Didn’t you read a similar article last year claiming “The Worst Allergy Season”? Don’t think too hard about it – You probably did.
Every year, pollen season is getting gradually worse than the previous year. In fact, according to allergy experts, pollen counts are expected to be even double what are now in about thirty-five years, which is a terrifying thought to imagine. People who suffer from bad allergies will do anything to find relief whether through over-the-counter drugs, face masks, or allergy shots. But we have a solution that our allergen sufferers probably haven’t yet considered – soundproof windows. If you’ve tried everything to reduce your constant sneezing, itchy eyes, and runny nose, add soundproof windows next on your list of relief initiatives this allergy season. You’ll be glad you did.
The Pollen Take Over In New York
New Yorkers really got the short end of the stick when it comes to pollen season. Our NYC allergists are seeing pollen symptoms start earlier, last longer, and have a more severe impact on those that suffer from allergies, around 30% of all adults in the United States.
In New York, the pollen season begins in spring with the blooming of trees and grasses that release their pollen March until late June. The pollen then returns in August when ragweed starts growing. This only means a longer allergy season and more suffering for our New York residents. Our state is home to two cities that rank in the top ten worst cities for spring allergies – Buffalo and Syracruse. In fact, Syracruse ranks number three in the list of the U.S.’s worst cities for pollen with its abundance of oak and elm trees.
One of the main factors that contribute to an increased pollen count is the effect of climate change. As global warming continues to increase, more carbon dioxide is released as a result of longer growing seasons. Layer that on top of New York’s most recent rainy winter season, and we have perfect conditions for rich plant growth and pollen production.
Soundproof Windows This Allergy Season
If you’ve had mild allergies in the past, now is definitely the time to prepare your home as the pollen count grows more and more over the next few years.
