I was amazed to learn that our country gets a lot of dust from Saharan Africa by large gusts that float across the Atlantic Ocean in the atmosphere.
Sometimes I wonder if there’s so much construction happening in this county which inevitably digs into the Earth, releasing lots of dust and dirt in the process.
However, much of the commercial and retail development nearby was halted when inflation numbers peaked last summer. Gasoline and energy costs were some of the first rates to increase to historic levels, especially during June and July. With that in mind, it surely is the dust coming across the ocean that accounts for the allergens in the atmosphere in my state, while other issues like pollen and mold are localized. Mold levels get bad whenever there’s a lot of continual rain falling for weeks at a time without drying time in between rain showers to prevent fungus from exploding in the outdoor environment. Regardless of the allergen levels outdoors, I’m able to combat these problems with my air purifiers in my house. They all contain two filters—one HEPA filter and one charcoal filter. The HEPA filter is able to grab about 99% of all airborne particles, while the charcoal filter absorbs both odors and toxins like mold toxins. If you have allergy issues like mine that come and go all of the time, the best thing you can do for your indoor environment is to utilize air purifiers. You can even buy an air purification system for your central HVAC system, giving you central air purification instead of zone air purifiers like the ones that are sold at hardware stores and department stores.
