In like a lion...out like a lamb.... How has your March been? We're half way through the month and the warming temps have triggered an early spring...and are likely triggering allergies too. Here's 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 book shelves 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.
Contact AFS for a free visual inspection; we'll help you determine the best way to give you a dry, healthy home...and one that doesn't encourage those allergies to attack!
