Allergy season is in full bloom! With another harsh allergy season ahead, taking measures to reduce allergens in your workplace is more important than ever.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has six recommendations for improving indoor air quality and reducing allergy symptoms:
* Control dust mites.
Keep surfaces clean and uncluttered. Bare floors and walls are best, but if your facility has carpet, professional cleaning removes dirt, pollen, allergens, dust and other particles deep within your carpet's fibers.
* Vacuum once or twice weekly.
Vacuuming helps keep allergens to a minimum, so speak with your cleaning contractor if you need to change your vacuuming schedule.
