It is forecast to be a very wet and somewhat cool week here in Connecticut, which is not typical of the first week of June! This can be both good and bad for the allergy and asthma sufferers out there; in one respect the rain helps to keep the tree and grass pollen from floating around, but in another respect mold spores and dust mites are higher inside the home on those damper days. The higher the humidity or dampness in the air, the better the environment for mold spores and dust mites to multiply and wreak havoc.
Dust mites are a major trigger for allergy and asthma sufferers. Carpet can encourage the moisture breeding ground for those dust mites to thrive, however carpet is not an allergy sufferer’s biggest enemy. Carpet can actually help to keep the dust mites from floating around the home whereas hardwood floors promote the flow of dust mites moving around the home. Think of your carpet as a filter, trapping the particles that are in the air and keeping them low and away from our nasal passages. Carpet has gotten a bad reputation for allergy and asthma sufferers alike, but in many cases, carpet can actually keep the triggers of allergies and asthma at bay.
