Summer is a great time for fun in the sun, picnics and of course, pesky allergies. Some people are lucky enough not to be affected by them, but others aren’t so fortunate. The best thing that you can do is keep them under control. To that end, the last thing you need is for your house to be aiding this enemy of yours. Thankfully, there is something you can do about it. So here are a few ways to help you out, and make sure that your home doesn’t make you sick this summer.
Have your vents cleaned
Over time, dust, pollen and pet dander can build up inside of the home, and really make your life difficult if you suffer from respiratory or allergy problems. A thorough cleaning will ensure that all of that stuff is kept out of the air that you breathe. Sometimes the symptoms can go undetected for a long time, so make sure to have regular maintenance done.
Clean your air filters
If you have air filters, then make sure you pay attention to them, and check them regularly. If certain forms of dust accumulate in them over time, then they will become too dirty to function. You don’t want the air circulating through your house to be full of dust, and dander. Simply remove them and wash them off regularly, and should it help immensely.
Get a humidifier
If it is very hot outside, as it normally is in summer, then it can get very dry, and that can make it difficult to breathe, and cause people’s allergies to act up. Breathing in higher-quality air can serve as a cure to many allergies like dry mouth and other difficulties breathing. A humidifier will increase the amount of water vapor in the air, and make it easier for those with the allergies to breathe.
