Tips For Cleaning Pollen & Avoiding Allergies
Updated: Aug 12, 2022
Do you suffer from bad pollen allergies and fear the warmer months of spring and summer when the pollen count suddenly rises? Use these tips to get rid of pollen in your house and work spaces and cut down on your allergy medication.
Cleaning Pollen Out Of Your Workplaces
Pollen that is found in your house and the work space can cause a huge issue, because it can be difficult to remove entirely and your HVAC system may circulate the same pollen particles through the air over and over again. Pollen particles are often too small for normal filters to grab ahold of them. By the time you realized that the filters are not adequate - it is usually too late to do anything about it. What if we told you, you can now.
Be thorough; Pollen can settle anywhere, and the best way to remove it is to thoroughly vacuum your entire house and work spaces. In spring when pollen is deemed a "problem", vacuum once or twice a week to remove as much pollen as possible.
Target the right areas; Understand how pollen gets into your house. Family members, friends and pets who spend a lot of time outdoors are important vector points because of their fur and clothing. Contain sources and try to clean up pollen as quickly as possible.
Use the latest filters and technology; there are vacuum cleaners and air filtration systems designed to help filter out pollen and other small allergens.
Control Pollen Entry Points
In addition to people, pollen enters your house and work spaces when outside air gets inside.
Open doors and windows are the usual culprits. If you are in the habit of leaving windows open for fresh air, you may want to close up during the pollen months. If your weatherstripping – the felt around your windows and doors – is bare, you may want to replace it to stop and prevent any leaks. Make sure your attic insulation and air vents are also properly installed - because that's where moisture problems occur the most.
