How Can I Allergy-Proof My Home?
Allergens and irritants are, unfortunately, common in Florida households. Not only are residents often affected by seasonal allergies, but there are also several other issues one may face. In Florida, residents may become irritated by things like oak and pine trees and ragweed seen all over the state. Additionally, considering Florida is known for its humid climate, moisture often builds up and forms mold, producing irritating properties.
Other allergies many residents deal with on a year-round basis include pet dander, smoke, insect bites & stings, and food ingredients. Common reactions to the allergens include runny or stuffed noses, coughing and sneezing, difficulties breathing, itchy eyes or skin, congestion, fatigue, and more. To combat this, we’ve laid out tips residents can practice to allergy-proof their homes.
Ways To Allergy-Proof Your Home
By implementing simple tricks and routines into your day-to-day life, you can better prevent dealing with allergies that are so prevalent in the lives of many:
One of the best ways to allergy-proof your home is to invest in an air purifier. Air purifiers are installed in your ductwork and work to trap and remove any impurities and pathogens found in your home’s air, ensuring the air you breathe in is as fresh and pure as possible.
HVAC Filter Replacements
Ensuring your HVAC filter is replaced regularly is a great practice to adopt. HVAC filters capture dust and debris that builds up over time; if the filter isn’t clean, it will hinder your unit’s performance and push the dust and debris back out into the air you breathe.
When utilizing a heater to keep your home warm in the cooler months, indoor air will inevitably become drier. To combat this, purchasing a humidifier to moisten the air is critical. When your air is too dry, it can result in dry, itchy skin and eyes and issues breathing, especially for those with asthma.
Dirty ducts can lead to issues like mold and mildew buildup, excessive dust, foul odors, and inadequate airflow, all of which worsen allergy symptoms. Should you notice any of these problems, it’s essential to schedule a duct cleaning ASAP. If your ductwork is not operating as it should, it’s time to consider scheduling a duct replacement with us.
Clean Your Home Regularly
Simple tasks such as dusting can be easy to neglect; however, if you’re not keeping up with deep cleaning your home, you run the risk of worsening your allergy symptoms! Removing layers of dust, dirt, and other debris from furniture and vents and decluttering your space is a great practice. It will help avoid triggering symptoms like sneezing, dry skin and eyes, and irritated lungs.
