One of the most important lessons about Asthma and Allergy control begins in your own home. During an Environmental Inspection of your home, it is important to look for all allergens. The majority of people with Allergies and Asthma stay indoors when there are high counts of pollen and spores. Then on the other hand, you can have dust mites, human and animal dander or cockroaches that can cause problems for you indoors. Remember, if you open the windows, all the allergens in the air will infiltrate your home.
If you think about it, just about everyone on the Planet is exposed to dust mites somehow. Whether it is at work or at home, the exposure is there. The same is true about cat or dog animal dander. Most people do not talk about human dander but it is a problem also. I have one client who is allergic to her husband. Her husband cannot sleep in the same bed with her because of her allergic human dander problem that she suffers from.
Another control method is avoiding Roaches that can cause allergic reactions in some individuals. It can be worse in the inner city where where there are a lot of people and the Roach problem is rampant and hard to control. The sad part is that people use pest control methods that are inadequate to fix the problem. Spraying your house for pests will not solve your problem. Using Integrated Pest Management is a proven and less toxic method for pest control. The thing to remember, the bugs are in the walls. Most people spray their baseboards which is futile and a waste of money. Inserting Boric Acid and Baiting Systems into the wall cavities can be a more successful method of controlling roaches. Remember Baiting works.
In conclusion, Allergy and Asthma control begins at home. There are many sources of allergens at home such as dust mites, cat, dog or human dander. These allergens can be controlled by cleaning your home using a HEPA Vacuum Cleaner. It is important to control dust and keep your home clean. Using Integrated Pest Management will help bring your roach problem under control. If you are concerned about your Asthma or Allergies and not sure what to do, it is important that you consult with your Doctor before doing anything. Individuals with Asthma or Allergies that are having a reaction, should contact their Physician immediately.
