How to Beat Allergies This Spring

For lots of Minnesotans spring is a season welcomed with open arms. But for others, those who suffer from seasonal allergies, it’s a dreaded time of year. Yes, the weather starts to get nicer once again with sunny days and warmer temperatures but spring also brings mold-causing humidity and pollen along with it. So to beat your allergy symptoms this spring, follow the tips below:

  1. Choose gardening time wisely. Pollen tends to peak between 5am and 10am so save your outdoor work for later in the day. It’s also a good idea to wear a mask and goggles while mowing the lawn.
     

  2. Remove shoes and jackets upon entering the house. These two articles of clothing can track pollen and other airborne pollutants into the home causing your symptoms to worsen.
     

  3. Ventilation is key. Too much humidity in the home can foster mold growth which can be harmful to you and your family members. Keep levels below 50% and run the air conditioner on warmer days rather than opening the windows.
