Spring Allergens Can Significantly Affect Your IAQ

Damien McCusker

Springtime brings with it better weather, outdoor activities, and — unfortunately — seasonal allergies. Springtime allergies are a common problem many people face, and even if you don’t have seasonal allergies, the increased irritants can still cause discomfort and respiratory issues for you and your family. Being aware of common spring allergens, being proactive with home care, and making use of professional HVAC services can keep your home’s air quality high, which will improve your overall health.

Common Spring AllergensThat Affect Indoor Air Quality

There are many different spring allergens that can reduce your home's indoor air quality. The most common ones include various types of tree pollen, mildew, and molds. Exposure to these irritants can cause issues such as watery eyes, congestion, sneezing, and a runny nose. Such symptoms can also vary depending on your sensitivity and any pre-existing allergies.

Ways to Protect Your Home From Allergens and Irritants

Various methods can be employed to keep your home’s air safe and combat spring allergies. To keep common contaminants outdoors, take off your shoes and change clothes when you return from long periods outside, as this can keep irritants from being tracked indoors. In addition, regular vacuuming, dusting and laundry (especially of bedding and rugs) can reduce the number of allergens in your home, as can checking your air filters on a regular basis.
