Anyone that suffers from chronic allergies or asthma could be exposed to elevated levels of indoor pollutants.

Allergy and asthma rates are significantly higher in Puerto Rico as compared to the rest of the United States. This is likely due in part to the island’s tropical marine environment that can be conducive for elevated levels of mold and pollen which are known allergens and asthma triggers for some people.

Allergies can be a significant problem for some people any time of the year, including the summer months. High levels of airborne mold and pollen during the summer months can be an issue for people working or enjoying the outdoors. These same allergens and asthma triggers can also make their way indoors through open doors and windows, and even on one’s clothes and hair.

“People should also consider what they might be exposed to in the air they breathe in their homes, schools and work environments,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “Anyone that suffers from chronic allergies or asthma could be exposed to elevated levels of indoor pollutants. Having a home or building inspected and tested for indications of water damage or elevated humidity levels, and subsequent indoor mold growth, can be highly beneficial. Other common indoor culprits include dust mites, pet dander, and allergens from rodents and cockroaches. Conducted by an experienced and qualified professional, these services could provide the answers needed to mitigate exposure risks and help allergy suffers and asthmatics to better manage their condition.”

In Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean, Zimmetry Environmental’s building science and indoor air quality professionals provide comprehensive site assessments with air and surface testing for a wide range of common indoor allergens, asthma triggers and respiratory irritants. They also recently sponsored an educational video about summer allergies and indoor air quality that can be seen at:
