Preventing Allergies This Summer

Reactions to grass pollen and other outdoor allergens are at their highest at this time of year, so it’s essential to make sure your home is free from allergens to promote a good nights sleep.

The best way to prevent hay fever and other allergic reactions is to avoid the allergen that causes your symptoms but if you are struggling with hay fever, you might find this task impossible. The most pragmatic step you can take is to get rid of any allergens present in your home…

What Is Hay Fever?

Allergies to pollen are known as hay fever and it this that causes the most allergic symptoms during the summer. Trees and grass release pollen particles into the air during the summer, causing plenty of mild yet uncomfortable allergic reactions in many people across the country.

  • Keep an eye on the weather reports as they often report the pollen count. Staying indoors when it is high is your safest bet.

  • Keep doors and windows throughout the home shut around mid-morning time and early evening, as this is when there is the most pollen in the air.

  • Shower often, wash your hair and change clothes after being outside as pollen can cling to the surface of almost anything and make it indoors.

  • Avoid grassy areas such as parks or fields and if you need to cut the grass in the garden, have someone else do it for you

  • Dry clothes indoors when the pollen count is high rather than outdoors

  • Have specialist cleaners visit your home and carry out a thorough allergy control service to rid your home of pollen and other suspected allergens e.g. dust mites or mould
