How to Relieve Your Spring Allergies Without Medication

SpringAllergyRelief

Many people look forward to spring due to the warm temperatures and blooming flowers, but for those of us who suffer from allergies, this season is a nightmare. Fortunately, relief is available, and it doesn’t have to come from a pharmacy. Use these five tips to minimize your allergy symptoms this spring.

Limit your exposure to pollen.

Pollen is the most common trigger for people with seasonal allergies. Pay attention to your city’s pollen count in the morning, and avoid going outside during peak hours. Use the air conditioner in your house and car to prevent pollen from entering through open windows.

Dust and vacuum regularly.

Your carpeting could be harboring all kinds of allergens such as pollen, dust mites, and animal dander. Dust your house and vacuum your carpets regularly, and implement a strict “no shoes” policy for your family and guests.

Wear sunglasses outside.

Sunglasses aren’t just for looking cool – they can actually provide allergy relief, too. Sporting a pair of shades can block pollen from coming in contact with your eyes, which reduces itchiness and irritation in both your eyes and nose.

Change your air filters.

Your cooling system has an air filter designed to trap airborne particles before they can enter your home. In order for the filter to work, it needs to be periodically cleaned or replaced. Refer to your owner’s manual for instructions specific to your unit.

Clean your air ducts.

The air ducts in your home could be harboring all types of pollutants such as dust, mold, pollen, and chemicals from cigarette smoke. Even worse, these particles can use your ductwork as a transportation system to spread throughout your entire home.

Surprising Sources of Indoor Air Pollution

Indoor air pollution is a problem in most of our homes – about 96% of them to be exact according to the EPA. One of the biggest reasons for indoor air pollution is the lack of awareness about it. Americans don’t know that it is an issue, and don’t understand that everyday products can cause it.

Here are a few of the most surprising sources of indoor air pollution.

  • Cleaning Products. Those store-bought cleaning products under your sink are full of harmful chemicals – even the ones labeled “all natural”. Replace these commercial cleaners with real natural ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, lemon, and salt.

  • Carpets. Even if you vacuum regularly, your carpet could be harboring all kinds of pollutants. Common ones include dust mites and pet dander, but pesticides can also be tracked into your home if you wear your shoes indoors. New carpets are just as dangerous; many of them emit formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical used during the manufacturing process.

  • Air Fresheners. Air fresheners may have the most misleading name out of any consumer product in the world. They don’t freshen your air at all, they just mask it with chemicals and toxins. If you are looking for a quick, powerful way to eliminate toilet odors, just light a match.

  • Paints. Lead paint has been outlawed for decades, but it’s still present in older homes across the country. As this paint begins to chip and peel, lead particles are released into the air where they can be inhaled. Even newer paints emit toxins as they dry – next time you buy paint, make sure it is low-VOC.

  • HVAC Ducts. Did you know that the average three-bedroom home generates more than 40 pounds of dust every year? Much of this dust accumulates in your air ducts, where it can circulate through your whole house and trigger allergic reactions. Other pollutants known to hide in air ducts include mold, pet dander, cigarette smoke, and rodent droppings.

When was the last time you looked at the air ducts in your home? Experts recommended having them professionally cleaned every 3-5 years. If you live in Pueblo County, Colorado, look no further than Patterson Plumbing & Heating for your duct cleaning needs. Contact us online or give us a call at (719) 544-4922 to get started.
