Look beyond the home when fighting allergies

Fighting allergies is not something that is only done inside a home. Most people who deal with spring allergies must contend with irritants while they are driving, exercising, socializing or working, and the allergens can prove to be especially distracting during these times. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks that should help and individuals breathe easier at all times - even if they are in a car. 

Most people will probably be spending lots of time in their vehicles during the coming weeks, whether just for their work commutes or for long road trips. First, all drivers should make sure to change their car's air filter. This can become clogged, which then allows allergens to make their way to the interior.

It's also a good idea to keep a pair of sunglasses on hand in the car, as irritants can aggravate the eyes. Glasses can keep many of these particles from coming into contact with the eyes while also ensuring that watery eyes are not as affected by the bright sun. 

Drivers should also be sure to regularly wash their cars so the vehicles don't become pollen carriers. Individuals will have to leave the comforts of their homes sometime in the spring, and even those with the best home air purifiers around a space will face challenges outdoors. Let the IQAir HealthPro Plus take care of a home while these tips ease allergies behind the wheel.
