1. Get Allergen-Rated Filters
Let’s break this down. First, make sure to get filters regularly and install them properly. The next layer is to get the right kind of filter. Ensure your filters are allergen-rated to protect your HVAC system and protect your family's health.
2. Take Advantage of an Air Cleaner
An air cleaner is a great step to take if you or a family member has allergic sensitivities to pollen, dust, or other airborne particulates. Air cleaners will select and remove dust, mildew, mold, pollen, pet hair, and more from your home’s air.
3. Ventilate Your Home Thoroughly
If humid air in your home can’t get out, impure air gets trapped inside. Your bathroom and kitchen are huge sticking points. Make sure these two rooms get vented quickly after use to get rid of moisture and pollutants.
4. Use a Dehumidifier
The dry season is over. With spring, new and often too much moisture can get trapped in your home. A dehumidifier will help you manage the humidity in your home. This moisture management will help to prevent mildew and mold growth.
