We’ve not only compiled some information for you about all of those annoying spring allergies, but we also have some solutions!
Pollen - If you are an allergy sufferer, you probably dread the annual pollen outburst. These tiny grains are released into the air by trees, grass, and weeds. Why pollen? Well, they do serve a purpose in terms on the Earth- they fertilize other plants. However, when pollen finds its way into the nose of someone who’s allergic, your immune system essentially goes into overdrive in an attempt to rid your body of the seemingly foreign invader! Those antibodies start their work and attack the allergens, which causes histamines in the blood. Do you know what that means? Runny nose, scratchy throat, and itchy and watery eyes!
These plants are some of the biggest allergy producers when it comes to that pollen:

Did you know airborne allergens also can trigger asthma? So, how do you escape these “invaders?” One great way to provide relief for your family is with an air purifier. An air purifier will help to rid your home of these allergens as they make their way through open windows and doors all season-long! Scheduling regular duct cleaning for your HVAC system is another way to help rid your home of allergens and dust all year long.
Your home should be comfortable for your family and guests. That’s why it’s important to make these changes now before anyone gets sick. Can you believe it’s February already?
