4 Ways to Keep Spring Allergens Out of Your Home & Life

Love spring but dread the allergies that come along with it? You’re not alone! Spring in the Southside and Gadsden area can mean an abundance of pollen polluting our air, which can cause coughing, sneezing, congestion, itchy eyes, and even asthma attacks. Whether you feel only mild symptoms, or severely suffer from allergies, it definitely puts a damper on enjoying the season. Follow these tips to keep allergens out of your home and out of your life this spring!

1. Regularly Clean Your Home

Allergens can spread throughout the air, being brought into your home on your clothes, shoes, hair, and even skin. Keeping allergens inside your home to a minimum is an absolute must, although it might seem like an impossible task! In order to keep allergies at bay in your home, be sure to thoroughly clean your home on a regular basis: dusting, vacuuming, changing your filters, and wiping down surfaces can go a long way in keeping allergen levels at their lowest! You can also keep a cleaner home by investing in an air purification system

2. Invest In Air Purification

Pollen, pet dander, animal odors, airborne viruses, dust mites, and microbes… There’s no end to the contaminants that may be cycling through your home’s air conditioning system. Sometimes simply cleaning isn’t enough to get rid of all the potential allergens in your home. That’s where an air purification system comes into play.

Our air purification systems can eliminate up to 99.98% of allergens from your home’s air and surfaces! Some of our air purification solutions even work to eliminate static electricity and odors from your home as well, and they kill mold, bacteria, and even viruses to keep your home’s air supply ultimately safe and healthy all year round. 

3. Try Natural Methods

When allergy season gets bad, sometimes a holistic approach can help find some quick relief. A great trick can be to give yourself a quick hot steam. Hot water can truly do wonders for your allergy symptoms! Give yourself a sinus rinse, try a DIY face steaming technique, or just take a good old-fashioned shower. Don’t want to try steam? Look up methods for ‘acupressure sinus relief’ for some more great tips on getting immediate relief.

4. Invest in Your Health

One important thing you should always be doing to strengthen your ability to fight off allergies is working on your immune system and focusing on your health. Drinking plenty of good liquids, such as water, tea, soups, and broths, will help your system better regulate and flush out unwanted contaminants that cause allergy symptoms. Eating a balanced diet, with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables will also do wonders. If that still isn’t enough, try adding a vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine, so adding that in will reduce the severity of your symptoms in strides!
