With a little bit of planning and some helpful resources, allergy sufferers can enjoy the beautiful outdoor landscape too.
Check your local weather report for the pollen count. Stay indoors with windows closed when the count is high.
Clean your heating system (heater, vents, filter, etc.) before you turn it on the first time. Mold and other allergens can collect and get trapped in/on the systems and will fill the air once turned on.
Wear a mask when you mow the lawn or rake leaves, to keep those pesky mold spores away.
Use a dehumidifier to keep your air between 35-50% humidity.
If you have allergy medications, take them. If symptoms worsen, visit your doctor.
