How to Combat Common Summer Allergens

How to Combat Common Summer Allergens

Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors. A time for trips to the lake or Cape Cod, outdoor entertaining, and relaxing in the warmth of the sun.

But for many, it’s also a time for scratchy throats, watery eyes, and itchy skin, all caused by summer allergens.

Here’s a list of the most likely offenders:

Pollen

While trees finish pollinating by late spring, grasses and weeds can trigger allergies throughout the summer, triggering runny noses, itchy eyes, and other symptoms. So do your best to keep away from ragweed, cockle weed, Russian thistle, Bermuda grass, blue grass, and red top.

Dust Mites

Because they thrive in warm, humid temperatures, dust mites peak during the summer months. They nest in mattresses, carpets, and upholstery and can cause sneezing, runny noses, and problems with your breathing.

Mold

Mold can trigger allergic reactions while exacerbating problems with asthma. Certain types of outdoor mold, like Alternaria, tend to peak in late summer and fall, while warmer temps and increased humidity provide the ideal environment for indoor mold growth.

Stings and Bites

Getting stung by a bee or bitten by a pesky mosquito is no fun at all. But for some, it’s downright dangerous. Bees, wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, mosquitos, and fire ants are just some of the culprits to look out for this and every summer.

If the symptoms are serious enough, you’ll want to see your doctor for prompt treatment.

Preventive Measures

You don’t need to passively wait for allergy problems to make life miserable. Fight back by employing these protective measures:

  • Wear a surgical mask while cutting your lawn.
  • If you have your lawn cut for you, make sure all windows and doors are closed while it’s being tended to.
  • Get family members to take off their shoes upon entering the house and leave them by the door. That help prevent pollen, ragweed, pesticides, etc., from being dragged into and all around your home.
  • Invest in house plants known for their air cleaning ability, such as rubber trees, cacti, ivy, and Boston Fern.

For improved air quality, talk to the pros at Correct Temp about effective whole-house air filtration solutions. We have one or more that’s just right for you, and we’ll be happy to explain the features and benefits of each.
