You may have considered getting a pool enclosure or screened-in room before, but maybe you weren’t sure what the benefits were to you. As for pool enclosures, there are the “routine” benefits that we share with people like keeping insects and pests (like frogs) out of the pool. There is the benefit of keeping leaves and debris out of the pool which, quite frankly, is a HUGE benefit during hurricane season here. As for screened-in rooms, there are multiple benefits like enjoying the fresh air without getting bit by mosquitoes and having a shady area in the yard on a warm day.
But, there are actually more benefits to our screened rooms than you may have realized which is why we think you might want to get a screened room “for the health of it!” It seems like if you are around a group of children these days, one or more of them will have some type of allergy. Is it true that allergies are on the rise or have we just become more paranoid? According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of food allergy in children increased by 50 percent between the years 1997 and 2011 and the increase of peanut or tree nut allergies appears to have more than tripled in children in the United States between the years 1997 and 2008. Well, it’s not just our imagination, and we aren’t just paranoid. Allergies are on the rise. Researchers have a few theories as to why this is the case, but they still don’t have a definitive answer.
A screened room obviously cannot protect your children from food allergies, but it can help protect them or anyone else in your family who may be allergic to bee or wasp stings. This allergy, like severe food allergies, can lead to anaphylaxis which if not treated in a VERY timely manner, can lead to death. It’s important to know that if you show any kind of adverse (greater than normal) reaction to a sting, that each subsequent sting could cause a more severe reaction. People that suffer from these allergies would often like to relax outdoors but may be afraid of the increased number of stinging insects that are around in the spring and summer. A screened porch or patio may be the perfect solution for them.
Perhaps you are reading this and thinking, “Wow, I never thought of that! My daughter would love to read or color outside without fear of being stung.” Or, maybe you’re thinking, “We would love to eat outside on nice evenings, but have always worried about the bees that are in our backyard this time of year.” If this is you, then it’s time to call us at Tripod Aluminum.
