Simple Steps To Reduce Allergens In The Home

Posted on: May 13, 2014

Spring has a arrived, and before the hot weather arrives it’s nice to open the windows and let the spring  breeze blow throughout the home. However, for allergy sufferers spring can be an unpleasant time of year, with respiratory irritation brought on by the increase in pollen, dust, mold and other pollutants.

Because most dirt and dust settles on the ground, the most effective way to reduce allergens is to vacuum floors and dust surfaces at least once a week.

Excessive Humidity in the Home

During the winter months a little humidity is welcome in the home to reduce airborne dust and prevent dry skin. During the warmer months humidity can actually increase certain allergens, such as mold and dust mites. If your home experiences excessive humidity, consider a whole house dehumidifier.

Indoor Air Pollution

The air inside the home is often more polluted than the air outside. Pet dander, cooking fumes, as well as painted finishes and flooring that give of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can cause health problems when the house is sealed tightly during the heating and cooling season. While your home’s furnace filter can trap many of the larger airborne particles, smaller particles and gases can only be filtered out by a whole house air filtration system that works with your HVAC system to keep the air clean.

Air Duct Cleaning

If you are noticing dust accumulating on surfaces more frequently and are suffering from allergies, professional duct cleaning can help to remove built up dirt, helping you and your air conditioner breath more easily.
