As flowers bloom and temperatures rise, the arrival of spring brings joy to many – but for allergy sufferers, it can mean months of discomfort and sniffles. While you can’t control the pollen levels outside, you can take steps to improve the air quality inside your home and alleviate allergy symptoms.

At Total Maintenance Inc., we understand the importance of feeling comfortable inside your home. Here are some indoor air quality tips to help you beat spring allergies once and for all!

Invest in High-Quality Air Filters

High-quality air filters are a great way to improve the air quality in your home. They work to trap pollen, dust, pet dander, and other allergens before they make their way into your respiratory system. Remember to replace your filters regularly to maintain optimal performance and minimize allergen buildup. If you have furry friends in your home, you may need to change them more frequently.

Keep Indoor Spaces Clean

Here is your reminder to begin your spring cleaning if you haven’t already. Regular cleaning is essential for reducing allergens indoors and can help alleviate allergy symptoms. Vacuum carpets and rugs, dust surfaces with a damp cloth, and wash your bedding and curtains. 

Control Humidity Levels

Spring is the season for inviting guests into your home for gatherings and social events. However, mold and mildew are certainly guests that are not welcome. Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home can help prevent mold growth and reduce allergens. Consider investing in a dehumidifier to keep humidity levels between 30-50%, especially in damp areas like basements and bathrooms.  

Consider Air Purifiers

Air purifiers can be highly effective in removing airborne allergens such as pollen, mold spores, and pet dander. Whether you choose portable units for specific rooms or whole-house systems for comprehensive coverage, air purifiers can significantly improve the air you breathe, providing much-needed relief from spring allergies.

Don’t let spring allergies dampen your spirits or compromise your indoor air quality. By implementing these indoor air quality tips, you can create a healthier, more comfortable environment for you and your family.
