How to Beat Allergy Season

Pollen in the air

Allergy season can be rough for those that have to deal with it every spring. You typically can take allergy medicine to help, but even in doing so, you might feel like you just can't catch a break. Fortunately, homeowners can start taking some steps so they can relieve their allergies when at home. Try out these ways you can help tackle your allergies:

Plants

Much like trees do, regular house plants can help you filter out the air around your house. Placing plants indoors means various pollutants and pollen can be gone without you having to take too many additional measures. However, you'll want to find the right house plant for you first.

First, think about what kind of particles bother you. If you're someone whose allergies get triggered by benzene, you can have some Gerbera daisies to control how much is in the air. You can also put Dracaena around your house, as Dracaena is known for grabbing various allergens directly out of the air. Strongly think about putting plants inside your home if you want to control your allergies.

Air Filters

Depending on the air filters you have, they might only last a couple of months at a time. It's easy to lose track of time, though, and before you know it, you're suffering from allergies due to having poor indoor air quality. To solve this, you'll want to set reminders in your calendar to replace your air filter, so you don't forget!

You'll also want to think about the rating of your air filters. Each air filter has its own rating that corresponds to how many particles get through. With a higher rating, you might not have to worry as much about your allergies since pollen and other particles will start getting blocked. Make sure that you always pay attention to your air filters if you're someone who suffers from allergies.

In all, this advice should help you have a much better allergy season. Make sure you are always looking up different house plants and maybe even stock up on air filters, so you have them on hand when you're ready to swap them. You'll also want to make sure you listen to any other specific allergy needs from anyone else you have living inside your home.
