Spring Allergy Alleviation
Springtime allergies are an annual nuisance for many people. Mold growth increases due to rain and many plants begin releasing pollen. Likewise, spring-cleaning activities can stir up dust mites. To reduce your allergies, be sure to take the following steps:
Wash your bedding every week in hot water to help keep pollen under control.
Wash your hair before going to bed, since pollen can accumulate in your hair.
Wear an inexpensive painter’s mask and gloves when cleaning, vacuuming or painting to limit dust and chemical inhalation and skin exposure.
Vacuum twice a week.
Limit the number of throw rugs in your home to reduce dust and mold.
Make sure the rugs you have are washable.
Change air conditioning and heating air filters often.
