4 Tips for Keeping Common Allergens Out of Your Home This Spring

Allergens can pose a great threat to your health and convenience, especially in the spring. While avoiding allergens outside your home can be hard, it doesn’t have to be difficult inside. Here HVAC repair and replacement technicians from Stone Heating and Air have compiled a list of ways to keep allergens out of your house.

 Common Allergens

Dust regularly. Whether it’s dust mites, pet dander or pollen, the easiest way to keep allergens out of your home is by dusting. Schedule a thorough dusting session of your home at least once a week, and make sure that there are no surfaces left untouched. Also, remember to use a damp cloth that will help trap dust and allergens and prevent them from floating in the air.

Leave shoes outside. While this may not be a common practice, leaving your shoes outside will certainly help. When you’re outside, it’s hard not to step on pollen and other allergens. It can even cling to your hair and clothes. To make sure that you’re not bringing pollen into your home, keep shoes outside the door or in the garage. As soon as you enter, quickly shower and change clothes to remove any pollen from your hair and body.

Utilize your air conditioner. You may have to limit opening your windows for ventilation to prevent allergens from entering and spreading throughout your living spaces. See to it that your air conditioner is in top condition at this time of year. Don’t forget about scheduling routine air conditioning repair or maintenance so that your air conditioner won’t break down on you in times of need.

Change your air filter. Your air filter keeps dust, pollen, pet dander and other allergens out of your HVAC system. Cleaning or replacing your air filter at least once a month ensures your HVAC system’s performance and efficiency. If possible, look for high-quality air filters for spring. However, make sure that the filters that you choose are the right fit for your HVAC system.
