The Importance of Controlling Allergens in a Home


One of the greatest concerns in a home is the amount of dust and allergens that circulate, causing respiratory symptoms for the whole family. If you’ve ever lived in or visited a home with an excess of allergens, it’s immediately obvious. Runny nose, congestion, and coughing for no reason are just a few of the visible effects of an unsafe build-up in a home.

In addition to the symptoms you can easily see, your body is also fighting a battle within. When allergens are detected by the immune system, it narrows its focus and attempts to fight the effects of allergens, leaving other physical repair chores unfinished. Some people can even develop secondary allergies when exposed, as the immune system becomes overwhelmed with its daily battle.

People with allergies, asthma, and autoimmune conditions can suffer the worst effects. Their immune system is continually on overdrive even without environmental irritants. Adding the dust and dust mites, pollen, mold, and other allergens to the mix the sufferer can become unexplainably lethargic and generally unwell. And most people will simply blame their condition without realizing that the particles trapped in their home are causing a majority of the symptoms.

What many homeowners don’t realize is that these irritants are toxic to the body and must be cleared from the home regularly to give your family a healthy living environment. Just like our need for pure filtered water, our bodies depend on clean air to help with detoxification, disease recovery, and daily physical recharging.

That’s why regularly cleaning your home’s heating system is one of the best maintenance activities you can do to improve your health and the one thing you can do that will make a visible change in your family’s health, energy, and ability to easily breathe.
