Hot and humid weather can trigger allergy symptoms. Sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and coughing are common allergy symptoms. Fortunately, you do not have to let your allergy symptoms ruin your summer fun. There are several things that you can do to alleviate your allergy symptoms.

Watch out for Mold

Mold can trigger or worsen allergy symptoms. Your dishwasher, refrigerator pan and air conditioner are some of the areas that often accumulate mold. If you have mold in your home, then you may also notice a musty smell. You can get rid of mold by using bleach. You will need to mix 1 quart of water with 1/2 cup of bleach. Use a soft brush and dip it in the mixture. Scrub until all of the mold is gone.

Clean Air

It is important for you to get air conditioner maintenance during the summer. Not only will it ensure that your HVAC services work properly but it can also reduce allergy symptoms. Your air conditioner helps remove the dust, dirt particles and pollen from the air. That is why if your air conditioner is working properly, then you will have an easier controlling your allergy symptoms.

One of the most common reasons that your AC breaks is due to not changing air filters causing air blockage. Set a reminder on your phone to change your air filter. If you want to make sure you change it when it becomes obstructed you can get a smart air filter that can tell you via an app when it needs changing.

Keep Your Home Clean

One of the keys to managing allergies is to maintain a clean home. Make sure that you vacuum your home at least once a week. The vacuum cleaner will pick up the dust, mold and pollen that you have trapped in your carpet. It is best to use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter.

You will need to use a non-toxic cleaner when you are wiping down your counters, bathroom and kitchen. Additionally, you should get rid of excess clutter. Dust is a common trigger for those with allergies. Make sure that you have someone cleaning the spots that we miss in the weekly routine. Think of fans, on top of cabinets and hard to reach dusty places. Clean your

Be Cautious When Using Sunscreen

It is important to wear sunscreen if you will be spending time outdoors. However, you will need to read the ingredients before you go outside. Esters, oxybenzone, PABA and 4-isopropyl-dibenzoylmethane are some of the ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction. It is best for you to use sunscreens that have titanium oxide and zinc oxide.

Bedtime Routine

You may be tempted to go to sleep after a long day at work. However, you may contaminate your pillow and sheets with allergens you bring home from the outside. If you do, you’ll be sleeping next to the allergens all night. Make sure you wash your linens more than regularly when allergies are high. Take a quick shower before bed to wash off all the allergens from outside your home to make sure your bed is allergen free. If your eyes are sensitive to allergies talk to your doctor about getting allergy eye drops you can use before bed. This will help freshen your eyes without contacts, or glasses and get them ready to go in the morning.

Allergies can make it difficult for you to enjoy the summer. The good news is that there are several steps that you can take to cope with this. You will need to remove mold, get air conditioner maintenance and keep your home clean. You will also need to be careful when you use sunscreen.
