With the change in weather, pollen counts will soon be through the roof and many of us will have to deal with the sneezing, sniffling and watery, itchy eyes that define spring.
Allergic reactions can be caused by virtually anything. If your body perceives something as a threat, it’ll have your immune system kick into overdrive trying to fend it off. Since everyone is different, allergies can affect someone while someone else goes entirely unaffected or only experiences minor symptoms.
Although we commonly hear about seasonal or food allergies, similar symptoms can be caused by the various substances floating around in your home’s air. Indoor air pollutants may exacerbate allergy and asthma symptoms, so by taking measures to improve your home’s indoor air quality, you’ll reduce the chances of severe problems.
Improving Indoor Air Quality to Reduce Allergies & Asthma
How can you make your Atlanta area home healthier for the spring and every season?
Remove Old, Dirty Insulation
Just like any part of your home, insulation doesn’t last forever. If you don’t remember when it was installed, it’s possible that it’s not doing its job anymore. Not only may your insulation not be an adequate thermal barrier for your home, but it may already have deteriorated and become home to a variety of pollutants, pollen and pests over the course of time.
It’s likely that if your home’s insulation is already outdated, then its air sealing is probably not in better shape — meaning all the contaminants from your insulation are penetrating into your home and floating around in the air you and your family breathe every day.
Removing old and dirty insulation is the first step in improving your home’s indoor air quality to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms.
Air Seal & Insulate with Spray Foam
Once all the insufficient, dusty insulation is removed, air sealing and insulating with spray foam, especially a product like AirTight360 Hybrid Spray Foam Insulation, will help to fill all the nooks and crannies in your walls. This will keep out pollen and allergens, preventing them from making their way into your home.
Not only does air sealing and insulation help to dramatically improve your home’s indoor air quality, but it also aids in making your home more comfortable year-round and reducing your monthly home heating and cooling costs.
