Top Ways Outside Allergens Are Brought Indoors

Top Ways Outside Allergens Are Brought Indoors


When outdoor allergens migrate into your home, they can cause red, itchy, eyes, sinus congestion, sneezing, runny noses, headaches and all kinds of misery.

Calling in the professionals at Green Pro Cleaning & Restoration can help eliminate outdoor allergens and end the misery.


How Outdoor Allergens Get Inside Homes


Allergy sufferers usually do as much as they can to keep a barrier between themselves and the outdoor allergens that make their lives miserable. Unfortunately, there are many ways irritating outdoor allergens make their way into your home without you being aware of them.

We at Green Pro Cleaning & Restoration want to help our neighbors in Suffolk County and Nassau County become aware of some ways outdoor allergens get into their homes and encourage them to call us to thoroughly clean their homes to remove them.


Outdoor allergens get indoors through:


1. Open Windows And Doors

Every time you open and close your doors, outdoor allergens have the opportunity to come in, especially in spring and summer. If you use electric fans while the windows are open, outdoor allergens will spread throughout your home.

2. On Your Clothing

One of the most common ways allergens can get into your home is on your clothing. Pollen and other types of outdoor allergens are always being carried around by the wind and deposited on your clothing. When you walk into your home, you bring it with you.

3. Mowing The Lawn

Whenever someone mows the lawn, a lot of outdoor allergens are thrown into the air and on to their hair and clothing. When that person comes into the house, the allergens come with them.

4. Gardening

Just a few minutes spent puttering around in the garden can leave a person covered in outdoor allergens. Unless that person removes the clothing they are wearing while still outside, those allergens will hitch a ride indoors on them.

5. Using Outdoor Clotheslines

Clothes drying on outdoor clotheslines act like a magnet for pollen and other outdoor elements the can cause allergic reactions. Drying your clothes using a vented dry will help to keep outside allergens from invading your home.
