Spring Allergies In Your Home

March 31, 2023 | Blog

Are you experiencing seasonal allergies inside your home? There are several sources that can make your home in Birmingham have bad air quality — one can be all the pollen in our area that arrives in the spring season!

If you’re unsure about the current air quality situation inside your home and you think you’re developing allergies from it, then Skelton’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is here to help you! We concentrate on the well-being of your home by providing our locals with professional IAQ services. We’re here for your Birmingham air quality testing needs!

Common Allergens In Birmingham

Like every area in the country, Birmingham has its own unique natural allergens. These particles tend to increase in the spring because the plants they come from are flowering and ready for the pollination season. The most common sources of allergens in our area come from grasses, trees and weeds.

Especially in the spring, most allergy-prone homeowners feel the effects of juniper, sycamore and oak trees. If you are sensitive to the air in the spring, you likely suffer from one of these pollens!

Allergy Symptoms

A long-time exposure to bad-quality air can lead to negative health effects for you and your family. You want to avoid inhaling any particles that may be floating in the air because if they do, your body can react to the irritants.

Poor IAQ can cause your allergy symptoms to act up when you least expect it. Common signs and symptoms from exposure to poor indoor air include:

  • Sinus pressure
  • Headaches
  • Congestion
  • Trouble breathing
  • Eye irritations

If you notice that your allergy symptoms tend to increase even inside your home, you may have an issue with your IAQ. It’s time to pinpoint which allergens are causing you trouble and reduce their presence as much as possible.

Reduce The Allergens In Your Home

There are several easy habits that you can adapt in your home to reduce the number of allergens that gain access to your living areas. The more you can do to keep these tiny particles at bay, the more comfortable you’ll become during allergy season!

  • Leave shoes and outer clothes outside the door
  • Vacuum and wipe surfaces frequently
  • Groom any outdoor pets thoroughly
  • Change your sheets and towels frequently

With these small tasks a part of your daily life, you’ll have more control over the particles causing you discomfort!

What Our Customers Are Saying

We had a great experience with Skelton’s!

We had a great experience with Skelton’s! Our dog damaged the wiring on our A/C condenser, and it stopped working while the highs were still in the 80’s. Skelton’s came out the next day and got our condenser working again. Would recommend them and use them again!

Very Professional and Responsive

Skelton’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is very professional and responsive. I was able to request service via an online service request form one evening and was called promptly the next morning. I was subsequently able to have service performed within 2 hours. When your AC is not working this is like finding gold! I highly recommend them.
