Simply shutting yourself off from the outside world isn’t a cure all for allergies. The key? Work to rid the allergens from your home as well.
This Wellness Wednesday we wanted to provide some tips for easing your allergies at home – and how we can help:
Stay squeaky clean – Pollen sticks to everything. Showering, washing your hair, and changing your clothes can help if you’ve been outdoors with excessive pollen.
Sleep often – Not only does it relieve stress, but it also helps your body heal from fighting off allergy symptoms during the season.
Beware of the breeze – Easing up on your dryer usage now that it’s nice enough to hang clothes outdoors? Be careful! This can actually bring allergens inside. Be sure to wash bed linens in hot water and use the dryer to kill dust mites.
Filter it out – Use the air conditioner during warm, humid months to filter out 99% of pollen and allergen-producing fabrics in your home.
TLC for the AC – Remember not to take your AC for granted – it needs some TLC too! Changing the filter monthly and cleaning your air ducts annually is the best way improve your air quality and HVAC performance.
Use this allergy season as a reminder to schedule an air duct cleaning service with us. We’ll give your air duct system a full inspection to determine the level of contamination and follow a precise process for maximum cleaning results. We’re here to help you improve your home comfort!
