The trees are beginning to bloom, and it can only mean one thing–allergy season is upon us. For those with seasonal allergies making sure that your home and workplace are both as pollen-free as possible can make all the difference when it comes to comfort. It’s hard to participate in a conference call or have a conversation with your family if you can’t stop wheezing and sneezing. While there’s nothing like a professional cleaning to really clear up the pesky pollen, here are some easy ways to make allergy season more bearable.

Make Sure Pollen Isn’t Hanging Around in the Cracks

Having a regular cleaning routine is essential to minimizing pollen in your environment. While you may have plans for all your mopping, dusting, and vacuuming, it’s important to remember the harder to reach areas. Curtains, the tops of bookshelves and cabinets, and the tops of fan blades are all areas that hold lots of pollen but are often overlooked. For these areas, it is best to turn to professionals, or those less prone to hay fever, as they can be particularly dusty.

Replace and Clean Filters

It’s likely that you have more than a few filters throughout your home that could use a cleaning. Whether it’s your air conditioner, your dryer, or your bathroom exhaust fan, now is the time to clean or replace them. If your allergies are particularly bad you may consider replacing your air filter every month until the worst of the pollen has cleared up.

Limit How Much Pollen Comes Indoors

Your own clothes, your pet’s fur, and visitors shoes are all items that can be sources of pollen entry into your home. As you come in from being outside, make sure to take off shoes and outer layers in your entryway, not only will your house stay cleaner but less pollen will be tracked through. Additionally, invest in pet-friendly wet wipes to give your furry friend a quick sponge bath to remove pollen after outdoor play sessions.

Invest In An Air Filter

One of the most effective ways to eliminate pollen indoors is to invest in a high-quality air filter. Depending on the filter, you can reduce up to 99% of allergens within your home, a must for those with severe allergies. The filters for these usually need to be cleaned every three to six months, you’ll want to make sure any cleaning happens outside to prevent any unnecessary pollen leakage.
