In Las Vegas we seem to go from summer straight to winter faster than you can blink your eyes. Even though fall temperatures may not last as long as we would like them to, problems from fall allergies can seem to linger for far too long. Do members of your family suffer from allergies? Do you know what allergies are most prevalent in the fall here in the Las Vegas Valley? Do you know what you can do to help them make it through the fall allergy season with as much ease as possible?
Fall Winds Blow Pollen Indoors & Aggravate Allergies
As the temperatures start dropping and the leaves begin to change and fall, pollen mixes in with the windy weather and makes allergy sufferers miserable. If you have lived in Las Vegas for very long you probably already know that it gets pretty windy here in the fall. That wind blows pollen all over the city. Let’s talk about the common pollen here in Las Vegas.
Ragweed & Grass Pollen Seasonal Allergies
The two most common pollen in the Las Vegas Valley are ragweed pollen and grass pollen. Ragweed pollen is one of the most common pollen that affect allergy sufferers in Las Vegas. Ragweed can’t stay alive during the colder months so the flowering plant begins to fade. Pollen from ragweed results in common hay fever symptoms such as itchy, water eyes, and a runny nose. During the fall grass goes dormant. When it goes dormant grass pollen can make people miserable. Grass pollen is typically at its highest levels around Thanksgiving.
How to Relieve Allergy Symptoms Fast
So if you have family members struggling from allergies related to ragweed or grass pollen what can you do about it? Pollen dispersal peaks in the morning hours between 5:00 and 10:00 am. If you can avoid being outside for long periods during those hours you will notice your allergy symptoms will decrease. You will want to avoid fields where ragweed grows whenever possible. If you do participate in outdoor activities you will want to make sure that you come right in and take a shower. Although it may be tempting to keep the windows of your home and car open because the temperature outside is fabulous, resist the urge! Keep those car and home windows closed to help your family members that suffer from allergies.
Air Duct Cleaning for Fall Allergies
Another thing you can do to help the allergy sufferers in your home is to have your air ducts cleaned in your home. The Indoor Air Quality Association reported that most people spend 90% of their time indoors. The more time that you spend indoors the more sensitive you become to indoor air pollutants. Dust, dust mites, bacteria, and microorganisms come into your home through your air ducts. These pollutants can cause health problems to those in your home. Having your air ducts cleaned will help bring relief to anyone in your home that suffers from these indoor allergens. Cleaning your air ducts not only helps with allergies, it also helps with chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, and lung disease.
