As tempting as it may be to open up your windows and air out your home after a long window, it could be the worst thing you could do for your allergies. Opening your windows creates an invitation for pollen and other allergens to enter your home. Depending on the severity of your allergies, you may be able to open your windows on days where the allergen count is low, but for the most part, it’s a good idea to keep them closed until allergy season is over.
If you already have allergens in your home, they’re likely hiding among the dust in your house. Dusting may not be the most exciting chore in the world, but it can make a huge difference for your sinuses and your allergies if you do it regularly.
When was the last time you changed your air filters? If it’s been a while, now is the time to do it. Your HVAC’s air filters do exactly that — they filter the air in your home of dust, dirt, and even allergens. As you can imagine, over time, the filters become dirty and less effective, so it may be a good idea to change them so they aren’t circulating allergens throughout your home.
Keeping your home clean is a great way to reduce the number of allergens. While dusting is a great start, one of the dustiest places in your home is your carpet. For this reason, it’s a good idea to invest in a high-quality vacuum that can really get deep and clear the dust and allergens from your carpet.
Bad allergies can really put a damper on everything there is to love about spring. At Detroit Sinus Center, we want to help you find relief for your allergies, as well as provide you with tips on how to manage them on your own.
