Allergies can occur year-round, however they’re particularly bad for many once the snow begins to melt and the temperature warms up. While avoiding exposure to outside allergens is nearly impossible, there are things that can be done inside your home to provide some much-needed allergy relief!
Change Your Air FiltersResidents of The Woodlands are responsible for changing their own air filters. We recommend changing them twice a year for maximum efficiency and to have the cleanest air possible.
Dust Often!No one likes to dust, especially when you have allergies. However, not dusting will leave your apartment a mess and increases the amount of allergens in the air. Dust once a week and then follow it up by vacuuming. You’ll have a cleaner apartment and be sneezing less!
Shower in the EveningSwitch up your routine and shower in the evening. Pollen sticks to clothing and hair so it’s best to shower and change clothes once you’re home for the night. Otherwise the pollen will be on your sheets, furniture and floor, essentially bringing the outside in.
Use Allergy Relief BeddingOnce you shower, slip into a bed that has allergy relief bedding on it. The special bedding keeps dust mites that are in the pillow, comforter and mattress from getting into the air. The bedding also prevents dead skin cells from getting to the dust mites, essentially starving them of their food.
Take Your Shoes OffIf you don’t take your shoes off in your home already, it’s time to start doing so. Pollen will stick to your shoes and spread throughout your apartment if you keep them on. Place a shelf or shoe rack by the front door so you have a designated spot to leave shoes when you come home. It will also act as a hint to guests that you would like them to remove their shoes.
