Spring allergies can cause nosebleeds, coughing, sneezing, watery or itchy eyes, headaches, nausea, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and other unpleasant symptoms. Allergens like dust, pollen, or mold can also shorten your heating and air conditioning system’s life and waste energy. The top ways to reduce spring allergies in your Cheverly, Maryland, home are cleaning often, controlling your humidity, and maintaining your HVAC system.

Cleaning Often

You should vacuum and dust every day or have someone do it for you. Also, take advantage of Cheverly’s beautiful weather and do some spring cleaning. Have your carpets and furniture steam cleaned, and clean exhaust fans by turning off the power and washing the covers with soapy water. You should also use a damp cloth to clean your home’s air registers, return vents, and ceiling fans.

Controlling Your Humidity

If the humidity in your home is too high, the extra moisture will encourage mold growth. Then your allergies will get worse, and your home could be damaged. A whole home dehumidifier can remove excess moisture from your indoor air and save energy by making you and your family feel cooler without the air conditioner. Many programmable thermostats can monitor your home’s humidity as well as the temperature and let you know if your air is too moist or dry.

Maintaining Your HVAC System

You should change your air filter once per month so that your HVAC system can remove allergens effectively. Also, old filters can become clogged and spread pollen, dirt, mold, pet dander, and other contaminants through your home. Keep pollen, dirt, and dust away from your outdoor unit for even better indoor air quality. You can use an awning to provide shade and keep away debris.
