How to Beat Spring Allergies in 4 Easy Steps
Spring means warmer weather, but it can also bring problems with seasonal allergies. Fortunately, Gross Heating & Air Conditioning can help you stay comfortable (and hopefully sneeze less). Below, we’re sharing advice on how to beat spring allergies this season—read through them and call us at 262-783-6000 for more expert tips.
#1 – Spring Clean Your Home
During the winter, contaminants and allergens like dust, dirt, and pet hair naturally settle throughout the house. The best way to get rid of them? Put in some elbow grease. Dust your home from top to bottom, including ceiling fan blades, bookshelves, and cabinets. Then, grab your vacuum and finish off with the floors and carpets. Be sure to also hit vent covers and, if you can, the insides of your ducts—this is a great way to get rid of allergens that settled and built up inside the vents.
#2 – Replace Your Air Filter
We talk a lot about how important your air filter is in maintaining good indoor air quality. That’s because it helps capture and remove allergens in your home. Over time, however, that filter gets dirty—replacing it every one to three months will help keep clean air flowing and nasty contaminants from circulating. It can help you feel more comfortable and soothe your spring allergy symptoms all at once.
#3 – Install an Air Purifier
These systems are designed to do the same thing as air filters—only on a bigger scale. As air passes through it, the purifier collects dust, dirt, and other contaminants and eliminates them. The air that comes out the other side and flows through your house is fresh, clean, and healthy. Air purifiers are quiet, effective, and out of the way.
#4 – Consider a Dehumidifier
As the weather warms up, the air will become more humid—both inside and out of your house. Not only is that extra moisture uncomfortable, but it’s also a breeding ground for allergens like mold and mildew. A dehumidifier works to remove that excess moisture, therefore reducing the number of contaminants living in it.
