Humidity & Allergens Eliminated in Fairfax, Alexandria & Arlington, VA
Allergens are caused by microorganisms that distress the lungs or skin. A lot of sensitive people know that when their allergies or asthmas are triggered, they experience numerous kinds of symptoms which often include:
- Watery eyes
- Excessive scratching or the urge to itch
- Having a hard time breathing
- Runny or clogged nose
- Hay fever
The immediate remedy is, of course, to take the appropriate medication and wait until the symptoms subside. However, this method can only temporarily reduce the stress the person is facing because often the causes of these allergy attacks are still lingering within your home.
