How spring cleaning helps keep allergens out of the house in springtime

Spring is an interesting season with all the plants beginning to grow and flower. It is an excellent time to stay outdoors and enjoy nature. The air mostly smells fresh since all the vegetation makes it so. However, it is also the season when there’s a lot of pollen flying around, and dust tends to be on the rise too. People with allergic reactions are often on high alert during this period because anything can be a trigger for them. Needless to say, your HVAC system is also likely to be the dustriest in Spring since dust accumulates faster, not to mention that the filters will trap a lot more pollen and debris. It is important therefore to invest in regular AC maintenance during this period. You can never do enough cleaning in spring. Be on high alert and ensure that you replace AC filters regularly. Set reminders to help you remember to clean air ducts and also to check that no dust accumulates on the HVAC system coils. Note that this regular cleaning will help minimize allergens that could be in the air or dust. You can even call an HVAC professional to help you deep clean once in a while. Besides focusing on the air conditioning unit, consider cleaning the house also. Vacuum floors and mats, and wipe out walls and windows as a way of minimizing the amount of dust and debris that finds its way to the HVAC system.If you have allergic members in your household, consider not air drying your clothes, or using perfumed detergents to clean as this could worsen their allergies. Spring can be difficult for people with allergies but it doesn’t have to be so.
