10 Ways to Steer Clear of Pollen and Help with Indoor Air Quality
Do you get up in the morning and have a stuffy nose and then you make the mistake of itching your eyes? Then all day, you are miserable or you have taken medication to help each of your symptoms that then makes you feel groggy or fuzzy. So then you can’t wait to get into bed so you can shut your eyes because they are burning and itching. Then you start the process all over again the next day.
Steer clear of pollen by:
- Keeping pets out of the bedroom. Pets that go outdoors bring in the pollen on their fur.
- Keeping windows closed to keep the pollen from floating into your home.
- Keeping windows closed in a car, run AC but with the air re-circulating. Don’t pull the air from outside.
- Replacing your furnace and AC filters with MERV rated filters of 12 and change every 2-3 months or invest in a MicroPower Guard, OxyQuantum LED, and PureSept HEPA equipment to eliminate 99.97% airborne particles and toxic gases, as well as scrub the air.
- Checking pollen counts by visiting www.weather.com to see how high the levels are in your area and then plan your day accordingly.
- Wearing sunglasses to help protect your eyes from allergens.
- Showering before going to sleep to get the pollen off your hair and skin before contaminating your sheets and pillow with pollen.
- Wearing a mask if you have to mow the yard or hire somebody to do yard maintenance for you.
- Washing your hands throughout the day and using hand sanitizers.
- Allergy proofing your bed by placing your mattress, box springs, and pillows in airtight plastic fabric covers.
