Spring Allergies? Learn How to Stop the Sniffles and Sneezes in Their Tracks.

woman with seasonal allergiesNow that the spring season has arrived, many people are looking forward to warmer days ahead. The higher temperatures and sunny days help the flowers blossom and the trees bud and that can make our springtime landscape beautiful. But for those of us who suffer from seasonal allergies, the blooming flowers and trees can also mean sniffles and sneezes.

While there isn’t much you can do to stop the pollen and other allergens from being in the air you breathe outdoors, there are some measures you can take inside to help mitigate their effects indoors. In this article, we’ll share some practical tips on how you can keep allergens at bay and tell you about some great indoor air quality products that can help.

5 Tips to Keep Allergens Out of Your Home

Spring allergies can be quite bothersome, but there are steps you can take to minimize allergens in your home. Learn more about how you can keep those pesky spring allergens at bay:

  1. Close Your Windows: As tempting as it is to let in the fresh spring air, keeping your windows closed helps prevent pollen from entering your home. Opt for using an air conditioner instead of a fan, which can draw in outdoor air.
  2. Choose the Right HVAC Filter: Make sure your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system has a good-quality filter. Regularly change the filter to ensure it effectively traps allergens like pollen and dust.
  3. Spring Cleaning: Regular cleaning can significantly reduce indoor allergens. Vacuum your home frequently using a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA filter. Launder clothes promptly to remove any pollen that might have hitchhiked inside.
  4. Keep Your Pets Clean: Our furry friends can carry pollen indoors on their fur. Regular grooming and wiping down your pets with a damp washcloth can help minimize allergen transfer.
  5. Shower After Being Outside: When you come home, take a quick shower and change your clothes. This helps remove any pollen clinging to your skin and hair.

Remember, these steps can make a difference in managing spring allergies and creating a more comfortable living environment.
