Allergen Prep Guide For 2020

With nicer weather on the way, what better time than now to prepare your house for the allergy season to come. Pollen and other factors can make the transition of seasons rough for allergy sufferers. Dust, dander, outdoor elements can be tracked in, lowering your air quality. However, by following this guide, you can ensure you reduce your chance of allergies all season long:

Clean and Vacuum Often
Spring can bring an increase in shedding and dust. The best way to combat them in your home is to stick to a cleaning list. De-cluttering your house can help reduce the chance of dust from collecting, too. For pet owners, you might want to invest in a heavy-duty vacuum, one that has a strong filter to capture their dust and dander.

Wash Your Sheets
Another common area for dust and dirt to hide is your sheets. Weekly washings are typically recommended to help catch allergens and reduce symptoms.

Don’t Leave Windows Open
The spring breeze may feel refreshing, but that extra gust gives pollen the perfect opportunity to sneak into your home. Try to limit how long you let the air in during the day and keep an eye out for high pollen days.

Replace Old Air Filters
Your HVAC air filters are what filters out allergens from the air. If not regularly changed or cleaned, they can become less effective, ultimately lowering your air quality. It will no longer be able to filter out the dust and debris like it once should, and those particles will now be pushed through your home. The same can go for your air ducts, and now is the perfect time to schedule a cleaning.
