Those who are renters are more likely to deal with allergy symptoms than those who own a home, according to a study from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
The report found that of those with allergies, more than 90 percent of homeowners took measures to keep mold, pet dander and dust mites out of their bedrooms. However, fewer than one-third of renters mentioned the same things, which included keeping pets out of the room, which contribute to many of these issues.
"Allergy season lasts all year long for people who suffer from common household allergens," said Dr. James Sublett, an allergist and chairman of the ACAAI Indoor Environment Committee, according to HealthDay. "When environmental changes aren't made indoors, the home becomes a breeding ground for symptoms rather than a place to escape allergens."
Whether a person rents or owns a home, it is important that they have a solid healthcare policy, as this will help them better afford medical issues that come up. By comparing health insurance quotes, finding the right policy may be easier.
