Preparing Your Home For the Allergy Season
As the spring arrives in the Chicagoland area, many allergy sufferers will take refuge inside their home from the tree and plant pollen that can make life miserable. While the pollen levels are lower indoors, overall air quality can actually be much lower indoors. The reason is our home’s are tightly sealed, trapping allergens like dust, pet dander, mold, cooking fumes and household chemicals. Dirty air ducts and furnace filters can make matters even worse.
Here are a few steps you can take to create an allergen-free living space:
- Have your carpets and window coverings professionally cleaned.
- Inspect your air ducts for excessive dirt and have them cleaned if needed.
- Replace your furnace air filter at least once a month.
- Keep windows closed during the day when pollen levels tend to be highest.
- If your home is prone to high humidity levels during the summer, consider installing a dehumidifier.
