Spring is officially here – and so are seasonal allergies.
Sacramento, the City of Trees, can be beautiful this time of the year, but also brings out the worst of these symptoms, especially in those who suffer from asthma.
The buildup of pollens, grasses, molds and other allergens can be at their highest levels in spring, which is bad news for all allergy sufferers.
Luckily, there are some solutions for those days when it seems the sneezing and itching will never end. Take a look at these easy-to-do tips that can help allergy-proof your home.
Check for Mold
When people think about allergies, they usually think about grasses and trees. Mold, however, can trigger allergy symptoms and other health problems. Because these spores of the fungus are inside the home, they can travel through the home’s air and duct system. This can put the entire family at risk. Be sure to inspect and make needed repairs to get rid of this risk factor.
Install Quality filters
The arrival of spring is a great time to remember to purchase high-quality air filters that will both clean the air circulating within your home and allow for an even flow of air. This filter is the first line of defense against those pesky allergens and dust.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Maintaining a well-oiled heating and air system is not only essential to keep you and your family comfortable throughout the seasons, but also to minimize the impact of allergens. A regular checkup and routine service will keep the HVAC system running up to standards while also cutting back on the amount of dust and allergens. A technician will also advise on how to reduce or even remove the sources of allergy-causing substances, such as dust, dander and other microbes.
Hopefully, these tips will be a sigh of relief during a time when allergies can be at their worst. And if you would like to schedule one of our technicians to come out to offer more tips, contact us today!
