When you suffer from seasonal allergies, spring is less about the return of wonderful warm weather and more about dealing with constant, debilitating symptoms. Here at our basement waterproofing company in Bergen County, NJ, we’ve put together some useful tips that will help make your home a more comfortable, allergen-free space.
What Causes Allergies?
Spring allergies cause a range of symptoms, including a runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, itching eyes and sinus complaints – but what is the cause behind these symptoms and why do only some people suffer from it?
The answer is that spores, pollen, dust and other tiny particles are released into the air in high volumes in the spring. These particles are recognized by the body, which responds by releasing defensive chemicals called histamines. It’s these histamines that cause your symptoms.
It’s all down to how our individual immune systems respond to allergens, unfortunately, and there’s no cure. There are ways to help reduce the amount of allergens in your home, which will reduce the frequency and severity of your immune system’s reaction. This includes:
- Checking for and repairing all leaks, especially in the basement, as this can become a home to mold.
- Cleaning your HVAC filters regularly.
- Repairing basement cracks and damage that can let in dusty air and moisture.
- Invest in a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture and make breathing more comfortable.
- Call in mold removal specialists if your home has a musty smell (check basement, crawlspaces and in cupboards).
