So it seems fall has officially arrived in our fair city; and just like the spring it brings with it a bunch of annoying allergens. We’ve found a few tips and tricks to help keep your space allergen free this fall.
You see those crisp, beautifully colour leaves falling from the tree outside? They’re carrying the biggest cause of fall allergies, mold. Whether it’s up to you, or your building maintenance worker, ensure those leaves get raked up as promptly as possible to avoid those nasty sneezing fits.
If you’re in a single family dwelling, make sure you clean your air filters. Allergens such as ragweed, mold and pollen will accumulate in you’re a/c and furnace filters throughout the summer, and be distributed throughout the house when you kick on that furnace for the fall chill.
Adding some leafy greens to your diet can help keep the allergy bug from biting. Broccoli and Kale are packed with both Vitamin C and Vitamin A to keep you feeling refreshed and allergy free this season.
Of course, if all else fails, keeping allergy medications handy isn’t a terrible idea. Pills, nasal sprays and even eye drops are great at combating the effects these fall allergens can have on us.
So try something this fall to help you avoid the itchy throat, sneezing and red eyes so you can instead enjoy the beautiful colours of fall.
