Indoor Air Quality Tips to Help Reduce Spring Allergies

With the spring season in full swing, you may find yourself suffering from a host of allergies in your Newnan, Georgia, home. Even though some of these common allergen triggers — such as dust and pet dander — are likely to exist in your home the whole year, spring can bring some additional triggers such as pollen. Help improve the indoor air quality in your home and ward off common spring allergens by following the tips below.

Keep the Pollen Where it Belongs: Outside

The first step to reducing your spring allergens is by doing your best to keep as much pollen as you can outside. When you have guests, ask them to remove their coat and shoes at the door. If you are warm, turn on the air conditioner instead of opening up the windows. You will not only keep the pollen out, but your AC unit will help remove the humidity from your home.

Keep Your Home Clean

Regular cleaning will help remove pollen, pet dander, and dust from the surfaces of your home and reduce them from your indoor air supply. Vacuum your home at least once a week, paying attention to corners and under furniture. Also, make sure to keep your surfaces dust-free and change your bedding at least once a week. You can reduce the amount of pollen and dust that accumulates in your home by removing unnecessary knickknacks, clutter, and decorative items that gather lots of dust.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Clogged filters, dirty components, and poor airflow can all reduce the quality of air in your home. During regular HVAC maintenance, we will clean your system, check for airflow problems, and ensure that your system is running as efficiently as possible. All this will help to reduce the amount of debris traveling through your cooling system and the amount that settles around your home.
