Don’t Let Allergens Ruin Your Fall Fun

air duct cleaning

When you think of allergies, you probably think of spring allergies like flower pollen, but allergens can be heavily present in the fall as well and cause itchy eyes, sneezing, sinus headaches, and more. Our air duct cleaning company reminds you that the cooler temperatures of fall can bring several allergy triggers, including:

Ragweed

Ragweed pollen is the most common fall allergen. In fact, around 75 percent of people who are allergic to spring plants are also allergic to ragweed. Though it doesn’t grow everywhere, the wind can transport its pollen hundreds of miles and affect large areas.

Mold

The hot temperatures of summer paired with periods of rain can easily breed mold spores for the fall. In addition, piles of leaves are perfect areas for mold to grow. These mold spores can also travel through the air and affect people with seasonal allergies.

Dust

Dust mites are common during the humid days of summer, but they can easily be spread around your home when you turn on your heater and cause sneezing, runny noses, and more.

Air Duct Cleaning

Many of these fall allergies are found outside, but they can also easily travel indoors through open windows, open doors, open vents, and more. Your HVAC filter should do a good job of filtering out these allergens (providing you changed it after the summer season). However, ragweed pollen, mold, and dust can all become trapped inside your ducts and circulate through your home. That’s where Oliver comes in. Our air duct cleaning experts can remove the allergens trapped in your ducts to give you fresh, clean air to breathe.
