Replace Your Air Filters
Most people associate allergies with the spring season as flowers begin to bloom and the grass begins to grow again. However, fall comes with its own set of allergens. For most people, their main allergen trigger is pollen, so while the normal triggers aren’t in play, there’s one plant that is still producing pollen. That plant is ragweed, and studies have shown that about 75% of people allergic to spring plants also have allergic reactions to ragweed!
The best way to eliminate the effects of ragweed allergies and all allergies, for that matter, is by consistently replacing the air filters in your home. While you can get away with doing this every 90 days, we recommend replacing them more frequently if your allergies are bothering you.
Schedule Fall Maintenance
Don’t forget to schedule maintenance for your heating system! We recommend doing this before it gets really cold so that we can catch any issues before they become major problems for you. Stay warm and comfortable all fall and winter long with a tune-up!
Rotate Your Wardrobe
The changing of seasons is an excellent time to go through your clothing collection. Take the time to sort through all of the pieces you’ve collected over the years and determine when you last wore them and whether you think you’ll really wear them again. This process is also a great time to invite friends over so they can pick out any items they might want to take home, which extends the lifespan of that clothing item. You can also try selling those tossed aside pieces or donating them!
As you put all of the clothing back in place, put the spring and summer items towards the back of your closet, and move those coats, sweaters, pants, and scarves up so that they’re more accessible. This will make it easier for you to make sure you’re wearing all of your clothes.
