Allergies can get in the way of enjoying time outside with your family. All of the different kinds of pollen will assault your sinuses as soon as you walk outside. But, did you know that there are also allergens in your home that can affect you? The dust, grime, dirt, etc. in your air vents, continually being blown through your home can make you miserable as well. You should be able to have some escape from the itchy eyes and runny nose!

The EPA says, “In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air inside homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the external air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research says that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Therefore, for many people, the dangers to health may be larger due to more exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.”

If you aren’t sure what could hold allergens in your home, here are just a few:

    Pets
    Furniture
    Stuffed Animals
    Damp Areas
    Bedding
    Wall-to-Wall Carpet
    Mattresses Not in an Allergy Cover
    Pillows and Bedding You Can’t Wash in Hot Water

All of the indoor allergens on those items can also be flying through the air and getting stuck in your vents as you sit on your couch or bed, your dog walks around, etc. It is essential to make sure that you are dusting, vacuuming, etc. regularly.

Cleaning your air vents and ducts is also essential. If you are keeping your house clean and dust free, you don’t want your vents to blow all of that stuff back into the air and on your surfaces.
