Indoor Air Quality: 5 Ways You Can Fight Spring Allergies

Achoo! Spring allergies are in full swing, and if you're one of the unlucky ones that get to experience it, you're not alone. Fortunately, there are ways you can fight those awful spring allergies - and it begins inside your home. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, your indoor air can be 2 to 5 times worse than outdoor air. And because we spend roughly 90% of our time inside, according to the EPA, it's important we focus on improving our indoor air quality. Here are the top 5 ways you can fight spring allergies and improve the quality of the air you breathe.

1. Ventilate When Cleaning

If you're like most Americans, you're likely planning on doing some spring cleaning this season. When you do, make sure you ventilate your space - especially if you're using cleaning products that contain chemicals, or other toxic components. You can open some windows and doors and use fans throughout your home to ventilate the area while you clean.

2. Change Your Air Filters

You should get in the habit of changing your air filters regularly, like once every 1-3 months. When your air filters become clogged with debris, dander and dust, all of those pollutants then circulate throughout your air. New air filters can not only vastly improve your indoor air quality, but it can also help your HVAC system work better.

3. Invest In An Indoor Air Quality Solution

Humidity control is often forgotten about, but it is an important factor to consider when it comes to your indoor air quality. In fact, improper humidity levels can wreak havoc on your health - and your home. Contact your local heating and cooling contractor to install a humidification system in your home that'll help you achieve the perfect humidity level. Say goodbye to spring allergies once and for all! Peter Levi has the following indoor air quality solutions to offer you:

4. Keep Allergens Outside The Home

5. Clean Regularly

Last but not least, make sure you are cleaning your home regularly. This means vacuuming carpets and rugs often with a vacuum cleaner. You'll want to use a vacuum with a HEPA filter for the best results. Also, don't forget to dust: windows, blinds, air vents, and more. By cleaning regularly, you can really help improve your indoor air quality and fight those frustrating spring allergies.
