5 Tips to Keep Seasonal Allergy Symptoms Under Control

  • 1 min read

With spring right around the corner, it can seem like the worst time of year for those who suffer from seasonal allergy symptoms. Allergy symptoms occur when a substance like pollen, dust, or dander stimulates a reactive response in your body, causing you to sneeze, sniffle, and have itchy, watery eyes. Thankfully, there are a few simple steps you can take to reduce these types of particles at home, and hopefully help you avoid the symptoms triggered by them.

Keep Things Clean

Dust, pollen, and other airborne particles love to sneak around when you’re not looking. Window curtains, countertops, bookshelves—even our mattresses and pillows can fall prey to dust mites and other irritants. Regularly dusting, sanitizing, and using special mattress and pillow protectors can significantly reduce allergy symptoms. And don’t forget to poke around in all the hidden nooks and crannies like under the bed where these irritants like to set up camp.

Our helpful sidekick: The Levoit LVAC-200 Cordless Stick Vacuum enables you to clean even the hardest-to-reach places. With included attachments, 5-stage filtration, and a cordless design, this vacuum is your ticket to easy cleaning.

Let an Air Purifier Do the Work

Some irritants and particles you can see and clean, but some float right by, barely visible to the naked eye. An air purifier can catch these airborne particles before they settle into your home, trapping gunk like pollen, dust, pet dander, and household odors, leaving behind fresh air.

Our helpful sidekick: The Levoit Vital 200S Smart Air Purifier is perfect for living rooms and bedrooms. Completely filtering a 380 ft² room 5 times per hour, this air purifier offers the best of both worlds with top-of-the-line air purification and easy smart control.

Restrict Pollen From Coming Indoors

The more pollen that finds its way into your home, the more likely your allergy symptoms will be triggered. Keep windows and doors closed as often as possible, and try not to leave indoor items outside for pollen hitchhikers to get a free ride into your home. Take your shoes off as soon as you come inside, and any four-legged friends should probably get their paws wiped down, too. Lastly, taking a shower before going to sleep can make sure any pollen that got stuck to your clothes or skin from the day doesn’t make it into your bed.

Prevent Mold

With mold spores that cause allergy symptoms, prevention is key. Mold thrives in humid, wet environments, so it’s important to make sure that wet laundry, towels, and other fabrics are quickly and thoroughly dried. Indoor plants can also, unfortunately, be a breeding place for mold, especially in poorly ventilated areas. If you suffer from allergies, relocating plants to an outdoor space may help soothe symptoms.

We hope these tips allow you to enjoy the warm, sunny weather this spring without all the unpleasant symptoms of seasonal allergies.
