Avoiding Spring Allergies By Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley 3/29/2016 Our office is full of sniffles and sneezing. Allergy season is officially here! Are you suffering? A warm winter has caused plants to bloom earlier than normal, and the combination of blooming flowers, pollen in the air and warmer temperatures is a nightmare for allergy sufferers. Keep the following tips in mind if you are affected by seasonal allergies when spring arrives in your area: Take off your shoes as soon as you get home and leave them by the door. This will reduce the number of pollutants inside your home. Take a shower before you go to bed. This helps you avoid taking mold or pollen to bed with you.

Dust accumulated indoors over the course of the winter can sometimes be worse than outdoor allergies. Thanks for reading! What do you do to minimize allergies during the spring?
