10 Effective Ways to Reduce Allergens in Your Home

Spring is just around the corner here in the Northwestern United States and with its beauty, it’s often accompanied by seasonal allergies. 

Do you find yourself sneezing, coughing, or experiencing itchy eyes whenever you’re at home? Allergens lurking in your living space might be the culprit. From pollen and dust mites to pet dander and mold, these microscopic particles can trigger allergic reactions and compromise your indoor air quality. Fortunately, with the help of Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning, you can take proactive steps to minimize allergens and create a healthier home environment.

Breathe Easier This Season:

Seasonal allergies don’t have to be a dread, here are 10 effective strategies to reduce allergens in your home:

1. Regular HVAC Maintenance: Schedule routine maintenance checks with Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning to ensure your HVAC system operates efficiently. Regular inspections and tune-ups help prevent the buildup of allergens and maintain optimal indoor air quality.

2. Replace Air Filters: Dirty air filters can trap allergens and circulate them throughout your home. Replace HVAC filters regularly, ideally every 1-3 months, to prevent the buildup of allergens and maintain clean air.

3. Invest in High-Quality Filters: Consider upgrading to high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters for superior allergen removal. HEPA filters can capture up to 99.97% of airborne particles, including pollen, dust, and pet dander, promoting cleaner indoor air.

4. Clean Air Ducts: Over time, dust, mold, and other allergens can accumulate in your air ducts, diminishing indoor air quality. Schedule professional duct cleaning services with Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning to remove contaminants and improve air circulation.

5. Control Humidity Levels: Maintain optimal humidity levels in your home to prevent mold growth and dust mite proliferation. Use a dehumidifier in damp areas and ensure proper ventilation to reduce moisture buildup.

6. Seal Leaks and Cracks: Seal gaps around windows, doors, and ductwork to prevent outdoor allergens from infiltrating your home. Proper insulation helps create a barrier against pollen, dust, and other allergens.

7. Clean Regularly: Establish a regular cleaning routine to minimize allergens in your home. Vacuum carpets and upholstery, dust surfaces, and wash bedding frequently to reduce the accumulation of dust mites, pet dander, and pollen.

8. Use Allergen-Proof Covers: Protect pillows, mattresses, and box springs with allergen-proof covers to prevent dust mites from thriving in your bedding. Wash covers regularly in hot water to maintain their effectiveness.

9. Remove Clutter: Clutter provides hiding spots for dust, pet dander, and other allergens. Keep your home tidy and organized to make cleaning more manageable and minimize allergen buildup.

10. Consider Air Purification: Invest in air purification systems to remove airborne allergens and improve indoor air quality. Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning offers a range of advanced air purification solutions to meet your specific needs.
