Along with the gorgeous panoramic views of flaming foliage, the autumn brings allergies. If you suffer from allergies in the spring you are 75% more likely to suffer from allergies in the fall as well.
- Ragweed plants actually begin to release pollen during the long cool August nights and warm days. It often lasts well into the fall months.
- Mold is another fall allergy trigger, it grows in your basement, bathroom, laundry rooms, and any damp areas inside your home as well as outside. Mold spores also grow outdoors where there are wet areas, as in piled damp leaves. They are ideal breeding grounds. Mold spore are light, very small, and easily inhaled into the lungs.
- Dust mites, although common during the humid summer months, they can be introduced into the air when you turn your heat on in the fall.
