This time of year ushers in more than nice weather and longer days, it also brings with it a troubling season for many in Northeastern Ohio.

Allergy Season.

You may have cause for alarm this year if you suffer from Spring allergies.

Experts have predicted a long, difficult allergy season due to higher pollen counts than normal this year.

Fortunately, there are ways that you can help to lessen the severity of your allergy symptoms that don’t involve buying stock in Kleenex or stockpiling antihistamines.

The EPA suggests the following tips for alleviating allergy symptoms:

• Remove pet dander, houseplants and other sources of allergens.
• Fix leaky faucets, remove rugs, carpet, dust and anything else that collects or introduces allergens into your home.
• Leave your windows closed during allergy season. However, you need to ventilate properly to bring outdoor air indoors and remove indoor allergens.
• Clean your indoor air.

How to Clean Your Indoor Air

When you, or a member of your family, suffer from allergies or other respiratory conditions, the quality of the air inside your home is all the more important.

Virus-sized particles, bacteria, allergens, breathable dust and other airborne contaminants that circulate in your home can cause problems for those with respiratory conditions.

A quality Whole-House Air Cleaner may be the best solution for your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) issues.

Whole-House Air Cleaners clean and purify the air in your entire home, not just a single room. They can be up to 100 times more effective at cleaning your indoor air than standard air filters and can help improve your health, comfort and alleviate your allergy symptoms by removing dust or pollen in your air.
Air cleaners can also help keep your home cleaner and save you time by removing dust particles in the air before they have the chance to settle on your furniture and in your carpet.

At Blind & Sons, we recommend anyone who suffers from allergies or respiratory conditions contact a reputable HVAC company to find out if a Whole-Home Air Cleaner is right for them. Investing in cleaner air in your home may be one of the best investments you’ll make.

You don’t have to suffer through this allergy season cooped up inside, or wishing they made hazmat suits in your color.
