You work hard to keep your Columbus, Georgia, house spotless, but perhaps you're still finding that indoor allergies are a real problem. You may not be getting to the root of the issue. Here are four remedies for indoor allergies that can help you avoid feeling stuffy.
Keep Pollen Outside
Pollen is easy to track indoors, where it can mix with the dust in your home that further aggravates your allergies. Your pet can be bringing in pollen. Wipe your pets down after letting them in, and opt for frequent baths. Keep your windows closed to prevent pollen from coming in on days when the pollen count is high.
Even with the best efforts, pollen, dander, dust, and other debris can end up in our homes. A great way to battle the effect it can have on your indoor air quality is by cleaning often. Vacuum your carpet regularly. You should also ensure that your vacuum features a HEPA filter, as that will help stop allergens from getting released back into the air after your vacuuming.
Changing Air Filters
Your air filters can get clogged and prevent proper airflow. A dirty air filter is bad for your furnace's health, but it's also bad for your health. The particles the filter would have trapped if it had been changed can pass through your vents and put back into the air. Simply changing your air filters as recommended can help improve indoor air quality. Remember that if you have pets, live near construction, or other high traffic areas, it may be necessary to change your air filters more often.
An air purifier is another option. This device works to clean the air of the entire house of debris, dust, and dander. Air purifiers improve air quality and reduce bad smells.
