Smart Strategies to Banish Allergies (Hint – Change your Air Conditioner Filter!)
For many people, spring is a happy time of year. The last of the winter weather has disappeared and each day brings us closer to summer temperatures. However, for those that suffer from allergies, spring can be a nightmare. Watery, itchy noses and eyes can cause serious distress, and many times taking refuge inside your home provides no relief. To keep allergies at bay, make sure to launder linens and dust regularly, shake out rugs and change your air conditioner filter.
Pollen and other allergens can get trapped in linens and clothes, so make sure to launder them often to get rid of the irritants. Wash your sheets weekly and change out your pillows for new ones regularly. Don’t forget to clean your curtains, lampshades and couches as these items tend to be ignored during cleaning routines and can hold a lot of dust and grime.
Dust Surfaces Regularly
Use a damp rag or mop to capture dust and allergens and keep your home irritant-free. Reducing the amount of clutter in your home will also reduce the amount of dust, as there will be fewer nooks and crannies for allergens to accumulate in.
Shake Out Rugs
Allergens can be brought into your home on the soles of shoes. Make sure you periodically get rid of dust and debris from your doormats and rugs by shaking them out outside. This will help keep dust, debris and other pollutants out of your home.
Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
To keep your home allergen-free, it’s extremely important to change your air filters regularly and ensure that you’re using the correct one for your cooling system. A clean air conditioner filter will help protect the air in your home from being contaminated with pollen, dander and other allergens.
To clean the air in your home, a filtration system can be installed. Air cleaners remove household dust, lint and other pollutants that pass through the return air ducts of your home comfort system, resulting in better indoor air quality.
