Are you wondering how to navigate your allergies this season? You may need to take a closer look at your indoor air quality – it could be the culprit.

Read on to explore the factors behind allergies, common symptoms, DIY techniques for promoting healthier indoor air, as well as whole-home purification and UV light solutions.

What Creates an Allergy?

Ever wondered what triggers those sneezes and sniffles? Let’s dive into the fascinating world of allergens and what makes our bodies go, “Achoo!”

Allergy symptoms pop up when we encounter certain allergens – the stuff we inhale, ingest, or even touch. Pollen and grass from the great outdoors, or the indoor wonders like pet hair, mold spores, and good old dust. Even tobacco smoke plays a role in stirring up indoor air quality and causing allergic reactions.

Now, here’s the twist – the levels of these allergens can play hide-and-seek, dancing to the seasonal beat. And guess what? Our sensitivity to them can vary too, turning what seems unproblematic into a potential “Achoo” moment!

What Are Some Typical Allergy Symptoms?

If you have been feeling off lately, you might be wondering if you have developed seasonal allergies. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may be experiencing seasonal allergies:

  • Stuffy or runny nose
  • Frequent sneezing
  • Itchy or red eyes
  • Sore throat
  • Itchy or red ears
  • Restless nights

Easy Steps for a Breath of Fresh Air in Your Home

Improving your indoor air quality can be a breeze, here are some simple steps you can take right away. While we always recommend professional care, these actions will give you a head start:

  • 1. Change Your Air Filters: If you’re comfortable doing it, swap out those filters pronto. Opt for ones with asthma- and allergy-friendly certifications for that extra layer of protection.
  • 2. Keep it Clean: Ensure your bedding and soft surfaces are squeaky clean. Shield your furniture, mattresses, and pillows from dust mites with allergen-resistant covers.
  • 3. Let the Freshness In: Weather permitting, make sure your space is well-ventilated. Let the crisp air circulate, creating a healthier indoor environment.
  • 4. Dust Off and Vacuum: Show some love to your home by dusting off surfaces, vacuuming carpets, and giving your window treatments a refresh. Clear away dust, pollen, and mold to breathe easy.
  • 5. Pet Care: Keep your furry friends clean, and if possible, limit their presence in your sleeping area. A little pet TLC goes a long way in maintaining a healthy indoor atmosphere.

By taking these friendly, DIY steps, you’ll enjoy a breath of fresh air in your home while you eagerly await the expertise of our licensed technicians to elevate your indoor air quality. Your well-being starts with the little things!

As your home remains comfortable, the air is efficiently filtered, eliminating allergens like dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, and pollen. A whole-home air purifier ensures that the issue of polluted indoor air is tackled throughout your entire house, not just in a single room.
