Spring is in the air in Raleigh, North Carolina. The wildflowers are blooming, trees are budding, and wild grasses are thriving. However, with all the new growth comes pollen. If you’re allergic to pollen, spring can be a miserable time of year. Let’s take a look at three actionable steps you can take to help reduce or eliminate spring allergies in your home so you can breathe easier.
Add Air Cleaners to Your Home
Pollen particulates are tiny and they can easily get inside your home. The Trane Clean Effects Air Cleaner™ can capture up to 99.98 percent of pollen and other airborne particles that can trigger an allergy attack. You can help to reduce allergy symptoms by installing an air purification system.
Use a Vacuum Cleaner With HEPA Filters
Keeping your home clean is vitally important when you are trying to reduce allergy symptoms and attacks. Wipe counters often and be sure to vacuum on a regular basis. Make sure to use a vacuum that uses high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters. The fine mesh in the filters can trap most of the pollen.
Install a Humidifier
When you are suffering from allergies, your nasal passages often become clogged with mucus that makes breathing difficult. If the humidity levels in your home are low, your sinuses will have a hard time getting rid of the mucus. Adding a humidifier to your home will add just enough moisture so that your sinuses won’t build up excess mucus. It will be easier to eliminate the allergens from your nasal passages. You will be able to breathe easy when you have a humidifier installed in your home.
