Testing for allergens in your home or office

Have you ever tested your air quality?
Are you trying to determine if environmental contaminants are triggering allergies or asthma attacks?

Anyone who has ever had, or witnessed, an allergic reaction knows it can be scary. As one of the most common chronic diseases, allergies occur when our immune systems recognize a substance as harmful and overreact, producing an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE) which can trigger allergy or asthma attacks. Common allergens that the yogi tests for are:

  • Mold/mildew – allergies that occur over several seasons may be triggered by mold or other fungi spores within your indoor environment
  • Pet dander – we love our pets, but their dander can cause allergies and asthma to flare. In the U.S. that equates to around 3 out of 10 people experiencing allergic reactions to cats and dogs (cat allergies outweigh dog allergies around twofold)
  • Household insects – the exoskeletons and waste of both cockroaches and dust mites can cause allergic reactions and trigger asthma symptoms and attacks
  • Trees/weeds/grasses – a pollen allergy is often referred to as “hay fever” or “seasonal allergic rhinitis.” Common allergy triggers in this category include ryegrass, ragweed, sagebrush, pigweed, tumbleweed, birch, cedar, oak, maple and elm.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found that indoor air can contain up to 100 times more pollutants than outdoor air, making indoor air quality a real health concern. To determine if basic allergens are present in the household air you’re breathing, choose the yogi.
