Is Something in Your Home Causing Allergies?
Many people who frequently suffer from allergies rely on over the counter medications and prescription drugs ordered by their family doctor. Many of these medications provide temporary relief, but if the condition lasts for day after day, allergy sufferers should also consider what they may be exposed to in their indoor environments.
While there are many common allergens that can be found in the natural outdoor environment, there are also many allergens that may be present indoors that can often be addressed. By identifying their presence indoors, in many circumstances people who suffer from reactions to these indoor allergens can take proactive measures to dramatically reduce their exposure by dealing with the source.
While people can develop allergies to many substances, some of the more common indoor allergens include mold, bacteria, pet dander, insects, rodents, dust mites, pollen, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and even latex. Fortunately, there are test kits and professionals who specialize in testing indoor environments to identify these common allergens.
“Allergic reactions to indoor allergens are quite common and can occur in sensitive people if these allergens are breathed, touched or ingested,” said Jason Dobranic, Ph.D., Vice President of Microbiology and Life Sciences at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “It is also not uncommon for some people to be allergic to more than one indoor allergen and repeated or long term exposure to any of them may worsen the condition. At EMSL, we provide testing services for indoor allergens and even offer an allergen test kit for homeowners.”
