One in three UAE residents suffers from an allergy during summer when dust and humidity are high, say health experts.
One of the most common allergy triggers is an unclean air-conditioning duct. Cool, damp and humid ducts, when not cleaned frequently, become breeding grounds for molds, fungus and bacteria. When the air-conditioning is switched on, these fine particles fly through the air and are inhaled, triggering strong allergies. The Healthy Home's 6-step air duct cleaning and sanitization process ensures that the air coming out of your AC is pure and bacteria-free.
The main airborne allergens (substances that cause allergic reactions) are pollen and dust whereas indoor substances like house dust mites and mould spores are behind allergy attacks year round.
The change in season will bring on a spate of airborne allergies, cautioned allergy specialists, who advised necessary precautions. Allergies, which can interfere with daily activities and impact quality of life, are known to reduce productivity and lead to absenteeism at work and at school.
Specialists state that the most common allergies this time of the year are allergic rhinitis (hay fever), allergic conjunctivitis and allergic asthma. Allergic rhinitis is caused by pollen as well as pollutants like mould, dust mites and animal dander. It presents symptoms including sneezing and runny nose.
