Guard Your Home Against Common Fall Allergens

Fall is a favorite time for many. With milder temperatures and lower humidity, the season is a welcome change from the sweltering heat of a southern summer. If you’ve got allergies, however, autumn can signal runny noses, sneezing, and itchy eyes. While outdoor allergies can be combated with the appropriate medicines and precautions, what can you do to prevent pesky allergens from invading your home? We’ve rounded up the three most common allergy-inducing culprits, along with a few ideas on how to keep your home a safe haven.


Pollen: Ragweed is a major offender when it comes to pollen. The yellow flowering weed blooms in August but causes problems well into the fall season, producing up to one billion grains of pollen per a single plant. A few common-sense precautions will help, including keeping your windows closed, vacuuming regularly, and keeping your air ducts clean. To protect your home from allergens, consider the REME HALO in-duct air purifier. In addition to pollen, it removes particulates, microbials, gases, mold spores, and more.  Find out more about it here!


Dust Mites: These microscopic critters are common year-round, but thrive when temperatures are in the high 60s to mid-70s, which coincides with autumn temps for Memphis. Consider covering your mattress and pillows in dust-proof covers, and be sure to wash all bedding in hot water at least twice a month. Clean air filters will help, as will using a filter with a MERV rating of 11 or 12 in your HVAC system.


Mold: Rainy fall days are the perfect time to curl up on the couch with a good book, but your downtime may be ruined by the presence of mold, which thrives in the damp. The key to guarding your home against mold is controlling the moisture level. Our humidifiers can help with that!

Allergy sufferers may be more worried than usual this year, because seasonal allergies and COVID-19 have symptoms in common. To find out key differences, visit the CDC website here.
