  • Allergy Proof Your Home

    If you are feeling stuffy, groggy, tired and teary eyed, you may want to consider allergy proofing your home. How might one do this? By reading the article below!

    Garden Smartly. Pollen levels peak between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m., so save yard work for later in the day. Keep grass cut short, and consider wearing an air-filtering mask, goggles, and gloves while mowing the lawn. Avoid planting high-pollen-producing flowers such as amaranthus, juniper, and peonies, especially near windows or doors.

    Clean Your Gear. Don't hang fresh laundry out to dry, and shake out clothes after they've been worn outside. Shower as soon as possible after spending time outdoors. Pets can bring pollen in too, so keep a brush and wet wipes handy to clean off their fur and paws. Place mats on both sides of the front door; they'll function as a catchall for allergens and a landing pad for footwear, which should be taken off as you come indoors, when possible.

    Choose the Right Ventilation. Invest in crawl-space vent fans to keep humidity levels below 50 percent, which will thwart the spread of mold and mildew. When it's warm, opt for air-conditioning, instead of open windows, to cool the house.

    Manage Mold. Drain or dump any areas of stagnant water in your yard, and keep soil on your property moist, but not damp, to reduce airborne mold. And never linger outdoors-or open the windows-after a heavy rain.
