Most people aren’t bothered by perfumes, which can be found not just in the fragrant liquids or aerosols that individuals spray on themselves but also cleaning supplies, candles, and other common consumer products. If you find yourself troubled by perfumes, switching to unscented candles and detergents can alleviate your symptoms.
Dust and Mold
Dust, mold, pollen, and other organic particulate matter are common allergens that can cause severe symptoms in some people. Regular dusting and vacuuming can keep the problem to a minimum, and an fresh air filters on a regular basis for your HVAC system can capture the vast majority of particulates circulating in the air. Still dealing with the sniffles? Try placing a HEPA air purifier in your bedroom and any other room that you occupy multiple hours every day.
Tobacco and other byproducts from smoking cigarettes and newer vape pens can cause allergic flareups. We recommend only smoking outside plus installing specialized air filter cartridges that capture tobacco smoke to remove the contaminants and odor from the air.
