At Quality Plumbing & Heating Inc., our experts can help you fight itchy, watery eyes and other allergy symptoms. Today we are providing our top four tips for reducing allergies within your home.

1. Change Filters
Changing your home’s air filters is one of the best ways to clean the air in your home. It is advised to do so a minimum of every three months, making adjustments depending upon the quality of your air filters and severity of allergies. As a Quality Plumbing & Heating Inc. customer, you also have the option of signing up for one of our service plans known as Family Savings Plans. Family Savings Plan members receive services including A/C and furnace precision tunes and access to high-quality filters at discounted rates.
2. Keep Surfaces Clean
Wiping down surfaces often will help to control allergens on countertops and shelves. In addition, vacuuming rugs and carpets frequently will help to remove allergy-inducing particles. This will help to minimize outdoor allergens that make their way indoors. Another option would be to offer doormats at every entrance, allowing people to wipe excess dirt and allergens off their shoes so that they don’t get tracked throughout your house.
3. Update Home Filtration Systems
Mold, chemicals, and bacteria can be trapped within the ducts of your home’s HVAC system. Our experts can help provide a thorough diagnosis and make the best recommendations for your home. Whether you need duct cleaning, system maintenance, or updated HVAC equipment, we can help remove allergens. These same solutions will help to remove any home odors due to smoking, pets, or other causes. This could be particularly helpful when moving into a new home.
4. Bathe Pets Often
Our furry friends are part of the family. However, their fur and dander can contribute to family allergies. Frequent bathing can help keep allergens to a minimum. This will also help keep your home and vacuum filters clean and reduce some dust build-up in the home.
