Allergens at home Are your allergies worse indoors? Get rid of allergens to maintain a healthy space for you and your loved ones.

Why should you allergy-proof your home?

Allergy attacks are an uncomfortable and irritating experience for anyone sensitive to changes in their environment. Itchy eyes and a runny nose are often only the beginning.

If you ignore these symptoms, there is a risk that you can exacerbate your breathing difficulties and you may end up requiring medical attention.

Contrary to popular belief, there are more allergens in your home than there are outside. This is mainly because of the enclosed space and limited ventilation that are common to most residential spaces.

FAQ

FAQ

What are allergens?

Allergens are pollutants or substances that can cause an allergic reaction, including skin rashes and breathing problems.

There may be many different types of allergens present in your home. These include:

  • Mould and mould spores
  • Dust/dust mites
  • Pet dander
  • Dead skin particles
  • Pollen

Why are allergens bad for you?

When allergens enter your body, they trigger your immune system to react in certain ways to keep you safe. These reactions can inflame your skin, sinuses, airways or even your digestive system.

While allergies or allergic reactions are one of the most common chronic health conditions in the world, after prolonged exposure, they can lead to long-term diseases. These conditions could compromise your health and may even be life-threatening.

Can mould affect your health?

Mould grows through airborne spores, which pollute the air inside your home. These pollutants can reduce the quality of your air and when this is inhaled for long periods, it can cause several physical and mental health conditions. These include:

  • Itchy eyes and skin
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Skin rashes
  • Wheezing
  • Stress and anxiety
