Suffering From Allergies?

There are some simple things you can do to help control your allergies. 

At Home Tips
Dust your home using a moist cloth or special dry cloth that will trap dust. Using a feather duster can lift dust into the air increasing allergens.
 
Vacuum often using a vacuum with a filter that is sealed. A vacuum that leaks dust will make your indoor air quality worse.

Shut out pollen by keeping your doors and windows closed as much as possible.

Change your in-home air filters regularly.

Outdoor/Travel Tips
Try to stay indoors during peak pollen hours 10 AM - 4 PM. 

Keep car windows closed.

Try to limit outdoor activity during windy and humid days.

Wear a face mask outdoors.

Shower after spending time outside to wash pollen off your skin and out of your hair.
