It’s springtime here in South Florida! That means it’s time to get ready for plenty of sunshine, hordes of tourists, and a lot of perpetually blooming plants – which will bring a ton of pollen. Where there is pollen, there are allergies – which affects millions of people around the world who suffer from the sneezing, coughing, itchy throats, rashes, and difficulty breathing that they bring. But, that’s not all! With Miami’s subtropical heat and rain, the effects of allergies can become even more amplified.
“Indeed, Florida’s allergy season is longer and stronger than most of the rest of the United States, with different allergen-producing foliage peaking earlier and at different times of the year,” reports the Miami Herald. “So, Floridians may have more sun, sand and surf, but they also have more wheezing, sneezing and sniffling.”
If you plan to get through this spring allergy season in South Florida without sneezing your nose off, you are going to need some insider’s information on how to prepare. That’s because preparing for the upcoming season of pollen’s pervasive powers is no easy task. However, it can be done. It just requires some knowledge and planning to ensure that allergies don’t take over! It’s a good thing then that there are simple steps that you can take to ensure that your air is traveling safely throughout the house.
How can I properly prepare for the allergy season?
In order to defeat your enemy, you must first know your enemy. The main variables you should be concerned with controlling when preparing for the allergy season in South Florida are bacteria, mold, dander, your indoor air quality, and all pollutants. However, the pollens and spores that generate the most allergic reactions can be regulated through air purification and duct cleaning.
Your air ducts are where the air purification process in your home begins. It is important to keep them as clean as possible in order to maintain a healthy and safe air supply throughout your home. If you haven’t had your air ducts inspected or cleaned in awhile, you are increasing the risk of allergen contamination inside your home.

Have visible signs of mold or other growth? Seen any vermin inside of your air ducts? Then you should seriously consider hiring Direct Air Conditioning in Miami for professional air duct cleaning services. We use proven duct-cleaning techniques to ensure that your ducts are clean and spotless.
To survive allergy season in Miami, you must be proactive!
One way to be proactive is to get tested now to determine specifically what pollens you are allergic to. That way, you can start treatment before the allergy season hits full bloom. Additionally, you can shower after outdoor activities to remove any clinging pollen, you can participate in outdoor activities after it rains (or in the evening) when pollen counts are generally lower, and you can use your air conditioning to filter your indoor air.
