What are allergens
Allergens are airborne substances that cause an allergic reaction in humans and pets. Allergen Testing can help you find out what is causing allergic reactions within your home or office. Creating a comfortable atmosphere and ensuring you can breathe easy in your home or office is our goal. Allergens come in many different forms including dust, pet dander, pollen, mold, and smoke. Allergy Watch states that health experts estimate that 35 million Americans suffer from upper respiratory tract symptoms that are allergic reactions to airborne allergens.
Our allergen testing services include an indoor assessment of pollutants to interpret the levels of dangerous toxins and allergens in the air. Luckily, there are actions you can take to prevent this! It is important to consider testing your indoor air quality when allergy-like symptoms arise such as sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, itching skin, wheezing, runny nose, and more.

WHY CHOOSE US
There are many hidden areas in your home where allergens can collect. If you’re concerned about poor air quality in your home, we’d love to help you learn more. Your carpet is one of the main culprits for collecting allergens that were once airborne. Everything from pet dander and mold is collected in the fibers of your carpet, and unless regular cleaning is performed, those allergens are susceptible to becoming airborne again with simply walking around your home. Regular carpet cleaning will extract allergens from carpet fibers if done properly. A cleaning process called “hot water extraction” also known as steam cleaning is most efficient in ridding carpet of allergens. There are also ways you can help your seasonal allergies. Take a look at our blog on Combating Seasonal Allergies to learn more!
High-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) are very beneficial to those who are concerned with allergens. There are many different products that contain HEPA filters, but they all aide in the same ways. HEPA filters cleanse the air of all the microbial airborne particulates and, when vacuuming, ensure that dust and dander do not return into the atmosphere. HEPA filters are also available for central air conditioners which create better indoor air quality overall.
There are many affordable products that can be purchased and delivered to your home as soon as tomorrow. As mentioned above, HEPA filters help improve indoor air quality by cleaning the air and trapping particulates. There are many air purifiers, filters, and vacuums that have a HEPA filter built-in. Purchasing a built-in air purification system that works alongside your HVAC system can do wonders for your air quality.
Tea tree oil is a natural remedy that can aid in purifying the air in your home. This natural fungicide does not get rid of all types of allergens, but it can reduce mold formation by destroying fungi. People who live in wet climates such as Georgia and Florida can benefit from using tea tree oil daily.
