From the first hints of spring through the last gasp of fall, the Hagerstown, Maryland, area is packed with potential allergens. Keep the three worst allergens in the Mid-Atlantic out of your home by following these four steps.

Tree, Grass, and Weed Pollen

Spring and summer mark tree pollen season, with maple and elm pollen seasons lasting the longest. Just when you thought outdoor allergens had finally subsided, grass and weed pollen season tends to pick up in the summer and extend through the fall. Orchard grass and plantain weeds are often the most problematic.

Keep pollen outside where it belongs by wiping your shoes off outdoors and then removing them as soon as you get inside. If you’ve spent more than a few minutes outdoors during the day, there’s a high chance that your hair and clothes are coated in fine pollen particles. Shower and change your clothes at the end of the day to lower your exposure. Stop inviting pollen indoors by keeping doors and windows closed as much as possible.

Mold Spores

While many mold spores can live year-round, some of the most common are predominant from mid-September through mid-November. Keep mold at bay by maintaining a moderate humidity level in your home. If moisture levels in your home always seem uncomfortably high, consider investing in a whole-home dehumidifier to get humidity under control.

Dust Mites

Unlike allergens that originate outdoors, dust mite issues tend to become more substantial in the fall and span the entire winter season. Since most Hagerstown homeowners spend more time indoors during these seasons, dust mite allergies can get uncomfortable. To keep these critters out of your home, schedule a deep cleaning session each week. Vacuum carpets and rugs thoroughly, and sweep and mop all hard floor surfaces. Dust tables and counters, vacuum upholstered furniture, and wash curtains for good measure.

The quality of the air in your home is nothing to sneeze at. For professional help with improving your indoor air quality, don’t wait another minute to call Griffith Energy Services, Inc.: 888-474-3391.
