With the official start of summer just days away, temperatures are on the rise nationwide, and more of us are spending more of our time outside. If you’re allergy-prone, this is the toughest part of the year for you with pollen and other spring allergens are everywhere. Unfortunately, they are not going anywhere anytime soon.
Spring allergens can easily invade your house and make the indoors just as bad as the outdoors but you can take some steps to make sure that doesn’t happen.
First thing you’ll want to focus on is how you enter the house, as you’ll likely bring the allergens in from outside. If you don’t have an outdoor mat, buy one—allergens travel on our shoes and should be stomped out before you enter the household. Another method is leaving your shoes outside, or near the door; that way, the allergens are contained to a specific area. Vacuum when you can which can help pick-up and absorb allergens. Make sure that any rugs that haven’t been cleaned in a while are left outside or professionally cleaned on a regular basis.
Now, let’s talk about circulation. At Superior Air Duct Cleaning, we tell all of our customers to have a humidifier or air purifier on hand, even if it’s not allergy season. These devices are integral to ensuring the air you’re breathing is the cleanest it can possibly be. In addition, it’s worth starting the season off with one of our full air duct inspection and cleaning services; that way, any allergies from outside or from the winter that have built up over time are taken care of, before it becomes a problem.
With these measures in place, you can prevent allergy attacks in the comfort of your own home. And cleaner, purer air is always something you should aspire to, anyway. If you are looking for other ways to make sure the air in your home is clean, consider utilizing the services at Superior Air Duct Cleaning.
