Protecting Your Home’s Air Quality During Allergy Season
It won’t be too much longer when the weather will turn warm and stay that way for several months. Warmer weather means trees and flowers blooming. Trees and flowers blooming means our cars, driveways, patios, rooftops and anything else exposed to the outside elements will be covered with pollen. There are several things you can do to help protect your home’s air quality during allergy season.
Change Your Air Filters Regularly
First and foremost, change your comfort systems air filter(s) on a regular basis. Your air filters do just that: filter air. During the heavy pollen season, air filters can become clogged with pollen, animal dander and other pollutants much faster than at normal times of the year. Change your air filter at least every month.
Keep Your Home Cleaner than Usual
Second, make an effort to keep the surfaces of the inside of your home cleaner during this time of year. Vacuuming carpeting and flooring more often will keep air pollutants inside your home to a minimum. Keeping counter tops, furniture and other flat surface areas clean will also cut down on allergens remaining in your home.
Bathe Your Pets
Third, make sure any inside pets are kept clean via washing and brushing their coats. Inside animals, particularly dogs, have to go outside periodically and they will bring pollen and other pollutants into your home. Keep their beds and sleeping areas clean. If they spend a good bit of time on sofas and chairs, make sure to vacuum those areas regularly. If they sleep with you, wash your bed linens more often during this time of year to help eliminate inside allergens caused by pets.
Spring time is a natural shedding period for animals. If you have inside pets, they will most certainly be leaving behind more dander, loose hair and other air pollutants associated with their skin during this time of year. Make an extra effort to clean up after them.
Invest in an Air Purification System
Fourth, consider investing in an air purification system such as an American Standard AccuClean Whole-Home Air Filtration System. This system can remove up to 99.98 percent of airborne particles and allergens from the filtered air your family breathes – including dust, dander, pollen, and bacteria. It also outperforms HEPA, and is up to 100 times more effective than a standard 1-inch filter. Learn more about it here: https://climatechproair.com/air-purification/.
