How to reduce the effects of pollen this spring!
Colorado Springs has so many beautiful sites to see, hikes to hike, and beautiful greenery to take in! When spring comes around those fresh blossoming trees that we enjoy so much can start to become a problem when allergies arise!
There are three types of pollen that can bother our senses. They are tree, wag weed and tree pollen. Allergy symptoms such as itchy nose, coughing and sneezing start happening when these pollen spores blossom and release into the air.
Although we do not have control over what is in the air, we do have the opportunity to reduce the amount we are continuously exposed to!
- Start with good nutrition! Vitamin C helps prevent the early onset of allergies by lowering histamine levels in the blood stream, and this prevents the onset of allergies. Good sources of vitamin C include lemon, oranges, red peppers, kale, and broccoli.
- Minimize the amount of pollen you carry around. Our clothes are one of the biggest culprits to holding and dispersing pollen throughout the day. When you get home in the afternoon it is best to take a shower and change your clothes. Any pollen that latched onto your hair and clothing fibers will be eliminated.
- Get regular air ducts cleaning in your home. When the temperatures raise in Colorado Springs our A/C systems are on full blast! What a lot of people do not know is that our air ducts collect anything that is in the air including pollen! Regular cleanings of your air ducts will ensure the dust and pollen currently being dispersed throughout the home will be taken care of!
- Regularly clean anything that you come in contact with when you get home. This means the floors and couches. Although pollen can be hard to see, it is easy to spread with contact. So when you take a seat on your couch or walk on your carpets with your shoes, every step leaves pollen behind. We recommend regular upholstery cleaning and carpet cleaning to extract any settled pollen or dust that can be causing allergies.
