This is time for spring and spring is a time when the temperatures are on the increase and everywhere becomes warm. Spring can also be a real pain for those who are suffering from allergies. The statistics say that about 60 million Americans suffer from one form of allergy or another which are due to seasonal causes and sometimes it can be mold that comes due to the rise in temperatures or pollen from trees because those trees and flowers are beginning to bloom. It is granted that one can find it difficult to control what he can expect to find outside, but one can reduce to a minimum the symptoms of allergy and their reactions that he can get in his home. One way not to attract pollen to yourself during the seasonal allergy periods is not to dry your laundry outside where they can attract pollen and also one needs to be mindful of other ways that pollen can get into the home. One suggestion that the author gives to prevent pollen from entering the home is to have all family members and guests leave their shoes at the door and to make sure to scrub every pet you have with a brush when they go outside. Other guidelines for making your home allergy free are outlined in the blog.
- Keep pollen out by brushing your pets, taking off shoes, and having mats setup both inside and outside the home.
- Ventilate and keep humidity levels appropriate to lessen the chances of mold and mildew.
- Get an air purifier to help eliminate much of the allergies in your home.
