A stuffy nose.Itchy skin.Watery eyes.These are just a few of the symptoms you can experience with spring allergies. But what if these symptoms are related to something inside your home? Like insulation? While you need insulation in your home to stay warm in winter and cool in summer, there is an insulation product you can choose that won’t aggravate allergies.Troublesome insulation
Fiberglass is one of the most commonly known insulation products that acts as an allergy irritant and/or causes allergic dermatitis. In addition to fiberglass, cellulose insulation is also heavily treated with chemicals. Driving indoor air quality
One of the best products on the market for indoor air quality is injection foam insulation. While its superior thermal capacity ensures your home is energy efficient, its unique properties also offer better indoor air quality – and reduce concerns for allergies.You see, the liquid-like product is pumped into your home’s walls. Once it fills out the wall cavity, it hardens and transforms into a solid state, like Styrofoam. Because of its liquid-to-hardened state, the insulation won’t release chemically treated fibers throughout your home or clumps of loose matter – during installation or afterwards.As a result, you can expect a safe, clean environment, and one that won’t contribute to your allergy symptoms. Dealing with spring allergies
There’s not much you can do about outdoor allergens in the spring. Each year, as the flowers and trees bloom, the air becomes full of pollen, ragweed and other allergens. With your indoor area free of chemically treated insulation matter that can aggravate allergies, follow these measures to deal with outdoor allergens:
- Remove your shoes when entering the home.
- Dust and vacuum frequently.
- Remove old leaves and other landscaping from the property.
- Wash your bedding often.
- Remove your clothing after working outside.
