Spring is Allergy Season
Spring is allergy season. While many people seek medical assistance in dealing with allergy symptoms, simply maintaining good indoor air quality in your home is a key to reducing the impact of airborne pollutants that produce respiratory discomfort. We have many ways you can improve your health. Here are some tips for improving the indoor air quality of your home:
Install a whole-home air purification / filtration system in tandem with your heating and cooling systems.
Thoroughly clean and disinfect all surfaces in the home, including floors, carpeting and upholstered furniture which can retain allergens even after vacuuming.
Purchase a high-quality vacuum cleaner. This can make a world of difference in keeping dust, pollen and mites at bay.
The U.S. Department of Environmental Protection recommends keeping indoor humidity levels below 50 percent to reduce the effects of airborne allergens. Homes with evaporative cooling during the Monsoon season see indoor humidity in excess of 70%, which causes airborne and surface allergens to flourish. Consider using Air Conditioning especially during these times.
Change or clean air conditioning and heating filters frequently, and perform recommended maintenance on your system.
