It’s springtime here in Tampa Bay, and the brutal effects of allergy season may have some of you struggling to breathe clean air. However, there are a couple of things that you can do to improve your home’s indoor air quality and alleviate your allergy symptoms.
The first thing that you can do is to change your air filters on a regular basis. Old air filters create unhealthy air quality levels and hazardous conditions for anyone who suffers from asthma or allergies. As stated by the Energy Star program, it is best if you change your filters at least once every three months.
Getting rid of the dirt, dust and cobwebs that accumulate on windows is another thing you can do to improve the quality of air in your household. Also, the additional sunlight that is let in from cleaner windows can create a much more enjoyable environment.
Gardening around your house can also be very beneficial to your home’s indoor air quality levels. By trimming back bushes and trees and removing any weeds and other debris from your yard, you can keep pollen, mold and other pollutants from getting into your home. Keeping your home clean on the outside will improve its indoor air quality.
If all else fails and nothing you try seems to increase the quality of your home’s air, you might want to consider buying an air purification system. Air purifiers will eliminate any unwanted dust, mold, pollen, bacteria and other pollutants from the air. You can get both whole-house systems and portable units.
