How can allergies be prevented?

It is not always possible to prevent an allergy. However, if you do have an allergy, you should know what triggers it.

Common airborne triggers include:

  • grass
  • mould
  • tree pollen
  • pet dander
  • house dust mites

To help prevent allergies from the listed sources, you should follow these tips.

  • Control humidity levels.
  • Ban smoking in your home.
  • Repair basement, roof and pipe leaks as soon as you notice them.
  • Vacuum your floors and carpets regularly. A vacuum with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter is best for removing allergens.
