This time of the year can make life difficult for allergy sufferers in Lakeland, Georgia. Pollen from elm, pine, pecan and other trees fill the air and cover everything thing with that sickly yellow dust. Unfortunately, some find it hard to escape the effects of these particles—even in their homes. Allergens enter the house through windows and doors, your hair, shoes or clothing. We’re happy to offer tips to help you improve the air quality in your home so that you can make it safe for allergy sufferers.
Tackling Airborne Allergens
You have a hard enough time worrying about viruses, bacteria, and the effects of chemicals in household products. Now, the arrival of spring brings with it a host of particles that wreak havoc in the lives of allergy sufferers. The season is also a difficult time for those with asthma or other respiratory conditions. Regular cleaning can only do so much. You’ll need an aggressive approach to containing or minimizing the effects of these allergens. Steps you can take include:
- Laundering curtains and bedding regularly
- Cleaning shoes outdoors
- Sealing cracks or gaps around windows and doors to prevent particles from streaming indoors
- Investing in air cleaning equipment like air purifiers
- Scheduling spring maintenance
Our maintenance service includes a thorough cleaning of your HVAC system. Regular air filter changes are important, too. We’ll check your air filter and replace it if necessary. We’re also happy to provide information regarding the type of filter you need and how often you should replace it.
