When your allergies start acting up in Sarasota, Florida, your first instinct might be to make an appointment with your doctor. What you may not realize is that you can keep your allergy symptoms under control by investing in technologically advanced services and solutions. Check out these options to see if they can help you keep your sniffles and sneezing at bay.

Air Purifiers

An air purifier is a helpful and easy-to-use solution that removes allergens from your indoor air, reducing your symptoms. Many people don’t realize that their allergy symptoms tend to worsen when they’re indoors.

An HVAC system often traps and moves pollen, pet hair, dander, dust and other contaminants as it runs. When you breathe in the air, these particles can irritate your nasal passages and lungs, causing symptoms like congestion, sneezing, itchy eyes or sore throats.

With many options on the market, it’s not easy to choose the right air purifier for your home. An HVAC service technician can assess your home’s needs and install a whole-home purifier that works with your system. You can also use a smaller purifier to treat the air in one room.

Duct Cleaning

As the contaminants move around in the air within your home, they can settle in your ducts and cause allergy symptoms throughout the changing seasons. Regular duct cleaning can help reduce symptoms by removing the allergy-causing particles from the HVAC system.

Natural Cleaning Options

Many people suffer from allergies to harsh chemicals and volatile organic compounds released when you use certain types of cleaning products. Use all-natural options, such as vinegar and water, to clean surfaces in your kitchen and bathrooms while killing bacteria.

Baking soda mixed with water is a more abrasive option for cleaning tough stains. Lemon juice can dissolve soap buildup and hard water stains on fixtures. Rubbing alcohol and water is a great choice for removing streaks from windows and mirrors.
