Spring Allergy: Keeping the Yellow Pollen Out of Your House

Shorter days and plunging temperatures are gone and yellow pollen, longer days, and sunshiney weather herald spring. For many, itchy, watery eyes remind one that beautiful but provocative blossoms can be challenging for allergy sufferers.

Mold can be tramped into your garage

Anyone can experience hay fever in spring, and often it is because of pollen. In fact, pollen is the most common culprit when it comes to a trigger for springtime allergies.

Pollen can settle everywhere and that’s why you want professionals to clean your HVAC system. It’s not only pollen that can cause flu-like symptoms because mold can also give you a stuffy nose, headaches, red, itchy eyes, and even respiratory problems. It’s why the garage mold removal team from WMF Restoration is in such demand.

Mold thrives in dark, dampish areas and mold spores can even stick on shoes. You’re in and out of your garage all the time and mold in the garage is common. Fortunately, the best mold removal company can ensure mold isn’t competing with your cars for space in your garage.

Vacuum your carpets more often

Pollen is a fine powdery substance that is released from plants. It can cause quite serious eye conditions such as conjunctivitis or pink eye.

If you’re uncertain about whether you are allergic to pollen, you can take some of the pollen and scratch it onto the skin’s surface. After about 20 minutes, there will be a reaction. If you’re at home, one tip you can use to minimize your exposure to pollen is to, first of all, clean your spectacles often.

Another useful thing you can do is hang up some damp-to-wet towels indoors to help capture pollen floating in the air. You should also vacuum your carpets more often than you usually do and sweep your falls.

Ask your pharmacist for a solution

Spring means an increase in pollen, but apart from pollen, there are other airborne allergens and these include pet dander, dust, and mold spores. Being exposed to all of these may well affect your skin, your nose, throat, and eyes.

There are no permanent cures for allergies as such, but you can always ask your pharmacist for some kind of a solution. Many people around the world are affected by an allergy, and with Covid-19 raging around, yellow pollen seems like such an inoffensive substance.

But be that as it may, it can still cause a lot of discomfort with people suffering from fever, rhinitis, and even asthma.

Slow down with flowery garnishes

An allergy is the body’s adverse reaction to a substance such as pollen that, to most other people, doesn’t cause harm. These allergens include dust, dander, and pollen.

Foods can also be a source of allergy and there are some flowers and their pollen that can be eaten. But be careful, as some are poisonous and may cause adverse reactions. Only eat flowers if you are sure they aren’t poisonous.

These edible flowers are great for adding color and flavor to garnishes and other dishes. You have to be careful because ingestion of even edible flowers for some can result in allergic reactions, more so with those who have pollen allergies.

Invest in an air purifier

The winter is gone and you’ve been waiting patiently for the spring and summer to arrive. You want to throw open your windows and let the fresh air in. But that’s just it, tempting though it may be, pollen time is when your windows need to be shut. If that idea spells gloom and doom for you, you can always invest in a good air purifier.

These can remove almost 100% of pollutants in your air, and with pollen season, these air purifiers can be seen as the ultimate answer in bringing relief during the pollen season.
