Indoor allergens may be far worse at times than the outdoor variety. At first this comment may seem nonsensical. However, when people are outside, they generally have adequate ventilation.

In homes, offices and other indoor spaces, allergens get trapped. Those with respiratory problems, and others who have tendencies toward allergic reactions to environments, can suffer tremendously from stagnant allergens in wait.
It is important to understand just what types of indoor allergens are common and what can be done to lessen them.

Air Pollution
While most people associate air pollution with the outdoors, it is also a big problem for allergy sufferers when inside. During summers, for example, families often shut the doors and seal off windows to conserve the cool air. Consequently, pollutants already inside homes remain unperturbed, becoming even more concentrated. Breathing in these fumes can be even more damaging than going outside, where they are in larger but less concentrated doses.

Running an air conditioner is one way to alleviate this problem; but first, make sure a professional technician has cleaned the ducts and ventilation.

Dogs and cats accumulate pollen and other irritants while outside walking or playing. In turn, families then allow the pets back inside, unknowingly welcoming untold numbers of allergens. First, it is wise to bathe such animals whenever they have been exposed to external germs. Second, given the difficulty accomplishing the first suggestion, such pet owners should also ensure their living spaces have adequate air flo,  so irritants do not remain stagnant. Clean air is good air.

These bacteria thrive in the humidity. Beware them during the summer months, especially. Moreover, everyone should be alert to spores developing in bathrooms, where people run warm, steamy water on a regular basis.
