Title California Company Offers Testing Solutions for Residents Suffering from Indoor Allergens
Introduction LA Testing provides laboratory services to help allergy suffers identify indoor contaminants that may be causing or exacerbating their allergies.


Garden Grove, CA, May 21, 2013

With summer just around the corner, many California residents have already begun relying on their air conditioning to keep their homes cool and comfortable. For those who suffer from indoor allergies, air conditioned homes with closed windows and doors, can under certain circumstances cause issues due to elevated levels of indoor allergens.

Indoor and outdoor allergies often produce nearly identical symptoms. These may include sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, fatigue and headaches. There are however, differences in where and when the allergies occur. To complicate matters further, many people are allergic to more than one allergen so they could in fact have triggers to both indoor and outdoor allergens.

Indoor allergies are often more common during the winter and summer seasons when people are indoors more frequently. Some of the most common indoor allergens include mold, dust mites, pet dander and exposure to cockroaches and rodents.

“For people who suffer from indoor allergies, it’s important to know what allergens are present that may be triggering their condition so they can take steps to eliminate or minimize exposure to it,” reported Michael Chapman, Laboratory Manager of LA Testing’s Garden Grove facility. “LA Testing offers sampling supplies and indoor allergen analysis so that people can determine if these allergens are present in their homes, schools or places of business.”

LA Testing has sponsored an educational video about indoor and outdoor allergies. It can be seen at:
