Unpredictable summer monsoons, potential for drought, and the thunderstorms that follow can threaten dust storms—lasting anywhere from a few days to several months—and air quality issues. Breathing in dust over a longer period of time can cause you to experience coughing, wheezing, runny nose, chronic breathing problems, and even lung issues. And, if you're an asthma sufferer, dust storms can become a serious health threat. Not only can dust storms harm your air, but they can also damage crops, impact livestock, cause erosion, and contribute to accidents.
"Dust Storms are most often found in the summertime, but they are not limited to just the hotter months of the year. If the conditions are right, a nasty windstorm picking up dirt and tiny particles can sweep through your town in any season." – AccuWeather
In the event of a spontaneous dust storm, an AprilAire air purifier will help clear the air and filter out contaminants, so you can breathe easily indoors. Likewise, an AprilAire humidifier will bring moisture back into the air, eliminating the dry, stagnant air that enters in from the outdoors. As always, it's best to keep your home's humidity between 40-60% to reduce the potential for health concerns. Find a Healthy Air Professional in the Southwest today.
