Common Allergies In Mississippi

Here in Mississippi, we’re known as ‘The Magnolia State’ in honor of the Magnolia trees that dot our grand land and their blossoms that have become our state flower. While undeniably beautiful, our Magnolia trees are just one of many pollen-producing species that contribute to the list of common allergens that plague our homes year after year.

While the professionals here at Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning might not have a cure for your seasonal allergies, we’re proud to be knowledgeable about everything that causes them — and it’s our mission to extend that information to our customers so they can have the most control possible over the IAQ testing and services that affect their lives.

Knowledge is power, and knowing the sources of your allergies is key in reducing their sneezy effects. To help out, we’ve put together this short run-down of the most common allergens giving us the sniffles here in The Magnolia State.

3 Most Common Contributors To Allergies In Meridian


One of the biggest contributors to seasonal allergies, pollen is a powder substance that most flowering plants produce as a function of reproduction. Designed by nature to stick to things and be easily carried in the air, pollen also has the unfortunate tendency to cause allergic reactions in many people.

Pollen allergies can get especially bad during the end of fall into early spring as flowering plants bloom.


Mold inside the home is also another common contributor to allergies — seasonal and otherwise. Mold is a fuzzy fungal growth that can appear in a variety of colors and much like the pollen of flowering plants, utilizes spores that float easily in the air to spread and reproduce.

Breathing in these spores can not only affect your allergies but can also have other negative impacts on your lungs and overall health.

Unfortunately, mold likes to grow and exist in cold, damp places that are, by nature, out of the way and hard to reach. Places like under your sink or near hard-to-locate leaks are common for mold growth or, in some of the worst cases, it can infiltrate your HVAC system’s ductwork.

That’s why it’s important to be diligent about checking for things like leaks and areas where moisture can accumulate. In the case of your ductwork, it’s important to have a professional ductwork cleaning done at least once every 3 to 5 years to keep them performing at peak capacity.

Pet Dander

Unfortunately, our furry friends are one of the most significant contributors to allergies — not only here in Mississippi, but everywhere. Pet fur, dander and associated oils are easily spread throughout the home and contribute to allergies.

The easiest way to combat this is with regular brushing and grooming. While it’s impossible to eliminate all of the less-than-desirable traces of our pets, we can do our best to reduce them and prevent them from being shed inside of our homes.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Highly Recommend Using Heblon

My AC wouldn’t turn on so I called Heblon . It was a Sunday and from calling the office to the engineer arriving took about 45 minutes. The engineer was professional and gave me excellent feedback on the issue. Repaired within 45 minutes and couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend using Heblon, and will definitely be using them from now on.

Good Overall Experience

Both technicians were respectful and courteous. They went above and beyond to explain issues with my unit that would require work in the future. They offered assistance with out a pushy sales pitch. Good overall experience.

I Wouldn’t Trust Anyone Else but Heblon

Jerry is part of the family now. He is always professional, knowledgeable, and able to fix the problem. I really appreciate the great customer service I get from the time I call the office, the prompt response, the timely arrivals, the updates via text message, and the follow up after the job is complete. I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Heblon. My family is grateful for them.
