Ah, warm weather in Davis, Dixon, Vacaville, California. The birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing, and thanks to seasonal allergies, your nose might be running when you spend time outside. If your seasonal allergies indoors are just as bad, it’s time to boost your home indoor air quality (IAQ)!
How can you remove allergens from your home and put a stop to seasonal allergy symptoms inside? And what if the cause of your allergy symptoms inside your home are actually symptoms of poor IAQ? Greiner Heating and Air is here to help you improve your indoor air quality thanks to our trained experts.
What Are the Symptoms of Poor IAQ?
There are any number of reasons why the air quality in your home might not be what it ought to be. Common causes of poor indoor air quality include:
- High humidity
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
- Pet fur or dander
- And much more
These irritants can lead to any number of symptoms which can closely mirror those of seasonal allergies, including:
- Eye irritation
Seasonal allergy symptoms typically come in, make you feel under the weather, then eventually dissipate. Reactions to poor IAQ, on the other hand, can stick around, and even bring longer-term issues, making it even more important to ensure that the air you breathe at home is healthy.
How You Can Boost Your Home Indoor Air Quality
Ready to find some solutions to poor home IAQ? Improving your house’s air quality for allergy symptom relief can be easy if you know where to begin!
Keep moisture and humidity low in your home by running bathroom and kitchen fans when humidity is high due to normal activities like showering or cooking. This can prevent mold growth and stuffiness.
Keep Outdoor Pollution Out
In California, wildfire smoke infiltrating homes is becoming increasingly common. Keep it out of your home’s air with air sealing, which is the best way to eliminate the small gaps and holes in your home that let outdoor temperatures and polluted outdoor air in.
Keep Your Home Fresh and Clean
Whether you deal with stuffy air or frequent allergy symptoms, cleaning and ventilation should be your top priorities to keep your home fresh.
Frequent cleaning and dusting can help keep dust levels low in your home. If you can, making the switch to cleaning products with fewer harmful chemicals and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) can make a difference in keeping your air clean and healthy.
Even better, ventilation systems can help you freshen your home’s air much more quickly and effectively than simply opening windows and doors.
