Spring brings rain, warmer weather, and increased Kleenex usage.
While we’re all fans of consistently warmer weather a lot of us struggle with allergies that flare up during this time of year. Thankfully there are a variety of medicines to alleviate some of the pains and annoyances that come from allergies.
But what else can we do to help keep allergens away, specifically in our homes? Luckily there are a lot of things we can do many of which only require a little bit of time.
Resources on Reducing Indoor Allergens
There are a ton of resources and articles on ways to reduce, and hopefully eliminate, allergens in your home. We’ve gathered up the best tips and practices and listed them below. Feel free to bookmark this page so you can come back to it as needed.
Solutions to Control Allergens in Your Home
In addition to all the ways listed above here are three Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) solutions we offer to help eliminate allergens and reduce the effect they have on those in your home.
1. Media Air Filter
These filters are a major upgrade to the standard one-inch filter in most furnaces. They capture more airborne irritants and ones much smaller that the one-inch filter has no chance of capturing.
Bonus: Media filters also don’t need to be replaced as often as one-inch filter.
2. UV Light Air Purifier
UV Lights are installed right into your existing duct work and neutralize pollutants from not only bacteria or mold but also carpets, and wood floors.
Bonus: UV light air purifiers also can eliminate pesky odors in your home too.
3. Duct Cleaning
Dust, debris, and even Tonka Trucks (yay for kids) build up in your duct work after a while. If you’ve never had your duct work professionally cleaned, this service could be a life saver for those who are allergy sensitive.
Bonus: A duct cleaning will also extend the live of the furnace air filter.
