Battling fall allergies in High Point, North Carolina, isn’t always easy. When you’re allergic to the grass, trees or blooms that cause allergy symptoms, you may wonder how you can combat them. These simple at-home cleaning tasks and routine maintenance services can reduce allergy symptoms in your home.

Eliminate Clutter

Cluttered areas tend to accumulate more dust and dirt. As a result, you’re likely to experience unpleasant symptoms if you have a dust allergy.

Clearing out clutter can help eliminate excess dust, which can lower the risk of experiencing symptoms. Clutter includes stacks of magazines you don’t read, newspapers and other porous items that trap dust.

Improve the Air Quality

Indoor air quality is often worse than what you breathe outside, causing allergies to flare up and cause discomfort. Poor air quality comes from contaminants in the HVAC system, which recirculate every time you run the furnace or AC.

What’s more, excess moisture in your home can cause mold growth, which worsens air quality. Using the AC can reduce moisture in the air, which lessens the risk of mold growth.

The easiest way to improve your air quality is to schedule a duct cleaning service. During this service, an experienced HVAC service technician will remove all dirt, dust, pollen and other debris that have settled in the ducts.

Keep the Windows Closed

Opening your windows during the fall might seem appealing, especially when the weather is nicer, but it can allow allergens enter your home. If you can’t resist the fresh air, try to keep the windows shut when pollen counts are highest. This is typically between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
