People who suffer from allergies and asthma may get no relief from the sniffles even in their homes because of the presence of indoor allergens such as dust mite, mold growth, spores, and pet dander. Studies have found over fifty percent of homes have above six allergens that trigger symptoms of allergy. Log homes are affected by these allergens too, as they are usually air-borne and can be found on the wooden floor, furniture and surfaces of the house. Building a solid log home with weather tight construction is the first step in keeping allergens at bay. While it may not be possible to completely keep your log home allergen free, there are various ways of reducing the level of allergens present in your home, to make breathing easy.
