Allergies are no fun, and fall sure brings a lot of them to Easton, Maryland. But allergies are no reason to avoid the gorgeous fall weather and the changing leaves. Simple solutions like humidity control and air purifiers work with your indoor air to keep you feeling your best this fall!
Remove Shoes and Coats at the Door
Pay attention to the pollen count and do your outdoor fall activities on days when the count is lower. Wear clothing that covers your arms and legs, and before you walk anywhere in your house take off your jacket and shoes. Throw your jeans and sweater into a laundry basket or hamper in the laundry room to keep from tracking pollen into the house.
Protect Your Garden With Cover Crops
Ragweed is a major culprit for fall allergies, and it loves to grow everywhere. Keep your vegetable garden safe by planting what’s called a “cover crop” which will prevent ragweed from taking root. Once you’ve picked all your veggies, planting clover, rye, or buckwheat is the perfect way to keep ragweed out while enriching the soil for next spring.
If you run a dehumidifier during the summer don’t turn it off yet. Mold spores love humidity and contribute to annoying fall allergy symptoms. Dehumidifiers are one of the best ways to ensure your home doesn’t have humidity levels that will encourage mold spore growth.
