Many people move to the Phoenix metro area from other parts of the United States thinking their allergy problems will go away. But there can be a high pollen count in Phoenix and Arizona’s desert dust creeps into every nook and cranny of our homes, though there are many things we can do to prevent this pollution intrusion.
Poor indoor air quality is a major pathway for pollen and many other airborne pollutants. A poorly maintained a/c unit and compromised ducts can be prime real estate for germs. Inefficient filters can be home to many types of bacteria and viruses. Air coming through leaky doors and windows circulates dust, pollen, gasses, and odors through your home. And while some bacteria will cause odors, others won’t, so don’t count on a tell-tale scent to know if your system is housing mold and other pollutants.
Pollen is by far the most difficult allergen to avoid. All types of plants generally favor warm, sunny days for releasing pollen, and they prefer the kind of dry air typical of Arizona. Although these pollen grains are tiny, compared to other allergenic particles, they are big and heavy. This makes them easier to trap in an efficient filtering system.
Between proper air balancing, duct sealing, and using the correct filter, you can prevent pollen and other allergens from getting in your house, significantly reducing allergies and asthma symptoms.
