How to Prepare for Spring Allergies

April 15, 2018

Even though it may feel as though spring is still forever away in some parts of the country, it is coming, and with it will be an onslaught of allergies and troubles. From dander to dust mites to pollen, there are so many allergies moving throughout the air that we all need to be aware of and prepare for each year.

How can you prepare for spring allergies this year? Here are a few of our tips:

Air Filters for Fans

Fan air filters help to remove allergens and dust from your home. An air filter will trap the pollutants to give you cleaner air that will help keep you breathing happily. You can put air filters anywhere you go so that each room is clean, just make sure you get the right size.

Track Pollen Levels

Whether you watch the morning news or have an app to get updates, monitoring pollen levels can help you know when it will be okay to go outside and when you should stay indoors. While you cannot always plan your life around the pollen levels, you can make better decisions if you track them.

See an Allergist

If your allergies are bad enough to make you miss out on important moments of your life, you probably have a more serious problem that you will want to take care of as soon as possible. Seeing an allergist will give you advice and medication to handle seasonal allergies. They will also be able to tell you what in particular you are allergic to.

Keep Clean

One of the best things you can do for your home is to keep it clean. Dust, pollen, and any other issues that you might have are exasperated when they get into your home. Keep your home clean, especially any soft or fabric items. This is particularly important when it comes to your bedroom as your mattress and duvet hold a lot of dust!

Look Out for Mold

Mold is one of the biggest allergens in spring that many people overlook. With everything damp and starting to warm up, mold has a tendency to grow. You want to look in the areas of your home where mold is more likely to grow, like entryways, bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and basements.

Preparing for spring allergies is essential to ensure that it is a season that you can enjoy and absolutely love.
