  1. Use the air conditioner – Your cooling unit actually helps reduce the indoor pollen count. Before the Alabama heat and pollen count get intense, have you’re A.C. unit checked by a licensed professional. Yearly maintenance checks are the best way to insure that your system is working efficiently.
  2. Maintain the indoor temperature – an indoor temperature around 70 degrees. An unusually warm home provides the proper conditions for mold growth and according to heating and cooling specialists, attracts dust mites.
  3. Replace air filters – Changing air filters regularly is a quick way to contribute to improving your indoor air quality. Professionals suggest changing your filters once a month during high pollen seasons or if you have indoor pets. Change every two to three months for homes without pets or when Alabama is not fighting high outdoor allergens.
  4. Wipe Surfaces Weekly – One way to limit the allergens in your home is by damp wiping the hard surfaces such as shelving, tables, counters and floors.
  5. Indoor greenery –According to a 1980s study from NASA and the Associated Contractors of America, indoor plants were the most effective in improving indoor air quality. Some of the air-cleaning plants include Aloe plants, Spider plants, and Gerber daisies. Ficus, Azaleas and English Ivy were also found to increase air quality.
