The Challenges and Impacts of Seasonal Allergens in California

If you're a California resident, you're no stranger to the state's beautiful biodiversity. However, this diverse flora can trigger seasonal allergies, impacting your health and quality of life. Understanding the sources of these allergens and how to combat them is crucial.


Sources of Seasonal Allergens

The Causes of Seasonal Allergies in California

Seasonal allergies in California stem from various sources. In the spring, trees like oaks, pines, and cedars disperse pollen, triggering allergic reactions. During the summer, pollen from grass and weeds becomes the primary allergen. As fall approaches, the release of pollen from ragweed turns it into a common source of allergies.

The Impacts of Air Pollution on Seasonal Allergens

Air pollution, a significant issue in California cities, exacerbates these allergies. Pollutants can latch onto pollen grains, increasing their allergenic potential. They can also irritate the respiratory tract, making you more susceptible to allergens. Seasonal allergens can cause a range of symptoms, from mild discomfort like sneezing and itching to severe reactions like difficulty breathing. These symptoms can disrupt sleep, decrease productivity, and lower your quality of life..

Effective Strategies for Enhancing Indoor Air Quality

Given the prevalence of seasonal allergens outdoors, maintaining good indoor air quality is vital. This can provide relief from allergens and minimize your overall exposure, reducing the risk of developing allergies. Several strategies can enhance indoor air quality. Regular cleaning can remove allergens from surfaces, and air purifiers can filter allergens from the air. Humidity control is also beneficial, as many allergens thrive in moist conditions.

From Airthings customers

“I have had this unit (View Plus) for almost 2 years now, I will buy another. It literally saved my life! If you work from home, like I do, then you need this unit or something like it. I had Radon levels above 7pCi/L and had been living with it without knowing it, for almost 3 years. I hope this helps anyone looking to decide on this purchase. It has been an absolute godsend to have in our home and I didn't even get into some of the other things it helped me solve that had been plaguing us.”


“This is my second Airthings monitor (View Radon). I was so impressed with the first one, I knew I wanted a second! Even the technician who installed my radiation mitigation system said these devices are excellent for homeowner use. Right out of the box, it is easy to set up with their very helpful instructions and app. Once set up, it will baseline the air quality and provide you trending data to see how it changes. Helpful information is available through the app which tells you how to improve air quality and what you might be concerned with. Highly recommend it!”


“This is a great product (View Radon) which I can leave in my basement and forget about it. It's constantly plugged in with the supplied USB cable. I can see the reading on the unit and on the app anytime.”


“Very accurate & a life saver. We didn't know we had high radon levels until we got this monitor (Corentium Home). We have since had a radon test to backup the monitor & a mitigation fan to eliminate the radon. The monitor now reads acceptable levels & we have peace of mind. I would definitely recommend this if you are having doubts about radon levels in your home.”


“Move into a new home with HIGH radon reading. Bought this (Corentium Home) for surveillance after remediation. Numbers came back the same as professional's equipment. Feeling comfortable that my home is safe for my family.”
