Snuffing Out Allergies in Your Building

Are you having unexplained flu-like symptoms that can’t be explained by any common virus or bug? Are you experiencing any signs of allergies – stuffy nose, watery and itchy eyes, rashes? Do you feel fatigued and drowsy all the time and don’t really know why?

Your first step should be to the doctor and an allergist to confirm there isn’t something more serious going on. But for most of us, there’s something in the environment that is causing us to feel ill or have allergies. That environment could be outdoors – or even indoors.

If it’s indoor allergies, then you need to take action in your building – such as waterproofing or caulking – to ensure that there isn’t water entering your building. That’s the prime cause for mold, which is a serious allergen for many.

To ensure that you are having allergies, here are some things to look out for today.

Types of allergies you could be having

Some common indoor allergies are respiratory allergies, such as coughs or excessive sneezing. Another major allergy type affects the mucus membranes in your face. If you have this type of allergy, you’ll experience runny noses, watery and itchy eyes and even headaches.

Some of the most troublesome indoor allergies – and most difficult to fully understand what caused them – are skin reactions. You may experience rashes, strange discolorations in your skin, lumps under your skin, or many other variations. Hives, also known as urticaria, are also possible skin reactions to indoor allergies, and can appear in multiple places on the body.
