If you suffer from allergies, you likely don’t look forward to spring as much homeowners who don’t. According to the most recent allergy reports, the levels of pollen in the air have fluctuated from low to high. Oak, mulberry and grasses are currently the biggest threats in El Paso, Texas. Read on to learn how to ease severe allergy symptoms this spring.
Run Your Air Conditioner
Running your air conditioner can help prevent pollen from lingering in your home. Before turning the AC system on, it’s important to make sure it has a clean filter. As tempting as it is to open them, keep windows and doors closed.
Put the Houseplants Outside
Your indoor plants probably cheered you up during winter’s dreariest days. But now that spring is here, set them outside. If you can’t put some of your plants outside, prevent microbial growth indoors by not watering them too much.
Exercise Later in the Day
Exercising in the morning feels refreshing. But if the flowering plants and trees are worsening your allergy symptoms, consider exercising later in the day. The highest pollen counts occur between 5 A.M. and 10 A.M. The best time for any outdoor activities is after a heavy rainfall in El Paso. The worst is on a warm, dry and windy day.
