In spring and occasionally summer there is more pollen in the air. Allergy sufferers, in particular, suffer from this and not only when they are outside in nature. Pollen gets into your home through the smallest openings such as window and door cracks and is also brought home on clothing. A large number of particles collect in the room air. The concentration of pollution in the air is often higher indoors than it is outdoors.
Since indoor air impurities, such as pollen or house dust, can get into the respiratory tract and trigger allergic reactions, you are not protected from the unpleasant effects at home either. The typical symptoms are watery eyes, a runny nose, fatigue, and itchy mucous membranes. The ability to concentrate, for example at work, can be restricted as a result and usually burden allergy sufferers long after the workday has ended. The allergic reactions at night are also a nuisance for many: They rob those affected by sleep and shorten the recovery time.
Tips for preventing pollen allergens
Of course there are ways to protect yourself from a pollen allergy, such as medication or an air purifier.
Please also note the other tips and tricks – because in the home pollen is not only in the air, but also on clothing and other textiles such as carpets, and furniture. Therefore, the following can be applied:
- Use few carpets and other textiles such as curtains, especially in the bedroom
- Change bed linen regularly
- Regular cleaning, vacuuming, and dusting of your home
- Do not dry laundry outside during pollen season
- Do not take off or store worn clothing in the bedroom
- Take a shower before going to sleep, as pollen can also collect in your hair
Air Purifiers for Pollen Prevention
There are good reasons to breathe a sigh of relief for allergy sufferers: air purifiers are a good solution in many cases for pollen allergies. Air purifiers constantly remove pollen and other pollutants such as house dust or allergens. Thus, they provide relief within your own four walls. You should, however, pay attention to a few criteria when buying:
- Choose a device with the right room size for you
- Choose an air purifier that does not exceed the noise level of 40 decibels during the day and 30 decibels at night – so the device can also be used perfectly in the bedroom
- The device should have a HEPA filter (High-Efficiency Particulate Air / Arrestance) of class H13 or H14. These can filter pollen and other fine particles out of the air
- Also ensure that the device does not work with ozone, as this can pollute the room air with additional substances that are harmful to health
