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.
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.
