Spring is a wonderful time of flowers blooming, birds singing… and allergies. If your kids suffer from allergies, you know just how terrible they can be. One second, they’ll be playing around the house, and the next, they’ll be sneezing their brains out. Luckily, there are steps you can take to prevent them from suffering while they’re at home. By improving the indoor air quality and keeping things clean, you can help them feel better during allergy season.

It’s no secret that your HVAC system is crucial to maintaining good air quality. That’s why it’s so important to have regular duct cleaning done by a professional. Normally, the filters in your system can catch most pollen before it enters your home. However, if your filters are clogged or dirty, they won’t be as effective and could let harmful dust or other contaminants flow freely into the air. Aim to change your filters once a month, and have your system checked out by a professional at least once a year.

Cleaning is another great way to get rid of allergens in the home. Make the switch to allergy-proof bedding and curtains to prevent pollen from sticking to pillows and sheets, and wash them on a regular basis. This will let your child sleep more peacefully at night. Additionally, make sure to vacuum at least once a week to prevent allergens from building up.
