People who suffer from allergies
, indoor air pollution, or asthma, can have different things that can trigger their symptoms. It is a known fact that allergens present themselves in the form of flowers, weeds, grass and other things that can be found outdoors such as trees in your local area and especially in Florida, which is why you should keep your trees trimmed. Most people are not aware of the fact that indoor air pollution is actually at a higher rate than outdoors and that it is actually 25 times higher and the source can be anything, such as allergens, pollen or dust mites. Some of the most common allergens that can be found indoors are pet dander, such as flakes from the skin, urine, and saliva, mold, cockroach droppings, flea infestations, pollen or pet hair.
Living organisms, such as bacteria, mold and dust mites, as well as yeast, are as a result of moisture. A building that is damp
and has high humidity can lead to an increased level of mold and dust mites and can also lead to increasing allergic reactions as well as a worsening state of asthma. People who have no allergies can have a reaction to mold, which produces mycotoxins, as well as volatile organic chemicals, which smell horrible and can cause respiratory illnesses. Dust mites are microscopic and thrive in humidity, they are able to cause allergic reactions, as well as trigger symptoms of asthma in non-sufferers.
