How to Prepare for Fall Allergens

Other than limiting your exposure to pollen, there isn’t much else you can do when you are outdoors to avoid allergens. However, there are a few actionable steps you can take to eliminate fall allergens and achieve maximum comfort in your home.

The Most Common Fall Allergens

Even those living in cities can be affected by allergens. Ragweed pollen is one of the most common autumn allergens. It can travel hundreds of miles being carried by the wind right to your neighborhood. Don’t dry your laundry outdoors where ragweed pollen can cling to it.

Mold spores and dust mites can also set off your allergies and exacerbate your reaction to pollen. One of the easiest things you can do to help reduce the presence of allergens in your home is to clean it often. Mold has the ability to grow on different types of surfaces, and dust can build up in corners and creases. 

Replace the HVAC Filter

Your air filter is tasked with keeping your indoor air clean. Checking it often and replacing it before it becomes clogged will keep your HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently while catching any free-floating allergens drifting indoors.

Schedule Duct Cleaning

Allergens that get into your house may accumulate inside your ductwork from which they will then spread throughout your home. Arrange for a professional to clean your ducts to keep your HVAC system’s airflow unobstructed.

Arrange an HVAC Maintenance Appointment

Get the most out of your HVAC system while eliminating the presence of allergens in your home by having a competent professional conduct regular maintenance. The fall is the season that you will start to think about turning on your furnace. A comprehensive maintenance visit by a knowledgeable technician will ensure that your heating and ventilation will function seamlessly in the cold months.
