As spring blooms and temperatures rise, many people welcome the season with open arms. However, spring can bring a host of uncomfortable symptoms for allergy sufferers due to increased pollen and other allergens in the air. While we can't control outdoor allergens, there are steps we can take to reduce indoor allergens and create a more comfortable living environment. In this blog post, we'll explore some allergen-busting tips to help you breathe easier this spring.

1. Keep Your Home Clean:

Regular cleaning is vital in reducing indoor allergens. Vacuum carpets and rugs frequently use a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA filter to trap allergens effectively. Dust surfaces with a damp cloth to prevent allergens from becoming airborne. Remember to wash bedding and curtains regularly in hot water to remove allergens.

2. Control Humidity Levels:

Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent the growth of mold and dust mites, two common indoor allergens. A dehumidifier should keep humidity levels between 30-50%, and the water reservoir should be emptied regularly to prevent mold growth. Additionally, promptly fix any leaks or water damage to prevent mold from spreading.

3. Invest in Air Purifiers:

Air purifiers with HEPA filters can capture airborne allergens such as pollen, pet dander, and dust mites, providing cleaner indoor air for allergy sufferers. For maximum effectiveness, air purifiers should be placed in bedrooms and other frequently used areas.

4. Keep Outdoor Allergens Out:

Close windows and doors to prevent outdoor allergens from entering your home, especially on high-pollen days. Consider using allergen-proof covers on pillows and mattresses to protect against dust mites and allergens.

5. Maintain Your HVAC System:

Regular maintenance of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is essential for reducing indoor allergens. Replace air filters according to manufacturer recommendations and schedule annual HVAC inspections to ensure proper functioning and air quality.

Implementing these allergen-busting tips can help you create a healthier indoor environment and reduce allergy symptoms during the spring season. Remember to consult with an allergist if you have severe allergies or asthma symptoms that require medical treatment. Here's to a happier and healthier spring season!

Here's the scoop:

Go weekly and you are cleaned four times in most months. But when a month stretches to five weeks, that fifth one on us.

Bi-weekly?  Enjoy two sessions per month typically. Sneaky three-week months? No worries, the third one is our treat.

If you are on the schedule every 4 weeks, revel in one pristine performance eleven out of twelve months but the one where there's two cleanings, the second one is complimentary.
