Ways to Reduce Your Seasonal Allergies Around Your Home
Ways to Reduce Your Seasonal Allergies Around Your Home
Sometimes it feels like the four seasons are summer, fall, winter, and allergies. While it’s great to see the nicer weather approaching, some of us inwardly groan because it means sniffling, going through a box of tissues daily, and constantly having red eyes.

Luckily, there are some measures you can take to reduce or prevent seasonal allergies around your home.

Get Rid of Some Culprits

Weeds aren’t only an eye-sore. They’re also a nose-sore. One of the most common seasonal allergy triggers is weed pollen. Even if one or two weeds don’t bother you, weeds spread and grow like, well, like weeds and can easily carpet your lawn. If they do that, the pollen they let off is enough to make the most stoic nose run.

Weed regularly, snatching weeds out by the root before they have the chance to spread. Consider weed treatments for your lawn to prevent weeds from taking root in the first place.

Another common problem weeds create is a coating of pollen on your sidings. This film doesn’t only look bad. It also accumulates in the grooves and cracks of Pinellas County siding, sticking around and making your nose itch forever. Regularly washing your siding can clean this pesky pollen away and keep it from bothering you.

Get Rid of Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew are other everyday allergens that can be prevented or culled. Tampa Bay Area siding can be especially susceptible to mold and mildew because of the warm wet conditions. These sniffling supervillains can gather in dark crevices on your siding, under lips and crannies, or lurk behind trees touching your siding. Regularly cleaning and deep cleaning periodically can reduce this source of seasonal allergies.

Clean More Often

We know you don’t want to hear this one, but it’s a painful truth that cleaning allergens away more often will keep you from sniffling. If you have patio furniture out, wipe it down regularly. You can probably see a film of pollen and dirt on your tables, chairs, and deck. Wipe it off with a mild cleaner (a solution that’s 70% water and 30% white vinegar is a good option that cuts a lot of dirt and grime while leaving glass sparkling), or power wash it if you have the machines. If not, a good old-fashioned watering hose should do the trick.

Clean House, Clean Air

Just like mom always said, cleaning is good for you. By washing your siding regularly, you eliminate a source of seasonal allergies; the mold and mildew that propagate after the rainy season have perfected mold conditions.

Periodically cleaning your sidings, or bringing professionals in to do it when you can’t, will keep a significant source of seasonal allergies under control. Lawn care and landscaping will help cut down on sources, while being aware of what you’re allergic to will help you identify allergens so you can wipe them out.
