When you suffer from allergies, you often try to limit your contact with the outdoors - pollen can be a nightmare for some folks! But did you know that the quality of your indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than even the worst outdoor air? According to the EPA, indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental dangers, and if you have allergies, the problem is compounded. Fortunately, there are many steps you can take to clear the air and breathe easier.

It is one of the best times of the year in the Asheville area. Spring is here and with it an array of beautiful colors and smells. We have enjoyed a few rounds of snow showers this winter, not it is time to get outside and enjoy mild temperatures and incredible views. 

Your pets are likely loving the season as well. Rather than making quick trips outside while braving the chill, they are able to run and play. Your dog may sprint full speed into a field of wildflowers, while your cat may lounge in the sun of a flower bed. 

Spring hasn’t quite sprung yet - but there is no reason you can’t get a head start on giving your home the ultimate deep clean! In fact, now is the perfect time to knock off many of the chores we all tend to neglect most of the year. This way, you can make the best use of dreary winter days, spruce up your home, and give yourself the chance to fully enjoy the weather once spring finally arrives. 

For many of us, the urge to do a deep clean comes on in the spring. We’re eager to clear away the blahs of winter and start with a fresh, clean slate. But why wait? When the temperatures are colder, and maybe it’s a little too windy, rainy, snowy, or icy to head outdoors, put some elbow grease into doing a thorough cleaning. You’re spending more time inside, and removing strapped, stagnant dirty air will certainly help you breathe a big sigh of relief. 

The New Year brings new opportunities to achieve our most important goals… The key to ensuring that our resolutions last longer than a few days is to select those which are most important to us - and those that are most achievable. Why not start at home? A beautiful, peaceful, uncluttered, and clean home is a joy in itself - and it may just motivate us to go after our other resolutions!
