Fight Fall Allergies with Rocky Mountain Clean AirOctober 2nd, 2020 | seoteam
Colorado Springs has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. But with this natural beauty often comes allergic reactions, especially during the changing of seasons. Most people are familiar with spring allergies, but did you know many people suffer allergy symptoms in fall as well? Our experts at Rocky Mountain Clean Air tell you why and what you can do about it.
What’s in the Air That Causes Fall Allergies?
Most spring allergies are tied to the emergence of plants after a long, dormant winter. Pollen from trees, grass, flowers and other plants is picked up by the wind and deposited on our clothes, hair and inside our homes. But in the fall, plants are dying or re-entering dormancy. So why do we get allergy symptoms then?
Most fall allergy symptoms are due to mold and ragweed.
Trees shed their leaves and they pile up on the ground. When it rains, they get wet and it’s hard for them to dry, since the days are shorter and cooler. Thus, they stay wet and grow mold. In fact, that “fall smell” that people love so much is really just leaves decomposing.
Further, although many plants are shutting down for the season right now, ragweed still produces pollen through October.
You can stay indoors to avoid the mold spores and pollen. But will that be enough?
Air Duct Cleaning in Colorado Springs
The answer is usually no, unfortunately. If you don’t take the proper precautions, the contaminants can find a way into your home and continue to make you sick for weeks. But Rocky Mountain Clean Air has some suggestions for you for combating this problem.
First, check your air filter and if it’s dirty, replace it. An air filter clogged with dust, pollen and mold spores just blows these contaminants through your house every time your heat or A/C comes on. If you suffer from asthma, COPD or another breathing disorder, you may benefit from getting an electrostatic filter from Rocky Mountain Clean Air. These filters trap more particles than regular filters, and you never need to replace them — just periodically wash them.
If you haven’t had your air vents cleaned in a year or more, call Rocky Mountain Clean Air and schedule air duct cleaning. We’ll get all the dust, dirt and debris out of your air vents. You’ll notice a difference in your health, and your home will be cleaner too.
A UV air purifier helps by killing the pathogens you can’t see. These devices, installed within your HVAC, use ultraviolet light to kill mold spores, pollen, viruses and bacteria — all before it even enters your home.
