Spring is in the air, and the dreaded allergy season comes with it. For many people, this time of year is marked by sneezing, congestion, and feeling unwell. While you can't necessarily avoid allergens altogether, there are some things you can do to limit their impact on your home. This blog post will discuss ways to keep allergens out of your house and improve your quality of life during allergy season!

1. Use an Air Purifier

Air purifiers help reduce the amount of pollen and other allergens in the air, especially when the windows are open. With options ranging from whole-house purifiers to smaller tabletop units, there's a perfect choice for every home that will improve your indoor air quality!

2. Keep Windows and Doors Closed

Avoid letting the outside air into your home by shutting your windows and doors during this time of year. This will keep pollen, dust, and other allergens to a minimum.

3. Keep Your Home Clean

Cleaning is a must during allergy season. Make sure you keep up with your regular chores, including vacuuming carpets, mopping floors, and dusting surfaces regularly to reduce the amount of pollen and other allergens in your home. Additionally, regularly change your HVAC system's air filters at least once every three months for a clean, fresh start.

4. Schedule an HVAC Tune-Up

If you haven't had your HVAC system serviced in a while, springtime is a great time to do so. A professional tune-up can help ensure your system is working correctly, thoroughly cleaned, and prepared for the air conditioning season ahead!
