Start Spring Off Right: Your Spring Cleaning Checklist
April 20th, 2016 by admin
With the arrival of spring, there is no better time than now to transition your home into the new season. When getting your house ready for spring, don’t forget to check your air ducts for blockages and repair any HVAC damages from the winter.
The drastic change in climate means an increase of pollen and mold in the air, which means it’s time for allergy season. To reduce allergy triggers in your home and ensure healthy air quality, be sure to clean out your AC air filters at least once a month.
While this is a common repair you can do yourself, if you’re unsure of what filter your AC requires or need someone else to do the work to replace it, call a professional to help with the process.
In addition, if you have a dehumidifier be sure to check it for mold before beginning to use it again. Mildew builds up easily if it wasn’t cleaned properly before storage over the winter. Damp, humid air provides the ideal setting for mold growth in your home.
Dehumidifiers prevent mold by decreasing the amount of moisture in the air and controlling your home’s overall humidity. They also eliminate dust mites, which reproduce rapidly in warm, humid environments. Need to repair your dehumidifier or purchase a new one?

Another solution for those who deal with allergies, asthma, or sensitivities to air pollutants is to get an air purifier for your home. As implied, these devices are designed to clean the air throughout your house and improve the quality of air you breathe. Using filters, air purifiers help eliminate pollutants, pollen, mold, pet dander, and irritants like cigarette smoke from the air.
