Tampa, FL -- Pollen: It's on your house, on your doorstep, on your car, on your clothes, in the air, in your sinuses and in your home and workplace. When you stroll through your front door in the morning, does the yellow haze coating the porch send you leaping back into the house? Is the pollen on the bottom of your shoes is being brought inside each and every day. The mere word "pollen" can make you start to sniffle, sneeze and reach for the tissue to blow your nose.
Some studies suggest that these little fragments of misery have extreme inflammatory potential and can impair human respiratory and cardiovascular-related health. For example, a study in the Netherlands uncovered a strong association between day-today variations in pollen concentrations and deaths from cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and pneumonia.
Oak trees are the culprit in many places in the Southeast. The trees produce 3,000 to 6,000 pollen particles per cubic meter; it only takes 10 particles to trigger an allergic reaction. High winds in some areas also spread the misery.
In keeping with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) 1997 recommendations, it is desirable to identify and remove common allergens and modify the home or office to reduce the level of ubiquitous (common) allergens. Before one can remove allergens and/or pollutants effectively, it is essential to understand if they exist, what they are and in what quantity.
Two options consumers have are: Home Health Check a professional IAQ survey of your home or business by an industrial hygienist or the do-it-yourself IAQ Screen Check DIY product line and "Test Your Nest" Screen Check (TYNSC) which is designed to sample the indoor air quality of your home identifying chemicals, formaldehyde, pollens, and molds, among other allergens.
The kits are available from Building Health Check (http://www.indoorairtest.com), and at selected on-line retailers and distributors.
