Do you find yourself constantly sneezing when you're at home? Or worse, the constantly itchy-nose feeling of not quiet sneezing? While allergies might be the cause, if home is more sneeze-worthy than any other place in the world, then you probably have a dust problem.
It's that time of the year when allergies are at their worst. Everyone is coughing and sneezing! The whole city is more congested than the roads during rush hour traffic!
You've tried everything, but it feels like the allergens made it into your home and have penetrated your air system. If that's your guess, you may not be that far off.
In every home, there's at least one maintenance task you've let go for a little too long. Maybe it's cleaning the leaves and twigs out of your gutters. Or wiping down the inside of your fridge. Or you haven't checked your smoke alarms in a long while. But for most people, one of the most often forgotten home maintenance tasks is to change your HVAC air filter.
Dust is a deeply held archetype in our culture. We all know the line "ashes to ashes and dust to dust," a variation on the King James translation of the Bible used in the English burial service:
"for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."
Energy bills are one of the largest expenses most homes have to deal with. Each month you are spending a large amount of money to keep the temperature in your home at a comfortable level. Wouldn't it be great if this bill was a little lower - allowing you to have more money in your wallet at the end of the month to spend on other things?
When you own a home, there is a lot that you need to take care. As is often the case, there is so much on your plate, that some of the smaller tasks get pushed aside. Maybe you don't dust behind the furniture as often as you should, or maybe that broken light switch in your basement remains broken for longer than you'd like.
As every homeowner knows, there are a lot of little things you need to do in order to keep your home running properly. These little tasks start taking up a lot of time when you add them together, and before long some of the tasks are being left behind.
Seasonal allergies are no one's idea of a good time, most people have at least one. Whether it's the pine pollen, ragweed, certain grasses, or you're not even sure what happens every spring that causes your sinuses to swell, the one good thing about seasonal allergies is that they pass.
Did you know that house plants do a lot more than just sit around getting watered and looking pretty? It might be hard to believe, but they're actually doing you and your family a big favor!
We all want to have clean air in our homes. When you take in a deep breath, you don't want the result to be a coughing attack or for any funky smells to enter into your nose. If you've been dealing with any problems related to air quality within your home, you're probably wondering what you can do.
