(HealthNewsDigest.com)-The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology has some advice for the millions of Americans for whom "allergy season" never ends: Reducing the dust in your home can make a big difference. Most indoor environments, it says, actually trap airborne allergens, where they can pose a risk to respiratory health.

If you suspect indoor allergies are causing your symptoms, see your doctor. You can limit your exposure.

Tiny Particles=Big Problem

House dust is present in even the cleanest homes. It's stirred up whenever you vacuum, walk on a carpet or make the bed. In addition, forced-air heating systems tend to blow dust into the air.

A Solution

Fortunately, frequently washing your linens and cleaning air ducts can go a long way toward reducing the amount of allergens in the air.

To help, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends that air-handler units be inspected at least annually and cleaned as needed. When hiring an HVAC inspection, maintenance and restoration contractor, be sure the company is a member of NADCA.
