Tips for Reducing Allergens in the Home

Allergies can be a real nuisance and can make life at home uncomfortable. Dust, pet dander, mold, and pollen are all common allergens that can end up in your home. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the amount of allergens you’re exposed to and make your home more livable. Let’s take a look at a few tips for reducing allergens in the home.

Check Your Air Filters 

Make sure you’re changing your air filters on a regular basis; dirty air filters can trap airborne particles and spread them throughout your home. Choose high-efficiency filters if you have allergies or asthma; these filters are designed to catch even the smallest particles, making them more effective than standard filters. If you have questions about what kinds of filters are best for your home, reach out to the team at Bear AC and Heating! We will be happy to walk you through the options!

Regular Cleaning 

It may not sound like fun, but regular cleaning is one of the best things you can do to reduce allergens in your home. Vacuum carpets and furniture regularly with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA filter. This will help capture dust particles before they become airborne and cause problems. Don’t forget to clean hard surfaces as well; dusting with a damp cloth or using an electrostatic mop is the best way to get rid of those pesky dust bunnies!

Reduce Mold Growth

Mold loves moisture so it's important to keep humidity levels in check inside your house. Use dehumidifiers or exhaust fans while showering or cooking to reduce moisture levels inside the house. Make sure any leaks or water damage gets fixed right away too - that moisture is just what mold needs to thrive!. 


Allergies can certainly put a damper on life at home but fortunately there are ways you can fight back against them! Regular cleaning, checking air filters often, and reducing mold growth are all great steps towards making your home more comfortable for everyone living there! So don’t wait - start fighting those pesky allergens today! For more information on how your HVAC system can help prevent allergens, and make life more comfortable, call Bear AC and Heating.
