Residents in South Florida know all too well that, while we love our year-round warm weather, we don’t necessarily love all the allergies that come with it. Since our allergy season tends to be longer than most because of all of the different flora that survive throughout the year, we wouldn’t be surprised if you’re constantly racking your brain trying to figure out ways to fight off the sniffles. If you want to survive spring allergies in Florida, here are a few things you should definitely be doing.
Know What You’re Allergic To
Before you go grabbing every allergy medication on the shelf, have your doctor test you to see exactly what you’re allergic to. Then, they can recommend specific medications that may work better for you than others.
Hang Out Outside After It Rains
Pollen counts are usually lower after it rains since pollen and other allergens get washed away during storms. This is typically when you experience fewer allergy symptoms when venturing outside.
Dry Your Clothes Inside
It may be more environmentally friendly to hang dry your clothes outside, but you’re just allowing more pollen and allergens to stick to your clothes and irritate your allergies. Especially in spring, utilize your dryer unit when doing your laundry.
Change Your Air Filters
While your HVAC system’s filters don’t make a huge difference in your indoor air quality, they do catch allergy-inducing particles and keep them from filtering back into your home. If you don’t change the filters regularly, your system will end up pushing dirty air to your home.
Install An Air Filtration System
The best way to survive spring allergies is to get rid of allergens entirely. An air filtration system can move the microscopic pollen, mold, and dust particles in your home’s air to help you breathe easier.
