Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a substance not native to your body. When allergen particles reach the lining of your eyes, nose, or airway, they can trigger an allergic reaction.
While outdoor allergens like pollen and mold are common sources of allergic reactions, indoor pollutants can be just as problematic. Allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, and cockroaches can impact indoor air quality and cause asthma and allergy attacks. Airborne allergy testing from Proper Environmental in St. Louis can help protect you.

When you choose Proper Environmental for your indoor airborne allergy testing, an expert technician will collect a sample from four separate areas within one square meter of your home or business. The sample will then transfer to a local lab specializing in indoor air quality, where it undergoes 72-hour testing for cat and dog dander, dust mite antigens, and cockroach particles.
There are many types of indoor allergens, but one of the most common is dust – or dust mites. Dust mites are in most homes, hiding in cloth materials such as upholstered furniture, beds, bedding, and more. Those with dust sensitivity react to dust mites and the waste particles they leave behind rather than the dust itself.
Pet dander is another common indoor allergen. Both cats and dogs shed dead skin flakes or fur, similar to how a human sheds dandruff. Pet dander mixes with household dust or settles on clothing, furniture, and other items when airborne.
Contrary to popular belief, cockroaches are more than annoying pests – they are an indoor airborne allergy trigger. When cockroaches shed body parts or leave behind feces or saliva, they can cause allergy flare-ups or asthma attacks. These allergens act similarly to dust mites, aggravating your symptoms as they enter the air.
Allergens affect people differently, but those most sensitive to them experience various symptoms, such as the following:
