Spring is Coming! Tips to Keep Your Home Allergen-Free Homeowner Tips McCrea May 27 2020 Spring is often a beautiful season: budding flowers, small animals emerging into the sunlight, longer days, and warmer weather all sweep away the dark days of winter. Unfortunately, this season isn’t always full of sunshine and happiness; if the word “spring” conjures up an image of constant sneezing, itchy eyes, and a runny nose, worry not. We’re here to help you with some great anti-allergy tips. Air Purification and HVAC Tips for Allergies Be proactive Prevent the worst of allergy season by starting allergy medication as soon as you feel symptoms coming on, or even right before the season starts so that you’re already protected. Taking antihistamines or trying a nasal spray should help knock out your allergies before they become too difficult to manage. Clean or replace your AC system filter. We recommend checking your filter once every month to make sure it’s working properly. Once your filter becomes clogged with dust and allergens, those irritants will be circulating throughout your home, causing allergy chaos. Be sure to prevent this by cleaning or replacing your filter regularly. Prepare your home for allergy season. Keep pollen out by shutting your windows, cleaning your air ducts, and limiting how much of the outside world you bring indoors – for example, by taking your shoes off when you come inside. Keep your home clean and safe with an air purification system. Just because you’re a proud pet owner and indoor gardener doesn’t mean pollen and dandruff should take over your life. An air purifier will help reduce dust, pollen, odors, and dander in your home.
