Allergies affect nearly 50 million Americans every year. If you have ever suffered from allergies, you know that they can severely disrupt your day-to-day life. Here, we will look at some tips for avoiding allergies.
Know exactly what you are allergic to
The first step to effectively avoiding allergic reactions is to pinpoint which allergens affect you. If you don’t know what is causing your allergic reactions, it will be much more difficult to avoid them. We offer a simple allergy test that allows us to identify what kind of allergy is present. Once we have this information, it is much easier to develop and enact an allergy treatment plan to help you get your life back.
Have your air ducts cleaned
The air ducts in your home can circulate dust throughout your home up to seven times a day. If you haven’t had your air ducts cleaned before, you’d be surprised at how much dust, pollen, and other debris can accumulate inside of them. All of this dust and debris can be a major cause of allergies.
Keep your carpet clean
Another common place that allergens like dust mites, dirt, and pollen, can accumulate in your home is right under your feet. The fibers in your carpet do a great job of trapping these allergens, but each time you walk around your house, you kick them back into the air. Maintaining a regular carpet cleaning schedule will remove these allergens from your home.
Don’t let allergies take control of your life. Contact us today to schedule your appointment at our Corpus Christi allergy clinic so that we can help you determine what allergies you have. With this knowledge, developing a plan for treating your allergies, and avoiding the allergens that trigger your reactions, will be much easier.
