Achoo! Beating Allergy Season

In like a lion…out like a lamb….  How has your March been?   We’re halfway through the month and the warming temps have triggered an early spring…and are likely triggering allergies too. Here are 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 bookshelves 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.
