Who doesn't love the crisp, cool Mountain air in Haywood County, NC. Friday Night High School football teams tearing up the gridiron. Staring up at the stars from Waterrock Knob on a clear night. Leaf-looking drives through the Smoky Mountains. Most of us would say "We Love It!". Fall is the favorite time of year for many that call Western North Carolina home and those that call it their home away from home. That crisp, cool air also tends to push us towards the indoors more. So for those suffering from Indoor Allergies, it can be quite a challenge. Yep, I said it, INDOOR Allergies. It isn't just that lovely ragweed that makes you sneeze this time of year.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Indoor air is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Everything from dust mites to pet hair. Attached is a tip sheet from Buffini and Company with ways to reduce the allergens in your home. So the next time you spend a gorgeous fall day road-tripping through Maggie Valley and the Blue Ridge Parkway, you can return home to a wonderful cup of hot apple cider and no sneezing.
