Indoor Air Quality Tip To Help Ease Spring and Summer Allergies

As we enter into the spring here in Yuma, the dreaded threat of allergy season might have some of you worried. However, by taking a few basic steps to increase your home’s indoor air quality, you can curb your allergy symptoms. The  strategies listed below will allow you to breathe clean air throughout the spring.

The first thing you will want to do to increase the indoor air quality in your home is change your air filters. Dirty filters create poor air quality and miserable conditions for anyone who has asthma or allergies. According to the Energy Star program, you should change your filters at least once every three months and probably more often than that in the hot summer because the unit runs so much more.

Cleaning your windows is another way to keep the air in your home fresh and clean. The dirt, dust and cobwebs that tend to accumulate on windows create the perfect place for pollens to be trapped. By thoroughly cleaning your windows, you can vastly increase your home’s air quality. Also, the extra sunlight let in from clean windows is very beneficial to the overall livelihood of your home.

Gardening can also play a huge role on your indoor air quality. By trimming back bushes and trees and removing any weeds and debris from your yard, you can eliminate unwanted sources of pollen, mold and other allergens. Keeping your home clean on the outside will help keep your home’s air quality on the inside at a comfortable level.

If it seems like nothing you do improves your home’s air quality, you might want purchase an air purifier. Air purifiers are specifically designed to eliminate any unwanted dust, dust mites, mold, pollen, pet dander, bacteria and other allergens from the air.
