However, the seasonal shift does have it’s downfalls – more specifically, Spring allergy season, one of the most irritating times of year for allergy sufferers.

Spring Allergy Symptoms and Relief

To prep our health-conscious readers for the impending increase in sniffling and irritated eyes, we’ve outlined the following spring allergy symptoms and relief for the four main Spring allergies. Educate yourself now and help your health later!

spring allergy symptoms from pollen

Pollen Allergies

What Is It?

As the new year comes into bloom, pollen particles are produced by blooming plants, budding trees and fresh grass, then concurrently spread everywhere throughout the Spring season – causing all sorts of irritation symptoms for anyone with allergy sensitivities. Airborne pollen particles also trigger Hay Fever, an allergic reaction that affects over 30% of people worldwide.

Allergy Symptoms

– Sneezing
– Watery Eyes
– Nasal Congestion
– Runny Nose
– Itchy Throat
– Cough

Allergy Relief

Since outdoor winds carry those pesky pollen particles into your homes and airstream, avoiding the outdoors is essential to subsiding this prominent Spring allergy. However, that’s not always so easy. To keep pollen out of your home, keep your windows closed at all costs and brush off your coat before coming indoors. From there, implementing one of our Air Purifiers for Allergies will absorb any pollen particles that slipped through the cracks and keep your air quality at healthy levels, by using the same filters as hospital operating rooms.

Pet Dander Allergies

What Is It?

Pet dander is the material shed from animals – whether that be fur or dry skin particles. Although dander is present throughout the year, dogs and cats shed more dander during the Spring months, simply because the harmful outdoor elements are more prominent. For example, if your dog sheds a lot already…that loose hair is going be filled with even more harmful pollen particles, this Spring.

Allergy Symptoms

– Sniffling
– Sneezing
– Itchiness
– Watery Eyes

Allergy Relief

The only way to truly alleviate pet dander is by removing the animal(s) from your residence. But, we all know that’s not an option. To maintain your furry friends and limit allergic reactions to pet dander, thoroughly wiping them down after coming in from outside is extremely important. The next step to safeguard your home would be to implement one of our Air Purifier for Allergies, to serve as a safeguard for any unaccounted for pet dander particles.

dust allergies

Dust Allergies

What Is It?

We all know what dust is. It’s annoying, right? Well, unfortunately troublesome dust particles will only be getting worse this Spring, due to the increased amount of airborne particles swirling around the outdoors – including pollen, dirt and insect particles. Oh and don’t forget, houses with high humidity will end up with microscopic dust mites as well, which settle into fabrics within minutes of entering your indoor air.

Allergy Symptoms

– Itchy Eyes
– Watery Eyes
– Runny Nose
– Itchy Nose
– Sneezing

Allergy Relief

Since dust seems to inevitably collect in the cracks and crevices of your home, the key to minimal dust collection is to keep the outdoors elements where they came from. That means, windows need to stay closed, jackets and boots should be left at the door or in a closet, and rooms need to swept and dusted regularly. If that sounds like a lot of work, implement an Air Purifier For Dust in your main living area and our doctor-approved filters will inject 99.97% of those dust particles from the air, before they ever hit the ground.

Mold Allergies

What Is It?

Depending on the humidity in your home, mold could be present all year round. Yet, during the Spring months, mold spores are more prominent than cold Winter and Fall months because the air – in general – is more humid overall. Outdoor mold spores are often tracked indoors during outdoor activities like Spring cleaning, walking the dog, or going to to park with your family. Indoor mold spores are typically a result of improper temperature levels or leaks.

Allergy Symptoms

– Itchy Eyes
– Watery Eyes
– Runny Nose
– Itchy Nose
– Sneezing

Allergy Relief

To prevent indoor mold spores from growing, target the humid areas – places like basements and bathrooms – and wipe down the walls where perspiration is present. Then, fix any leaks in your home, for more of a long-term solution. In terms of outdoor mold spores, implementing one of our Air Purifiers For Allergies will abosrb mold spores from the air before they settle and ensure they never get a chance to grow and hinder your health.
