Many Georgia homeowners see springtime as a joyous time between the weary winter and the sizzling summer. But for allergy sufferers, it’s the time you dread the most.
Sneezing. Sniffling. Puffiness. It’s a pain. Most allergy sufferers try to power through it. But there are many ways to avoid these painful symptoms.
Here are 5 of them.
Here’s an example of a 4-day PollenCast of Atlanta, Georgia:
As you can see, you can get the PollenCast sent to your email so you don’t have to keep checking the website every day.
The major cause of mold growth is moisture. And, as you’re well aware, Georgia’s humidity/moisture levels are unbearably high around spring and summer.
To keep home humidity levels low, here are 3 cheap, natural solutions.
For greater humidity control, get a whole-house dehumidifier installed alongside your heating and cooling system to dehumidify the air circulating through your return vents.
Sometimes it’s just impossible to keep pollen out. So we suggest getting a whole-house air cleaner (also called an air purifier) to catch it.
An air cleaner is basically a super powerful air filter that’s installed next to your heating/cooling equipment. This air cleaning method is effective because your heating/cooling system is always circulating air (and the pollen with it). So the air cleaner will catch pollen as it goes through your return vents.
Now, you might be wondering, “Won’t my fiberglass air filter catch the pollen?”
Not much of it. Fiberglass filters are designed to catch larger particles to protect your heating/cooling system—not you.
