Extreme Summer Heat Sends Allergy Sufferers Indoors
Posted by Craig on Monday, July 31, 2006
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that this summer's heat is causing many allergy sufferers to stay indoors — but allergy sufferers must remember that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air.

"Indoor air quality is becoming increasingly important to the average homeowner," said Eileen Youds, vice president of Honeywell's N.A. Homes business. "Fortunately, there are many tips and products to help reduce air pollutants significantly. Managing your air quality starts in the home."

To improve your indoor air quality:

  • Do not smoke in your home or allow others to do so.

  • Use an air purifier to remove impurities from the air.

  • Use a dehumidifier to keep the humidity levels at 50 percent or below; this will inhibit growth of dust mites and mold.

  • Test your home for radon, a colorless, odorless gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer.

  • Keep dust to a minimum by mopping, dusting, and vacuuming regularly.

  • Keep pets away from allergy sufferers.

  • When redecorating, select paints and furnishings that do not emit high levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
