Tips on Managing Your Child’s Allergies This Spring

You want the air in your Wylie, Texas, home as clean as possible, especially if you have a child who suffers from allergies or asthma. Poor indoor air quality can trigger allergy attacks that leave your children miserable. Here are tips to help you manage spring allergies in your home.

Keep Your HVAC System Maintained

Dirt, dust, pollen, pet dander, and dust mites can trigger allergy symptoms. These pollutants build up in the ducting and filters of your HVAC system and get blown into your house every time you turn the air conditioner or heater on. When we come for regular maintenance on your system, our technicians will change the air filters and inspect the heating and air conditioning units to ensure they are clean and free from potentially hazardous contaminants.

Install an Air Cleaner

One of the best ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality is by having an air cleaner installed. Our Trane Clean Effects Air Cleaner can trap the tiniest of harmful particulates, as small as 0.1 microns. The filters in the air cleaner remove over 99 percent of pollutants that trigger allergy symptoms. The air you breathe in your home will be much cleaner and healthier with an air cleaner.

Vacuum Regularly With a HEPA Filter

Cleaning your home frequently will help remove dirt and dust. It’s important to vacuum regularly to eliminate the particles that trigger allergies. However, most vacuum cleaners are not very efficient at removing the contaminants. Look for a vacuum cleaner that uses High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters. Most vacuums that utilize HEPA filters can effectively remove over 90 percent of particulates that are as small as 0.3 microns in diameter. Removing these pollutants will make your home cleaner, and you’ll see that your child has fewer allergy symptoms.
