Reducing the Effects of Spring Pollen in Your Michigan Home
Beat Spring Allergies With an Air Purifier
Spring is here, and so are the seasonal allergies. With increased pollen levels in the air, it’s no wonder that many in the Metro Detroit area are suffering from itchy eyes, sneezing, and coughing. Luckily, an air purifier can help reduce the pollen in your home and help you breathe easier this season. Let’s look at how air purifiers work to beat spring seasonal allergies in Michigan.
Types of Spring Pollen in Michigan
In Michigan, there are three main types of pollen:
- Tree pollen from oaks, ash, hickory, poplar, and walnut
- Flower pollen from chamomile, chrysanthemums, daisies, and goldenrod
- Grass pollen from ryes and fescues
The most common allergens in Metro Detroit tend to be oak trees during early spring, followed by ryes during mid-spring. Grass pollens generally become more prominent in the late spring and early summer months. All these pollens can trigger symptoms like sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, and congestion, which can interfere with everyday life activities.
The good news is that an air purifier can help reduce these symptoms by trapping and removing airborne allergens from the atmosphere within your home or office space. Studies have shown that using an air purifier with a HEPA filter effectively reduces indoor and outdoor pollution sources, including pollen particles, by up to 99%. By doing this, you can breathe easier, knowing your family won’t be exposed to harmful contaminants from outside sources!
What Is an Air Purifier?
An air purifier is a device that helps remove indoor contaminants such as dust particles, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, and others from the atmosphere. An air purifier uses filters to clean the air that passes through them by trapping small particles and allergens. It is important to note that not all air purifiers are created equal — some may be better equipped than others to filter out certain particles, such as pollen or smoke. You should always research what type of filter your unit has before purchasing one for your home.
Benefits of Installing an Air Purifier
An air purifier can help reduce allergies by removing pollen and other allergens from the air inside your home. It does this using filters that capture particles as small as 2 microns. This is helpful because some allergens, such as pollen or dust mites, are too small for standard HVAC filters to remove from your home’s air. An air purifier can help you breathe easier this spring by filtering out these pesky particles before they enter your respiratory system.
Plus, many modern air purifiers are equipped with additional features that make them even more effective at reducing indoor allergens. Models with HEPA filters capture airborne particles like spores, mold, bacteria, pet dander, and more! Other models come with UV lights that disinfect the air by killing microorganisms like viruses and bacteria.
