Recently I moved into a new apartment, and have had pretty bad allergies since. I wake up with allergies that last a few hours and then go away around lunch time, but the allergies return at night.
Before moving into this apartment, I never really had allergies.
I figured it was the carpet since I read brand new carpet can leave chemicals in the air, so I bought a vacuum and have since vacuumed the entire apartment several times. I also had the apartment management hire a professional deep carpet cleaner person come out and clean the carpets. Still the allergies are pretty bad.
I bought a Winix air purifier that works really well though. The only downside is, it only purifies the room it is in and not the entire apartment. When I move it from one room to another, the air quality detector on the air purifier usually turns orange/red which means the air quality is poor. The air purifier automatically goes to the high setting in this case which moves a lot of air and cleans it fast, but again it does not clean the whole apartment air.
All the windows are sealed off using a plastic window film kit to save energy if it makes a difference.
You can literally feel the air quality not as good in a room where the air purifier has not been for a while. I am really trying to beat these allergies, but need new suggestions on what could be causing it.
