Relief for Allergies: What Culprits Make Your Allergy Symptoms Spring Out of Control?


Having allergy symptoms to pollen is not uncommon. Pollen is a tiny, powdery substance released by plants during their reproductive cycles. As pollen develops on trees in early spring and grass later in the season, contact with this allergen can trigger sneezing, itchy eyes, and congestion.


Mold loves damp environments, which is why mold allergens thrive in the spring. Often found among wet piles of fallen leaves and the like, mold spores released into the air can trigger similar allergy symptoms to pollen.


Often, people suffer from allergic reactions that aren’t triggered by specific allergens, but are reactions to insect contact or bites. From itching and rashes to shortness of breath, be sure you know the difference between bite allergies and normal insect bite reactions.


Dust mites are tiny creatures that live within dust inside your home and can make allergy symptoms spring out of control. During the height of the spring allergy season, dust mites increase as air inside your home becomes more stagnant after a season of closed windows. If allergic, you may experience sneezing, congestion, and more.

Relief for Allergies: Tacking Your Symptoms Inside and Out

When Indoors:

To avoid having your allergy symptoms spring out of control while inside, these tactics can help you enjoy relief for allergies year-round!

  • Know your local allergy and pollen levels, as high concentrations may impact your indoor air
  • On dryer, windy days, consider staying indoors and enjoying Healthy Air at home
  • Wash sheets and towels in hot water to deter dust mites
  • Avoid hanging laundry out to dry, as pollen can stick to fabrics and make its way inside your home
  • Vacuum and dust regularly
  • Arm your home and HVAC system with an AprilAire Whole-House Air Purifier with allergen-fighting AprilAire MERV 16 Air Filter
  • Ensure indoor humidity levels fall between 40–60%* using an AprilAire Whole-House Humidifier in the winter and Dehumidifier in the summer so allergens can’t thrive or survive

When Outdoors:

  • Ask others for help with outdoor chores to avoid having your allergy symptoms spring up
  • After a day outside, be sure to shower and change to remove stuck-on pollen 
  • Consider eye protection, like sunglasses, to shield your eyes from floating pollen particles
