Even if you don’t have plants and flowers in your home, pollen can still be carried in from outdoors. The following steps will help to minimize the amount of pollen in your home:
Keep windows and doors closed as much as possible during pollen season and use an air conditioner to cool the indoors.
Install an air filtration system with a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter to remove pollen from circulating air.
Bathe pets often to reduce the amount of pollen they carry into the home.
Dry your clothes and bedding in a dryer instead of using an outdoor line since pollen can cling to fabric and be transferred into your home.
Nearly all allergens thrive in moist, damp environments, so keep your home as cool and dry as possible. While it’s virtually impossible to completely remove all allergens, regular cleaning and taking preventative action will make your home as comfortable as possible for allergy sufferers.
