2 minute read

You try your best to stay healthy this time of year by getting flu shots and washing your hands regularly, but don’t forget about fall allergies. Fall can be the worst time of the year for allergy sufferers, especially those sensitive to ragweed. Prevent fall allergies in your house with a whole-home air purifier.

How can fall allergies affect your family? The air in your home can become filled with irritants in a number of ways. Let’s say it’s your turn to throw the post-game party for your kid’s soccer team, or you’re hosting a gameday get-together with friends. In these situations, lots of people are moving in and out of your home, bringing with them allergens, dirt, and dust. This can jeopardize the health of your home environment and make the fall season uncomfortable for your family.

It's Always Healthy Air Season

Prevent Fall Allergies in Your House

Try out some simple steps to keep the air in your home fresh and breathable throughout the fall allergy season.

Keep Fall Allergens Out

Common fall allergens like ragweed, pollen, and mold can stick to your shoes and clothes, especially after you’ve done yard work or other outdoor activities. One way to prevent fall allergies in your home is to set up a space in your garage to keep shoes and jackets. If you don’t have a garage, try to keep them contained in the front closet, and make sure to change out of outdoor clothes before moving throughout your home. This can actually keep your home more clean year-round.

Clean Regularly

Dust is a nuisance any time of year, so it’s important to regularly sweep and vacuum all areas of the home to prevent asthma irritations.

Mold is an even bigger concern in the fall, especially if warmer temperatures linger and prevent the first freeze from killing off spores and other particles. Old piles of wet leaves can quickly lead to mold issues that can be brought into your home, and other damp outdoor conditions can seep into your basement. Use a dehumidifier if necessary, and don’t allow wet garments to sit for long periods of time.

Breathe Easy

Using an air purifier is a great way to keep your home healthy and prevent fall allergies. Whole-home purifiers can remove allergens of all sizes (including ragweed, mold, dust, and more), and it’s all done in the background using your preexisting heating and cooling system. Plus, our air purifiers can be controlled and programmed with your phone through our Wi-Fi thermostats. This allows you to schedule air cleanings after you host an event or if allergy counts are particularly high, helping to keep your entire home environment consistently healthy.
