4 Allergy Triggers to Avoid in the Home

Be sure to clean up after your furry friend!

Holiday season is quickly approaching which means that friends and family will be stopping over for parties and sometimes even unannounced.  Aunt Sue and Uncle Dan have made their physical reactions clear about the dog and your sister has reminded you yet again that her youngest has another new food allergy this year. Before you break out the vacuum and wipe down the counters, consider all of the allergy-triggering aspects in your home that could make your guests uncomfortable.

Molds

Did you know that as many as 250,000 mold spores could fit on one pinhead? They’re found indoors and outdoors and typically peak in the late summer and fall months. Dark, moist areas of your house such as the basement or bathroom are more at risk more developing mold.

Pets

About 15% of the general population suffers from allergies to pets. The proteins found in saliva, pet dander and the urine of your furry friend are carried on small particles throughout your home, easily exposed to guests.

Foods

Up to 90% of food-allergies are caused by cow’s milk, eggs, peanuts, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish. The most common symptoms are hives, eczema, asthma, and gastrointestinal symptoms. During the course of the holiday season, it’s best to keep these foods from out in the open where potential guests with allergies may come in contact with them.

Air Pollutants

Pollutants such as tobacco smoke, wood smoke, and certain household cleaners can trigger asthma and allergies. Certain strong odors and perfumes also can trigger reactions. If you’ve made a habit out of smoking indoors, be sure to shampoo your carpet or deep scrub, as the smoke clings easily to all fibers surrounding it.
