Fall Allergies and Outdoor & Indoor Allergens

Here’s a interesting article From PRLog

PRLog  Sep. 21, 2014  PHOENIX  Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video.  Their newest production discusses fall allergies and allergens that can be found both outdoors and indoors.

Fall is ragweed season which triggers allergies in millions of people. Ragweed is considered to be the most significant allergy trigger in fall, although there are other plants that also release pollen during this time of year.  Depending on where a person lives, ragweed pollen may be present from August through November.  Mold is another common outdoor allergen during the fall as piles of damp leaves or other organic material make for an ideal place for mold to grow.

“Both pollen and mold spores can travel great distances in the outdoor air,” said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network. “This can be especially true during windy fall days.  For those who experience allergies all year long, they should also consider possible indoor allergens that they may be exposed to on a regular basis.  Common indoor contaminants include mold, dust mites, pet dander, latex, insect and rodent allergens.  We hope this new video helps to shed some light on this topic.”

This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that help to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental, ProcessMAP and Healthy Indoors magazine to name a few.
