Achoo! Beating Allergy Season

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012 by AFS Repair

In like a lion...out like a lamb....  How has your March been?   We're half way through the month and the warming temps have triggered an early spring...and are likely triggering allergies too.    Here's a few pointers on reducing allergens in your household:

-- Tree and grass pollens begin to spread as early as late February and can continue through early summer.  Close windows while you're mowing or sprucing up patios and gardens outdoors.

--A thorough spring cleaning eliminates allergy triggers that may have built up throughout winter... and the rest of the year... in your home.  Remember small and hard-to-reach areas like book shelves and air conditioning vents.

-- Peak pollen times are between 10am and 4pm;  try to minimize your time outdoors.

-- Indoor Allergens are just as troublesome as outdoor ones. 

Did you know???  Dust mites are the #1 cause of indoor allergies.    Dust mites thrive in warm, humid environments.  Have you assessed your home's total health lately?  If you have a musty or wet basement or crawlspace, you may be making it incredibly easy for these microscopic pests to thrive in your home.

Contact AFS for a free visual inspection;  we'll help you determine the best way to give you a dry, healthy home...and one that doesn't encourage those allergies to attack!
