Fighting Spring Allergies

Springtime is a beautiful time of year. The flowers are blooming, baby animals are being born and outdoor activities are in full swing!

If you suffer from spring allergies, this time of year may not be your favorite.  There are some things you can do to keep spring allergies under control.

Tame Pollen
Wash bedding every week in hot water.  Shower and wash your hair before bed, since pollen can accumulate on the body and in the hair.

Clean Surfaces
Vacuum at least twice a week. Keep surfaces clean and dust free. Wear a mask and gloves while cleaning to minimize your exposure.

Wash Rugs
Limit your use of throw rugs, but be sure to wash the ones you have frequently.

Use Filters
Keep filters on air conditioning and vents clean. Change as necessary.

Keep Windows Closed
This will reduce allergens from coming inside.

Monitor Humidity
Keep the humidity in your house below 50% to prevent mold growth.

Wood and Tile
If it is time to replace flooring, considering eliminating carpet.
