Reduce Allergy and Asthma Symptoms in Greater Aberdeen

Improving air quality in your home in Chapel Hill can help ease your allergies and asthma

Invisible irritants. A variety of indoor air pollutants can trigger allergic reactions and respiratory ailments. Some airborne pollutants (like mold) are microscopic organisms, while others are chemical compounds or particulates.

Asthma affects about 23 million Americans, including 7 million children. Attacks and reactions can be triggered by everything from foods to exercise. If you or a member of your family suffers from asthma or allergies, controlling the air quality in your home can reduce symptoms. Commonly inhaled household allergens include dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mold, and cockroach.

Take Control of Your Home's Indoor Air Quality

As with any indoor air quality problem, it's important to begin by ensuring adequate ventilation and air cleaning. Energy recovery ventilation systems, air cleaners, improved HVAC filtration, in-duct humidifier maintenance, and duct cleaning, sealing and insulating can all help. An aggressive cleaning campaign is essential as well.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America recommends the encasement of pillows, mattresses and box springs and weekly laundering of bedding. Vacuuming twice weekly with a model equipped with a HEPA filter or special double filter bag and damp-cloth dusting are also advised.

We offer our many services in Raleigh, Cary, Aberdeen, and neighboring areas such as Garner, Apex, Fayetteville, Chapel Hill, Fuquay Varina, Fort Bragg, Durham, and more.

Are Mold, Must and Dampness the Cause?

Recent studies show that damp houses may be a cause of asthmatic attacks and allergic reactions -- and even of developing asthma in the first place -- because excess moisture allows mold to thrive. Mold spores, particles from dead mold, and digested bits of the substrate upon which the mold grew can all contribute to reactions the studies suggest. Dust mites also rely upon warm humid conditions. They die when the humidity falls below 40 to 50 percent and are not usually found in dry climates.

Comfort Services, Inc. can help you identify sources of moisture and recommend ways to reduce and in some cases eliminate it all together. Common sources of moisture issues include high humidity; condensation on uninsulated pipes, ducts, and heating and cooling equipment; and water leaks in plumbing, foundations, roofs or anywhere else in the building envelope. Dehumidifiers, duct and pipe sealing and insulation, basement waterproofing and crawlspace encapsulation, and a thorough inspection of the home's HVAC, plumbing, roofing, siding, and flashing can help eliminate water leaks and reduce mold populations.
