers that send your body into overdrive. Here are 5 potent allergens to avoid.


Pet Dander—I’ve got this under control you might think particularly if you don’t have pets. Over 60 million homes have warm-blooded pets that shed dander. And just because you don’t happen to be one of them, doesn’t mean you don’t have dander.


Dander is sticky stuff so if you work with someone or your children go to school with others who have pets; you’ve got some of it in your home. It sticks to clothes, book bags, and hair and is easily transferred on contact.


Once they are in your home, shaking out clothes or putting them on the bed or with other clothes simply spreads the allergen. If your daily routine brings you in constant contact, its easy to understand how the amounts in your home will increase even though you don’t have a pet.


If you do have a pet such as a cat, dog, bird, ferret, bunny or other warm fuzzy friend the production of these dead skin flakes will continue all through your pet’s life. So being able to effectively keep the levels low can help lessen the frequency and intensity of allergy and asthma flare-ups.


Dust Mites—Dust mites feed on dead skin cells. They don’t really care about the source. Human or pet dander is acceptable.. Their favorite room in the house is the bedroom, and more specifically your bed. They thrive in moist, warm, and dark places which make your bed or your pet’s bedding a haven for increasing their population.


It is the protein in their feces (that they drop everywhere) that is such a potent trigger. Being able to minimize their numbers can prevent them from causing respiratory issues and from exacerbating existing ones.


Dust—This is an accumulation of fine particles from many sources. What it contains is slightly different in each home. Taking a piece of it and putting it under a microscopic can tell you volumes about what’s in it.


Generally it has fine pieces of textiles from clothing, upholstery, rugs and other fabrics. It also usually contains tiny pieces of paper from magazines, mail, and paper products. Body parts from insects, pet and human hair, small pieces of feces from mites and other insects as well as bug body parts can add to this collection.


Unfortunately these allergens are a permanent fact of indoor living. Making sure that the levels remain consistently low can stabilize your health and provide relief from symptoms that can range from annoying to debilitating. The best way to manage allergies is to avoid the trigger. And the best pro-active yet non-invasive way to do that is to filter the continually. This will decrease the allergens and can increase quality of life for good.
