Avoid Fall Allergies

How to Avoid Fall Allergies

Seasonal allergies can be avoided so you can enjoy this time of the year more than ever before. Ragweed, outdoor mold, dust mites, and pet dander are the most common allergies this time of the year. Allergies can be triggered by temperatures, allergens being tracked in, wet leaves, or even starting up the furnace. The stress that seasonal allergies bring can be avoided. At Chem-Dry, we have seven tips for our customers.

High-Efficiency Furnace Filter

Installing a high quality furnace filter can help your home greatly. It is possible to catch small particles like pollen, fine dust, and pet dander if you get a filter with a minimum filtration rating of MERV 8.

Close Your Doors and Windows

Since pollen can travel up to 400 miles from its source, it can seem impossible to stay away from exposure when the pollen count is up. Reducing the pollen count in your home is not too difficult. Close your doors and windows on days when the pollen count is high.

Wear a Mask

Even when the allergies get to you, outdoor work still needs to be done. Using an NIOSH N95 particulate respirator can help you keep away from aggravating particles that trigger your allergies.

Clean Your Carpets

Allergens and bacteria get caught in the fibers of carpet and build up over time. The allergens and bacteria in the air and carpets are reduced by Nature Chem-Dry’s cleaning process. Click on the link to learn more about our Home Health Study.

Get a HEPA filter Vacuum

It's unrealistic to expect that you get your home cleaned by professionals weekly. It is recommended to vacuum your carpets 1-2 times a week with a three-stage HEPA filter vacuum between professional cleaning appointments. Helping maintain the healthy state of your home, this machine reduces dust mites, dust, pet dander, and other allergens from the surfaces in your home.

Shower Before Bed

Your hair can trap smoke, dust, pollen, and mold throughout the day. These allergens may come in contact with your face after they are transferred from your hair to the pillow when you retire at the end of the day. Rinse allergens from your hair by taking a quick shower before you lay down to minimize night-time allergy symptoms.

Allergy-Proof Your Bed

Put allergen-proof fabric covers on your box springs, pillows, and mattresses to improve the health of your bed. Dust, dust mites, and their waste will build up over time, so this is a highly recommended precaution to take.
