Spring is in the Air!

3 Ways To Allergy-Proof Your Home This Spring

Vancouver AirAllergy season is fast approaching, and once the flowers start to bloom and weekly lawn mowings are required, the symptoms are sure to bring up quickly and without remorse to those who suffer from allergies.

Due to this, it is necessary to allergy-proof the home as much as possible. Now, it is impossible to completely cut out all allergens from the house, as pollen can sneak in without any sort of warning.

However, it is possible to correct this issue and cut down on any sort of allergies someone might suffer from by using these three ways to allergy proof a home this coming spring.

HVAC Cleaning

You should have a yearly inspection and cleaning of your HVAC system. This ranges form cleaning the vents to making sure everything is working properly. A good deal of dust, dander, pet hair and other debris can collect in the ventilation systems, which in turn is pushed into the air and can cause breathing problems.

By bringing in a professional to help with this sort of service, you should notice a dramatic difference in the quality of your air.

New HVAC Filter

You need to change the filter inside of your home rather frequently. The frequency really depends on how often the AC is used during the spring. If you live in a warmer area of the country, such as Arizona, Texas or Florida, you need to change it out once a month.

If not, changing it once every three months is probably fine.

When selecting a new filter, choose one that is designed for people with pets and allergies. This way, it can clean out and collect more allergy causing items from the air and improve the air quality.Vancouver Air Quality

Cleaning the Carpets and Furniture

Dander, dust and pollen can become stuck inside of the carpeting and furniture of your home. When you walk inside the house, pollen is going to follow you. It is not as easy as just vacuuming the home once a week. You need to have the carpet completely cleaned.

Bring in a carpet cleaning company to perform a spring clean on the carpeting and furniture. This way, it returns everything back to normal and cuts out all of the allergy inducing pollens and airborne particles. Not only will you be able to breathe better, but it is going to make a dramatic difference in how well the home smells.
