While spring can be a beautiful time of year, it can also be a nightmare worth running away from for allergy sufferers. This time of year, there is more dust in the air, along with a host of other allergens, and the fact is that there’s sometimes nowhere you can escape them!
You can try to avoid the outdoors, but even indoors, the air quality is sometimes low enough that your allergy symptoms are in full effect. While you may not be able to run away from your allergies outside, or in your place of business, you may be able to create a safe haven for your respiratory system in your home.
The experts at The Plumbing & Air Service Co. have compiled some information to help you run from your allergies this season. First, let's look at what exactly your allergy symptoms are and why you have them.
Do You Have a Cold, or Just Allergy Symptoms?
There are certain symptoms that are commonly associated with seasonal allergies, such as:
- Stuffy nose
- Skin irritation
- Red, itchy, watery eyes
- Runny nose
While a lot of these are known to be connected to allergies, most are also known symptoms of a common cold. The problem then becomes treating the symptoms.
If you assume that your head hurts and your nose is stuffy, and your eyes are itchy because you have a cold, you’ll take some cold medicine and do nothing at all about the environment you’re living in.
If you know that you have allergies, however, you can address the environmental factors that are causing your allergies.
Duct Cleaning May Help Reduce Your Symptoms
What are those environmental factors that affect allergies? The two biggest culprits are dust and pollen, which is why allergies tend to be more common during the spring.
While you can't do anything about the dust and pollen outside your door (other than taking your allergy medicine and keeping your inhaler handy), you can take steps to rid your home and air of these allergens.
Changing your air filter monthly helps reduce dust in the air, but a lot of it still settles in your ductwork. A professional duct cleaning may be just what you need to create the perfect place to hide from allergy symptoms this season!

Sometimes professional services go beyond having a clean house into medical assistance. You can prevent this from happening by contacting HVAC pros, like the ones at The Plumbing & Air Service Co.!
