Allergy symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, and sneezing are to be expected when you are outside enjoying the warmer months of the year. But when you go inside your home to escape the heat, you should also be escaping the symptoms! However, if you find yourself feeling like the allergens have moved in with you, it is time to rethink your HVAC filtration.
There are many way that allergens can get into your home.
- Pollen can blow in through an open window or door
- Pets can track in dust and dirt
- Damp areas can become breeding grounds for mold and mildew
Dust, pet dander, pollen, mold spores, and chemicals can all cause sneezing, coughing, and even more severe allergy symptoms. Now that you know the problem is in your home, begin your attack from the inside out. You can start relieving symptoms by minimizing clutter and removing items that collect allergens, like carpeting and moldy wallpaper. Be sure to check crawl spaces, attics, and around your water heater and water softener system if you have one. These are common areas where mold likes to hide and flourish.
After ensuring the inside of your home is safe, keep it protected from more allergens getting in with an air filtration system. A whole-home filtration or purification system will help control the problem by working with your HVAC system to remove even the smallest airborne allergens.
