Summer Allergies in Puerto Rico due to Outdoor Pollen & Mold or Indoor Contaminants?
Zimmetry Environmental provides air quality testing services to identify, resolve and prevent allergy and asthma problems in indoor environments.
Many people suffer from chronic allergies and this may be an indication that there could be indoor allergens in their home, school or place of business.
Many Puerto Ricans have allergies and although many associate the condition with the spring season, allergies can be a problem any month of the year. Summer allergies can be caused by seasonal outdoor culprits or due to the presence of indoor allergens. Two of the most common causes of summer allergies are due to the presence of pollen and mold.
Just last week, the National Allergy Bureau Pollen and Mold Report indicated that the San Juan area had moderate concentrations of tree pollens and high concentrations of outdoor mold. Across the entire Caribbean, moderate to high levels of airborne mold spores and pollen from trees and plants can be a common occurrence during this time of year.
Outdoors, warm and moist conditions are conducive for elevated mold spore counts which can be an issue for people working or enjoying the outdoors. These same spores can also make their way indoors through open windows and doors and even on people’s clothes, hair and pets.
“Many people suffer from chronic allergies and this may be an indication that there could be indoor allergens in their home, school or place of business,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “These people should inspect their indoor environments for indications of water damage or elevated humidity levels that could suggest the presence of indoor mold growth and even elevated concentrations of dust mites. Even if a visual inspection does not indicate a problem, there could still be issues that are out of sight in crawl spaces, attics, wall cavities and other locations.”
For those who suffer from indoor allergies, Zimmetry’s building science professionals provide comprehensive site investigations with air and surface testing for a wide range of common indoor allergens. Understanding what is present, and where the allergens are coming from, is essential for providing relief to allergy sufferers.
