People with allergies look at the promise of spring time from an entirely different perspective: it can be both the most beautiful time of year and at the same time the most miserable.
The distress allergy sufferers experience is often not limited to the cycle of the seasons. Anyone with seasonal allergies can become just as sensitive to pet dander and concentrated foul odors; even dust particles as small as 1 micron can be a huge problem. The minor presence of common mold and mildew can cause extreme discomfort and health risks.

Common allergens ‘hiding’ in the home environment:
- Dust mites are microscopic arachnids found anywhere there is dust. Just one gram of dust can contain anywhere from 100 to 500 dust mites.
- Pet dander is small scales of skin shed by animals.
- Mold spores are microscopic fungal “seeds” that thrive in damp areas of the home, such as the basement, kitchen, and bathroom. Carpet and upholstery dust harbors millions of fungal spores.
- Cockroaches are common, unseen house guests. Their body parts and droppings are highly allergenic.
- Pollen is the microscopic reproductive component of flowering plants and trees. It enters the home from outdoors and is a common component of house dust.
- Allergens are constantly tracked into the home from outdoors. Some are present in the home because of pets, while others (such as mold) grow in damp areas. Research has shown that indoor carpet environments act as a collector for these allergens. When carpets are not professionally cleaned regularly, these particles can become airborne.
