Richmond and Virginia Beach, Virginia – Spring Allergy Capitals

Did you know that our region in Virginia includes TWO of the Spring Allergy Capitals, as ranked by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America? Richmond ranks as the 22nd worst metropolitan region for spring seasonal allergies and Virginia Beach ranks as the 20th worst out of 100! The list factors in the area’s pollen score, average medicine utilization per patient and the ratio of Board Certified Allergists per patient. Red Cedar, Hackberry, Elm, Willow and Poplar are some of the offending allergens and are responsible for a good amount of that annoying yellow/green powder covering your car day and night, and making the very air you breathe a combatant against your health.

Most people who suffer from seasonal allergies will stay home to avoid exposure, but they don’t realize that the home environment can be just as dangerous. Dust mites, animal dander and even cockroaches are all common sources of indoor allergens that can compromise the health of your family.

Atlantic Spray Systems, Inc. has many recommendations to help limit your exposure and make your indoor environment more comfortable and safer for your entire family. We suggest having old fiberglass insulation vacuumed out carefully by a professional who will ensure that the process doesn’t actually make your home dirtier. We recommend conditioning your crawl space to prevent moisture exchange with the outside air supply and to help eliminate the presence of pests. And we highly recommend installing an air ventilation system that will expel the “bad” air from inside your house to the outdoors while returning perfectly humidified, clean air to the house. In particular, we are fans of the EZ Breathe Ventilation System. This energy efficient unit operates effectively to improve your home environment and the health of your family.
