The combination of beaches, fields, and woodlands throughout Delaware and Maryland can create a number of different environments that impact people who suffer from airborne allergies. Although many people assume that the beach is allergy-free, studies have shown that allergens in the air can travel 400 miles out to sea and two miles into the air. Because allergens can be carried by the air, there’s no outside area where allergy sufferers can be sure they won’t experience symptoms of their allergies.
Springtime allergies are often connected to pollen spores from birch, cedar, pine, maple, and oak trees. In late spring through the summer, grass can cause a lot of allergy-related problems. Conversely, fall allergies are often caused by weeds. For a full list of allergens throughout the seasons, check out this list.
If you suffer from allergies, an air filtration will help filter allergens out of the air in your home. However, allowing outside air unfiltered into your house through open windows negates any benefits air filtering systems can provide. Instead, during high allergen days, use an air conditioner to cool your home rather than an open window and fans.
