Know How to Get Rid of Allergens in Your Home All Year Long

The spring season is well known as allergy season, especially with the introduction of pollen. However, if you’re one of the millions of people who suffer allergy symptoms, you know that “allergy season” actually lasts all year long. Furthermore, indoor allergens are some of the peskiest culprits. Use the following tips for how to get rid of allergens in your home so you can breathe easier during every season.

How to Get Rid of Allergens in Your Home: Cleaning 101

One of the most effective ways to get rid of allergens in your home is good cleaning practices. That starts with the cleaning spray you use. Some chemical sprays can produce allergic reactions, so consider using eco-friendly spray cleaners and detergents.

Use a vacuum cleaner with HEPA filtration for carpets and furniture. You may also vacuum air vents before dust and dirt build up. For hard flooring, use a microfiber broom rather than a conventional push broom.

With the year-round high humidity in Martin, Palm Beach, and Indian River counties, mold is always a potential problem. Inspect your home top to bottom for mold growth. If you do spot mold, call a mold-remediation company to inspect.

How to Get Rid of Allergens in Your Home: Air Purification

In your fight against allergens in your home, you should use an air-purification system. Air purifiers are designed to remove an array of allergens and destroy pathogens that cause allergy symptoms — and worse.

Your choices for air purifiers are going to be a portable unit that purifies air in a single room or a whole-home air-purification system. Whole-home air purifiers offer greater protection, of course, and make the air in your entire home safer to breathe.

Whole-home air purifiers are installed by your HVAC technician. The purification system uses the HVAC ductwork system to purify air when the heating and cooling systems activate or the fan setting is switched to “On.”
