May is the peak season for allergy sufferers and is Allergy Awareness Month.
About 2.5 million Canadians suffer from allergies, or about 7.5 per cent of the population or one in 13. So how do you prevent allergen buildup in your homes?
Many people think allergies are associated to the sensitivity to pollen and grass, but there are a lot of other things indoors that trigger allergies as well.
Household pests including mice, rats, bed bugs, cockroaches, mites and many more can aggravate allergy symptoms, particularly in children. Therefore controlling household pests is very important to stop possible reactions.
One study found 95 percent of allergists thought a clean pest-free home was important in preventing allergy symptoms.
To insure the air in your house is fresh and clean make sure your house is pest free.
