Hi there folks, we just came across a very interesting (& timely) article all about “Winter Allergies”.
As we get into the chilly season, we often look forward to some relief in getting away from the dreaded “allergy season”, but apparently it’s not quite that straightforward. Yes, I’ve even noticed a few allergy flare-ups myself lately that seemed a bit out of the ordinary, but according to VeryWellHealth.com this isn’t as uncommon as we might think.
This great article notes that both indoor and outdoor allergies can be problems for us allergy-sufferers during these colder months. As you can imagine we do spend a lot more time indoors during Winter - often with our doors and windows closed. So it’s more important than ever to be paying special attention to the allergy-triggers (including dust, mould, pests and pet dander) in our indoor air during this time.
Author, Daniel More, MD, notes that “Most indoor allergy triggers aren't unique to wintertime. You probably encounter them to some degree all year, but several aspects of winter may make them worse. [Such as] You likely spend more time inside when it's cold. [And] The windows are probably closed a lot more.”
As a solution, he goes on to explain “The best way to deal with winter allergies is by preventing contact with things you're allergic to. You may not be able to avoid them entirely, but you can take steps to reduce the amount of contact.”
This tells us that now more than ever is a great time to be using your award-winning Winix Air Purifiers to be keeping our indoor air as clean of those nasty allergy-triggers as possible. We have ours running 24/7 at the moment and would highly recommend the same for all of our other allergy-suffering friends out there!
