My allergies are worse this year than they have ever been before. I don’t know what’s going on around here with all of the pollen, but I wish that it would just stop already. I am sick and tired of all of the coughing and the sneezing, that’s for sure. Nothing seems to be helping this year, even my regular allergy medications. I actually called up my allergy doctor and he doesn’t have an opening at his office until the first week of September! I guess everyone is suffering this year. The receptionist at the allergy doctor actually gave me some advice though. She said that a lot of people were having luck with having their ventilation systems cleaned out by a professional HVAC technician. Apparently, when you have a professional ductwork cleaning job done, it can get rid of some of the pollen that may be trapped in your home’s ventilation system. Getting rid of the pollen equals getting rid of some of those allergens that are making you miserable. I thanked her for her advice then I immediately called up my local HVAC company to see if they could come out and clean the ductwork in my house for me. They made an appointment for me for next week, and I literally cannot wait to get them into my house. I’m going to ask them to put an anti allergen filter in my air conditioning system too. I might actually even talk to them about a whole home air purification system. At this point, I’m willing to do just about anything to get rid of the pollen.
