When I was a kid, I had the worst allergies. All year round, my pollen irritations were at an all time high! I wasn’t allergic to anything in particular, but my physicians called them “seasonal” allergies. I didn’t understand how that could be possible, especially because my pollen irritations weren’t just from a single season! Regardless, I took dust sensitivity medication quarterly as well as pushed through. It wasn’t until I was older that I realized my pollen irritations were a product of my environment! When I moved into a new apartment, my pollen irritations got worse and I decided to consult my property owner. He sent over an HVAC specialist to check things out, and the HVAC specialist informed me how the vents in my apartment were filthy as well as needed to be cleaned. He cleaned out the vents as well as filters as well as found that they were covered in dust as well as debris! It took him only a few hours to do the work, surprisingly. The next day, I dusted and cleansed the apartment from ceiling to floor to keep the pollen out. After a few days, I felt my pollen irritations subside! I wasn’t sneezing all day, nor were my eyes being itchy. I was confused – I did some research online as well as found that many people stated their pollen irritations got better after cleaning out their vents as well as filters. I couldn’t think that such a simple solution made such a large difference! When I asked my parents if they ever heard of this option, they said they hadn’t. I wish they did; it would have made my childhood pollen irritations much more bearable! All that matters now is that my pollen irritations have gotten much better – I can finally breathe with ease!
